    Default What I did last weekend...more 6061 billet porn

    Seems I have no home, no more "gearheads" section.

    Since I have to pick one forum, I figured the V-drive guys would appreciate the billet porn the most.

    So I am working on a billet blower plenum/intake for Nissan V-6 in a sandrail. It is modeled after a cobbled together stock manifold with a plate welded on top for the Whipple/Lycoming supercharger.

    I have only finished the top so far.

    I was told it was the motor out of the 87-89 Maxima or maybe a 300ZX? I am not sure about that.

    It is running some kind of an early type of aftermarket FI computer(Aerotech or maybe Autotronic) since this car was originally built I think in 89 or so with an engine out of a wrecked car that had 250 miles on it

    I don't know what kind of hood clearance is on a G-35, but like most new cars, doubful. The manifold itself will be no taller that the stock manifold if that helps.

    Gain?

    Boost?

    HH magnacharger?

    No oxide as far as I know, didn't ask for it either, not enough transmission anyway.

    will it fit under the hood ?
    they runnin them with the stock ecm ? or motech ? (sp ?)

    how much gain ?
    how much boost ?
    does it work better than a high helix magnacharger ?

    are you making a nitrous sandwich plate too ? with annular discharge holes?

    i bet the trashcan is full of peperoni pizza boxes and pepsi bottles ? LOL !

    I have tried that before, problem is with the coolant spray, it would mostly turn into a shower scene.

    You aren't looking for THAT are you?

    Just for reference, I have about 8-10 hrs for the concept to a working design/programs and 8-10 hours of machine-time.
