Default Its Alive

New shop toy is almost as fun as the boat. Did or first run with it last night and had some pump plumbing issues. With the issues fixed today we did or first pulls and started learning how to use the Dyno. Played with it for about 3 hours and no calls from the neighbors yet.

Brian,

Congrats on completing the project, it looks great, very functional installation. Where did you end up drawing the intake air from?

Thanks Bob it has been a 7 year long battle to get this up and running doing it the right way. The fresh air intake for combustion comes through a 14 inch duct receiving conditioned shop air and the cell uses attic air from the building to flush the cell. The cell air system creates a 1" negative vacuum that also creates negative pressure in the fresh air tube which draws the shop air into it saturating the intake with the conditioned air. So far so good with the only complaint coming from my wife in the house about the noise. I am going to go talk to the neighbors today to see if a better muffler system is going to be needed to continue.

Here is a pic of the power louver intake system with 14" fresh air intake.

Scott,
Todds engines will not be going on the dyno (no headers for V-10's yet) but his gas tank should be here this week and we can get his project done over the winter.
