A lot of inspirations in this thread! Nice job man

I'm currently fighting with the same kind of POD you made. But rather ashtray I'm using the original panel with a cigarette lighter, want to put the pod a little bit "inside" it, using the factory mounting points (those 2 screws)
When I'm done - I'll post a picture, so I can sign it "idea stolen from Chilm" :-)


Greetings from Haarlem!

Hello messer, I think there is no room for that, that's why i did it the way i did it
At first I also thought tu use that plastic box as a "holder" for it, but no way the gauges are going to fit, just my thoughts, but... if you dont't try you'll never know so keep yourself posted here.

I already destroyed this holder, so it needs to fit in there! ;) A lot of drilling, fabricating and in the end it will look probably worse than your job, but oh well. I'm half way done and so far it looks promising...

Default PCV TB way

I'm gonna do a "Yoshifab" PCV the TB way using an old PCV and some sawing, sanding and elbow grease, like being "the human lathe"







Epoxy is your friend again.







Hard labour with the grinder and cutting wheel.





Looking good to me,

@moise: thank you.

Everything is coming together now:





I collected a hydraulic oil pump housing from a waste tank when I was hording around.
That would come in handy i thought so voila, my future catch can.





In fact the only thing I have to do is making some holes and a bracket, dead simple.





Horder as I am I found this motorbike thingie in my magic shed.



Victor Reinz chiming in too





Aaaand almost ready.



To be continued, tomorrow is another day.

Only issue I see is the louvers are pointing the wrong way. At speed, that will be making the area a low pressure area and trying to suck air away from the Airbox.
They need to face forward to "scoop" air into it.

Nice to see where the inlet sits in fact...



Preparing the airduct (cheap from ebay Ford Cosworth hood scoops).
You are looking at the back side/inner side.



I had some gauze from a music box laying around which I cutted and sprayed.
Did some bending too so it sits nice and tight. Automotive tape and Voila...



Sprayed the duct in the color of the car so that does not stand out too much.



Final result looks nice I think, like it's original (imho).
Butt dyno says better throttle response in the midrange. And ofcourse more and cooler air...

That was one of my first thoughts too, funny that you mentioned it. But then i thought, o well it's a turbo sucking very hard and with the louvres the other way round it will shove buckets of water in to it when its raining.

After driving it for a few months now I can say it is breathing (cool air) very well.

Very cool- some great work going on here! I think I'm going to copy your idea for the PCV hose, the foam around mine is starting to deteriorate.

Hi, I`ve designed and 3D printed a "Piston install jig" fo easy installing your pistons with piston rings in to your engine.

The tool is tapered so the top is wider then the bottom. In this way you can easily fit the piston rings, slide it down and drop it in the bore. Tested it and works great.
The "bubbles" on top are for easily recognizing the top of the jig

Here we go, pictures are self explaining:

And another piece of 3D that I`ve drawed lately, cuz the speaker caps are mostly gone...
The supports are different, left and right and are trapezoid shaped so keep that in mind.

Default Caster trick

Photo's from the rod and washer trick I did for the caster (and so many people asked for):

Concerning thread: DET17 camber mod

Concerning thread: Janspeed in Renny D's post







And an interesting document concerning the special tool (sorry in Dutch but you get the drift) about the three different rods.

Standard 390,5 mm
Short 385 mm
Long (so called tTaxi rods) 396 mm.
