Exactly! Break out the hole saw. Matt, are you running a mechanical fuel pump? Are you going to run a line to reference the pressure to the intake?

Don't think I'll have to. Going to limit it to 4-5 psi... time will tell...

Wasn't planning on running a BOV... but found the 1" Vac / Press. differential unit for $12 and want to play with one...

even found a 24x7x2" Aluminum intercooler for $59!

I love that your doing this Matt! I was planning to do a similar setup with the turbo down low a few years ago but decided I didn't want to break another engine for a while haha. I still have dreams to put a cheap roots blower on mine!

I've read that a blow through setup without a blow off valve will go way rich when you let off as the pressure spike pushes fuel through the idle circuit.

And I know this was talked about but I didn't read in detail so I don't know what came of it, but you could run a small scavenge pump to make sure the oil gets out of the CHRA since it's mounted so low.

This is were having a " Mule" engine comes in handy.. I can work out most problems on the stand..and still drive my car...

Like the drain! I'll use clear tubing to be able to see the actual flow. Turns out these K03/4's suffer from over oiling... So I've got the correct restrictor
1.8 mm 0.060"... less oil!

This engine has '62-3 carbs... no Power Valve..

I'll dial in the BOV for 4-5 psi.


I'm close to $300 into this... limit is $500

On that topic, Dave Binnie (who is using the 4 carb crossover) used the stock j bolts and used the oil filter adapter gasket as the gasket between the sheet metal crossover and the carbs. He said it works well.

He also found he had to weld the crossover at the sheet metal fold to prevent it from spreading and leaking, however, he is running much more boost.

Hopefully some good progress this week... weather is cold!! So Garage time is needed!

Poured most of the day.....Lots of hot coffee... recliner and warm garage....ggg

Installed drain system... clear tubing for test... replace with Flared steel line later...

Worked on the Tin... knew everything would fit!... but I had forgotten about the PG's dipstick! [ small pilot hole near inlet filter ]... will add a 45 elbow to Air filter to move it away.

Steel tube is "pass-thru" for Pressurized air. ..needed the opening to the right for "above" adjustment of BOV..crawling under sucks nowadaZe!

Will fab the removable cover for this area tomorrow... still waiting on oil line....

The Criteria for this is to have a nice driving 110/pg that now takes off briskly when you step further on the pedal than normal...increasing torque immediately while still under 2000rpm...maybe adding 20 hp in that range...

A Corvair engine that runs in the 25-30% efficiency range instead of 20%... higher mileage.. 100% of the time it's driven..

A engine that doesn't overheat at highway speeds /rpm / loads, yet passes cars "Briskly" with an added 50-60 hp and a top speed of over 150 mph!!! GGG

A car, most likely classed as Improved Stock-3, that beats all the others in that class... at the 2020 Convention Autocross!

And , of course, spanks Davey MotoMOUTH and his 4 wheeled chicken Plucker hot smiley

While costing less than $500 to build.... note: I'm at $340 at this point..

I like it!!! 150 mph would be scary, but that extra 50 to 60 hp would be great, especially at highway speeds for passing. The budget you put on yourself is also another fun factor. If you can keep to the budget and even get close to your desired results is definitely Corvair mindset. Keep it up Matt, definitely a fun build smileys with beerthumbs upthumbs up
