Coast... Car I'd never finish. Air bucket will be done this year.

Starting reference... 11 1/16".






Adjustments... Channel for engine release cable has been pulled down slightly by crevice area. Duct area that fits into crevice has been wedged-formed more. Duct area just ahead of crevice has been squashed. Above is inside view of duct is looking away from intake end. 3" OD duct would now seem a better solution in terms of fitment above wheel. How air flow would react to narrower passageway is questionable. (Am staying with 4" OD.)




13/16” raise accomplished. (Realize now I did not place tape measure in same position for second reference. Tape measure is in a more vertical position second time. Might make a 1/16" difference. So 3/4" riase.) Can raise more but need to lengthen duct so it can arch up further. Have extended as much as possible now by resetting existing couplings. Got maybe 1" more duct length. Would need to replace a coupling with longer version to get length needed. Will run this position and see what happens.

1000 mile marker

Am looking at parts to check install is staying installed and for damage. Turbine blades are not checked at this stage due to the challenge that exists to remove and reinstall unit---problem being the insulation. Taking turbine out is easy. Putting it back in watertight condition is less so. For now am relying on sound to say turbine is working (sounding) as it should. Have been constantly running it when driving car with bypass switch. Insulation near turbine is not a good design. Needs rethink.



After squashing duct further into crevice between fender and body (the first adjustment), there’s far less contact between tire and duct. Squashing duct further into crevice is not happening. Can see internal deformation of CEET duct in a post above. Contact as seen is acceptable for now. Were ride height of car a bit higher… would be no problem here. (Fender to ground = 23”.) Anticipated wear from debris being slung from tire onto system is absent---rubber "protection" looks as good as when it was installed but for water marks.




Intake duct is where it was last seen. Bypass valve is “exercised” on occasion by closing intake off with hand. Pitch of turbine returning as it was prior to blocking intake suggests valve closing fully. Filter’s clean.




Condenser’s outlet surface is undamaged. So too are surface areas facing tire.

Summer temps are coming on (in Miami.) Plan is to charge system towards end of this month---end of May (‘18). Looking for 90+ degree ambient to work in.
