ya totally, 3.0 from that 924 GTR a while back. Notice the intake cam on that is exhaust or or 928 intake cam (?) with the keyway sticking out. Milledge and Raetech have had some stuff. I just wish someone would figure out how to do it affordable, I guess it will have to be me.

i just saw one yesterday, and wished i had my camera - it was a 968 engine with a full log ram setup - turbocharged, dry sumped, and all the bells and whistles, but 650hp

whose car is that?

ernie - no, that is not my friend's car - his is a 968 - it used to belong to tony garcia - we are pretty close to having it sorted out - like i said, we just had to undo a bunch of stuff some "experts" did

pretty typical "turbo mentality" stuff - "hey - let's throw big injectors and a standalone at it - that'll make it go" - all it does is run fat and cost a lot of money

then let's throw a big intercooler on it, but stick it way out front at the grill so all it does is create turbulence behind it, and preheat the radiator - didn't anybody teach them that you at least have to mount things like that very close to the radiator to make for efficient flow?

the minute i changed the intercooler to a 951 unit, and then put it in a place clear of the radiator flow, i picked up a pound of boost and dropped intake temps 40 degrees

now we are going back to the stock injectors and ecu, and doing proper mapping, instead of just throwing a bunch of fuel at it

with about 5lbs boost, we figure to see big torque down low where we want it, and a nice bump in overall power, but be very streetable, and most importantly, start and idle, as well as not run hot

i wonder if it's the same supercharger?

Rick it is "bluecamaro" from RL his is a very nice set up & well done compare to the other guy ,but I believe the first one the guy fabricated most of the parts himself hence a rougher looking job.

ernie9944,
I swear that pic looks like a Huntley or maybe a Lindsey Intake plenum, but it looks like it's sitting on a supercharger!?! Who's car is it? and where can I see it. I want Santa to bring me an SC just like dat!

it is a huntley - it is on top of an SC - it could even be the very same setup that is now on a car i am working on, and should have done in the next couple of weeks

funny - i am doing 2 supercharged 968s simultaneously, one roots, the other centrifugal

HOLY CRAP what a miserable task this is. I started out first thing this morning and mine still isn't stripped. First I tried soda blasting and that was worthless... it didn't take much off at all. Then I tried aluminum oxide blasting which was ok but very slow. Then I tried some wire wheels which were better but not great. Finally I pulled out a grinding disk and that kicked ass but couldn't get into many of the tight spots (there are tons of tight spots on these manifolds). That was followed with wire wheels again and then back to aluminum oxide blasting. It's getting there but I still have an hour or two worth of work to go before it's completely stripped.

If anyone else tries this I recommend getting a good chemical stripper first. It appears that these have 2 layers of powder coat... the stock bronze color with a black powder primer under it.

What I did was work the brush at full speed (3500rpm) very slowly and gently along the surface in a similar fashion to mowing the lawn. I got impatient and used force a couple of times, which left a few scar marks and ate off some of the part number written on the top. I used the brass brush set that has 3 different sizes and found myself switching bits frequently and using different angles of attack. Took me about 6 hours total, best thing to do is just zone out... you REALLY need a dust mask for this if it's been repainted before, because of lead dust and poison and stuff.

My workshop told me about a stripper called Aircraft Remover, but warned that it would eat into the aluminum if not careful

oh yeah, you cant grind all the paint off because of the tight spots... those need to be blasted with sand or chemicals

also you should peel what you can of the paint with a really sharp knife, i scraped it with a dagger and a lot flakes right off.. the black undercoat is probably just aluminum oxide, looks better when its gone

hey guys, what would be the steps to get my intake manifold look red like that? never done this before

and camshaft housing?

I have all these off for cylinder head job right now, and it would be nice to get the engine bay cleaned out a little bit

I was also thinking of red silicone coolant and vacuum hoses

could be too much red? lol
