Aft of the turbo flows a 2" mandrel bent exhaust with scavenging tapered cone tail pipe. Along and wrapped outside of the 2" exhaust are two 3" x 48" heat exchangers. For a organic rankine cycle to generate additional power from the exhaust waste heat. Scroll expander steam engine included see videos.
