      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?

      I may just source you a thinner core, and sell that one off, if its too much extra work.
      I saw one on silicone intakes that was 3.5" not 4.5. Hp rating is down though...... No cant make thinner, I can't modify core at all! I might be able to sell this one I have another guy that was interested ill send him a message if u want
      Try and sell it off if you can.

      How about sourcing a bell AWIC core and building off of that.

      Let me take measurements tonight with pics for you and we will get the perfect one..... I'll have to make the water tanks too, bit of work involved just so u know, but it's gonna look 10 times better then the first way we were going
      Sell off the first AWIC, and the funds are yours to work on the extra fab work.
      Thats exactly what I was gonna
      Say... Nice

      If that's a type 8 or type 4 from frozenboost and uncut, I will take it off your hands. Just have justin throw it on my pile and add it to my tab.

    8. 01-17-2012 04:47 PM #33
      I believe its a type 4.

      I'll have justin hook you up.

      Ok...... we want
      A=6"
      B=2.90"
      C= 12"

      $156.00
      A600029120


      Double check that flow diagram, and you'll see why its what i posted

      We can go to the 3.10 thick, and gain 50 more cubic feet of air, but id rather have the hood clearance! Im guessing you would too.

      [QUOTE=USRT]US Rally Team Hahaha, credit goes to Justin and other USRT gangstas, too. So, when is this beast going to be finished, Dr. Ivey? The flow dynamics of an IC core just before the plenum have got us scratching our heads. None of the conventional formulas we use here "work" with the IC so close. It's fun to be a "n00b" again and watch with no specific expectations.

      Why dont you weld 90º elbows onto the turbo? then you wont have to use the couplers.

      I always like the BBM intercooler manifold. Pretty slick design, too bad they only ever made 1 or 2.

    12. 01-23-2012 11:27 AM #37
      With the exhaust manifold flipped, I wont need an elbow.

      If i end up needing a 90 bend, Ill have a elbow with vband outlet on.

      Silicone is for mockup, and initial install only.

      Joshua,

      we have (2) Options to offer in the Range you and your Fabricator have indicated:

      - P/N AW600029120, A= 6.0”, B= 2.9”, C= 12.0”
      or
      - P/N AW600029085, A= 6.0”, B= 2.9”, C= 8.5”

      BTW, the Core’s B-Dim. on the Photos looks larger than 2.9” !?!

      If you provide the max. Engine-HP and the Boost-Pressure, at that HP, we can recommend which of the (2) Cores is the preferred Option.

      to me
      The Bell-Mouth Velocity Stacks after the Intercooler work very well; we have produced several Intercoolers with this Design.
      An “Air-Guide” (Baffle) on the Inlet-Side to the Intercooler, attempting to equal the Flow-Distribution, will help, as well.

      Nice build. Just want to mention not to forget to clock your CHRA (turbo center section) so the drain is pointing down. Looking forward to seeing this completed.

      I thought I had it clocked, oh well, i'll definitely take another look and fix that.

      thats the first problem, shouldnt be a big deal, next decision, do you want the core, close to the plenum, or with a couple inches back? Sorry for crappy pics, tranny and oil are all over my work bench, i didnt wanna get the manifold stuff all dirty!
      core is very nice BTW as it should be for the price!
      Making some nice progress.

      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.

      yeah I figured there would be some details to sort out, where would you suggest placing them, there were added as an afterthought to the initial drawing, just so I had them on there and we would make provisions for use.

      Will revise, and do research before final placement.

      i would put them all on the plenum proper. that way the IAT is getting the proper reading. most IAT are right after the TB, but that is in a system designed with the A2W BEFORE the TB.

      but that is me.....

      You are the man Justin, I will leave it in your capable hands.

      As for your last question, lets put about an inch between the core and the plenum.

      Also, water ports, do you want both on one side? or One on each side? Something is telling me both on the driverside might be best..... but not sure where your htinkin about setting all your stuff up. Let me know... im not doin anything else till we get a plan.

      Oh and valve cover.... i dont think we mess with it, i think the way its gonna be shaped it should keep air speed up for the pressure drop its gonna see when it opens up... and the velocity for it hitting those cooling fins? This is all just dumb guy garage theory though
      Making some more progress, any thoughts on the above?....
