Thx. Scott. looking for some ideas of stuff i can use for injectors, maybe some of you guys can give me some input. I have acctually seen a couple turbo cars that use the blower intake with mechanical injection, But that would be the easy way out. I know it's gonna be hard to be accurate biengs they are gonna be so small.

Ok, I got the Oil pump knocked out. This is based of the plueger Oil pump which is a dual pump, The pump should be a little bigger than what i made it. When i did my chassis i didn't use a big enough radius to allow room for the pump so i had to cheat it a little.  I used RB motion fittings and hardware, For lines i'm using Pro-Tech braided line ( This stuff is so easy to work with and looks so realistic). I painted the Motor plate Matte black. The small fittings near the front of the pan are for the Oil returns on the turbos. I will probably mount the motor permanently now then start adding everything else. i painted the block with some chrome paint i found at home depot, it resembles polished aluminum ( looks better in person) and the pan is tamiiya flat aluminum.

 

The pump has 4 fittings, ( -12 in 1:1), 1 runs to the oil filter, 1 runs from filter back to the pump which goes right into the block, the other 2 run to the oil tank. The line from the pump to the Pan (-16 in 1:1), I have only seen 2 promods run the alcohol or top fuel style pan. I had the other more popular style pan that promods run but it turned into a lost cause. Hope to have some more updates again soon.

 

 

 

Big thx. to Dave (comp1839) He helped me through the oil system layout.

Joe... that engine looks great buddy!! Killer work man. You have me wanting to get more of my engine done on my F/C and get my block painted so I can start assembling it. Keep up the Killer work. I am hoping to get those pics out to you here in the next few days. This week has been a little crazy with starting a new job.

Joe, the engine and oiling system look fantastic mate. Great work! B)  B) 

That Home Depot chrome works a treat too, looks to have just the right sheen to it. Nice find.....gonna have to track down something similar. ;)

Well didn't get close to what i wanted to get done, I wanted to run 8 injectors per side but there wasn't enough room to get it done so i had to settle for 8 total. I have only ever seen a couple outlaw 10.5 turbo cars run only 8 injectors, usually a majority of the high Hp cars run 16 injectors. so here is the main part done, i decided to go with a whole new lower and run square runners which i think look better, tommarrow after work i want to ad the weld decals to the intake and fuel/oil cells. upper is made out of renshape.

Thx. Guys, I think I will work on the front suspension and steering next so I know where I can run my lines. Also going to start making front rotors with hats and start making the brackets and Lamb calipers.

Your intake looks fantastic, Joe.  Well, everything does!  I understand having a furry family member around who takes away from modeling time.  Our new kitten soaks up a lot of build time - either spending time with her, or her getting in the way of what I'm doing and/or causing other distractions... LOL
