anyone have pictures of intercooled setups using the banks kit as a base. Pretty much anything intercooled with AC, PS full dress. I have a 400 smallblock built for turbos waiting to go into my 55 chevy (gonna break it in NA on a carb for now, and swap pumps and go efi when the turbos go in. Right now we're swapping frames, rear and tranny all at once so we're keeping it simple at first, body still needs to go on the rotiserie as well.)......and I do have a bunch of room, and looking at the graphs on the site, it seems that 100 octane non intercooled runs 2-3 pounds more boost than 91 intercooled, and the 91 intercooled outperforms the 100 octane non-intercooled, so I'm getting the feeling I'm leaving a bit of power on the table running non-intercooled. My engine builder said the bottom end on the engine (ross 8.5-1, oliver billet, cola crank), and the block (bowtie o-ringed, copper head gaskets, studded) is good for 1200-1300 if I want....So I'd at least like to explore the possibilities... Not an all out track effort, but I'd at least like something to humble the majority of the street cars around here (which ain't gonna be easy with 10's being the slower cars, and 8's the faster ones)

If you need design ideas just give me a call. You're one step ahead of many by having large amounts of room.
