I think it's funny how pretty much everything non-drivetrain is stock, even the suspension and brakes (except RTAB's).

I can't imagine what it'd feel like to break traction in 5th gear (then blow the tranny lol).
"Driving is like a narcotic, an addiction that can take over lives. It ruins people, breaks families apart, and even kills. Itís habit that needs to be fueled. Time, money, rationality, sweat, knuckle skin, and anyone who disapproves are of little importance to a driver, and are often overlooked. Hi, Iím Nelson, and Iím a drivaholic."

not very drivable...

but eager to see the specs. I'm sure that if its dialed down to around 5-600 mark it will be very reliable.

Why would it not be driveable? That's one of the best things about huge turbo's, you really have to stomp on it to spool em up and it can be a decent daily driver. It'll just have the behavior of a 500hp car even when driven lightly, then you can stomp on it and be doing 350km/h in no time
