We will need Graeme to give us details about it, it would have to have some lag LOL (an understatement)

Oil return would also be interesting. :lol:

This is on a b/b so lag is not an issue...

I meant Big Block...But it looks like a 351 to me...

I guess thats what they thought they had to do to put a turbo on an engine bay that was cramped...
Not sure how the turbine would go being so far away from the engine though. How much exhaust energy would have been lost in the way of heat and friction after travelling all the way down the pipe, not to mention if it had a cat in the way. Plus then the forced air itself has to travel a mile... maybe they had an intercooler somewhere in there too like hanging out the window :?

a guy that work next to the shop that car is in, is on an other forum i use.
he posted this also. when speaking to the owner it seems he did it because alot of people said it will never work.

the length of the pipe from the turbo is not that much longer than the one fited to an XR6T (about 3.2m) so it shouldn't be that much of an issue

Yeah I reckon, I too was thinking maybe they'd be a supercharger and a turbo. So the boots been cut out with a turbo hanging underneath, and it gets air from under the car?

What happens if they drive through a puddle? :?

I personally think its an awesome idea, except cutting holes in boots doesn't appeal to me.

the pod filter is bolted onto the front of the turbo, and if you look at the pic of the setup in the boot, it's actually in the boot, so water isnt an issue (well.... it is if you go deep enough, but if it gets *that* deep, i think the engine getting a gutfull of water is the least of your problems)
