Wow.  That's all I can say.  Wow.

Night before last Nancy and I went to a blues show here in Marquette.  Good music -- a father, son, and nephew from Mississippi, and - ready for this -- a 19-year-old white kid from Cheyenne, Wyoming.  He's the lead guitar.  Freakin' AMAZINGLY GREAT!

19 years old -- what's he going to be when he's been playing the blues for more than the eight years he's got in already?

But put him on lead and fiddlin' around with this lyric -- I'd pay money to see that show.

Okay, back to Sparky's car thread.

I said I am winning the battle, not that it is over ..............yet. And we don't need to bet the IPAs, there will be one for you regardless.
Jon,  Some how I knew some bike guy was going to speak up---but the SIZE of the turbo stuff makes a huge difference---there is a reason why some of these cars are so large--Speed Deamon and others come to mind---when you start trying to make a lot of HP---there are big cooling problems that must be dealt with virtually every system on the car.

Got the HRM issue with the Speed Demon on the bench right now studying it. It is amazing how LITTLE the intercoolers are! The plumbing takes up the bulk of the space. I am using it as a template for my own packaging and i think I am winning the battle!

Hey Trent,

oh, the confidence...... If you think you're winning the battle, I wanna bet you an IPA. When we pulled the pinion in the SOS during Speedweek here, there were a few raised eyebrows when I said , "we have to lift the water tank (220lbs) and hoist the motor to pull the tail-shaft enough to undo the pinion nut....." true.... but you'll have more room than that........

I bet  that young man's name Taylor Scott?  He's local, and very good!

Thanks for the prompt.  I looked up the band's site -- www.gradychampion.com -- and sure enough, Taylor Scott is the lad.  What a talent.  He's worth remembering.

Hey Bill, when we talked the other day I said I'd send you a picture of the way I measure temp. & press. using the same access port boss. The unit at the top of the photo is a 1/8" open tip k-type thermocouple I use for temps less then ~300 degrees F. The lower unit is also 1/8" but a shielded thermocouple good to ~1850 degrees IIRC. The thread on the tee is 1/8" pipe and I install a -4 AN fitting in the side of the tee to get pressure readings from the same port. Kills two birds with one tap.  :-)  Have fun!

Mike thanks for posting.

Had a fairly good day!  Jim Price of Saltiene new called checking up on me.  dropped the intercooler of so Marty can work on the incoming end---we need major surgery for the intake end.  Worked on the turbo mounting brackets and the incoming turbine 90 deg turn manifold where the waste gate and sensors will be mounted.

Well,  slowly and not too surely we are getting there--found a new use for bending mistakes---found two curved tubes in my scrap pile that I have made into wastegate stalks-- that gets them out from under the turbos and into an area above the rear axle.  Finally I think I "heard" the car tell me how to mount them. should be able to do that  in the next couple of days.  Ordered a 4" 90 deg alum. weldable el from Irrigation Supply for the motor end of the intercooler.  Still waiting for the caar to tell me about the pumps.

Sparky, what style intercooler are you using-did I miss it?
