    Thread: NUBWORKS ABA LRI Intermanicooler AWIC build.

    Hybrid View

    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

Have a good thanksgiving man

      great news, thanks for the update.



      Used a 3/8"plate this time, and bigger welds! Gonna try and get it drilled out today

      Thinking of doing something similar

      Any thoughts

      Holy hell the build/weld qaulity is top notch, you sir are an amazing welder/fabricator

      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.

      Made some real progress last night on the boost plumbing, still need my intake manifold for final mockup.

      Looks awesome so far

      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

      in this picture, you will not be able to run the vac ports and IAT where you have them, they would be in the core itself and not the plenum. need to roll them on down to the plenum proper.

      Looks like a good application for laminova cores.

      Too costly, unless you have a hook up somewhere.

      First pic, just for size compare and layout, there is about 1/2" i can go down

      angled a little... notice where still really high! Measurment is from bottom of the head, it is also sitting flat on the table, not at angle like the block
      I'm hoping we can chop the core down a bit, or I may just get him another core to work with.

      Which core do you think would be best for this application?

      oh ya. and for hillbilly fabworkers like us, we seem to do alright in the guessing game.

      and it is really a true statement that its hard to build to fit if the car isnt there.

      Found some domed end caps for the plenum...

      Orderd 4 of these caps today and 2 plates for under 40 bucks, a steal in my books considering all other sources had a $100.00 order minimum.

      I'm curious why'd you decided on using round plenum end caps?

      I don't see them doing anything benifital. You're not going to be pushing the limits of flat stock on that little area. If you're worried about surface restriction, upper and lower plenum walls are closer than the side plates, and volume increase is almost nill, you have all the space in the ic, as well as before the ic to draw from.

      I think its just overcomplicating things.

      wrong train of thought. you got a 3" cap, which is 3" in DIAMETER.

      you would need something at least 6" DIAMETER, which would be a 3" radius.

      you need to cut the dome in half to even come close to using it there, ths it would need to be bigger. plus, the sides are larger yet, no?

      i havent been by to see it in person in awhile, but i dont see 3" dome doing anything there.
