I agree, very cool project.  I have always been intrigued by twin engine possibilities but haven't yet found a customer crazy enough to do it...

A few details I'm curious about;

  1. Single turbo choice seems pretty odd when you consider how far the exhaust gas from the rear engine has to travel all the way to the front - it obviously works ok but what was the logic behind that choice?
  2. What's the two different sized intercoolers about?
  3. I assume the front engine would have less traction than the rear - what strategies do you use to keep wheel speeds roughly in sync?
