    Love those valve covers! They do a pretty good job of obscuring the newer engine.

    Have you had any problems with those coils over heating due to their placement beneath the radiator hose?

    That engine compartment is a bit tight for an easy turbo installation. You might remember that I'm going with twin large frame turbos mid mounted, attached to the frame. Let me know if I can be of any help.

    I had considered the heat issue. But I have a friend that drives a northstar deville and we threw a meat thermometer on the motor by the coil pack and drive it to work which is about 25 miles. It read 220° right next to the coil pack.. I was kind of surprised that it would handle that kind of heat.. I hoping that there's a little more airflow where I mounted mine. I originally wanted to mount it in the back of the intake but there won't be enough room once I put the 2xtbi on there.

    Thanks for the tip! That looks like it could be a winner.

    I was able to add crank trigger to my tractor, which performed badly with a
    completely fixed spark timing on a 90 degree 2 cyl 0.7L. This totally
    changed and improved the engine in all situations. Used some Eival Bay
    brand F used parts at modest cost, and a controller by AUTOSPORT LABS.
