a W brace will make it impossible to do any engine work without removing at least part of it. But hey, if it helps, it helps.

Was it on this board that i recall someone saying they were going to try making a cold air intake, and if it was successful, would try making more and selling them...??
I was just curious as to how this turned out, and if you are making more?? Did you (whoever you are?) say that you were in Ontario?? sorry if i've got anyone confused...

I know, I was the one who posted that earlier. I am working with a local speed shop (Angry Duck Racing) on making those intakes. I will be posting pictures soon and with support from people, I will be able to figure out what options people want and then give prices based upon that. Some ideas are out of Aircraft Aluminum (the prototype is out of that and doesnt heat up much), or steel that is powerdercoated in a few color choices (mainly primary color options of the Bonneville years).

Secondly soon a protoype engine brace will be tried out on my car. It will be bigger and stronger than a V brace since our engine compartment is large and also need to stiffen up the front since we are front wheels drive. If you have any questions just email me at [email protected].

Well I am going to make my own custom brace but it is going to be more than a V brace, it will be more of a W which will be stronger and better since we have a much larger engine compartment to tie together.
