Default rio roses pics

Anyone have any pics of this boat from under the hatch? Or is it top secret? This is the best I found. It looks like the blower is set way back.

For instance, the motors in post 1 look like the blower is set farther back on the intercooler than the bud engines are. Maybe it is just an illusion. Just curious.

They are custom built intercoolers....and PSi discharges air in a way that it needs to be redirected for proper management...so someone might be trying to accomodate this issue...nobody knows who builds his kilo motors???....

The motors he used for the last record was the Sterling 1550s.The motors he is attempting to use now are twin turbo deals.It is a guy from Canada who built them.They make 2200HP.They seem to have problems
