Land vehicle Vehicle Car Auto part Engine

It's a first prototype and will have better clamps, but there is more to come. The sound is astounding. As soon as a have a final design, I'll dyno it.

Yup CF. Made a lot of runs today and when I came back, the filter wasn't hot at all.

So is that hose going to the air flow sensor or is that just the case vent?

thats for the crankcase breather. The Fiat intake system has no sensors or airflow meters in it. Most likely the ecu works off some sort of speed density system.

So just came back from another 1 hour run, mixed hwy and city. The sound is addicting, I was trying to find excuses to go somewhere every time I came back,lol. It sounds like a VTEC engine with a CAI mounted. Deep growl. Definitely more torque. Every time I was at a left turn, the wheels would spin and the car would slide a bit into the turn. Keep in mind that I have the auto and I was using the "tiptronic" manual feature, so imagine a manual.

I told my wife I was done for today and she asked me what exactly did I do. I told her to stand on the driveway and watch me pull to the light. I can see her eyes bugging out in the rear view as I pulled away. Of course she loves it. An exhaust would be crazy loud at this point and I've actually given up that idea for now.

Well, I want to change a bit of details in the design, add a surprise option and then that's the intention. I love doing this stuff.
