Emma has a good eye catching the fuel line location, but if (when) you shred a tire it's gonna find your fuel lines no matter where you put them

Yes, that and the intake were the culprits. We have an intake solution and I have been told the diff WILL be done "shortly".

They are BSS and teflon so even exposed they are almost impossible to compromise...these particular ones are as tough as hard line. These HD lines were chosen since they are going to have 85+ psi in them quite regularly.

We'll give you a noodle to use with your vest...

Yeah, Cyn gets it. You on the other hand - do they make rigs that float ?

This is probably going to be a stupid question but, how much power do you expect once she is all running and on the dyno?

We're in the preliminary validation phase, still got a few bugs to work out

I am always cautiously optimistic in doing this. It really comes down to how high we decide to run the boost. Also, this is first and foremost a 100% streetable car, so I ruled out things like a .700"+ cam and 88mm+ turbos which we already have dyno runs over 2,000 hp so it will definitely be lower than that. The engine can take whatever we decide to throw at it. I know that is not a direct answer, but it will be well above 1,000 hp.

It is a high end DTS Powermark Dyno and on a few different builds (Big Twin Turbo Engines) we hit the maximum capacity of the unit at just over 2,200 hp.

I can see now why the rear diff could be the "unicorn" based on that hp estimate. This car will be amazing!

Yes, we are going to name the SST differential "Eleanor". It will be a race to get it finished. In a few more weeks it becomes the critical path in the build schedule.

OK. Here is the latest... Not super glamorous, but pretty slick engineering.
You know many have talked (the drag racers) about replacing the heavy front bumper assembly with something lightweight. Well...

First Pic - The black piece on top is the factory bumper. The middle piece is made out of aluminum and that is replacing the bumper. The bottom piece is the portion of the Air-To-Water Intercooler that has access to cold outside air.

But....

Second Pic - That middle piece is not just a flat piece of aluminum - it IS the water reservoir for the A2W intercooler system !!! The outside bumper shell mounts right to it/through it and when the SST is all back together you will never see it. Plus all of the thermal efficiencies are really high utilizing this method, so we killed two birds with one stone. Also note the top of the engine. Those are the twin Blow Off Valves that are mounted symmetrically.

Third Pic - This shows the great fabrication work these guys have done. The top right piece is the water reservoir, the bottom right piece is the Water portion of the Air To Water intercooler. There are pieces in the middle for removing bubbles from the system and these go to a high mounted surge tank. On the left is the massive radiator. Also note that what would normally be radiator hoses is all stainless hard line.

Fourth Pic - This is the surge tank that completes the Air To Water Intercooler system.

Fifth Pic - To keep things symmetrical a radiator overflow tank was fabbed up to match the surge tank. Again, note the stainless hard line used in place of rubber radiator hoses. There are still little silicone connector joints for expansion/contraction and vibration, but they are very small.

Anyway, this probably is not very exciting to you, but I get really pumped over cool stuff like this. It looks 100% stock, but it is functionally superior.


That is AAWWWEEESSSSOOOMMEEE!!

what size are those Turbo's??

Thank You. The turbos (as well as the engine) in the engine bay pics were for fabrication purposes only. I think we will end up using either 72's or 76's in the final configuration. The dyno will tell us which ones have the best area under the curve along with the driving characteristics we want the SST to have.

I've been thinking about Emma's cool carpet.
... Do you think they can make a fuel cell cover that looks like a can?
