    Saw this interesting engine bay at Zcon. Don't know much about F.I. but don't think this setup is totally stock.

    Looks like a draw-through-carb turbo set-up with nitrous.

    The carb is in the lower front corner, the turbo is just in front of the brake fluid reservoirs and the hard lines near the centre of the valve cover seem like the nitrous distribution system.

    Quite the setup.
    Wonder why he went with green for the valve cover.

    What's under the blue cover where the battery is supposed to be? Another 4 barrel?

    Close-up of the nitrous injectors. Wonder why there's two for each cylinder. Maybe one is for nitrous, the other for alcohol or something.

    So looks like if you've got a F.I. head with carbs, turbo'd or not, you could use the injector ports for juice. Hmmm.....

    I would guess that one is for the nitrous oxide and the other is for fuel. Going lean while boosting would be very bad.

    I swear that blue square thing upper right where the battery should be is a modified tupperware container. Likely storage for water or methonal injection. Well, at least it has a life time garantee!

    There is another interesting black box in front of the Tupperware container too (sort of in the area where some piston AC compressors go)

    IMO the blue thing is a shaving kit and the black one is a coffee maker.
