This poor little 912 has a serious case of rust oxide, so we are breathing new life into it with all new sheet metal. #porsche #rusty912 #porsche912 @cnwayland

On this day in 1945, marines began the invasion of iwo jima, so we put this together as a special homage to the old breed. "uncommon valor was a common virtue". semper fi gents. #ww2 #greatestgeneration #marines #iwojima #combat #getsome #repost from @zulufucxs

Component spotlight: we use @bellintercoolers on #oldsmokeyf1 the interstage setup they custom designed specifically for smokey uses a water to air cooler in between the big atmospheric turbo and the smaller high pressure turbo. this dramatically lowers the intake temp into the high pressure turbo. the final stage is cooled by a huge air to air unit. the much lower intake temperatures also help keep egt's lower. bell cores are the most efficient cores available, and outflow all of the overseas cores by a large margin. bell can make any shape or size you need. #bellintercoolers #bell #intercoolers photos by @jamez.svt

Component spotlight: we use @ptpturboblankets heat wrap, thermal barrier and turbo blankets to control heat. wrapping your header and hot pipe keeps the heat in the pipes and out of your engine bay, decreasing spool time, and underhood temps. #protectedbyptp #ptp #ptpturboblankets

@turbobygarrett sure makes some beautifully machined compressor wheels. admiring their work while the housings are getting prepped for polishing. this is the 94mm wheel from the gtx5533r #turbobygarrett #turbolife #garretturbo #oldsmokeyf1

Great shot of #oldsmokeyf1 sans hood by my good friend @visualsofkings @kingshurley . . old smokey f1 is a purpose built, tube chassis race truck powered by a 1000hp twin turbo cummins diesel from a freightliner truck. #chucklesgarage #teamoldsmokeyf1
