All that CF with a "matte" clear will look great

Also, how wide is that Nathan, at first glance it seems a little restrictive as the filter element seems like it would have almost no gap between it and the back of the intake, but maybe its just that big that there is more space in there to flow, even if it is a thin gap. As well as probably being a huge filter if I am just not getting the scale right in my head seeing it off the car.

It's approx 18 by 6 inches. These are the same intakes being used on all out race cars in NZ. If it weren't for the radiator cap, it might fit a stock Camaro.

Just ordered a P-AYR LS Plastic engine as we are going to need to mock up where the engine is going to sit in relation to the intake. This will give us a better idea of where to cut.

You get a better deal by ordering the long block than each separately. It's $425 for the long block plus shipping as compared to the block for $300 and the heads for $175. Somebody will be getting a deal when we are done with the plastic engine, LOL.

+1 for the matte carbon fiber - or maybe even a satin finish?

Looks awesome, was it a private seller or an online store? Still want them, but not ready to drop $750 on them.

It was Katech themselves, they had some valve covers brand new never put on a car that had a hole for the coil relocation that was not right. Got them half off! I already did my own relocation so I did not need their bracket.

Dude, where did your fuse box go? I want to do this, but have not go all the details figured out yet. Probably going to do this over the winter when the weather outside sucks.

i took pics and was gonna do a write up . but left my camera on the ground and my husky picked it up and took it off i still havent found the camera. its a decent job tho to move it . i put mine in the cabin filter box in the cowl. just have to extend the wires without taking out the engine . some say u can do it without extending with engine in . but i worked 8 hours and couldnt get in even close so i extended about 30 wires around 15 inches.

another awesome looking engine bay. relocating the fuse box really cleans up the engine bay alot.

GOOD WORK FELLOW ADDICTS!

My apologies for not keeping you guys updated very much lately. We've been very busy, both taking summer classes and sending out our applications this fall. we did get quite a bit done this weekend though. Seth has joined the crew and has been a huge help. Nathan and I have been passing all the grunt work down to him, LOL. he has been hard at work scotch briting the whole undercarriage to prep it for paint. We also worked together removing alot of metal in the trunk area to make room for the dry sump tank and the battery. no pictures on that right now, will come later.

Nathan and I have been working on getting the engine bay finished as far as cutting and welding goes. We had to cut into the core support to make room for the X-Air intake.

We have also been working on the firewall. Here's the cardboard template. Both sides are symmetrical so both firewall panels will be the same.

Work ahead of us consists of cutting the steel firewall panel, welding it to the firewall, on both sides, grinding and smoothing the welds and skim coating for a completely flat look on the firewall. Stay tuned for more updates on engine bay progress....
