last few...

the side is just an inch or so to high so the top sits crooked. It took forever to cut the side out cuz my buddy didnt have a power grinder and only a di-grinder so the soft material just doesnt cut as fast as steel lol.

Next and hopefully this week ill have the top cut. Ime beginning to see i may and may not have enough material for this so if i run out then ill have the dimensions made up and leave it to anyone to make themselves. Maybe if interest is there we can the this design and make a CF one by making a mold.

Plans plans, Ideas ideas.... they never end!

Custom head shield/ box for straight turbo intake

Told you guys ideas just never end haha

I'm thinking of taking this to another level. After seeing the arc tmic I got the idea to make a fender box with a 2.5 or 3" pipe for you to route the rest where you want. The idea would be to make a3 sided box and cut the pipe at something like a 45 or more to have more focus on the pipe to have a better cold air suction. That's the idea.

Also cut the top plate to fit now and it's lookin good :)

Also this pic is just a half-ass lay of what it's gonna look like. The maf will be on the outside of the box just so we don't have to extend the maf wires.

Also I may have to charge for these. I'm running out of material but we will see how things go as I'm not working right now so hard to put the money into this. Time I can but money is the problem.

That top panel reminds me of the ones they make for the 205 to hide the junk on the left side of those engine bays.

You could make up one for the 185s :)

Haha that does basically look like mine except mine isn't chrome. I like the aluminum finish on mine. Sadly can't seem to find anyone to tig my box anymore since I lost my job so it's on hold :'(

Found someone to my tig welding :) meeting with him Friday and might have the box welded and on the right track to being finished.

Gonna talk to him about the costs and such. If it turns out I have to say free won't be in the picture just because my material is almost used. Made some parts for my buddies miata.

When this is done I'll update and get quotes
