Just FYI, I just ran the tape measure over bits in the engine bay and it looks something like this in RHD form....



Red bit = Brake master cylinder and pipeage
Blue bit = Clutch master cylinder
Grey bit = Enginey stuff (measured from top of intake manifold face on head)

Make it fit dammit!

Travis, just curious what you plan for MAP/IAT mounting for both the FI IRTB and non FI IRTB setups? Didn't cross my mind til I looked at the renderings again.

I've got a vacuum box that will handle that and the MAP sensor routing. On the ITB cars there will be a barb plumbed into the bottom of each port, and on the non ITB cars it will more then likely be plumbed into the throttle body adapter plate, though I haven't drawn those adapter plates yet so we'll see.

We need to get to looking at it from an engine management perspective to as you can't run a MAP vs RPM table with ITBs. You have to run MAP X TPS vs RPM. The Adaptronic is capable, but I'm not sure about the MS, Hydra, AEM, Xede or anything else.

Sounds good, As long as the Adaptronic is capable that's what I was planning to run anyways. Everyone with other forms of engine management will have to chime in I guess

I'm subscribing to see if you offer 1.6 IRTB version (building a high-comp 1.7L all-motor engine).

Currently have the Fuji IRTBs and might be willing to make the change to these very nicely thought out ITB manifold/setups!

..... I got the NB intake cam gear designed... Does that count?

Seriously, I missed my price point, so i redesigned the flange, and we're in the process of another build. The carbon part didn't change, but its still under development.

This will be on my short list for sure. Would it be cheaper to use aluminum instead of the CF? I don't need CF bling necessarily.

CF actually makes it cheaper to get the perfect design for incredible flow numbers, and I got it figured out. We're back in the game on this. It was the flange that got expensive, the 4rth axis stuff can just kill your intended price if you are not careful.

Really, what has kept us from going forward on this is the cam gears and the ignition system. Once you see those get out of the way, this comes together really fast.

Bump for updates. Also, how big are the velocity stacks going to be?

If they were absolutely any bigger they would touch. I don't want to spill any more rendered pictures, only product! Which will be here soon.

If I made it in aluminum it would be 5-10 times as heavy, prone to cracking at the welds, and I couldn't hold the tolerence between production runs to .002 inches. You could also never get the same shape I made with aluminum. It would cost 1000's upon 1000's of dollars per a unit. You will be amazed when you see this thing. The clouds will split open, and angels will cry.
