Just thought i would put a couple more photos of the finished air box. Did it Metallic Red and got some Black Hex key bolts to tidy it up.

I notice there is some 10mm odd holes in the aluminum backing plate Scoota. Are these a mistake? Do they let un-filtered air into the air box? Or do they allow access to adjustments screws on the carbies?

Looks special by the way.


Those holes are also on the carb body and from memory are just an atmospheric vent. Its not recommended to block them off.

Kinda diggin up a year old thread but i modified the Cold Air Box. The filler cap, logo, and the other stuff have been smoothed. Next one (seeing this was the Prototype) will be the other way around so all the lumps are on the bottom.

Hey scoota looking great!! Are you building these to sell? If so I'm interested... providing it won't hit my strut tower, what is the overall thickness?

What i had in mind is to fabricate the next one and then make a fibreglass mould of it but i think it wouldn't be worth it as RB30 rocker covers are cheap and plentiful.
The distance would depend on what manifold you use but a Ebay one i listed earlier in this thread has less clearence than mine. As a real time guide i can fit my knuckles in between the intake and the strut tower.. .. .. this clearence would expand when the air box is turned around.
Once i do the next one i'll post some pics and see what people think (should have a lot cleaner appearance).

I have a custom manifold and blackbird carbs so I will measure the distance. Keep us posted  :)

Nice intake...would never thought of that use!

Just a quickie, probably best to move to another topic but....Cold Air intakes and SU's (so diff setup to yours), I didn't think they worked particularly well under pressure? (seem to recall reading somewhere that with SU's forcing the air in can be counter productive...but I am no expert.)

The fibreglass mould is an interesting idea.

Huw, If you run ducting from airbox through rad support then use a 90deg bend and a pod filter. That way you shouldn't get force fed air into box when you're driving. Also with less turbulence around trumpets.

Hey Scoota,

Now that looks the goods Buddy ! much more original looking, well done.

Are you planning on doing anything with the color of it as in re-apply or maybe polishing the housing to an alloy finish?

Cheers

John

Hey john thanks, The problem with the cover is it can't be welded easily and has all the holes on the front so polishing wouldn't really work. Going to stick with a color but not sure what yet!

The inside grinding makes it 1 kilo lighter

Scoota,

Just an idea, but have you ever considered making a mould and doing it in CF?

Have you dyno'd your manifold to see it if helps or hinders performance ?

The next two steps on the car is to service the Auto (friday) and then after Threadbo i'm going to book it in for a dyno session.

Perhaps understate it in a Satin or Matt Black!

Well that's done then. I should have done it this way to start with but i think the principal of custom design is in the practical application and not the theory.

You can't see the bumps now and it doesn't even look like a rocker cover now.
