Confound Turbocharging

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

We're not entirely sure what is going on here. What appears to have been a Nissan Maxima has been turbocharged with not one, but two turbochargers. While this may not seem all that unusual these two turbos have been installed in place of the passenger seat. What looks like a intercooler above the turbos may in fact be an intake, but the plumbing has evidently gone less Mitsubishi 3000GT and more Three Stooges on its way back into the engine compartment. This obvious fan of forced induction wins this week's ingenuity and fabrication award. Bonus points for removing a section of the passenger side floor to make room for plumbing and enhance in cabin turbo cooling.
