Very impressive.

Out of curiosity, why weren't the injectors placed in the individual runners at the base in the of the intake? I would think this would promote better fuel distribution.

Flame arrestors? Air filters?

Maybe they are??

We did not want to put them on the outside where the injectors and fuel rail and wiring would clutter up the engine.. We wanted to keep it as clean and organized looking as possible.

The injectors are inside firing into the intake runners

These engines were built for looks and we think the turbos look cool so we did not want to put anything infront of them so we put the air filters in the tubing going to the intercooler, and you do not need a flame arrestor when there is an intercooler and 30 feet of pipe and a turbo that the flame would have to make it through..... The 30 feet was a joke, For the people that say our plumbing is too long and won't work.

Looks like the prop slip is a little higher than you want. I am curious, did you see more prop slip at 160 mph versus a speed like around 120 mph?
