Some of them include: custom 9 to 1 compression ratio forged pistons, connecting rod bearings, main bearings, heavy duty clutch an pressure plate, twin water cooled, dual-ball bearing tubos, custom made stainless steel turbo downpipes and exhaust system. The list continues with colder heat range spark plugs, high flow turbo air inlet plumbing, high flow turbo air discharge plumbing, spearco water to air intercooler, intercooler water pump and all necessary lines and fittings. The engineers did not stop here and also provided optimized fuel and spark calibration, professional installation and tuning, 100 Octane 1000 horsepower upgrade including Carrillo billet steel connecting rods, associated machine work and two stage boost controller. In the end, the specialists have obtained an incredible supercar which represents their passion for the auto industry.

Jason Heffner is in the business of building fast cars. We`re talking about quadruple digit horsepower, spinning the tires at 100 mph and pulling-away-from-a-Bugatti-Veyron fast cars. You might remember watching a Heffner-powered twin-turbo Ford GT that could hit 222 mph in the standing mile. His latest project is this twin-turbo Lamborghini that`s putting down 930 horsepower and 762 lb-ft torque at the wheels. This particular owner also wanted to cut some weight, and added a carbon fiber deck lid and rear diffuser, race seats, and lightweight wheels.
