You're thread is getting locked most likely. You're English is off point, and that's coming from a Frenchman.

Damn, ive seen that car before but havent seen it in awhile and now looking at it, the BOV must be loud as hell. The bov is right behind you inside the car, at least in the one in the link that was posted.

How would this work i thought you cant tune 2 diffrent engines to the exact same tune. For that to work if it is awd both engines would have to have the exact same tune or it would rip its self apart like a 4wd truck with 2 diffrent size tires from the front to the back. Right? Becuase if one made just a little more power than the other you would push the front tires or pull the back and strain all steeing, suspension, and the weaker engine parts. Does all of this sound right please correct me if im wrong.

Your wrong. It would only tear itself apart if the two sets of tires were linked. In this car they aren't. Its a FWD with hacked together FWD parts in the rear to make 2 completely seperate drivetrains. Besides, guys tune 6 Hemis at one time turning 1 set of wheels all the time. It's called a tractor pull.
The Talon was for sale last time I heard. The only real issue with the car is the rear engine overheating. They guy who built it says it would overheat all the time. Can't imagine why that might happen.

Its not a 12 second car...I understand all the saftey regs at the track b/c theres no rool cage...But on the last run he shoulda just stayed in it and seen what happened.

there are alot of rear engine cars from the factory that don't overheat, so it isn't just a problem with having a motor in the back, just a specific cooling issue with his setup, that could be fixed fairly easy, would need to have a high volume electric water pump, run the piping to the front of the car, and run a 4 core radiator, that is how most of the 2 motor setups i have seen do it.

Obviously there are alot of rear engine setups from the factory.....they have already thought out cooling issues. I'm saying, your putting a modded 4g63 which naturally runs hot in the back of an enclosed car. Obviously one is going to need a better and more planned out cooling system than the system on the front.

100MPH in the 1/8th is quick, but not 800WHP quick. More like 450WHP
