      Dual Plenum design gives pretty even velocity to all cylinders.

      Throttle body flange. I asked for (3) but he only made (1) and after 2 months I just took the rest of my material back. Ill just try to make them myself. The one he made looks good though.

      Indeed.

      Keep in mind, this is a famous project... It has been a topic of discussion everywhere, from vortex to top gear.

      I am doing very low volume parts, so I imagine I couldnt afford it.

      I had the initial parts quoted a long time ago from some shops in my area with CNCs and they all wanted an arm and a leg for some very simple parts.

      The guy that cut the base flange gives me a good deal because we used to use him a bunch when I work at a motorcycle shop. He also doesnt run the CNC that much because its super old and you have to draw the part into the program, so its not like he stopping a big job to cut my stuff. But its also a pain for me because I cant just send him a dxf or g-code. I have to give a drawing and hope he transfers it correctly.


      But that being said, next time I need something cut Ill send you the file to be quoted. You guys make some awesome product.

      I welded a little at lunch yesterday and will hopefully finish during lunch today.

      I am welding a .25" plate/flange with radius'd openings to the C2 intake flange. Its not looking great, but its going to stay together for sure. haha. It is really hard welding between the runners with such a small amount of space.

      Heres the flange tacked in place and c-clamped together for welding.



      Ill take more pictures in a little while.

      I am not able to weld the inner parts with the tig welder so those ill have to do with a mig machine. I will need to do some sanding to make this part look decent. But it will be functional at least.

      It was awesome. I went with a group of 8 with some somewhat beginner climbers so we didnt do anything to crazy. We climbed Half Dome, 22hr day, because of some slow groups ahead of us on the climb we were doing. The last 2 pitches we did in the dark along with the 1000ft of 3rd class at the top. And we also did some single pitch stuff on El Cap.

      Ill let you know. Climbing partners are a good thing to have everywhere. You do the same. If your ever down in the states on the east coast.

    21. 10-08-2012 03:17 PM #687
      I went to Yosemite when i was about 8 years old and watched people climbing half dome. Always wanted to do it ever since. My first outdoor trip i climbed out in the dark with no headlamp lol pretty scary stuff. I'm glad you had a good time and everyone came back safe. It would be pretty sweet if we could get together and climb sometime.

      A few weeks ago i lead the hardest route i have ever lead at the gym i work at. Pretty stoked to get outside next year with a properly functioning shoulder. It's pretty frustrating getting strong at the end of the season lol.

      I cut out a couple panels for the plenum yesterday but I need to use the tig welder at work and we are having an ISO audit. So it will be a couple days, but soon I will have some more pictures of the plenum a little further along.

      Here is the C2 flange and the radiused flange welded and mounted to the motor. I used a flange I had made the the first try, therefore I had to weld the bolt holes shut. that is the reason for the blobs of weld between the cylinders.



      More to come... in the next couple days.

      Did some more work today at lunch. Ill post pictures later.

      I really need to buy a decent welder. The one at work is not cutting it for welding to these .5" flanges.

      Plenum secondary plenum welded. I have a little left on the jig then I can and the initial plenum with the s/c mounting flange.


      (not real happy with the welds "looks" but this part is sealed. Took a very long time to get this thing hot enough to melt that .5" flange)




      And the exhaust flange for a "long tube" header.... that will connect to a 3" exhaust.



      (Thanks Pete)

      Picked up the top flange from the machine shop today....

      And the other side of the i/c is almost done. I will weld the last two plates on tomorrow alone with the two 3/4 NPT bungs. Mini lathes are horrible, 1 hour per bung of turning.





      I also have more bits of the cut out and ready for welding tomorrow on the plenum. I will update pictures of that tomorrow.

      I am stumped. I finished welding the i/c and its leaking water, and I cant tell where from. Its coming out on both ends from the middle of the "finned" area. I will take some pictures in a bit. Maybe someone has seen something like this before.

      So I have a bad core!! Its missing one of the plates to seal the two parts. After all that work and time. I wish I would have known to look for this before hand.
