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

2778 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!

...And these times were when using minimal power and revs, so it wouldn't have made any difference if the engine was "capable" of 100, 500, or 1000HP. Seems that any clutch problems (at least with the e-gear) have been restricted to engagement/slipping issues at low torque demand, and probably mainly due to the relatively unnecessarily high gear ratios in first.
Slipping clutches on a hill vs a power adder like a blower are to different things. Clutches typically are only capable of handling so much hp. As you move up to a stronger clutch, you have less "forgiveness" for day to day driving. All the parts will be fine...until you can get the power to the ground. :wave:
