Manifold is on the car for good!!!  We had to re-adjust the length of the fuel lines for the new set up.



Fuel lines attached.



Me cutting some four inch tubing for the sides of the air intake.



These will be the sides of the air intake.



One side tacked on, and the rest will be done tomorrow.

Worked on the air intake a little today.  I could only spend a couple hours on the car today, but this is what was finished while I was there.  The rest should be done later tonight.

My internet is out again!  I have pictures but cannot find the camera cable to input them.  Anyway, all of the blower intake and all of the tubing has been sent out to get ceramitized should be finished friday.  A little to do on the trans cover, then need to mount our compressed air tank, air fuel gage, some wire hook up and push bar on the truck.  After that we can fire it up!  I'll try to update when I get a chance.

I thought I had more pictures, but here are three.  Here is a picture of the finished air intake minus the coatings.





This is our version of Frankenstein.  We tried our best and finished with this.



Now that the cover is done we can put the inner-cooler back in and start working on other fabrications.  Things to do still:  1) Emergency shut off switch, 2) Compressed air mount, 3) Air fuel ratio gage, 4) misc. wiring, 5) some fiberglass work, 6) paint Frankenstein, 7) push bar for truck.

Thanks Scott.  Today we got the trans cover back in after some paint, inner-cooler is in, wiring is sorted out(mostly), emergency switch is finished and some work done on the belts and seat.  We're getting there slowly.

Things are coming together quickly.  The push bar has been re-done to fit our new set up.



Some photos of the new coatings on the blower tubing and intake.







Fixed the hood to fit the blower tube coming out of the window.



And paint.





My helmet camera for my dirt riding fits perfectly here.

It looks great, can't wait to see it on the salt.

I'm trying to figure the hood out.  I can see the new bump at the back to clear the air supply from the intercooler.  The other bulge above it I assume is for clearance also.  Is it open there in the back to let air out of the engine compartment or is is closed??

How about a picture with the hood on the car.

c ya,

With our old set up we had a large inner-cooler box on top of our injectors.  We had to put blow off valves on top of that box, so the large scoop on the top of the hood was to cover up those valves.  The opening in the back was just never covered.  Someday we may build another hood.

We thought we were going to start the car today, but got a little behind putting together other things.  Today we got all the wiring completed, the compressed air bottle mounted, and the roll cage padding on.  The car is all gassed up and ready to fire.   My dad is making a trip to sac town to pick up some new Goodyear 2222's, when he gets back we will light the engine.  Here are a few pictures.

The completed push bar.





The hood of the car.



The car still on jacks.  The car will be off tomorrow.

Here is a video of the cars second start.  The first start we had a small oil leak and fuel leak, needed a little tightening.  The engine isn't at the tune it needs to be at, but I thought you might like the video anyway.  I'm in the car starting and checking controls mom and dad (Linda and John) are checking for more leaks.  We have a small water leak at the head (fix tomorrow) and a water leak in the tank (fix tomorrow).  Enjoy.  Click on picture to activate video.

Good job! Well done! Got to admit I really like the family participation aspect too.

Good luck on the salt.
