Rear turbos aren't new.

They turbo it, chip it, and do the standard performance remapping.

That's it.

There is no hybrid even though they named it "Green Interactive Hybrid System". No batteries, no motors, no hydraulics, no compressed air, no flywheel... nothing hybrid.

My understanding of "CARB #s" is that having one doesn't automatically make it street legal. It just means the CARB has identified it.

They will be the first tuners in the world to double fe by merely throwing a turbo on.

Well why not. It seems there are no bad repercussions from lying your *** off these days.
