He isn't the only one that looks. I peek in everytime you post, but your project is above my pay grade level and too much for me to fathom sometimes. LOL. Keep up the good work.

Just another quick mock up of the turbo system for the Pontiac Heaven Show.





The intercoolers are laying down in this mock up. Ultimately I may position them vertically to make sure the whole core is full of coolant (water). If they lay horizontal, as in the mock up, they may only fill up to the level of the centered inlet and outlet fittings??? I want to make sure the core is fully utilized. If I need to lay them flat I could stagger the inlet fittings too. Install the inlet low at the entrance and the exit high.

The postponed Pontiac Heaven show was held Saturday. Because the both drag strips are shut down right now The owner of the event, Steve Barcak, had to scramble just to get a show on. But it turned out to be really nice show. I displayed the engine, mocked up, the way I showed it in the previous posting. And I was awarded (voted on by the show participants) "The Pontiac Heaven Best Engine" award.



BUT!!! The standing joke was---I won the Best Engine award and my car was the only vehicle at the show that had and engine that did not run!! HA!!! Gotta admit it was funny.
