Oh, by the way...

It's probably a good thing I'm 2000 miles away from you.

If I lived close, I'd be a PEST!

I'd spend way too much time at the Red Barn...

Here's a sneak peek at some content from the next video:
The driver side plenum partch was mostly in place and we couldn't resist seeing what it was going to look like once it's ready for new wrinkle finish. That top section got final welding, some file work then sanded. Yep, that'll work!

Then it was on to patching the passenger side.

FYI, I just watched the most recent Hoovie’s Garage video and he said EAG investors have started forfeiting assets…

So, you better get your cables quick!

@Van B - Yep, I'm aware and yes, it's looking like a bit of a shit show. I'm working with an ex-employee who may be able to help. I'm also in touch with another company that makes conversion kits as well as a custom cable company.

As I nearly always say: If it were easy, everyone would be doing it.

Martin is back at it! I serve as decision maker and Lovely Assistant when it comes to some aspects of my builds and this intake work falls into that category.
As you'll hear in the upcoming video, I'm good enough at enough skills that I'm OK when it comes to things I'm not good at! If I need help, I ask.
I can't afford to practice on parts that are this visible so I call in the expert!

And here you see why. Plus, it's great to take a break from working solo.

Point of clarification: I don't just call Martin and ask him to do all this. We've worked out a "bro deal" hourly rate. This works great because we can ask each other, "you feel like working today?" No one feels taken advantage of and while we are good friends, when he's At The Red Barn helping me or I'm helping him with his project, we focus on the job at hand. It's worked great for years.

I took a swing at what I may want to do to the engine lid to get the clearance I need for the throttle bodies: curving the leading edge of the grill area.

I started with the driver side, just to see what my immediate raction would be... and I think I like it!
I was worried that messing with that very straight edge would go horribly wrong but when I look at it, it seems to flow with the sail panels, the curve of the roof, the arch of the trunk lid, etc. Comparing it to the right side, I think it softens the look in that area and doesn't look out of place.
I'll cut the other side and tidy it up a bit more but I think this may work.

Would you do a double mesh GT style grill covering all the way across if you go with the curved style?

@Van B - If it's all mesh, the curved part would simply be some sort of support frame, since the standard diagonal brace no longer fits.

Catch up on all the details in the latest video. And notice how much goes on during the time lapse sections.

Yeah… it’s just what I was picturing. The Ferrari manifolds kinda veiled, but visible.

With your idea of the bridging across the top vs cut out, I started picturing the ability to create an amalgam of porsche and Ferrari design cues.

Not trying to advocate for what your vision should be; rather, I’m just sharing what I started thinking.

Something I just noticed...

"Ferrari" and "Red Barn" have the same number of letters.

The F could easily be changed to an R. The second letter is an e already...

I'd contemplate changing the name on the top of the intakes to reduce possible litigation.

Not sure if they could pop you for using one of their engines in anything but avoiding this all together might be easier...

Might be better choices than "Red Barn", food for thought.

Case in point, the Maserati use of a Ferrari engine does not say Ferrari on it in big bold letters.

I believe Ferrari and Maserati are RELATED (stepsiblings maybe?) and they still don't say Ferrari...

@technicalninja Rick - That is hilarious! And so, OK. Issue solved! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/aktion035.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/av-943.gif)

WOW!

That looks better than I thought it would.

Some creative application of aluminum could make that "litigation proof" and still get the message across...

It would require a Master!

Luckily you have one...



I'd love to see the INSIDES of those plenums...

In order to get a more accurate visual, I made a quickie return and clamped it onto the curve. With that dropped edge, it still looked crowded at the plenum so I moved that end of the curve forward maybe another .75".
That overhead shot shows just how much material has been removed but it's no where near as dramatic when viewed from the side. Of course, the car is on the Quick Jacks so much higher than it will be when typically seen.

But I think this curve idea works well and that return REALLY cleans things up and gives a better impression of how this is going to look.
