Ok, here'* probably the last update on Paul'*. After this update, the Bullet'* new blower will be left out (it'll be shipped soon) and Haro'* and Zilla'* will follow on.
Keep in mind all these surfaces on the inlet and outlet are VERY rough sand castings. Smoothing the GenV'* tougher alloy is a bitch.
Starting off with the TB adapter again (this adapter is required to mate the L67 TB to the GenV blower inlet), this adapter was blended to better match the inlet diameter of the GenV blower, then polished:
The inlet went through a tougher transformation. Per Paul'* request, the EGR was filled and blended, then the inlet was smoothed and lightly polished. You can see the 'blended egr plug' in the pic, and you can see how it'* smoothed out alot. This combats heat caused by friction. The inlet is actually the hottest portion of a SC under boost:
Note that polishing the inlet to a mirror would be very difficult and would gain little over the amount you see here, but I'll be making another polishing pass or two on this sucker anyway.
On to the outlet. Sharp corners create heat. All sharp corners were blended off, then polished:
Again, I'll probably make a couple more passes on this outlet before shipping it back to Canada. The GenV alloy is MUCH tougher and very hard to work. Particuarly at this level of detail.
And just because I can, I decided to leave my signature on a worthless feature on the EXTERIOR of this SC:
This polishing job clearly needs more work. I can't see the date of mint on the penny in the reflection.
