Prince GTB Carbon Fibre Airbox - expressions of interest
Posted 13 April 2011 - 12:44 PM
I went and met Freddy from Topstage Composits today and got a price on reproducing my Prince GTB airbox in carbon fibre. (BTW his work is first class!)
The price on a repro airbox in 100% carbon fibre will be $450 ex gst if I can get a minimum of 10 (ten) firm orders (this is my break even price).
Once I get 10 orders I will then request a 50% deposit to cover materials and initial labour (CF is exy at $85 per sq/m) , I will then remove the induction system from my Zed and get Freddy to start work on the mould. (Allow four weeks to manufacture mould and 10 x air boxes)
The airbox will be supplied with a blank rear panel to be hole cut as required so it can be fitted to most triple carb applications
(Ram tubes and 90 deg elbow not included in price)
The benifit is that this airbox is dyno proven, slim line and allows for crank case and rocker cover venting to be connected (EPA friendly)

I notice the MJP airbox comes in a mesh pattern glass mat which looks similar to carbon, I wonder if the topstage one will be the same?

where would you get the elbow pipe attached to the box shown in the picture?

still not enough committed interest to warrant making the mould
90 deg elbows in various sizes can be sourced from auto and truck supply specialists.........there is a local supplier here in Melbourne where I found the silicon 80 to 65mm reducer
