This is my '30 roadster that I wanted to build with hidden fuel injection and dual turbo's. The body is all steel and was purchased 15 + years ago by my cousins father-in-law that passed away. If it had been an original roadster I would not have rodded it. I'm 78 so give me a little l forgiveness.

The fuel rails are from a 1980 Nissan Maxima V6 which have the side load injectors as you can see it is a tight fit. The fuel rails are cut and fitted to the Phenolic bl

Matching up the intake ports for the 4 x 2 intake.

After I had machined the fuel injector holes I cut up an old cracked flathead block to see what I was
messing with. I wasn't aware or the coolant passages around the ports and you can see I missed them but don't know how.

613672


Cleaned the block good.

A smooth surface for the o-rings to seal.

Drilling hole for oil line to filters.

The bottom pipe is the oil supply to two oil filters, the next fitting up is oil from the filters to the engine. The oil hole under this fitting is plugged and the oil has to go through the filters, the brass tee diverts oil to the turbos and the top is for pressure gauge.

You have a nice looking place to work also!

Here you can see the hold down screws with holes in them to tighten them and then a clip through the holes so the won't loosen and the engine swallows one.

Incredible! I am amazed at the detail. Thanks for sharing.

I live about 25 miles from his shop. When this Covid is behind us I could drive over to his shop. Thank you for the kind words.
