Are you going to be using the holes that the stock intake used out of the engine bay at the fender? I had planned on doing that myself. Id like to sign up for one of these if I could :)

Custom head shield/ box for straight turbo intake

I would to mod this all to work with the stock setup. Just been trying to get the car up to par but I should really start working on this again since my
Last update lol!

Maybe since I have some fair interest I should try and hurry this up a little. Especially since its summer now.


I did try an shape the side to fit the area better but this will be for relocated battery setups tho. Cuz right now that is what I have. Sorry it's that an inconvenience.

Maybe we should start a list as to who gets the free parts and shipped anywhere in Canada at my cost. Even tho it'll sadly take sometime to finish this but it will happen. I want it to fit with little to no modding. Might need to bend a bracket or 2 to make it fit flat... But it'll happen lol. Slow going project!!

Well kind of good news for you guys haha

I was laid off yesterday from my welding job so ill have tons of time to make these parts :) just need to make my way to my parents place to use there tools now. Hoping to have an update by sunday but i will by next weekend as far as progress goes.

Opinions please guys....
-make it 4 sides? so just try and fit the side to curve with the area and the fender hole side open? or make it practically an enclosed box except for the stock fender intake hole side. ? ( if it doesnt matter then we will see how well things go from now on and how usefull it will be to have the bottom or not)

-make the maf attatched to the box is what i was thinking. sadly wont have access to a tig now but once i have the pieces ill find a shop to do it or i can just send it over unassembled and have it like a small half done diy thing haha



oh and list yourselves who have claimed 1 of the 5 kits

2. Boo_Guy
3. Underscore
4. Caconman424
5.

Sorry to hear about the layoff. Hopefully you'll find another job before EI runs out, might end up being a nice little vacation just as the weather is warming up though. :D


I like the idea of 4 sides, being completely closed off from the rest of the engine bay. But 3 would seem simpler to do and less materials needed.

Were you thinking of attaching the maf inside or outside the box? Would be nice to be able to hide that ugly looking thing inside. :P

Here is a setup I did for my better half's car a while back. Perhaps it can give you some inspiration.

That's a gnarly intake design ! Definitely looks well done as well.

Thanks! It works very well and I've had plenty of time to test this system and make some tweaks. If you need someone to bounce ideas off of, I'd be happy to lend an ear! I really soak this stuff up and have seen many different setups over the years. Several of my own design even:

Well so far I've got the layout pretty figured out. Might need a friend or have to send my parts to have them tiged up but otherwise it's going slowly.

Made the side wall today and I'll post pics of it when I get to a computer. Would have finished with the cover but my buddies di-grinder cutting disc sucks! Takes forever to cut this material. I feel this is a good step forward. Might do more tomorrow depending how me and my friend are feeling.

Oh and temporarily turned my hood vents on the drivers side to scoop air instead of pulling air to push more towards the finger in the bay. :) thought it was a good idea :)
