Thanks guys. I did go back to the Bell books and site again last night.

This is a race-only application so heat-sink ability while idling isnt a concern, but weight up high, WOT flow and reduction of any "lag" due to unnecessary volume between the supercharger and the intake are concerns.

The tail "opening" is only 14" front-to-back so the intercooler will already exceed that area.

Bell says the first 1/4 depth of the intercooler does 3/4 of the work. So maybe maximise the width of 20", 4" depth and 16" length is the go? That leaves 4" on each end for tanks and baffles. If we mount it all the way up to the bottom of the tail we should be able to easily "seal" it so all the engine fan's air comes in through the intercooler. It will also leave room underneath it so we can mount a "pull" fan underneath the intercooler if that proves necessary.

Any help or suggestions?

BTW, I'm not doing the building, Paul is. I'm just doin the learnin' and the payin' of bills.
