I'd be curious to know what sore of airbox config you are considering as well. For reference here is Louis Ott's airbox (I believe this car now lives in Texas by a RL member). I snapped these photos in 2016 on a lunch meeting with Louis.

I had a chance to use Louie's mold but I wanted to go in a different direction. Most of the air boxes are constructed purely for function (look boxy) & I wanted more on the aesthetics side as well. Louie did make some good suggestions about adding a port in the bottom for serviceability. So I have encorporated some of his ideas in my new design.

I'll be watching your thread with great interest. Please share your designs as you are working out. I'll always very enjoyable see the innovation process at work.

actually I stoped posting some things that I do on my car simply because of the Internet engineer mentality and this forums tendency of everybody to dog pile on stuff that you’re designing. Stuff you’re doing when they’ve never done anything even close. Everyone is a mechanical engineer it seems. Back in my variocam days some folks told me I couldn’t possibly do something I already did. So when it comes to the air box it won’t be up for debate. I will just post pics when it is done.

Engine in...and without removing the washer filler neck!!
Great work so far, keep it up. Subscribed. (Just curious, are you doing this solely as a personal project or in hopes of putting together a kit? Not currently on my radar, but I'd be very interested in a run-down of your parts list and findings when you are done.)

No mounts in place at the moment. I will finish the rest next weekend.

Louie Ott made about 5-6 kits. I was lucky enough to fine a unused set for sale on the secondary market.

I think when Louie did the intake he had to tilt the radiator top backwards to get room for the over the top air filter set up.....lots of mods .....

Yes that was one of many mod he did to keep the factory hood line. I threw that out the window and went for a more direct simple air flow path.

There is no way that you'll be able to get that engine into that small space in the car.

Good job!!

Good job!!
It only took me 9 years.... I had to do it solo.... I talked about doing a tech session to install it for like 5 years so no one believed me I was going to do it. The irony is that the install took less than 30 minutes.

someone posted above that I did it with the windshield washer neck present. Uh is there any other way? I also had the dual disk clutch and pressure plate with short shaft installed. Do I get extra points?

Oh and to the several that sent me messages to tell me I exceeded the hoist clearly painted on the other side.. 1/2 ton is 1000 lb's... the 928 engine is less than 3/4 the rate painted on the arm....... where is Kibort when you need him for the math?
