    I can't believe no one has commented on this yet:

    I would like to see some sketches, pics, CAD drawings or mock-ups in SolidWorks, please. This is an option I hadn't heard or thought of. I'm intrigued.

    I had envisioned an old heater core with a plenum attached sitting in the valley pan

    I’ve used these manifolds for years in drag racing, the two piece Holley high ram intakes are the most common 1594BEF6-D32E-4152-940C-32C8F65F43D8.jpeg E1D28C82-D51D-44D3-8DED-3BD564C8D3E9.jpeg

    Now that is cool! -Drool

    Wouldn't placing something like that in the intake valley require a significant change to the layout of your compound turbo setup?

    Shucks:thanks:
    More than likely, but I usually change things up a few times before I get it the way I like.

    So how would you attach it to the heads, I would assume some custom tigged runners?

    The top and bottom of the intake is all rolled sheet metal aluminum with 5/8” flanges

    I wonder if it would be worth it to do like on the Dodge demons where they use the AC to help cool the intercooler even further

    * Citation needed. :)

    Is this based on Justin's experience? Cuz if it is, I'm not so sure it was the HP produced. More like he over-sprayed the water meth and hydrolocked it, IMHO.

    On the other hand, I've seen others break a rod for no apparent reason. Could be just a bad forging or old fatigued rod. :dunno

    I see where he is coming from there are a few things different in the idit motors mainly the rods but I've been running a n/a motor with a turbo for a bit regardless more power =more fatigue on parts not made for that kind of torque and hp . I'm looking for power and reliability I love that I can go out right now and start my truck and head anywhere my heart desires and never worry about any serious problems that being said I want to take a trip up the great Alaskan highway with my truck with my 9k pound camper

    Oh and iv run water meth I don't think they have a nozzle big enough to drown a idi I tried a lot and the biggest ones I would get a lot of sputter and white smoke and poor power that's all
