Well, I thought about it, but I would need to take about 3 to 4" from the inlet or redo the rear former, so the Y section would pass thru it, last Resort, if I don't find a custom bifurcated pipe at the right price.

I have what may be a stupid question. Is the turbine currently placed where it should be? I would imagine the exhaust is set to a length of where the turbine should be. And I also wonder if it has been moved rearward that much how will it affect the cg. Just some thoughts I have had on this since reading your work.

I was thinking the same thing, But assumed Cg would get a little bit off. But could be worth a try?

Well, guys remember this was a twin ducted glow engine fan, so most people are mounting the turbine toward the rear and mounting the 100oz tank in front of the turbine, the tank will be on the CG line, well I find a guy in Canada that make bifurcated and at a real price, that I can live with, the last price I got was $600.00 !!!, so this guy is awesome, here some pictures.

Well, like you said, building the turbine mount and mounting and aligning the turbine, then I will install the two large Robert air tank, run the air lines, build a board for the electronic up front, install UAT tank, I'm running a 100oz fuel tank and two 40oz tank, that should give me a 10 to 13 minute run time, I'm looking for a 5" wheels with brakes, I think Robert has a set on sale right now, hoping to order them tomorrow.
