    Block off the intake, plumb up a big tank of water in the back seat and, and you have a P-40 with boil off.

    Same group. With the TF restoration of PM taking so long, they needed something bring in the mean time. Although some OF PM's parts flew on another racer this year.

    You can't restore PM to a TF. It was never a production mustang to start with. It can be converted, and that would be an epic fail.

    OK, so let me make sure I've got this right -- you go up to Idaho and borrow this tank from the Paul family...

    Ya do a bit of sealing and plumbing and add a little chimney, and you've got this...




    It works for me!

    Why not?!

    In reality, you would probably need a bigger tank, and you would probably only be spraying water, rather than having a true boil off, so you might only be able to reduce the intake rather than closing it off altogether....But still

    Also would be fun to try some "whale bumps" over the gun ports.
