    Thread: NUBWORKS ABA LRI Intermanicooler AWIC build.

    1. 12-23-2011 10:06 AM #1
      Take a good look at the LRI, I am having fabricated. Long runners similar to the USRT unit I could not afford. This should really wake up my Built ABA w/ 270 cam, and sealed airbox with cold air feed and velocity inlet in the lower grille.

      original thread.

      I cannot wait till this is finished.

      Also going on this motor, is a polished G60 Valve cover, t3/t4 .50 cold side. .63 hot side. and LRI dual plenum manifold w/ integrated AWIC with icebox and Bosch cobra Pump.

      Will be using C2's 42lb. fueling kit.






      I cannot take credit for the fabrication.

      Should have the manifold installed by December.

But you can see the stacking in the pictures, and the last pic with the new bit... gonna try and port tomorrow night

      Any thoughts

      i think you want this one..... then i can either cut both sides off, or we can even use the one side if you wanted.... i think i would rather cut both off and make everything, but thats up to you.... let me throw a tape up with the manifold so you can see how long it is.

      I was over at nubs not too long ago and saw the manifold looks great

      I have some ideas as well.

      Me thinks that we need to first take about 1.25 inches out of the runners length at the bottom of the runners near the intake flange.

      Its a step back to make future progress much easier, fitment wise.

      Then build it similar to this picture below, maybe a small D shaped plenum connected to another plenum like the one on the first ABA manifold you built with the core inside.

      No critiques?

      Eventually I want all the boost plumbing to be vbanded and without the silcone couplers and tbolt clamps.

      My only concern would be clearance off the frame rails?? Looks like its about of the exact level.

      I thought about dumping the wastegate out the hood, I will swap the manifold over the right way.

      I just need another silcione conncector, the instake plumbing does not fit quite right without the manifold flipped.

      Just a rough sketch, but thats the idea I'm hoping for.

      Your pretty damn good at drawing too, but that looks like a smart setup...should fit without any clearance issues with the hood as long as its on a tight angle like you sketched

    24. 01-16-2012 11:34 AM #25
      Thats the thing, I did not take angle measurements, and the scale is slightly off.
