    Thread: NUBWORKS ABA LRI Intermanicooler AWIC build

    1. 12-23-2011 10:01 PM #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.
      http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthrea...7#post74435917














      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.

      great news, thanks for the update.

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

      Thanks guys, my built aba with scat rods and ross pistons is making either rod knock or piston slap noises so I'm gonna have to rebuild or swap in a new bottom end before I boost it.

      I have a spare motor on a stand and am gabbing the down pipe for my mk1 as well.

      If anyone wants to do some good reading check out Bentley publishers maximum boost by corky bell of bell inter coolers.

      PLEASE TAKE the time to vote for me.



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

      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

      We will end up running a bell core, and selling off the core pictured up.

      This is just the type of manifold I wanted to build, but I wanted ITB's as well.


      ROUGH draft.

      ITBs would be killer.

      Bit much though.

      and then hook up the ac somehow to cool the IC

    14. 01-21-2012 08:03 PM #14
      Enough Ice in the 2.6 gallon resevoir, a good pump, and maybe a little CO2, and the core will be sufficiently cool.

      The CO2 spray would only be for making "a one shot cooler?, where The intake charge*is cooled so much it is actually below ambient temperature before entering the plenum.

      It might be liquid nitrogen, the drag guys use i'm not sure but basically you can in theory make an AWIC more than 100 percent efecient and actually lower temps below Ambient IAT...

      I did in my daily (check my build) about a week ago, with no ice in the reservoir I came a couple degree's down below ambient air temps.

      Then just imagine what ice in the tank could do.

      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.

      I mocked up my Kinetic manifold like that and the turbo compressor hit the firewall.
      That was on a MK3.

      Was it the firewall or the raintray it hit?

      Might have to bust out a hammer and a dremel.

      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.

      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?....

      Firewall for sure. I ended going with a SPA manifold so that I could keep the compressor pointed at the driver's side.

      Pics? I'm not that good at interweb yet. Here is a link to my build: http://www.dubsnorth.org/forum/viewt...11068&start=30

      Only one OK pic of the turbo manifold setup on page 3.

      I like that manifold your building.
