    I'm kind of curious why he is selling after only 20 minutes of use and at a steal.

    I think he’s going big block and couldn’t cut up the inner fenders of his charger. I talked with him to see about where he got the turbo headers. Seemed like a nice guy.

    So I spoke with PTC and they changed the front of the converter, tightened it up a little throughout and a lot in high gear to hold the boost.

      So I got another head all together and re assembled the engine. Fired it up and it developed a valve train noise during break in. I’m gonna pull the rockers and intake tomorrow but I’m thinking I lost the cam during break in. Seems like every time I make progress something comes up to kick me in the nuts. Haha starting to loose sight of this thing hitting the road in the spring.

      I hear you on that, at least yours is running. Dont let it sway you, you've done some great work, better now then driving down the road or freeway and it let's go.

          Looking good!
          What elec water pump is that? Looks familiar. Does it allow more space than a stock water pump?

          It’s a moroso pump I got from one of the members here. It has good clearance probably 2” between the fans and pump.

            Ran a dry fit to check hood clearance.... that will be an issue. Anyone using a shorter carb hat they are happy with?

              Your intake manifold is the hood clearence problem. Lol a regular torker would work fine, you are force feeding the engine so the super victor is overkill in my book. Just my 2cents

              not overkill with boost, I agree though a shorter intake would solve it. I just can't justify buying another new intake.

              Looks like you are already running a low pro style hat, you will have to be careful trying to go anymore low pro, guys have had distribution issues from trying to force the air into such a tight turn before the carb/throttle body.

              Sell it, could fetch some good money. Then buy a shorter one.

              I’m running an M1 and a spectre air hat. I did modify the front down at an angle to clear the hood. Not sure if this pic shows. I can get another Sunday evening.

              I’d love to check out your build I’m very curious about placing the turbo on the drivers side. Do you have a build thread?

                It was a little generic, did that on purpose. Most people just want pictures anyway. Pm for details

                  I agree, there are people leaving a ton of power on the table with poor hat design. Procharger and extreme velocity are the two best ones out there. The super victor is a great choice for boost. You have to remember that boost is multiplying your base hp and the more base you make the less boost you need to make your goal and if the flow path is good it'll make the turbo work less and that means less heat and less heat means less detonation. Another tip to remember is that the carb hats affect A/F from cylinder to cylinder so be careful with your tune up. The left rear cylinder will run lean with the hat on like it is in the picture.

                    I don’t see getting around cutting the hood. I’ll probably end up getting a better hat. I appreciate they input. What do you run for ignition? Will a stock electronic ignition work or is a Cdi box worth putting in? I’ve got a 6AL but might just go back to mopar electronic if I will do.
