I also spent a considerable amount of time working with the new 3D printer making some parts and prototypes of parts. Below you will see a series of pictures of the new intake that I designed with Solidworks. So far its looking like it will work but I won't know until I try it.
|Oh, I got the new CNC parts today. Looks like I have a project for the next week or so!|
|Ok, here is the first part of the new induction. This part will get bolted to the front of the fuel servo. It has holes in the sides that I will eventually put some sort of door on that allows me to get alternate air if the intake gets blocked.|
|Attached to the plate is this big cone. Actually this is only half of the cone.|
|Here is the bottom half of the cone with the air filter inside.|
|This is a top down view of the top part of the cone. Here you can see both the bypasses on the side of the ring, and the ram air inlet in the middle of the ring.|
|This is a view from the outside of what the entire assembly will look like. The small hole you see in the middle is for the butterfly valve that I will use to control the ram air flow.|
|Another top down view. Here you can see the area of the intake filter that I need to remove to allow bypass air.|
