   Hi Gary

   I believe you can run X0 blown gas altered [pg 91 168.2 mph] and other non vintage classes with 1948 and later bodies but turbos and efi are not allowed,[as I read the rule book [pg 16-17]otherwise your going heads up against modern engines like small block chevs. kugel and LeFevers 300.787.

As I read it, turbos and EFI are NOT allowed in Vintage (pre1948 bodies) but OK everywhere else...............GH and I have talked about this many times.....................JD

I don't know anything about EFI but turbos better be allowed in XO/BGAlt. I have held that record for years using two Corvair turbos. It's about time somebody did it in.

John, I do agree with you about the sound. Mine sounded better with the roots blower and mechanical injector. But I sure like the way it performs with the turbos and EFI. And I like the datalogging that you get with the EFI. I already have the turbo and the intake built for the EFI on the GMC engine.

We got a few things accomplished today.  We installed the blower and intake.



We finished bracing the inter-cooler down.



We also had to cut one of our blower tubes and add it to another to lengthen the tube so we can connect it on the engine side of the cowl.  This was one of our major problems at Bonneville, we kept blowing it apart and losing boost thus shutting it down.  I had a picture of it but I somehow deleted it. evil  Anyway we have only a few things to do to finish up, I will keep this updated until we run. cheers

bviller,
I was part owner of the BMW factory 320 IMSA turbo car for some time and when we went to sell it the buyer required that we run it on the dyno. We set it up and as I remember we did run the boost as high as 80 inches and we had somewhat of the same problem you had with the connector hoses blowing off and also splitting. To fix this we would use 3 clamps, one on each side of the tube bead and then one in the middle to keep the hose from bulging. We also used some .040 lock wire and lock wired all of them together! this stopped them from blowing apart. And it allowed us to really blow it up! A piston/rod assembly, a sleeve and some head repair got it up to around 650 hp. Not bad for 121 inches, mechanical fuel injection (Kugalfisher) and gas in 1987.

Sparky are you go to El Mirage this weekend? I would like to meet you, I had a chance at WOS when you and Sumner were working on the car and he borrowed my cordless drill, but I did not want to bother you.
