I should have taken pics at the Stenod Racing open house since it was cleaned and shined but I took these a few days before and they will have to suffice. I'm hoping to fire it up in time to put on the chains and do some snowplowing with it.





Maybe get it on the dyno before November comes...well, that's my goal at least.

We were at the Stenod Open house. Seen your car there LT. Looks good, talk about your tight squeeze. There is going to be a few toys coming out of there for 10.5 outlaw at Milan. Some might want to watch out, their street car runs 8.80's and is street driven with power steering, heat, and tunes :shock:

LTLHomer's turbo setup has already gone 8.29 and went 170 MPH last year from the guy he got it from. It was a street car too, lol.

Of course for Milan next year, we have a double dose of insanity in order. Harlan went with some newer cooler looking twin turbos. His car will lose the stock suspension from last year as well. Both Firebirds will be 25.2 backhalf turbo cars. Should get them out in the spring. There are at least two more being built in another shop down the street that are turbo charged as well as I heard that Gilsbach is switching Golobo's over to turbo too. It should be a very very fun time at Milan next year.






If you're patient enough to go through all the open house pictures you'll see some more angles. We're going to update the website every couple of weeks with our progress.

Derty you got enough birds to spare in that garage. Very unique how the turbos sit were the fog-lamps use to 8)

Yeah, we have a few F-body cars in there for sure. The Mustang street cars in there are pretty quick though too.

One of the other unique things about the turbo placement that we're doing, the cold side plumbing is tucked up under the outside fender. There won't be any visible cold side piping under the hood like how most guys do it.

Yeh it keeps ya kinda humble when you have like a 1000hp setup and you're one of the slower cars in the shop...lol

Can't say enough good things about the guys over at Stenod.

Hey Derty,How are you going to run the oil system on those turbos? I thought you needed to have them above the oil pan to drain them off? Are you going to use some sort of oil pump on them?

I'm sure he'll chime in but they are incorporating it into their dry sump system...that's the jist of it at least.

We both have a 5 stage dry sump pump. Three stages on the motor, fourth actually off the tank to feed the motor and we T off that to feed the turbo too. The fifth stage is a scavenge off a drain tank.

Essentially we are creating a dry sump tank for the turbo to drain into. It has internal baffles for scavenging the oil out with the pump. We use a check valve style regulator on the oil feed into the turbo, so we shouldn't be sucking more oil than what we collect in the drain can.

Some production and aftermarket turbo setups do something similar to this this when they mount the turbos way down low like that under the motor. When Stenod and Harlan both had the Incon twin turbo kits on their cars years ago they used to pump the drains back up to the motor because the turbos were down by where the cats used to be. Some use a Accusump sort of pump to get it done. We're going to give that a whirl at least with our larger pumps. It shouldn't be too much of a problem. We'll let you know how it works though :shock: .
