The turbocharger system being permanently installed...





Ben working on wiring in the engine bay...



The anti-froth/oil-return collectors going on...

(the oil collects in these chambers, and is then pulled to the scavenger pump, then returned to the oil pan)









The intake system going together...











The hot-side charge piping in place...



As you can see, nothing routes into the wheel wells, it's all central to the engine bay...

F1 and Indy cars are automatics.

IDK about indy cars but F1's are not automatic. From wikipedia-

Formula One cars use semi-automatic sequential gearboxes, with regulations stating a maximum of seven forward gears and one reverse gear, using rear wheel drive.[7] The gearbox is constructed of carbon fibre or titanium, and is bolted onto the back of the engine.[8] Full automatic gearboxes, and systems such as launch control and traction control, are illegal, to keep driver skill important in controlling the car

If it doesn't have a clutch pedal it is an automatic by my dictionary.

Indycars have clutch pedals and sequential gearboxes.

what does it matter if its a manual or automatic? with that amount of power for someone that does not race top fuel dragsters every weekend, an automatic is the best choice to reduce driver error when shifting gears.

Apologies, guys, it's been beyond hectic lately, I haven't had time to get on the forums at all.

Quick and to-the-point update;

The components are back from powder coating;

The air-diversion panel...



Valve covers...



The manifolds black heat treated...



And the engine bay almost wrapped up...



And the video I myself have been itching for;

Start-up video...

Eric Berry is my new favorite football player! And as far as custom Camaros go, NS is my new favorite!!!

Y'all do some amazing work and I can see myself in the future wanting to take my Camaro to NS to get some crazy work done!

Thanks for the kind words, guys.

She is on the rollers!





NZ1200 saw her first rain today moving from the shop to the dyno...



I think it's fair to say it was unavoidable, haha...

Wow!!! Every pic is sheer amazement! I really cannot wait to see what you all will do for the exterior. I think the carbon fiber pieces will be a nice touch but for what's under the hood, I'm kinda expecting the same craftsmanship on the exterior!
