Airbox mods Part 3

Mounted up a 76mm flange with the help of an auto gearbox mount spacer and 5/16" bolt

Added a cold air shroud made with the help of a bit a cardboard template practice

Looks good - hope it works. Next trial may be an all alloy inlet plenum of 100mm with TIG welded trumpets and possibly injector mounts outboard of butterflys - It will need to be flameproof !!!

Airbox mods Part 2

Knocked this up this afternoon - 3 inch pipe and trunking to feed extra air to the rear of the plenum. No way that the PI will be starved of air now. Even managed to declog my nozzle on the VHT crackle black for the correct Stanpart look.

Just need to mount up an extra filter now.
