Jack, I am sure there are---on one of the Boards that Tim found some one mentioned the wrench clearance issues---I think that I will use my old Craftsman torque wrench with a ---I think they are called crows feet ---open end wrench with a socket drive and work out the math to compensate for the added length of the lever---Brodix wants a hard washer and 55'#

The hemis I have been around in the alcohol cars have a similar issue with some of the studs and that's exactly what the do is use a crows foot on their torque wrenchs.

It may be worthwhile putting a S bend in an extension and even tack it to to your crows foot or weld it to a ringspanner  with the tension wrench axis on the bolt axis.

No loosing the crows foot in the valley, getting the maths wrong, crowsfoot opening up or binding on the block etc.

Cheers

Paper Dolls---we are back to paper dolls, on the eng side of the intercooler--Marty did not like the old design from a construction stand point. I came up with a new design and I made it out of wood and a piece of 5" irrigation pipe this morning--I will show it to him tonight--and WE can get going on this thing.

holes for 2 Godspeed 50 mm bovs--these two near the turbo inlets and another closer to the hat inlet, after the intercooler.

What a wild day---I had it all worked out in my noodle---then Marty calls at 6:10 am and says today would be a good day to get going on the intercooler--he wants patterns--so he comes by and drops off a 24" old style paper cutter

so I get after it and cut a bunch of cardboard patterns and then transfer them to 3/8" plywood.  Frankie shows up and he gets to cutting them out while I make some new STUFF. 
Dave shows up at 11:00 and we are all busy for about an hour---then we have patterns for Marty

Marty shows up with the stuff cut out around 6:00 and we have 2 great hours fitting and tacking.

I have my day full tomorrow --with phone parts chasing-- making and fitting the rest of the parts that are missing and getting the
3rd BOV fitted under the tube going to the carb hat. 

Thanks for a great day guys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tm  what you see is the 5" inlet going to the carb hat

This is one Rube Goldberg looking intercooler the 3 BOV will be mounted below that 5" piece of irrigation pipe that is the intercooler outlet pipe.  I just hope it works 1/2 as good as it is hookey looking.

I have tried to keep the surface areas of the inlets and outlets balanced.  The  area of the 2 turbo outlets is 19.25 sq. in.; the 5" pipe is 19.6. The inlet out of the intercooler into the pipe is 30+ sq. in.  I HOPE that compensates SOME for a really ugly transision.
