    Default Turbo build

    So has anyone actually did a turbo build on a enclosed engine compartment or is it always in a drag boat where the engine is always out in the open? Just wondering cause Im thinking of doing one in my velocity 280. Didn't know if heat would be a kill factor since its not an open engine compartment.

    Works fine if everything is water jacketed. There are some water cooled turbo exhaust housings available, or at the least aluminum water cooled heat shields for the turbos.
