And using same maths for a (say) 180 HP 6 cyl such as a hotted corvair...

My 140 HP engine already has 1 1/2" primaries.

Seems 2" secondaries would be ample big.

Any additional comments most welcome.

Sadly no "Kit parts Engines" with Vair...

You need to find VW shop with a Water Brake Dyno....they surely can handle 200 hp at 7000 rpm.

After you get a baseline..... then get the heads flowed and degree the Cam....

Here's what 380 hp looks like.... most likely 10 years in development..

That's enough photos for now I reckon. Heat exchangers all mocked up and will be installed tomorrow.

Thanks for viewing and thanks all for replying to my various posts during this project.

Very nice work, Dave. I'm assuming hose long straight pipes are down below the limit of travel for the suspension/drive shafts?

As J3M said those Zeniths will never work, so I will be happy to take them off your hands and pay shipping to bootwinking smiley

Great fabrication work, can not wait to see the Corvair/914 performance data compared to the factory 914-6.

Good Luck.
