Final thought for the day;

Looks like from what I have seen...we are all running the intercooler reversed on this swap. So there are three scenarios;

1. The intercooler will not be a "holding tank" for oil in case of a turbo seal going out as it will slowly enter the engine and not run-away. (Oil will not accumulate.)

2. We are inviting a run-away by running the bottom of ic to the intake in case of a tubo seal failure. (Oil has direct path)

3. Is there an adverse effect on cooling charge air as hot air rises? Most heat exchangers flow from the bottom to the top forcing the media to climb and be subjected to the influence for a longer duration.

Either way, think I will add and air shutoff valve behind filter. Not for the pulling track, just to keep my hat and shirt in case it all goes south.

Sooo I went off the farm for intercooling… I have a water to air intercooler that sits in the direct path from hot side to cold side… it was its own water supply and pump … i mounted twin small radiators on the front to keep the coolant cool while moving, did decrease exhaust temps

It really shouldn’t matter on the placement of the intercooler high or low from an efficiency standpoint… the cfm’s will far outweigh any loss of efficiency due to heat migration or Brownian motion in air

I had the same concern in the runaway, let me know what you find on the air shut off, for now I’m just packing a CO2 extinguisher jic,,, not for any fire (well I suppose it could be) but to shut down all combustion no matter where it comes from

After lots of looking at the compound setup I chose a more conventional route. S360 on manifold and S475 above. Will see how pressure ratios are before adding a gate.

The 4094 was just looking too small for the atmosphere on the turbine wheel/housing. It was just a tad too big as a single with the zf6. I will miss its pretty sound.

The stainless manifold looks nice, slight mods will bolt right on.

Will be October before I get a break from work to get it together.
