No. It is the fan used to cool the oil cooler in the right front fender and the A/C condenser in the left front fender.

OH, thx. No sense of scale, so hard to tell the actual size of the thing.

Interesting weight savings

Porsche Lithium Ion Battery saves 22 lbs.

Attached are the latest work in progress pictures of parts of the titanium torque converter. The "damper" part of it including the springs are also being made in titanium.

After calculations showed that the weight savings for all four combined was less than 100 grams, the valve (cam) covers will remain plastic.

But even those are not the original covers. Your team made those, correct?

What about fan/alternator housing. Or the dual distributor housing (or still going with coil over plugs)? I mean, what is left to redo for weight savings?

Robert

Could you give me a bit more information on this please. Sounds more than a simple OEM replacement.

c. America GS Aluminum High Efficiency Triple Engine Oil Cooler System

Something to think about for high ambient heat countries.

Thx
Andrew

Induction system coming along. Rough (i.e., before machining and fitting of parts such as actuators for dual resonance flaps) air box and air filter housing.
