sabbasaun, good job with the pics, I like.
Thanks Tufast, I'm not a professional by any means but I think the pics came out ok.

Too bad we couldn't release these before the car was shown, but cool nonetheless.
Yeah but I understand why they didn't want them to be released. They wanted to generate some hype for the show and the car and it worked. Hopefully we'll be able to see the car in some racing events because it would be a shame to just have this thing garaged all the time.

I get that you'd run a top mount for shorter IC pipes, but with the finished product at SEMA, it doesn't look like there is really a direct path or even a scoop like Subies have. So why not just make it a BFMIC?
It'd be nice to be able to go ahead and get one of those exhaust manifold flanges, that way as soon as you drive the car off the lot you can go straight to your fabricators for a tubilar manifold build! This car is going to be a blast w/ a 30 or 35r on it!

Uneedthis2, its a v mount setup. Alot of drifters and some racers use it for better throttle response but still allowing good flow for the IC. If you look closely yall see a piece of carbon fiber between the ic and the radiator. Its a spliter to send air from the front of the car up through the ic and out the hood cutout. Pic 4 and 10 (count down from the top) offer the best view of this splitter.

Also, I plan to measure the stock manifold flange and have new ss versions CNC'ed for manifolds. I am planning to run a gt35r shortly after i get mine :)

I totally get that there's a piece deflecting air into the intercooler, but I just figured the IC filling up the front end and hitting the air directly, you're get better cooling

technically yes. But you are also making the same air less efficent for the radiator behind a FMIC. In drifitng, cars are going sideways and a FMIC wouldn't even be getting direct air also. In this application, as a race car, the fact that the air coming through the bumper is split between the ic and the radiator for proper cooling at both heat exchangers.

Gotcha, newb to drifting
