The inlets to the turbos are currently connected to each other with that short piece of tubing. I'm interested in seeing how you route the inlet air to that tube. Are you going to try to match up an inlet tube with the existing duct on the top/front of the rear cover? That will be a cool setup when you're finished! 

Mike 

You guessed. Actually I spent part of the night thinking about how I am going to do that.

Some real good imagineering going on here. 

Looked that up Lloyd. I am flattered that you'd call my foundering around by that name.

Still playing with clearances. Had to remove some ductwork off the top of the body. Reminds me of the hood on Eric McLeod's Duesenberg.

Yes. As I've found with the Willys, if you want to make a model infinitely more complicated, add a turbo. Or in your case, two. Nice work.

With all this handling someone broke the body. I had to "weld' some reinforcements inside. that is awfully brittle plastic.

Cutting a pattern to cover the hole in the interior's rear bulkhead.

 

Shaping the inlet elbow to fit between the two turbos.

Added the other pop-off pipe. Had to install it inboard as the turbo is almost against the bulkhead.

"someone" does that stuff on my workbench also. I should probably set up a secrity camera to see if I can catch the culprit.

Continued plugging holes in the bulkhead.

There is room above the engine for an inlet pipe/box. However there isn't any on the outside, so like the pop-off pipe the inlet pipe will have to be on the engine side of the turbos.

It was agreed, after consultation with someone who actually knows what he's talking about that a plain throttle body in the inlet pipe and direct FI would work.Started fabricating a throttle body.

Marked up the cylinder head to machine it for fuel injectors. It could be the first FI flathead.

Then it was mounted on the milling machine for machining. :P

The actual drilling took place on the lathe.

I continue to be amazed by your fabrication work. Well done. If anything gets damaged I have a good supply of Packard engines. I'm glad to contribute to the cause.

I am relieved that you are not offended by what I'm doing to it. -_-

Completed the throttle body and fuel rail.

Realigned the coolant lines to clear the tub, the fuel cell and to come up in the right location.

The post that held the wing will make a fine fuel pump.

Went to do a bit of painting outside. set up on the barbecue grill as per usual. It was too windy. So i started up the old'uns and backed them out of the garage to paint outside but out of the wind.

I thought the piece I added to close the hole in the bulkhead could become a hatch to the front of the engine. Added "heat shield" to the right side of the engine compartment.

Used the oil pump and tank from the Nascar car .

IMG_7200.JPG.80dce95282a1c3e444c0f588e98582c0.JPG

Added a bit of detail to the head. The throttle body is mocked up on the inlet pipe.

Had to open up above the nostrils to clear the rad pipes.

I only have one headlight cover. I'll attempt to make one but if I don't succeed, it'll go without covers.

I think that turbo assembly should be about half the size it is. However it was sold as 1/24, same as the engine.

We are still fighting clearance issues. The inlet ducting will not be going to the roof above the engine. It will come right out through the cover. Now if someone has a F1 scoop to spare, I suppose I could use that. I t is a good thing we have all year to do this. :P

I have to say you did a masterful job incorporating the throttle body to the inlets of the turbos. I wasn't sure how you were going to pull that off but the final result looks like a factory piece. Well done!
