That looks a lot more compact than the Davis Craig ones, nice purchase.

Wow, they look good, most of the ones I see now are all rusted. What bushes are you going to use as I may be able to help   
All the best Clive

Making our own clive

They were all rusted up etc but had them blasted and painted. Probably going to change them over time to new ones but they shall work just fine for now

The term measure twice cut once just didn't apply today...

Trying to get the rad and cell panel up high enough whilst trying to keep the standard bonnet catch.

It's all fairly floppy due tothe bits I have cut out to get the rad panel where I want it to sit on the cross piece but once iv finally trimmed it all and welded it together it will be strong and sturdy.

Need to fold the bottom of the panel to help strengthen it up and stops it poking down so much.

Just literally thought of where I can mount my oil cooler now too

Looks far too complicated to me, you could tell me that’s off a space x rocket and I’d believe you

This is only 2 or the 3 fuel rails I'm going to use.

Got another coming tomorrow I think, going to require some cutting and welding and drilling and measuring though

As you are going to stick a lot of fuel into it how much power are you looking to find,
I'm only running 1680's and 850's to give me 520bhp and still have duty cycle left.
All the best Clive

I'm going to be running methanol so I have to inject 1.5 times more fuel at least to make up for the calorific deficit difference between petrol and methanol.

I'm going to have scope for 8 x 2200 cc Injectors. Prety much over kill BUT I'd rather not run out of fuel.

Only want to max out this current turbo, probably around 600hp but have enough fuel to build another engine and shoot for 4 digit hp

Tick off my small goals but build it for the ultimate goal of 8.50s

Just a quick calculation and I will need 4000cc worth of Injector on methanol to achieve same as your hp Clive.

Thats very simple calculation though so don't take it as me talking about it as if I actually know
