thielt1 I wish I had more time to work on this right now but I am working on it every chance I get.

Cold side Tubing is mocked up and welded. Welding is a little rough but we will be smoothing it out for a better finish. Also we were using a tig tip that was not ideal for our situation. It was working perfect on flat aluminum but was chunking up on the piping so we spoke with someone at airgas and I must have bought the wrong tungsten at some point.

Found a Place to mount the solenoid, glad I waited because I was going to mount it on the frame rail but it was getting very frustrating to make it work.

I needed to fab up some brackets to hold the carbon for the dash which holds two gauges and the on/off switch. It needed to be very strong because of the weight of the switch so I came up with something that can be screwed into the standard location to hold the dash together and then you are still able to bolt to the rivnuts on the bracket. I think the pictures will explain it better but it was very time consuming but I couldn't think of any other option.

I will try and get some more pictures up after the race weekend as I did a few other things.

Rudel It's been a while since I've been here Thielt.

'Good to see you figured out the resistors. I see you have 2 oil coolers. Is one in-line with the turbo?
