Yah ras, you be getting de ball rollin' and while you be rollin de ball jah you be rollin one a dem fat-tees...Rastafar eye! while we be slavin"

Time for some nice music...

By the rivers of babylon
where we sat down
and there we wept
when we remembered zion
'cause the wicked
carried us away - captivity
required from us a song
how can we King Alpha's of a song
in a strange land?

As far as we can tell it is currently at the right finished size for a turbo motor making some Bewest

ie 96.6mm

Blake or Pat could you throw a couple additional photos up of the front strut tower tie in's were done. I don't follow how they attach to the strut towers.

Those are really the best pics I have the front tower tie ins. What are you having trouble with? They go under the outer tower skin and then welded to the inner. A small plate is then welded in the wheel well to strengthen the attachment point. Hope that helps

I used a 1.75" hole saw right under the fresh air duct and designed the bars to go straight forward through the firewall and into the void between the outer strut tower and the inner, they do have a slight bend in them but I didn't see any other option. It worked out pretty well because I was able to stitch the tube in all along it, I also had to cut a "window" to be able gain access to weld I did a ~4"x4" three sided cut just outside of the strut tower. I'll take a couple of pics next week

What are some thoughts on crank scrapers? I often hear them spoken of on turbobricks but don't think I can recall a single one of you guys talking them up. Should that answer my question right there?

Well thanks for the info guys.

Would I get a better response if mentioned that this is all Anders fault?

I think a simple windage tray is better.

Thank you Robert. Makes sense. I'm not looking for performance gains. Just looking to decrease cavitation and avoid starvation for longevity's sake
