Yeah. And then multiply it by the static compression ratio, add some fuel and light it on fire ! BOOM !

Congrats!! Its a girl! Now get out of her way So you make 1450 at 28 psi, is that race gas and pump gas mixed since you have "Octane On Demand" or is that only race?

The system used on the dyno is the same that is in the car. You program the computer to control the ratio of pump gas to race gas. e.g. Do you want your Captain Morgan all coke or all Captain Morgan or somewhere in between ?

Wow. I don't think I've ever said "wow" so many times in one thread. It looks great in there... like it was made for it!

Did they need a shoe horn to get it in there?

I see a hood sitting on the roof of the car. Is that like losing your glasses when they're on your face?

You guys are too funny...

It is a tight fit, but setup for lots of airflow around the turbos.
The front bumper is the reservoir for the A2W intercooler. It's "radiator" is below the bumper. The other piece is the A/C cooler. Behind that is a monster 4" core Ron Davis radiator, and then of course the exchanger portion of the A2W piece you saw pop off on one of the dyno pulls.

When the car is finished you need to make a new thread in the 'General Discussion' area...

First time I washed my car in 2 years!

...and look what I found underneath the dust

Gee... you'd think this motor makes some heat with all those radiators and intercoolers. Wonder why?

Looks good to me. Certainly AZ will be a great testing ground - it won't get much hotter than that anywhere. The real test will be data logging the runs. If the car will idle with the A/C on in AZ at the track for 15 minutes, then make a pass and idle for 15 more with the A/C on - you are safe. Good thing is Ron Davis is in the area - maybe he will be there

But it looks like you ran out of 'tads' on this one.



I always hated Tad. He's such a leach......
Tad's much better than Todd!

And we're using this hood with functional heat extractors that go directly above the headers and turbos.

That is the best aftermarket hood I've seen, and it's perfect for your use.
