Custom Airbox

Postby jcasey007 » Thu Jul 06, 2017 5:42 am

I get quite a few messages asking for the information on how I made my custom airbox, that replaces the standard and unlike pod filters does not need a lot of messing about with jets.

So I've pulled all the pictures and drawings together and dumped them into a drop box that anyone can access from the link at the bottom.

In summary, this is what you need to get and do.

1. Find a set of Velocity Stacks, I found that the ones from a Rover V8 are ideal, they are steel (so you can cut and weld them and they are the correct diameter to suit the carbs - ebay usually have them (£20 for 8 of them) (currently ebay item 282533937999)
2. Also from ebay you will need a length of Silicon Hose (to go between the end of the velocity stack and the carb, also you will need some filter foam
3. The metal work is laser cut (I used a local company which cost £30) just give them the AutoCad drawings and they will be able to upload them and program the cutter directly.

NOTE the dimensions of this airbox are for the PD carbs if you want to change the spacing of the inlets to suite CV carbs you will need to change the Visio drawings and re-generate the AutoCad files

Any questions just shout

here's the link to the Dropbox https://www.dropbox.com/sh/cb4x5jz13v71 ... Tffaa?dl=0
