Car is running well enough to push the limits.
Dropping from the 2.5" back down to the ridiculous 2.2" (not the insane 2.0" just yet).
Notice I added my extra idler off the front cylinder head again. I run this for the 2.2" and the 2.0" for much greater belt wrap. Gives me far more consistent and strong accelleration when it'* installed.
Imagine the belt wrap WITHOUT that extra idler, especially with the 2.0" pulley:
Here'* where the tension is with it installed and the 2.2" pulley:
It sits one tic to the left with the 2.0" installed.
Routing of the intercooler inlet (front line across the SC) is a little different now. Much better. Had to remove the front valve cover to get the 45 degree fitting in though:
And I went blue with the IC water this time. Running a mix of distilled water, about 20% 'mixes with any' antifreeze for safety and pump lubrication, water wetter, and about 30 drops of blue food coloring.
When something leaks, I'll know which it is.
Road testing can't happen now. Gotta move the Zilla out for lilpooky'* new car to move in.
