No, but you can see the 57 shell on the left if you look hard enough. I've not seen these cars, or my truck, for 2.5 years, remember :-)

They probably have deteriorated somewhat, but the 57 shell was in good shape, so it'll be OK enough.

Fred.

Fred, are you also going to use somekind of intercooler?
The turbo heats up the mixture a lot and having the air intake in the engine compartment doesn't help either.
You could use alcohol/water injection to cool the mixtrue though :P

I think with 7:1 - 8:1 compression and < 10psi with 98ron it won't need one. I know it does heat up a lot, but at low boost, it's no big deal. I'll be cringing the entire time, but... :-)
