Now, if i had said that he'd get pissy and go in the corner and pout.
How do you know I didn't just do that very same thing? :rolling:

I'm already over the loss of the prev. airbox. Already started on my new ones.





BTW, the compressor housing will be rotated, the pipe pointing down WILL clear the compressor. After I'm done I will sand it completely smooth.

Ah! you gotta love the Dutch folks.

A good friend of mine here in Alabama was born and raised
in Holland. Funny..........he's a Mechanical engineer and
works at a local speed shop that specializes in Turbos.
( I not kidding here ) He's also a pilot with multiple ratings.
He did all my engine spec and balancing of my SB truck engine.
I take care of his Paint & Body and He covers my mechanical.

My kids love to heard him and his wife talk cause they speak
"that Freaky-Deaky Dutch" :rolling:

J/K :D He's really a cool guy, his name's MARCO...........
That's pretty darn close to TT's name isn't it. :laughing:

Yeah, his car is nice, I really liked the rad frame and tank. I'm a sucker for custom fabbed stuff. I hate chrome LOL

Mine looks like a whole car again...well I sort of cheated. The front clip is just laying on there. need to fabricate a whole new hinge since I modified the front frame for the intercoolers and other misc. stuff there.





Even the L88 buckets still fit. I test fitted it, it just clears LOL maybe even the stockers will fit, didn't check that.

Not to be a negative nancy, but wouldnt a box that left room for the really short ram tubes help? I am pretty sure the original lotuses had them in their boxes.

The box will have a 5mm backing plate and the carbs will haeva 1cm thick plate, together that makes a 1,5 cm plate that will have a radius to the choke size much like stack.
