Dude that's pretty baller. I assume by the way you're posting quotes and messages that you have someone building this for you? If you don't mind my asking, what are you paying for a manifold like this? Is it going into a boosted application? Man that just got me excited.
Disregard my new username and low post count, I've been here for a long time I just can't get onto my old account...
Just a rough sketch, but thats the idea I'm hoping for.
I'm hoping we can chop the core down a bit, or I may just get him another core to work wOriginally Posted by nubVR
Making some nice progress.Originally Posted by nubVR
bump it up.
did work today.
INDUCTION TEASER 7"Velocity Stack will be mounted in DS Headlight spot.
This will connect to the BBM airbox, pictured earlier in thread.
Mounted in headlight bracket, ready to go.
For Day use and Dyno/ shows only.
Making some more progress, any thoughts on the above?....Originally Posted by nubVR

In my case, my engine is just an 8v but the caps gave me more volume, nuff said.
Progress on the intake!!!
I think this is gonna give it the best flow we can possibly get!
Dude, Am I crazy? I really don't thing the front of the core area is short enough to clear your hood! I'm scared.... Anyway here's the plenum shape I'm gonna try and roll...... It's about our only option
It's gonna keep the air speed up, instead of coming out of the awic and falling on its face, like a velocity stack, how the bell sucks the air from around the lip? That radius is gonna pull the air torward the runners, With the flat lip it would have made a lot of turbulence
Back Half welded on, now we just have 1.8t IAT sensor provision, and vacuum ports to add, and if i'm lucky I can have Nub tap the TB flange, and bottom center of plenum for WAI ports.
The TT big valve kit really isn't going to do anything unless you have substantial headwork. I usually go with this combo: stock intake and +0.5 exhaust. Since you're going to be running boost, consider going with 1mm oversized on intake and 1.5mm on exhaust, IF you're going to do some valve job or port the head. If not, just go with a 0.5mm bigger exhaust. Really, there won't be that big of a difference over stock..
