      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.

      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.

      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.

      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?....

      I come to this thread always hoping for faster progress but I also understand the challenges in working remote with fabrication. Hopefully this works out for the best as Nub does some great work!

      Lack of funding and time is a problem as well.

      Working on my audi a6 and have ST coils going on soon.

      Nub I just sent you fifty bucks. Buy some beer.

      Freedom is a good thing, I take it you are referencing the plenum build right.

      I'm on it, lets see how the valve cover comes out first, i'm in no rush, thinking it may give us more flexibility.

I think what i need now, is a measurement based off the head, on where the TB needs to be placed to line up with your turbo, that way its a straight shot, then i can design the back part of the manifold based on that, and we can work forward to the Runners.

      This manifold is up for sale, taking serious offers.

      The ABA in my cabby has rod knock, so it is not driveable at the moment.

      The A6 needs a front clip swapped out, and left head replaced.

      I did not have colision on the A6.

      To make things worse, the car was impounded, searched, the girls had green related gear in my car I did not know about, and I got charges pending.

      I think I will hold off for now, and wait to see how everything plays out.

      I just really need money to get one of the cars fixed right now.

      Does anyone have any advice, or words of wisdom?
