Thanks, buddy. The second picture is one I haven't seen before.

Also, I've discovered that the picture above with the yellow object and the hoses on the bottom is definately an electric version from Six Flags.

I talked to my contact at United Nuclear who was consulted on the jet design for the '89 batmobile and he said the following,
"At one time they really wanted to see if a turbine engine would work in the vehicle as it was configured.... and it wouldn't - so they just attached used aircraft parts here and there to make it look functional."

I asked him if he could identify any of the parts used and this is what he said,

"The red & Blue fittings are standard AN flare fittings & stainless steel braided hose. Looking at the placement, they appear to be the hydraulic brake lines. Everything else in the photo appears to be parts of exhaust manifolds and exhaust pipe from various sources."

Hey, I found this a really interesting post, and just for fun I pulled up the blueprints and sure enough, the blue-lithographs actually show the pipes from the top and side views. So there you go.

The picture on the right (original post above) seems to be the configuration used in the movies so I will go with that. The picture on the left is a Six Flags car and the other shown in this thread is an OnStar car.
