Actually No
 
I spoke with Bob Blouch, the guy who did that 318.  He's quoting me on a dual turbo setup for it.
 
I can put up to 15 PSI in a stock motor get tripple the HP.  That's like 700 HP.  But I am opting for the 400 HP range with 7 PSI, give or take.
 
He agreed it would be pretty tight in there for twin turbos.
 
I'll give a look at it, and get an estimate for a fabricator to make me the brackets and pipes.  But it's going to be expensive.  Real Expensive.
 
I may have to go with the blower just because of room and practically.  7 to 8 PSI is plenty.  And I won't pop any head bolts.
 
25 PSI would definitely send the heads over to Bangor.

Bangor, Maine.....

My GLH makes 146 hp with just 5lbs of boost

The 1985 and 1986 Omni GLHs were available with either the 110-bhp
high-output engine or a 146-bhp turbo 2.2-liter engine, which created a
power rocket waiting to fly off the road. Alloy wheels, unique tape
decor and ground effects rounded out the package. The turbocharged
engine had torque in abundance, with 170 lb-ft peaking at a low 3,600
rpm; when one considers that the light Omni was fairly quick with the
96 horsepower 2.2, the turbocharged version’s power ratings become more
impressive.

My K car "turd on a pedestal" comment got edited so I DEMAND Stan's does too!

My GLH got high 20's gas mileage and smoked off Trans-Ams and Mustangs....great little cars. Just be prepared to buy sensors for the motor...when they sit they like to fail....

Low production #'s dictate you should buy this car!

I had the first year for the 2.2 turbo-a 1984 Chrysler Laser XE-it ran like a raped ape when all the electronics worked properly-It was an electric nightmare-replaced all the sensors atleast once-the fuel pressure reg 5 times-just got tired of working under the hood and not getting the performce I wanted-yes if you rev it to 1800 at stop lights the mustange next to you gets surprised,but, if the coolant temp sensor craps out then you get beat. I also forgot to about the wire harness that if you touched it would just fall apart-sold the car for a $700 buck profit and never bought another one..
   As for the video that was cool, I liked the end.....and it still pulled 1211 HP
