That's a great cell/pump. I looked into the same thing. I just don't have that much room under the hood.

I designed it out of cardboard, including the filler cap, and then cut the pieces out of stainless and formed them, then Corey did the welding... It appears there are still several lines off of it, but like I mentioned, we are waiting for a fitting or two in the am and it'll be completed...

We have a few more things to do, like run the hoses from the boost controller solenoids to the waste gates and I have some interior stuff to do... but for the most part, she is almost finished...

The parts we need for the suspension should be in Thursday, and then we head onto the dyno for some tuning... Corey has the Nitrous controller programmed... and the tach signal stuff tied in... The inductive pickup from Aeromotive never did work for any of the things we tried it on... So, it's going back to Aeromotive or in the trash... Haven't decided yet...

There is a switch panel in the console, and a switch in the trunk...

In the console, is boost controller on/off, nitrous heater on/off, nitrous on/off, nitrous purge, and one other... We also have the line lock switch... and the switch in the trunk is for the Aeromotive fuel pump to go into high bypass... It'll run at full capacity all the time rather than waiting on a signal from the hobbs switch (alternative to the tach signal device) when the car gets into boost... Another victim of the failed inductive tach signal device... Alan, Corey's electrics dude is a frigg'in brainiac with this stuff....

The tach signal for the progressive nitrous controller is hard wired as well...

This is a Robert designed, Corey built fuel cell and the nirtous controllers. We will have C-16 race fuel in the cell to mix with the Nitrous.... Spraying a wet shot into the intake....

We still have one piece to build for it, waiting on a fitting... tomorrow, so it's just sitting in there right now... It isn't bolted down...

There is a stand alone fuel pump in the tank, and the regulator on the outside... It'll hold almost to gallons... Again, the primary intention here is for the standing mile runs, so the big tank and two nitrous tanks ought to serve us well...
Robert looking muy bueno señor! So maybe I have missed it in your build thread, but is there a "Remove before Flight" ribbon somewhere on Brandi? This car isn't a car anymore... It is a damn nice rocket ship!!!

Hey Brother...

Yes, there is a remove before flight tag, and interestingly enough it's on my key chain... I am to remove the keys from the ignition prior to the car becoming airborne.... Don't know how effective it'll be, but there it is...

Are you going to make it to the Fest...

I didn't untill Mikey espalained it to me... It sure is easier on my shift light to have the steering wheel a lil bit closer to me... The spokes used to hit it... until Mikey looked at me like I was a dumbass... which is entirely possible...and told me how to work it.... who knew...
