Some top side views of the installed engine. Some 6BT parts here. Intake and air cleaner; 6BT air horn mounted on a shortened 6BT intake plate. A 2" pressure gauge can be seen on top of my remote oil filter housing that can't be seen here. Beside that and below the alternator is the Ford vacuum pump; and below that is a Sanden A/C compressor. A Saab intercooler is still in front of the radiator but is diconnected. Thought it was causing a pressure drop at that time. My tests may have been inaccurate when I was testing it. Will be putting an intercooler back in soon. Had the egt's running a tad high during boat towing last year without the intercooler. The serpentine belt allignment is critical for good belt life. I have 30,000 miles on this belt and can still read the belt numbers. The stainless turbo tubing is 2.5" stock. Engine is monitored by a digital system monitor on a 2" by 4" LCD display made by my brother and monitors the exhaust thermocouple, coolant temperature, RPM's, boost pressure and three user selectable temperatures. This unit allows for audible alarming at any process value setpoints that I program, also recording maximum and minimum values of any parameter with the ability to reset these max/min values. The intake has the 6BT heaters which are controlled by a home built temperature control circuit to match the 6BT intake heater grid temperature tables.
