Our new intake system needs to go through the window.




Our new intercooler.  16x18x12 trying to cool the air down to ambient temps.





Rust that has been building for 17 years.




Rust removal by me!

Looks to me like a job for one of those highly advertised rust paints!

I notice that you have a fitness program going on over in the corner. That going to help with the thrash to get ready?

Are those two centrifugal blowers or compressors off of turbos adapted to belt drive??

Mind tell us more about the intercooler construction also.

Too bad I didn't get to see your car also on my trip through Calif.  cry .

The motor that is in it is a 528 KB hemi.  Record at El Mirage since '90, and a soft record in Bville in '03.  The motor that is going in will be 496 and we will start building it later this week or early next.  The blowers are procharger, and we are trying to get a single one instead of running two, we are waiting for a price.  The intercooler was made by Bell, and my dad designed and welded most of the outer core himself.  The final welding will be done by someone else.  We are still waiting on a dry sump tank and just received the new belts on monday.  Still lots to do.

The new blower was ordered today and should ship in two weeks.  We are supposed to get 35 psi out of it.  We were getting about 26 out of two of these.

To convey the concept, use the word.......inexpensive.
Then you need a SMILEY FACE with a tongue in cheek.
Anything but cheap.

Your right there are a few things in these pictures that are cheap, the rusted out tape measure, the old screw driver and dykes and the pepsi can.
