Resurrecting Jalpa #359

Recommended Posts

Got a finished product at last. Multiple revisions and made some that fit them PERFECTLY with my own flare. Tried one out on my way to breakfast and the fit is perfect. Printing the last few and i'll have a full custom set. Plenums to be printed next. Got another 8 hours of printing to get these out since last 2 are at the same time. I need a larger printer already lol.

got all of them printed out and in. the flow /seems/ much better, i need to flow test with a meter. but since there's no lip it's unmistakably better. response seems good. i need to get some pretty hardware to make them not just a test fit. after multiple revisions i've got some perfect 100 micron printed 40mm DCNF style velocity stacks.

 

I already had one guy ask to buy a set on another forum so I was like "alright" and printed off another pair and sold him some. perfect 40mm DCNF velocity stack fit because why settle for retrofitting right?

 

Haven't slept much. Quit my miserable corporate job to go to work for a local company with a paybump and amazing work. But it's a lot of work. Slept maybe 12 hours this week? Doesn't matter, love my team, love what I do now. This weekend is sleepy time and lambo stuff.

Alright, finally working on the airboxes. My brain hurts enough for one night. Used Rhino to do a quick sketchup of what i want them to look like and am slowly working in google sketchup to get it where it needs to be.

 

My brain hurts enough for one night so that's enough progress for tonight.

Have you dynoed your car yet?

 

I have not. My machinist expects around 300hp. Then again, Derek E's Jalpa dyno'd in at like 180-190 to the wheels. Stock is 255. I'm uncertain if that's an engine dyno or at the wheels. Either way, regardless, it'll be better than stock and that's all I care about, with efi that starts up happily, runs happily and has zero issues that don't require me constantly fcuking with the bastard DCNFs.

 

Sorry for the late response everyone. Work has been insanely busy, and even tonight I've gotta get back to it, but I wanted to share the progress of the airboxes, which are ready to print.

At high quality, 100 microns, it's going to take roughly 14 to 18 hours for each piece. Should have it on the car by the end of the week if I time it right. Can't wait to see the first one on the car. Finally can have some airboxes to fight the heat of the engine bay!
