Default Intake / intercooler project





Hey guys it's been awhile since I posted. Crazy busy at work, I put 1400 miles on the car last year. Things at work are starting to settle in and I got some good people taking over my tasks. So I can start playing with the car.
Im working on a intake project. The objective is to extend the powerband well beyond 6200 rpms realized with the stock manifold. I decided to use the 996GT3 intake and modify the center section for connection to the intercooler. This setup should make power beyond 7400 rpm
here are some pics.

The pictures look fantastic. Aircooled can still compete!
Hopefully someone out there has a spare engine they can lend or sell for mocking up the parts....

The nipples on each runner, which merge into TB, are for the DVs?

Yes the nipples are DVs ports. I need to verify the location after fitment in the engine bay.
