Pics of the plumbing from resevoir to hardlines tomorrow.
Not pretty but it will work, a tip for any mark one owners, along the pinch weld on the rockers are two or more slots, that a standard U- bracket will fit into perfectly.
This allows you to only drill one hole per bracket instead of two two mount the bracket that holds the hardlines to the backside of the rocker.
The hardlines can be had in 8 foot sections @ Home Depot for 6.00 a line.
Will run braided PVC tubing from McMaster Carr for the rest of the plumbing!.
yea, agreed. should go to the top.

I am not a dumbass, a better question is where should I have Nub tap the Valve cover for the top feed to the can?
Yep I will clock the CHRA, so it will drain right.
Also, switched everything around, turbo will be bottom mounted, as it helps clear the firewall and puts the compressor outlet in the middle of the valve cover to eliminate any bends.
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
Are you going to be able to get to all of the intake manifold bolts to install this thing?
Also, I'm curious why you guys welded on that extra plate (with the 180* bend) from the bottom of the intercooler core to the top of the velocity stacks.
Otherwise, nice work

That last picture you posted is great. It actually shows that the cross sectional area of the diffuser decreases up until the end of that extra wall (~2 o'clock in the picture), so you're going to accelerate the flow up to that point and take lots of pressure loss around that turn.
Here is a general comment that's not directed at anyone in particular, but something that I continually see on internet forums: People with absolutely no fluid mechanics background are willing to speculate (and with absolute certainty!) how air will flow in and around objects. In comparison, I work with people with aerodynamics based Phds and 20 years of experience who are less willing to speculate about fluid flow. In reality it's just a very complex, non-linear phenomenon and it's generally non-intuitive...
Most of this build is takin place at my work...... Nubworks is all torn apart right now and I have no power yet! Hense no beers in the pictures, sorry to disappoint!
It's Friday...... No work, Let's have some beers tonight
