Here is another grill, or engine, depending on how you look at it.

Vintage SBC Rajay Turbo System 327 350 383 400 T304
Period Correct for a Rail Gasser Nostalgia Rat Rod
For sale is a Vintage Rajay Turbocharger system for the small block Chevy. I have had this set up for about six years sitting on a display engine but have never run it. The guy I bought it from did run it on a rail dragster that won its class at gravelrama in Ohio a few years in the late 90's. The kit was originally designed to not use a wastegate but I planned to run higher boost so I have obtained a use Turbonetics waste gate that uses diaphrams you can change. The diaphram in the waste gate is 6psi, but you can still buy these from Turbonetics to change to whatever you want to. The kit previously did not have a blowoff valve either, but I'm including a new Tial style 38mm adjustable blow off valve.
They guy I bought it from said he had the turbo rebuilt after taking it off the rail, but I have not opened up the turbo to inspect for sure. I'm also including a full turbo rebuilt kit that I bought from Turbo City, that I planned to install before running the turbo. Overall this is probably one of the most complete kits you would find of this style. This is a draw through turbo meaning the carb mounts on the front of the turbo. Included is the turbo passenger side manifold, drivers side manifold, Rajay T304 Turbo that I was told was rebuilt when I bought this kit. Also included is a Turbonetics adjustable waste gate, TIAL style blowoff falve, turbo rebuilt kit, and all the piping/brackets show in the picture.
What you would need to come up with on your own would be a crossover pipe from one manifold to the other, but since all vehicles configurations are different you would need to do this with any kit. You would also need oil pressure lines but you can buy a pair on ebay for $30.00. Other than welding up your exhaust this should be a ready to go system. Located in Tempe, near ASU.

Those are cute little motors...

Tripper,
Why did you have that motor carbed. I would love to put at least a throttle body injection on mine.
