Manny, I'll let you know how my friend's 450 hp 2.4 CIH runs then....
Well, with 450 hp you just stick your head out the window and the drool dries right up....gtzero said:I can't seem to stop drooling!
It will have an air-to-air intercooler. It is fairly large in surface area, so I will rely on this for all charge cooling. I will use a water sprayer for the intercooler only for warmer weather, and probably boost-dependant. That is, it will only activate at higher levels of boost.kmon said:Please keep us updated on this bob, I am building a very similar engine. I'm a bit worried about the rear end, so im sticking with small tires for now hoping to lose traction before stuff breaks (just a matter of time i know). A few questions about the cih turbo engine, a bit ot but he since he brought it up Are you going to run an water-air intercooler or water injection? Does the intercooler being built in switerland make it go faster If your going with an air-air intercooler I'd look into an intercooler cooler. They spray nos or co2 across the face of the intercooler and really increase the efficenty (kindof like a nos shot, have a magic gofast button mounted in the cabin, 'cheap' way to get an extra 60-100hp). What boost levels are you shooting for? Where did you get your throttle body? And can i get a copy of your fuel and ignition curves when you've got it mapped? Lots of question I know, but I'd appreciate your comments on the above. Also, make sure to take as many pics as you reasonable can. I really would like to see the designs of the headers and intake manifolds. Good luck to you with it.

Yes, I'm quite familiar with it. It's also VERY expensive, over $500. I'll make my own system. It won't have 100 psi, only 60 or so, but it'll be adequate.gtzero said:Hey Bob,
Are you familiar with the AQUAMIST system that is used in Rally cars? I just realized how stupid that question was.
Not needed for a naturally aspirated engine below 9000 rpms..... really the stock pump is quite adequate I've found.jeff denton said:That is a wicked engine you're building.
I want to know more about the "diesel oil pump with longer gears". Thanks!
