Aerodynamics

OK this topic is seldom discussed. There's a track out here in California which is very fast and it's possible to hit 120-125 on the straights. My 75 has euro bumpers (like the normal 1.8ie) and the bigger skirts. What will a lower lip/splitter or a slightly bigger wing (like the IMSA cars)?

I could not find how the kit looks like? Did you extend the shaft below the shifter's pivot point ? That would shorten the throws.

Lenz,

Your 75 is awesome.

BTW, take lots of pictures and notes of the 155/166 conversion. BTW, will it be a 3.0 or 3.2? I have the same color 155 V6 :-) . I may want to do the same. My 75 only (hopefully) needs a new coat of paint and 17" wheels.

If you can do some of the work yourself, then AUS$10K can go quite a long way. For example, taking the engine out and installing it yourself can save you a bundle. Disassembling the engine yourself will also save you lots of money. Send it all of to a reputable shop and have them put in total seal r...

No SC for now. I'll try to keep it the way it is now. It needs a new paint job, a HUGE but stock looking intake (ala Beninca's modified airbox) and a good dyno tune.

They should bolt on just fine. The weight for 15 X 7 is about 13.2 lbs. Pretty good IMHO.

Yeah just called up a few places. Minimum order is $150. OK I guess if I need many flanges. R200 is about US$33? That sounds good. Even if you ship me using regular mail (Another $10?), that would still save me lots of money. Anyway I just ordered pre-cut CNC mildsteel flanges from www.spdexhaust.co...

Barry,

What about the bracketry and the cables for the 156 calipers for the rears? Are you also using 156 discs?

Creative stuff Barry! Threading the the rotors. OK I had a friend weld small pieces on the back of the rotor. Didn't work too well. So then I just drilled holes and bolted on some small allen bolts adjacent to the "flat" side of the studs to stop it from spinning. Or was it a countersunk machine sce...

Some are not willing, due to low quantity. I mean, I only need 2. Maybe 4. So they'll either charge a really high price (maybe US$50/flange) or a I'll have to wait around until they feel like doing it for less.

Is 8mm thick enough for downpipe use? Or will it warp? I think for N/A cars the exhaust temp won't get too hot. But I was told, anything close to the headers should at least get 3/8". But 8mm is closer to 1/4".

Mats,

What's the thickness? Shipping shouldn't be too bad actually.


Peter,

I have something similar to the Jcwhitney stuff. It's not very flat and doesn't seal that well.
