    Will different distances of carburetor intake pipe affect imbalance?

    How is the compressed air getting from the turbo to the carb inlet ? Very nice work mind. Ah just noticed the intercooler in front of the rad, all clear now.

    Hi- beautiful work! Are any pictures available of the assembled crank shaft? The counterweights are 'full circle'?

    Thanks.

    Amazing work! I hope its not too much to ask but would you like to share some details about the turbo? Are you planning on connecting it to the intake? I know its probably not going to make any boost at this scale but i still fancy the idea. Keep it up! Cheers!

    So newbie question. Is that a kit kit or barstock? Where did you find plans or supplies? Very nice work.

    That’s absolutely beautiful, great craftsmanship and sounds as good as it looks. Were these built to plans or is it your own design?
