Time to go into business
I may have to take some pointers from this at some point and try this out. I'm impressed.
Nerds make the best stuffhaha, I would if the "labor" didnt make it cost prohibitive for someone to buy
I'm surprised how few examples there are of people trying to make something like this.. Although, it is a lot of work, and will be "out of sight, out of mind" when complete... maybe Im just a nerd.
I logged temps for the previous setup, where I was using the foglight for an intake and had very good results. Although now with the brake ducts in stalled, I had to find a different location for the intake air (unless I wanted hot engine bay air) so I resorted to the naca duct in the bottom of the bumper/splitter. I know its not ideal, but since I bought a big one (dual 3" inlets), I'm confident that is the source of the majority of my intake air...Have you logged intake temps before and after the naca in the underside? I had one in my fender before and it was helpful / functional but I've wondered about placing it in a splitter underneath like you've done. My limited research led me to believe that it wouldn't be ideal (in a splitter at least).
Ask and ye shall receive!Have you logged intake temps before and after the naca in the underside?
This pic isn't working, but I'd love to see what your setup looks like. Its got me thinking...Actually when I first got the original duct I did put it in the fog cover but it was an improper use of the naca so I wound up putting it in the fender. It was exactly like the aq Motorports race car. I just wanted a cleaner look and that's why I opted for the carbon. I'll likely just re use the stupid plastic one.. What to do with this $100 duct though.. Sigh.
Thats surprising... When I had the Evo 2, it was touching the B-pillar AND the center console, so there was nowhere for me to move the seat. BUT, this is also a function of my height (5'8"). If I were much shorter or much taller, I probably would've been able to clear the B-pillar. In any case, I'm glad you made it work :tup:Also, on an unrelated (and likely irrelevant, judging by your sig.) note; I noticed you had a sparco evo 2. I looked at your post about fitting it and felt your pain haha. I have them driver and passenger with planted base and side mounts. The driver is on a recaro slider while the passenger is fix mounted (as far back as possible with roll bar). Neither of them touch the b pillar but are close and I did have to overcome that hurdle.
It was just amusing to me and thought I'd let you know that it is possible with a lot of fighting and custom hardware lol.
