Greedy Ba*tards. I'd be happy to get my engine running with one turbo.

Nissan have a 3 cylinder 1.5 turbo engine in their record breaking hybrid that they claim puts out 400bhp and 380 ft/lb's... and weighs 40kg...

Tiny bore on the exhaust manifold, maybe suggesting how we should be designing these on our home built turbo engines.

Are there many examples of thermowrapped exhausts on production cars?
