Yes that is Larry Bird from Hagerstown ,Md. He was at the banquet this year with us. It is in a 66 Valiant. He hopes to race with us in the Fall or next season for sure.

Looks like it's plumber through an intercooler.

I figured out the intercooler...…….

Looks like the exhaust section is in front and heat wrapped.

To me it looks like the input to the compressor goes forward to the intercooler. (after making a 180 to the fender)

Where's the output of the compressor?

The compressor outlet points straight at the inner fender, going through right in front of the upper A-arm where I assume it turns forward/down to reach the driver's side of the intercooler.

You can just make it out past the inner fender ridge.

I really like that turbo header 8)
Who's gonna start selling those :idea: :?: :wink:
