Doesn't help that by the time you design and fab the plate, along with the rest of the system, the time of install, and the issues and glitches that you'll create or possibly create, pretty much negate the performance aspect of it.


Willwren was designing his own Intercooler, and after a while, the plans got scrubbed do to cause and complications with the designs. I should know, I was going to be one of the test cars

I would rather post things like this to/for this community. There are alot of A holes on club GP that do nothing but crap on anything that isn't sold by his/her company/friend....too much petty BS for me on that forum. Just my opinion. I usually get straight forward feedback and help here. I hope to have my build design in the coming weeks.....the design would be done but I decided to try and incorporate my nitrous application into the plate as well . I'll see how it looks in cad first though.

Those are bizarre claims to make. Do you have anything to substantiate them?

Cheers,

Lol.....it was early and on 3 hrs of sleep....I mean't cost effectivness of it over the trouble and hassle of it....

Willwren was designing one, then the project got scrapped when just the cost of materials hit fairly high, none the less the machining costs.

We need to clarify that the complications on the Series 1 are far more involved than the Series 2. Our supercharger is attached at the nosedrive to the alternator/accessory bracket, and nobody makes fuel logs for our application. Our belt path is also a complicating concern.

The S2 is not an issue in fabrication and design, but the complications with the S1 push the cost of the package out of the reach of most S1 L67 owners.
