Gawd dang....now THAT's what I call a full blown manifold. That intake should also be categorized as industrial as well.....maybe its time for a turbine? :lol:

Instead of creating a new topic I thought I would dig this old thread and update it.

I wanted a TTE like carbon airbox. Since my engine bay has alot of changes I knew this would be another custom job. I try to do things myself where I can so I started out with floral foam and began shaping the box.

Image

After some time I got the desired shape.

Image

Shaping the base was almost impossible as I wanted to mould into the inner guard and use the factory intake holes into the box.
I ended up fiber glassing the base seperately and fusing the two peices together.

Image

I have finished sanding down any imperfections and its ready for the carbon overlay.

Image

I would have liked the intake pipe and box to be one peice but found this would make it difficult to install/remove.
I would need to shift the unit to the left since the box goes into the guard. It will foul on the turbo so no go.

The box molds into the factory holes below which will feed the turbo.

Image

Relocation of the PS unit is done. I will get some pics up of that too.

Love the Weds wheels. Weds makes some special edition SA-70s for C-One which come in a GT-Four fitment of 17x8 +32. I've been dying to see someone rock these for a while now:

Anyway, awesome job so far!

Cheers lumbercis.
I know of a ST205 riding on the rims and offset you mentioned. It does look hot...... I would love to see how they look on a white ST185.

It does not rain often but I should make a cover just in case.
More worried about hitting a kangaroo....they can do serious damage.

Since its RHD Im not sure you will find my PS relocation any help. However, here are some pics of what was done. For LHD, a longer high pressure line would be needed to run from the pump to the rack (blue hose). Running a cooler on a LHD would require looping lines but everything else should be easy as you dont have the brake booster to contend with when mounting the reservoir. Make sure the lines are accessable so you can undo them if you need to drop the engine.

First layer of resin is on just waiting a bit for it to dry before applying the second.

Cheers.... I dont think I have it in me for another.

Second coat of resin is done. The box fits nicely so pretty happy overall.
Next step is sanding :doh: and applying the U.V. protective clear coats. I will cut down my original ally pipe and use it for the new intake setup.
