Here's the site for a liner from Sweden with details of their wind tunnel experience at Volvo. Jokes about bricks and aerodynamics aside, there's interesting stuff here.

Best of luck with the adventure.

funny, the boss seriously considered something crazier like an Allison V1710 or one of those soviet tank engines...  or maybe a Merlin...


in order to feed 500+ cubes a "low boost diet" and keep the turbos in their efficiency range, we need gigantic turbos.  Harry Hruska at Precision Turbo made them especially for our application...  we'll come nowhere near the max airflow of these things (this year) but we'll probably do a more typical BB Chevy in two years and take better advantage of the 2800+ hp they should be able to flow...


Now the trick is figuring out how to fit these in the 'liner without doubling the frontal area?  PorkPie and others, keep an eye on this post because we may need more aero help!!


thanks again guys,

Scott,
With all the additional "volume" you are going to create by lengthening the car you should be able to move the water tank behind the rear wheels and then hang the turbos in that area. You need to hire Jeff Heywood to do the headers and new tank, he did them for Junior and he is one of the best fab guys around. His headers are true works of art  and he has done a number of racing turbo header setups, several for Indy cars and has lots of experience getting every thing tucked in.

Sparky,
Go to the second page of "General Chat" and look at the post from Tom Slick "Another new streamliner". This is the Spectra car.
