    It could be done either way but I'm going to go open loop to keep a constant fresh supply of water going to it

    Re: Waveblaster 1 with Turbocharged Spark Engine

    The rest of the materials came in while I was on vacation so I worked on it a little bit yesterday while I had a few hours. Gas tank mounts glassed in, oem spark tank straps is what I used and the tank fits nicely, even with the front foam in. Started fabricating the uppipe and downpipe and just have a little more to do before getting it welded out. Pics below

    Re: Waveblaster 1 with Turbocharged Spark Engine

    Got everything tacked up over the weekend and ready to have tigged up. Had to do some trimming to the ends of a couple pieces of pipe to get the fit just right into the flanges. Also, cut the manifold pipe down some. Instead of welding a huge piece onto the manifold and mounting the turbo right off that where some of the spark kits have shown to crack welds, I put a bellow to allow flexing. It is only 3" long and I'll probably put some heat wrap around it. I have a aluminum to stainless V-Band flange that comes right off of the exhaust manifold and there won't be any weight of the turbo supported on that.... only the pipe itself. I'll be able to get a good weld on the inside and outside of that aluminum flange.

    After I got everything tacked up, I talked with Evan Kassing with GRF Racing about some intake manifold stuff and decided it would be best to have EGT's installed for each cylinder. Since I am making a custom intake manifold, I wouldn't want one cylinder to end up running leaner than the other so an egt per cylinder monitored by motec will help with that. I will have to machine a spacer out of a 2" thick piece which I didn't have on hand. So for purposes of tacking everything up and accounting for the 2" exhaust spacer, I took 2 - 1" pieces of billet and rigged it up where I had 2" total mocked up.

    I ended up having to change the angle of the uppipe some due to the exhaust spacer mentioned above. Instead of being a nice clean straight piece, it has a kink to it but I had to do it like that to clear the footwell area on the top deck. I also had to shorten the uppipe a little to move the whole turbo setup forward by roughly 2".

    Motel uses an air mass meter? Any reason not to run it off map? Will be a bit more reliable and only slightly harder to tune

    Looking good Ricky! Can’t wait to see this thing run. I know it’s been said before, but man, that thing looks like it was meant to be in there.

    Scottie, what is the fastest b1 setup you have seen?
    triceps are the biceps of the back of your arm.
