Good job JJ! I don't know how many times I've played the vid of the startup for friends and wished mine sounded like that. Someday, someday...

Looking forward to seeing it on my next trip north.

Made to work with the 6 individual throttle-bodies that reside underneath - they are custom made - shaped by hand - from aluminium...

Any way, some of us have seen the shots of this car before, but just for grins - here it is again - a European 75 with a GTV6 hood-bulge integrated in to it and what appears to be an open mesh area where the GTV6 tea-tray used to reside.

I think he meant the pipes from the runners to the air filters

Dryer hose... Ha-ha -

Nope - these are specific aluminium flex-tubes that I got from Greg Gordon for the job! You can actually run boost through them!

Hang on a minute - Is that carbon fibre being used as the plastic trim along the side of the red car?

Removing or fitting a larger AFM from a BMW would be more beneficial. It's the biggest bottleneck in the system.

I'll likely go clear corners eventually - for now I am fighting the pedal-box conversion and focused on getting the brake-lines in so that I can go and drive this thing...!

I wouldn't do the dryer hose thing - will look like shei-it if you ask me and I don't know what the insulating factor is - may make it worse...! BTW - Greg's coned-filter is MUCH better than the run of the mill K&Ns, or K&N knock-offs out there...

IF anything - Greg's tubes look better and work well, but even then - question the gains from just doing those with a K&N style filter, when you still have the restriction of the AFM up-stream - and not to mention - an in-ability to capitalize on any additional air (no way to control fuel...)

I know Greg won't agree with me on this one, but either find a way to get rid of the restrictive AFM (after-market engine-management system like we did), or at the very least a larger BMW-type BOSCH AFM - the restriction is upstream - not in the airbox.

I get this question a GREAT DEAL; "open intakes" - larger intakes - K&N filters etc - think of it this way - really you should start with the mechanical unit and work forward - not the other way around! If there is not an increased ability to process more air then it is useless! Even forcing it in, if you are not going to increase fuel-supply, you're pissin' in the wind and even then, you need to cool it, process it, get it out faster etc. (The air, not the piss... )

Once you have increased the mechanical unit's ability to process more air/fuel mixture (bigger displacement, higher compression, more cam, higher-flowing heads, free headers etc - then additional airflow in, makes sense...

Heat-shielding works either way.

The shop had a GTV6 in for motor R&R and I guess that they needed to lay the hood somewhere - PHOTO-OPP!!!

I think that it's going to look very sharp in a clear-coat CF finish, with the GTV6 bulge and stainless-mesh where the black plastic tea-tray used to be, the trunk in a clear-coat CF finish as well and then the rest of the car in "Ducati Dark" - that flat matte charcoal black with a very slight "spec" in it and no gloss...

The dry areas of this faded GTV6 hood is almost it...

Any way - seems like the CF hood/trunk/custom fender and rear wheel-arch projects are about to be back on track again - I'll keep you guys posted!

Any way, installed the new NRG version 2.5 quick-release - looks good. Nice piece - it has the lip to pull on to release and the wheel only goes back on one way so it is always correct - unlike other cheap quick-releases where the wheel will actually click on upside down!

I had the standard Milano "hub" on there before, then the RSR extender and then the quick release, but it proved to be TOO much extension! I had to drop something and out went the black Alfa hub-thing - so now it's just the RSR extension serving as the hub and then the NRG quick release (essentially doubles as an extender) and then my Personal steering wheel.

Also, Sparco faux-CF shift-knob from the Verde - some new leather knob that I bought looked better in the street car any way and the CF-ricer piece will go nice with all of the other more trick items on the race car.

One more - the custom Magnecor wires that we had them make for us (as seen here on Jes' 3.7.) - Specific lengths, specific connectors, sealing plug-heads etc.

They have the "pin-type" connectors on the coil side to go with the Alfa 155 coil-packs that have these little exact-fit pins inside there - rather than the normal brass "ring-type" connections of many other coil-packs. It also has the relieves cut in to the plug-heads so that they will lay down underneath the plenums!

With lots of measuring back and forth - not only did we get the right length plug-heads, but they also sourced the correct diameter units for us that now seal at the valve-covers!
