    Just finished up the top of the water tank. Next step is to mount the 2000 gph pump on the bottom of the tank, and then tack the sides on.

    Made some more progress this weekend. Finalized the intercooler position and made a hold down for it. Made up the charge tubing to the intercooler, and from the intercooler to the engine (not shown) and tacked the flanges together. Now that the intercooler position is fixed I can do the final welding on the charge tubing and can get back to working on finishing the intercooler water tank and the plumbing for it. Not as exciting as Offroader's monster dyno pull, but it's progress none the less.

    Great job Rich. Have you ever used a cutting fluid for aluminium? I use a fluid called A9 it works the best and doesn't interfere with welding and your tools wont build up with aluminium. If you try it you will be sold on it I guarantee it

    Thanks Bh. My fabrication seems fairly remedial after seeing your wicked cool boat project. Hopefully I'll gain that level of skill at some point before I die.

    I normally use Tap Magic Aluminum, but I'll swing by Fastenal pick up some A9 Green and give it a shot. Thanks for the tip.

    Dam Rich dont sell your self so short. Your work is top notch in every way that I have seen. It would be fun to do a project together some day.

    Maybe we could add a turbocharger Hayabusa engine to your new boat.
