This is my preliminary plane:

Find Turbo, Intercooler, and Oil Cooler system

The intercooler and oil cooler should make up for the lack of oil sprayers,
and I'll have the boost limited to 15 PSI tops. A decent sized oil cooler
and Intercooler should further push temperatures down.

Agree? Disagree?
