I'll see what I can do but yeah, the turbo is below the vent. I may not work tomorrow and reinstall the turbo. The base map looks pretty good this time. BTW, if you are reading this, buy one of these KL's. It's seriously fun and adequately quick NA. Churps second tehehehe. Great midrange, no top end though. Like a BP, but 25% more. It sounds great reving it, but it doesn't go anywhere. Much better to short shift it (at 7k ). I recorded my ride home from work last night and will stitch worthwhile sections into a viewable video shortly. Garbles and pops on decel are glorious without the turbo. I hope they come thru on the video.
But yeah, the heat waves thru the vent...not the car to drive in stop & go traffic if you're hungover.
Coolant temps on the highway have dropped another 6-7 °F. I'm now kissing upper 180's (avg 192) at 75+mph. Back roads/stop & go i'm at the usual upper 190's. I was around 210+ this time last year before sealing the radiator inlet and adding the oil cooler.
Thanks guys. I wanted to be able to fit as long a runner as I could while clearing the hood and cam sprocket towers. Yeah, to try to get more low end torque. I have a rougher dual plenum design with two butterflies like the factory intake too, but that will be too complicated for now. Instead I will try to make this with the longer runners, and I could make some shorter trumpets as well to try.
I'm trying to decide if I want transparent panels, necessitating a flat top to the plenum, or make the top all curvey/3-D but not able to see the insides.
Option 1 would also let me see how much oil is getting inside the intake...After 3000 miles put on this past summer, there was a surprising amount of oil in the intake manifold when I removed it. Hopefully it was the full oil catchcan.
Quickie top modeled during lunch, still tweaking it:
