      Brian,
      Your formula precision work is stellar as well, top notch!

      Alot of little updates, mocking everything up but the wiring, then ordering some proper lines to replace all the couplings....

      Things are starting to come together, too bad, it all needs to come apart to drop in the built motor...

      So, is the entire weight of the intake manifold/AWIC supported by the runners/ intake flange? Or are you counting on the turbo to throttle pipe doing some support as well? The welds are beautiful and I'm sure very strong at the moment but aluminum does fatigue out with vibration. Especially with the added weight of the AWIC, it seems like there needs to be some more support for that part of it.

      Silicone a 1/2 an inch from the turbo hot side = bad idea.. heat sheild might not be enough.

      I can address that issue, won't be hard.

      Coming along nicely.

      Is your motor solid mounted? If not are you worried abou the motor rocking to much and hitting the fan shroud?

      May add a small fan to pull air, through that heat exchanger to help. Wont be able to drive it till 12/10/12 as i am waiting to get my liscense back, ambient air temps, and water meth should cool down the water a good bit.




      Second core 13 x 7 x 2 coming to slot in infront of the rad, no fan for core 2 though.

      I dont know where he got his, but check out Bell Intercoolers, they have lots of cores.
