Default What is the best way to Quad Turbo-Charge my Honda Civic?

I am thinking of a layout similar to that of the Veyron. I need it to be at least a ten second car. What horsepower are we talking here? I am thinking of adding a lot of NOS too.

Adding 4 turbos AND nitrous is a recipe for disaster unless you're willing to fork over about $20k to have the engine built to handle that kind of power. You can't get a 10 second car with bolt-ons. You have to go through and strengthen the rotating assembly, valvetrain, etc. Then you have to have a transmission that will handle that kind of power, brakes and tires that will stop the car at speed.

10 seconds is definitely attainable, but not without some spending, and LOTS of planning. And it doesn't require 4 turbos and nitrous. A well-built car with a single turbo can hit 10 seconds pretty easilly.

You can add as many turbos as you want because turbos don't work that way. If you have a turbo that peaks at 10 psi and one that peaks at 20psi it doesn't mean you get 30psi in combustion it means that you get 20psi peak in combustion. The reason for twin turbocharging is to provide lower boost at lower rpms while the bigger turbo spools...the veyron does this on both sides of it's v (technically w) configuration to take advantage of exhaust provided by both exhaust manifolds (i.e. headers). Since you have a low displacement 4 cylinder you're not going to have enough exhaust to spool a large turbo in your power band let alone two, meaning you want a smaller turbo and not a twin turbo setup. Adding 4 turbos would basically just be added weight and a waste of money.

heres an idea. get a fancy paint job and over the top body kit dual exhaust with a flame kit. then put a bunch of stickers on it. Skunk2 AEM ect. fill the inside with gauges and get a wing that looks like it was built with an erector set. then you can drive a car that looks like it can run 10 second 1/4 miles. if you wanna be taken seriously i suggest doing some research and taking paul walker off your profile pic.
