That's what it is alright. The pic on the thread is even labeled with it. Previous poster just fails reading comprehension.

Thanx I can read actually, Just doesnt look like any intake Ive ever seen. Is that cloth sock looking thing the filter? And then where does it go after the support?

Yeah, it's the filter....







No, really, it's probably sound dampening material. The NC has a large airbox
and that's the snorkel for the fresh air.

Yeah when I looked at it I thought the horn end was the intake and that the filter was in a box later down the line. The cloth looking bits are for flex maybe? or muffling?

Looks like the stock snorkel outta an rx8, i'm guessing the NC is the same.

Thats a cool build, though I doubt I would have gone with the S/C OR used the RX-8 transmission.

edit: oops just saw Doppelgänger said the same thing :(

edit 2: eeeee I just saw he is using the Blitz S/Cer. Supposedly its the biggest piece of **** ever.

Really? I do that kind of **** day in and day out. It's not really that difficult (says the guy who has been doing it for 25+ years). Modern CAD packages do some amazing stuff these days. That basic Locost frame he posted would have been only a few hours work, less if he was really cranking on it. The sheet metal package is great: you draw the part in 3D, and then the computer folds it all out flat, calculating how much to allow for bends, and you send the flat pattern to be laser or waterjet cut. Anytime you need a hole, you select the type (tapped, clearance, etc.) and the location, and it zaps it in for you. A hell of a lot easier and faster than even just a few years ago.

I'd be willing to bet it took longer to take measurements than do draw the parts themselves.

So much awesome work.

I just dont understand why people must catalog their work on a forum, cant he just host a gallery somewhere that people can easily browse and read his progress.
