A few Q's about the Gallardo's...

2776 Views 8 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  lager99
I'm looking into a Gallardo and have a few questions:

1. Engine Management - What is used? Can it be tuned?

2. Turbo Systems - Anyone have a turbo system or SC power adder? Any good tuners that members would recommend? I see a kit on Hennessey's website for the Gallardo for 700HP.

3. How much HP can the Clutch, E-Gear, and Tranny hold??? Can it hold over 700HP?

4. Any HIGH HP Lambo's out there??

5. What about Fuel System, Injectors, etc?? What is Max HP supported by current fuel system configuration? Injector size? Pump's, Lines, Pressure regulator??

6. Is there a good website to research the V10 in the Gallardo?

My goal is to build a high HP street Lambo. I think the V10 platform would be great to turbo charge.

Thanks for any feedback!

I have read a bit about Hennessey. :(

I'd just buy the kit and have it installed by my mechanic. I'm just curious about the engine management/power holding capabilities of the clutch/tranny etc. Looks like it uses the AUDI FSI system. Audi is developing a biturbo version to put out 610bhp. Maybe herin lies some of my answers.
I beleive that the E-gear has the same tranny as the 6spd but with a robotized clutch mechanism...not an auto with a torque converter!!

How long does the stock clutch last and what is the HP holding power?? Does anyone know where I can get this information?

Also, What about information on maintaining this new Audi V10??? Any websites with specs, etc?

Does anyone know the name of the shop in Costa Mesa, CA that turbo charges lambos? I cannot find their number/name?
