Looks like the head of a 4 cyl motor with a turbo on each exhaust port... Pretty sweet!

That's what it looks like to me, too. It's not set up for intercooling, so it won't be very efficient, but it looks neat.

Actually the big blue elbow is sending all of that compressed air down somewhere. Methinks it's to an intercooler, since it's pointing down.

Yeah, I was an idiot. I wasn't thinking about airflow through the compressor section and was thinking that was the inlet, for some reason.
