    etching is for anodize. It would need to be engraved :hmm:

    When I engrave the flanges I'll maybe throw a couple of these in. :hmm:

    Fabbing. There is no timeline for anything but everything is moving forward. I'm dedicated to it but also to other projects.

    For future reference, I'm not shy on posting updates on ANYTHING I'm working on. No update means...no update.

    That’s fine. I’ve been burning money lately. 80 isn’t my DD.

    Its worth taking a look at Safaris Turbo system for design ideas. The Safari Turbo system in my 1997 80 series has been there since new and survived the weather in WA, CA, and most importantly the summers in Phoenix AZ where many SC suffer.

    Still working on it. I think the first estimate was higher than expected. The cores from Bell are fairly cheap, but having them do the end tanks is quite expensive.

    I think the turbo kit and intercooler kit together were about $6800 total.

    The Bullet SC without intercooler is about $5500.

    I have a Setrab oil cooler/fan set up in my off-road VW engine buggy.

    They make intercoolers too.

    I’m pretty happy with their build quality. Not USA made, but Sweden.

    Their website has a bunch of info & performance calculators, but I don’t have numbers to plug in or know what I was looking at if I did.

    Not sure it was installed as part of a dealership package in 1997

    Started the oil drain fittings and made a jig for the production run of the 1FZTurbo parts. This will ensure perfectly perpendicular tapped holes for the turbo’s oil drain fitting.
