Cool picture but I call it fake. The plumbing doesn't make much sense.

Intercooler in the cabin???

Twin turbos driven by exhaust of only one side of a V8???

Likely the exhaust crosses over behind and under the engine.

It appears to be a drag car or, more likely, some form of Bonneville or Dry Lakes car. Plenty of room in the firewall area for a water to air aftercooler. I wonder about getting the thing to fuel well though. Appears to only have a single row of injectors per bank unless there are showerheads in the intake plumbing.

Just looking at stuff like that makes you smile. Excellent argument for the "more is better" crowd. I don't think he bought the plumbing at AutoBarn.

 

Pretty impressive 1/8 mile times.

Oh well, it's not the first , or last, time that I'm proven wrong.

"Pretty stout" is good description.

 

Those turbos remind me of this from my home university. Kind of same technology but different application... :-)

The most impressive aspect of that drive method was the noise it produced :grin: not so much the speed or acceleration.
