The welding's coming along pretty well. No need to grind that down!

I finished painting the inlet.

I had a few minutes spare at work, so I quickly made a model of the inlet manifold in Solidworks and hastily did a flow simulation. I will tidy up the model and go from there.

Added the curved runners and the length of hose from the filter. Here's a quick pic and a video.

Out of interest, this is not mine but shows a design that has different and not quite such desirable flow.

What I need to do to improve my CAD model simulation is make it dynamic by adding a firing order to the inlet runners and add cam overlap to give a true reflection of what happens when an engine runs, it does not just pump to all cylinders at the same time, this will however, take a fair bit of time and math.  :-\

 :o wow impressive CFD modelling, what software are you using Tom and where did you learn CFD...at work or Uni?

I haven't forgotten about those dims by the way, just been flat out trying to get bits done on the car!

I've been doing a load of reading up trying to decide what to do aero wise on the racecar.....I want to go with front splitter/engine undertray as one piece then a flat floor by the way of aluminium sheet and then a rear diffuser.

I've removed the spare wheel well and will be having a centre exit exhaust so plenty of room for a nice big diffuser  ;)
