Hi Chris. I saw a nice 8 butterfly cross ram tube intake set up to suit LS engine at a swap meet on the Gold Coast. New $1200. Thought of your car.
With the current manifold you have and with a bit of work and the turkey pan style airfilter.Connect a stainless 180 degree pipe to the throttle body and direct back over the engine into the turkey pan. Flat panel filter in pan, raised at the front and low a the back. Maybe you could cut a vent grill panel just under windscreen between the wipers. Similar to the MK 1 Ford Escort etc. Connect the back edge of the turkey pan to that. The early Supercar airboxes had like a door seal on the top edge of the sides of the pan used the bonnet as the top to seal out the hot under bonnet air.
Hope that all makes sense to you. lol

hi Bender... time and money permitting sounds awesome... Either a blower or an 8 stack is the go for sure.. I reckon the later looks just awesome. $1200 is half or less retail.. a nice pick up for someone for sure.

Had the car at the sparkie and then the tuner which took 10 weeks overall for them to complete... has put my build a long way behind schedule for this years Nats unfortunately.

Had cut a hole in the back of the bonnet bulge to feed Mk1 of the induction system, but then patched it. Have the car back now, am looking at all of the options to see which way would work out best with the current intake.

Cheers

Chris

Hi Chris, Yeah the intake I thought was a good buy. If it had been for a windsor. I would have been less $1200. lol. It was still there at the end of the day so it might pop up at the next swap meet.
I have seen chat on some other forums where the guys rotate the intake manifold on the LS engines. Front to back. There is one forum called lamboclone that has a bit of chit chat about it.
Not sure how much room you have at the back of the engine. May fit in with what you are trying to do or open up some new ideas.

Thanks Bender... I have valves, wiring and heating tubes and have built out the firewall to create space inside the cabin (moved the AC evap ahead of the windscreen line, so its not really an option just at the moment...

Has been a while, but now the site seems to have been upgraded will give posting a go.

Doors, with commodore locks fitted with template perspex panels and working power windows, skins fitted, just waiting on the door belt line seals to progress these further. Central locking also installed, with a remote and external keyed door locks.

Induction system done, paint for the cheek brackets (VHT) is curing, waiting on some more 4mm x 8mm mesh to finish the hood opening.

Front wheel arches trimmed and coated with bed liner, hood fitted, hood rollers fab'd and installed, front grille completed and ready for fit post paint.

Electrics completed and ready for plug in of a few internal lights once the trim is done. Dyno tuned with the Crow Cam fitted.. around 315kw at the rears.. which is in line with expectations, at a slightly higher red line given the valve and timing gear upgrades.

Need to knock off the heat shielding on the underside of the cabin then fix the fuel lines, dynamat the seat portion of the cabin and figure out how to seal the gap between the 1/4 windows and the door frames, which has been created due to the geometry required for the power windows. Most of the cabin sheet metal has been cut and folded, just needs to be fitted.

Aside from that it still feels like its a bit of a way to go.. have a trimmer lined up for early next year which will no doubt take it through to March before it returns.. then its body and paint... although I really don't think I have the eye, the tools or the skills to prep, let alone finish a rather irregular body properly.

Also made up a splitter with foam board, glassed and trimmed, ready for high fill and a rub down.

Installed a set of QA1 double adjustable shocks, front and rear. Inverted the front pair, needed to relocate the lower bracket for the rears from under the A arm as pictured. Managed to maintain the original spring length all round with just a little grinding of the upper bracket weld on the NS.
