Oklahoma Willy - Links to Video and Media footage
Finally got the Viper 535 jet engine running. Not much to see until I get the afterburner on, but very noisy.
Here is a quick run, we used 4 gallons of fuel!
In this video I am running the engine without the afterburner fitted, so I can test the effectiveness of the hot streak ignition system. It works well!
Finally got everything plumbed up and tested the AB on the Jet engine. The pump seems to work fine and creates a great smoke show.
The video is 5 minutes long, but if you fast forward to 2 minutes in, you will see the smoke first at 43% then 60% then 80%.
Finally got the hot streak working. All works fine now, didn't dare go above 70% too much power, will have to wait until the engine is mounted on the car!

I love the way the cameraman backs away as the jet gets louder !! Pussy.
