Tuomo,

That exhaust look great! John has really gotten good at fabricating. Are you coating the exhaust after the cats as well?

I can't wait to see / read about the final product. You're a lucky guy.

No, just the pre-cat downpipe. The catback is goint to be just natural stainless color.

Floor's done and cured, thanks to all for advice and suggestions! Don't mind the leaves, those got blown in by the wind waiting for the fumes to clear.

Jealousy levels are rising to dangerous levels.

Great job with the car and the garage.

Thanks guys. By the way, moving SUCKS!

Some other things do not suck, however. If a picture is worth thousand words, what's a picture with words in it worth then?

Two questions.

How are you ducting cool air into the wheel well area and where are you going to run the lines for the cooler?

The intercooler is air to air.

The coolant air first. A hole is cut to the bumper/facade for air inlet (on both sides of course, the system is symmetric). This is a high-pressure zone. There's a shroud that directs all the air to the intercooler. On the other side, there's the low pressure zone in the wheelwell. Logically it should flow a lot of coolant air becasue of the pressure differential and because of the shrouding, all that air has to go thru the intercooler.

The charge air second. The turbochargers feed the intercoolers from low level, as the compressors are tucked under the V-block wings. The air goes thru the element and then is taken thru a hole in the fenderwall into the main engine compartment. That charge air pipe will eventually end up in a metal plenum box that is similar to the stock air box, except no filter.

Default Whirlpool

Some progress on the concert venue, still a lot to do. Got a couple of workbenches and put them together into a single one. The dimensions are 38" H x 96" W x 50" D. Made by Whirlpool, felt a bit like buying a dishwasher.

Also, I was able to import this wonderful device here and used it in installing the workbenches. It's called "vatupassi" in Finnish. It's got these curved fluid tubes in it, with a gas bubble in the fluid. It basically helps in building and installing things perfectly level. From inspecting the house that I just bought, it's obvious that nobody in the US residential construction has never, ever heard of, let alone seen, this device. Got to figure out a catchy English name for this device and start selling it here, it'll revolutionarize the residential construction industry and I'll make millions! $$$!

That comment about the level - that's the funnies **** I have heard in a while. Hilarious. I'll add to your new business plan. Its a great concept that has not been used in the US for a while - I call it a T-square, but you may come up with a better name. Both yours and my new items will change house building in America forever.

Looks very nice! Those downpipes must be one heck of a tight fit. One side for the narrow and the other for the wideband O2?
