I am trying to simulate that, but I am not sure what the best way to go at it is, I am trying to find a good place to ask solidworks questions like that. My computer isnt powerful enough to straight render the fine mesh of the screen, but there might be something in FlowSimualtor that I'm missing that will make it easier. . . .

I have a quad runnin at 3.75 with 4 gb of ram, its my lack of a graphics card with CUDA that slows me down. But I figured out how to model the MAF screen thing, so I will start doing a nice write up this weekend through next week.

I've got 6gb of memory, a quadcore i7 at 4.5ghz with 2 GTX285SSCs at 730mhz core clock in SLI. Plenty of CUDA power!

I rendered the old northstar throttle body today, I will get crackin' on your setup this week, Should be fairly straight forward. I have solidworks setup to model air filters now too
