I purposely made mine blend it and boring looking so it wouldn't stand out, last thing I want is attention.

It's not even low, it's probably in the top 10% of the world's highest R33s LOL

I think this proves my point moreso than yours, this is absolutely a more sporting looking vehicle than a M340i sedan. It is boring to you as you've seen it for many years, this is the human condition 😛

Price difference brah, M340i is still dreaming territory in terms of coinage, RS4 is true drug dealer league lol

They were talking M3s at one stage which the price point is closer the the rs4 and then both can see who has the bigger stone attached to their resale value

Updates to the intake department, using an old intake pipe as a guide. That's going too 😁

Yeah I know, could easily reuse it blah blah blah but I want to sell it as a kit with my old intake cover, catch can setup.

Just final mock ups before it sees the powder coater with the subframe.

As someone who is just starting to adapt the JSAI alloy airbox into my car..... and realising how 'fun' its gonna be.

What's the bottom line of this look like, the one that follows the chassis, lines, etc?

doesn't really line up to anything down there, I'll snap up some photos when I get the car back :)

So... how does it seal, and not just pull air from the engine bay via the gaps?

there's no real "seal" however there is sufficient air to be drawn from the OEM side mount piping holes, guard, etc.

Would be great to fully seal it and have it suck only chilled external air, however it's a turbo car, with a decent FMIC so I'm not too concerned with the compressor inlet temperature, just as long as the intake air temp is sub 40~50 degrees at full tilt with awful amounts of boost thrown at it.

You don't need to "seal" an airbox, you just need the air coming in to positively pressurise the space enough to stop hot air being drawn in. 

Just having an air guide can be enough on its own depending what's feeding it.

Surely having a pod in there removing all of the air in the box will cause it to draw from around the edges? I guess not with an air ram/scoop but the proof is in the IAT's really... but as discussed _less_ important on a turbo car as your intercooler is doing most of the work. But it helps to lessen the load the cooler must do though.

    • Just wondering if there is anyone else. Spoke to them but want to know if there is other prices out there in Aus. Do you know who make the polycarbonate windshields? 
    • Try a window tinter for tear offs, a local place here in Townsville has done them in the past. A quick google search will help https://www.facebook.com/RaceScreen-Tear-Offs-169184126960839/ https://www.alfab.com.au/3d-shaped-polycarbonate-race-boat/
    • Yes but no.  Start with 450hp and see how it goes. Should go alright with Z221 295 Hankooks all round. I'm running Enkei RPF1's but reading the above might have to look at other options if I get into it again. Koya seem to have some well priced semi forged wheels.
    • Anyone know we’re I can get tear off racing windscreens in Australia? Similar to the ones you see on the V8 or on your motor cross googles. Also where can I get polycarbonate windscreens for a commodore here in aus ? Please let me know 
    • @GTSBoy, School me on the ITB options!! We are not committed to the RB26 option. For us it is all about the sound and feel of the car. Big power figures are not required. Any RB25 NA engine is going to be a big power increase on what an L series NA can do. It has to run well on 98 fuel. I run my WRX on E85, and I like it on a big boost turbo, but it can be a hassle to get at times. The S30 has to be able to go on a cruise and get fuel in little town 2 hours from a major city. So that will probably set the comp. Then we will get the heads done and some not too wild cams. I think revving for max power around 8k (limit to 8500?) as it will cost lots to get a bottom end to stay together much higher.  That should set the cams. We want to run the NCVS which is one of the reasons I wanted the NEO head. Some nice headers with the ITB should do OK for power and sound great.  Light flywheel so it is snappy free revving.  We just have to find the right engine to start with first!
