    Re: Why is there never enough time/ The Ohio mile

    Nice setup ! Love seeing in-progress shots !
    Are you going to be pulling the turbo intake through the radiator ? If so, think 'pre heated'...you might want to rethink the intake source. I'm N/A and pulling my air in through my H/L openings through a ram air system. Good clean air there. That is why my air dam is actually behind the front of the body. I looked at running right off the leading edge of the front bumper but decided the air flow would be disturbed too much for a clean air flow directly into the H/L rams.

      Not pulling through the radiator. Plan to block most of the grill and duct the air to the turbo somehow if there is time.

            Making progress, I think it will be running in time. Set the new engine in a few days ago. Need to finish the cooling system plumbing and re do some wiring. Hope to test fire this week or next.

                  As an update on my junk. Just installed the motor and trans, have to wire and plumb the car, then rewire some things that are being updated or back dated, then retune the car (going back to gas for awile),maybe head to the drag strip for a little testing, possibly beat on it a little on the dyno to see where I am at hp wise at the lower power levels I will be running for the next couple of races. Oh ya also have to rework ome of the ground effects for the smoother pavement.

                      Mike, the first time I ran Maxton, you went 237 rigth behind me - I couldn't figure out what I had done to fire up the crowd........you MADE A GREAT RUN!!!The Geezers can't wait to see you in Ohio!!!! We're off the dyno and in the car - check with Brian for details.

                        Can't wait to see the Evo back in action. Really dig that car.
                        Just hoping my big cube, big turbo turd will be running and hold together a full mile let alone run within 70mph of what that little 4 Popper can.

                          Thanks guys!

                          Joey probably more like 3 days. lol

                          The car has been running since monday, most of the rewiring is done. Need to finish the wiring and reinstall the intercooler, then switch fuels/ get the car tuned , then tested.

                              As ready as I'm gonna be. But I have something to drive down the track and a class to put it in.
