Got mine back up and running, still tuning but happy with where I'm at.

twin turbo supercharged with 200hp nitrus shot

This guy is goofy. The way he has the pressure of the turbos routed, all it's doing is just blowing hot air around the top of the carbs. It would be the same as hooking up a turbo and then plumbing it into the top of an open element air cleaner.

I don't think that's the boost charge going into the air scoop. Rather it's the cold air intake for the turbo. The charge usually comes out the side of the turbine. Regardless. This setup is all show and no go. Having two sources of boost like this is not like putting two batteries in series to develop more voltage. Without some kind of one way valve, the early boost from the supercharger would flow back up the turbo creating a pressure lock. This would stall the turbine from spinning fast enough to create any boost. If the turbo creates more pressure than the supercharger it would not multiply boost because it would just blow back up through the S/C intake. Although it looks impressive, this setup is totally pointless because the only thing you'll get is more flow, not more boost. There's only so much flow a motor can ingest without boost forcing it to swallow more. Doing one or the other forced induction right will get you more go, but stacking a bunch of ridiculous shit on your car will bet you more show.

Which is what I thought at too first (the intakes) but look at the rear of it. Looks to me like they are just running above the carbs.

Best inline 4 engine that Japan has ever built. (ed. for production car use)

 

No bias here, thats just a fact.

 

Interesting build, wonder what power hes making, Im guessing over 300.

 

Not without spark plugs or wires! LOL! :D

the guy with the camaro states it is for show he has never run it down a track and never intends to 

the paint is around 10 years old and he had no idea what power it puts out it has never been on a dyno

I don't care how much power it makes, the GM LSPOS is the ugliest goddamned engine ever made! Those COP covers would help a lot.

 

Seriously though, you need to get a patent for that valve cover cap design ASAP before some asshats like SLP see it and steal your design and make millions off it.

I am working on a set of coil cover LS valve covers :)

Very nice! I can't wait to see the finished product. are you gonna bring the prototype by the shop for a test fit?
