No matter what happens, this will be the ultimate in personal transportation.
With slightly larger twin power turbos and more free flowing heads compared to the old regular mini turbos with restrictive heads used on the n54, the f80 won't need any more than 1 bar boost (14.5psi) to get 450hp. Maybe you meant 2 bar as in total pressure, 1bar atmosphere and 1bar boost.
