I just read all 14 pages of this but it's kind of like the girl's parents just came home and interrupted the finale! Now I've got carbon fiber blue *****! I can't wait to see what this looks like all together and what the scale says. Driving impressions on the aero will be interesting too!

I have mounted the I/C and am about to mold the shroud for it on the hood.



Once that is done i can do the rest of the turbo pipe work. And obviously make the outlet in the bonnet behind the I/C. Soon the engine will be all together and it will be on the engine dyno. Just chasing a few things.

I think the implication was referring to your ***** size.

I'm assuming it's made to pull air from engine bay through IC, not push into.

That picture is taken from the front bumper looking back, isn't it? Most people have the vent opening the other way if that's the case.

The air will be ducted to the i/c from the front and come out the hood opening. The shroud you see in the pic is to create a negative pressure above the i/c (helps the air flow thru faster). The radiator will have a seperate duct and it is layed back on an angle to allow a "v" mount setup. It works so well when i did it on my old car it ran so cold i had to tape up 1/3 of the radiator when i first went out. - (it was a cold day, and no thermostat).

old age getting to you Curly?


Are you suggesting an extractor hood is not the way "most people" have it?

I think I see what he's saying, corn flakes just looks like it's covering the IC and not how ducting will be setup.

Maybe the front lip is throwing off my interpratation of aerodynamics, but isn't the corn flake flap supposed to be angled downwards, towards the front lower edge of the car?

If "|" is the radiator, it should be like this: \| instead of the apparent /|

And by "should" I mean "from how I understand it"

Yeah I'm kinda with Curly on this one. It is an unusual setup but that doesn't make it "wrong" the raised section up front may cause a large enough low pressure area that it might pull air from the exhaust manifold area as well as pulling air from the radiator. **waits on design intent explanation**

Is the cut-out supposed to be way off center?

See the front looks right in the corn flake picture, but it's like all the vents behind it are rotated backwards. I'm really sorry to go off topic, and I'm not doubting you have a master plan, but I'm just a little confused.
