Got the new Intake mocked up. This is just a prototype still working out the kinks. Carbon Fiber intake tube.
nice... will u make a oversize intake box for us more trail ridin guys.I am looking into a more productive way of getting them together. When I get that straightened out yes I will be selling a kit. I may also offer a cheaper aluminum intake set up.
I will look into this. I have herd of using veins in the intake to help direct airflow. I will try a few different things and see what the dyno numbers will look like.nice... will u make a oversize intake box for us more trail ridin guys.
i was thinking what if u made the inner surface like gulf balls surface ik my friend has this intake kit on his civic and the inner surface is like that and he got 7 more hp over his older k&n intake tube. plus some team made a body kit for a honda fit that has the same surface and they got more mpg..... this is based on the face that the pited surface of a gulf ball a very aerodynamic:hey:
just a idea....
You have to keep in mind you need to be able to remove your mold from the finished piece. If you want to have just the look of carbon fiber you can just rap an existing piece.Being a newb I tried some google searches for how to's etc. Would PVC work as a good mold? Or maybe exhaust pipe so you could bend etc?
I used to do Energy Efficient Lighting for large companies like Toyota, Gap, CAT. I needed a change and did not enjoy the weeks out of town. It's been two months now with no work. I had saved some money and now I am using it to hit the composites business head on.so you used carbon cloth and resin? What did you use as a mold? Also you could build the box from carbon. expensive but light and very durable. What do you do for work yfz. do you work with composites??
