    If you can live with 950Hp, you need balls of steel, and steel has a high enough melting point that very high temperatures under the dash area should not be a problem.
     
  7. That should do just fine:D:D

    I have not used this, but I have used their other products and I must say that they are great! A layer of this and the some of their other products should do the trick. The guy that I talk to there is Ant (yup, that's what he goes by!). Pretty helpful dude.

    You may have said it somewhere, but I missed it. How much boost do you plan to run?

    Others have expressed concern over the heat. I will too. I think it's insane to bring that kind of heat into the passenger compartment as well as the associated danger from an exhaust leak.

    I can appreciate the desire for a hidden system and the desire for the power , but ... anyway hope it doesn't cook or kill you.
     
  18. It´s not inside the car - it´s hidden behind a second firewall.

    Even behind a second firewall , the heat will be an issue. As will exhaust fumes in the case of a leak, unless it is sealed airtight which is unlikely.

    I owned a Supercharged 04 Cobra mustang and the heat from boosting the engine was always an issue. That Mustang was the hottest car interior I have ever experienced. The roots blower made lots of heat, and even with an intercooler the heat was always present.

    Somewhere like Texas, the AC would have to work overtime to keep up.

    I think the undercar remote mount turbo's would be a better way to go.

    Hell yea, Love this thread!
     
  27. I'm with you Poloco. There are plenty of places to hide it under the car.

    I am actually too lazy to go through the trouble to hide it at all. But I do inderstand the asthetic and the idea of a sleepy little A bone is pretty cool.

    Wheelspinner you'll have to call it El Dormilon.
