Too small for a torpedo, I'd guess a 250# bomb but I get your point.

Seriously dude, build this thing up and I'll send every good deal on craigslist your way. I just want to see this boosting 12 psi and shocking the hell out of people.

Given that he's from Montreal and likely has French as his primary language and English as secondary, I think he communicates his desires just fine. Unlike some who invent words to underscore their inbred impairment.

I will see about some pictures. I'm not really sure how to load them. I do paint and body work so this was a joke for my customers. The plan was rat rod army jeep it just hasn't made it that far yet.

So how much actual time/energy/work do you have wrapped up in this thing?

I'm not really sure I just played with it in my free time it was less than three months start to finish with me working full time. It could still use cleaning up around the edges. The rat rod craze helps hide a lot. I had to cut a lot of the miata I kept expecting it to fold like a taco but the little car surprised me. A lot of people think it would be heavy but it's actually so light the factory springs on busted struts lifted what was left as far as the struts would let it. I had to drop it to get factory ride hight. I have pushed it pretty hard with very little noticeable flex in the body.
