    Last night I got a got a chance to get back doing some work on the car. First job was to refill the gearbox with Titan Race LS90 gear oil, because I like starting with the handy jobs. I picked to some nice 78mm flexi pipe from Murray's yesterday which should be perfect for the cold air feed into the new air box.


    I also got back to work on the air box and started making the back plate and top plate.






    Fits like a glove
    The top plate was handy to make but I'll fit some nice hinges do I can easily open it for inspection or removal.



    All that's left now is to fit hinges and make up two side panels. I have a 83mm hole saw which will be the perfect size for the hose pipe. Coil and FPR will be relocated at a later stage. I was chatting one of the guys in itcc and he recommended wrapping the box with battery insulation to keep heat out, sounds like a good idea
    I'll have to make something for the bumper to collect as much cold air as possible. I might use some 3mm foamex for this as I have loads left over from making door cards.

    Didn't update I a while but since the last update I have completed my throttle bodies air box. Lots of work involved but I'm happy with the result.



    Best place to take air supply for now was the head light! I kinda got lucky as the hole for the head light was the exact size for the 78mm pipe. As you can see I wrapped the pipe with aluminium heat reflective foil tape. This should help keep heat out and keep inlet temps down.



    The air box itself is completely wrapped with stick on sound deadening padding sourced from top part in mullingar. This should act as an insulator and help keep the air cool. As the padded was black it also got wrapped with the heat reflective foil. Thankfully it still sounds good and didn't completely muffle out that throttle bodies noise

    This is the sound deadening padding going on. Really nice material and very cheap. I was surprised with how well it actually stuck to the aluminium.



    Just don't a small test run since fitting and everything feels good. Really looking forward to the track day on the 25th now and see if all my latest efforts have been worth while

    Cheers Joe Definitely get ya out for a few laps man. Think I'll have a little shake down first. There is an MEC rally sprint on next weekend in Mondello so I'm thinking I might enter for the crack

    So before the track day on the 25th I'll be taking the Saxo down to Mondello for the MEC Rally sprint on Sunday. It's on all weekend but I'll be just doing the one day. The car should be ready to rock but I feel it still needs a wee map tweak. Hopefully everything go's ok and I find have to fix anything before the track day.

    Looks like a great weekend always some great machines knocking around sprints.
    Hope all the latest upgrades help
