    This was sent to me today. Do you think the nitrous and turbo enhanced 3.75 will cut within the 1/3 rule?

    I have pondered the idea for a small turbo on a mower before, but I don't have time to even do anything to my cars. Please tell me the turbo is for your mustang.

    Thats NOT a small turbo!

    I don't know what it's intended for, but high RPM and large displacement are givens.

    A supply of NOS to the operator, and who cares about the 1/3 rule! :D

    I think you just re-invented the Hover mower!

    Jerry, I was taking off whether it rained or not. I have been busting my solo butt since April and I'm taking some time off. I have 30 lawns to keep leaves cleaned off of on a every two week schedule. I have Tuesday and Thursday off the week after next if anybody wants to catch lunch!
