Yep and perhaps stronger internals. It probably is a lighter car as well.

There are at least a dozen N54 cars making over 455HP on stock internals and stock turbos. All it takes is a catless turbo-back exhaust, intercooler, ecu remap, intake, and 93 octane gas or better.

Surprisingly, I do like it. The wheels at first glance look horrific but seem to grow on you after looking at them for a while. While not my personal taste , I can appreciate the design detailing of the wheels. Hey it's a SHOW car , something has to be cutting edge and perhaps controversial to get some attention/buzz. I do like the body kit more than their other blue wide body aberration . Now with some normal headlights and some big BBS's...

I don't know about those wheels. Not feeling it. It would've been nicer with the cf roof. The turbo is sick. What's the specs on the engine?
