Thanks for the kind words guys! I just talked to the shop again today and we're gonna put her on a bit more of a diet. We're hoping to keep it under 2800 lbs when done so we can get away with the 1.625 bars for the cage instead of the 1.750 if we're above that mark. We figured it's sitting at about 2715 lbs right now but it's still missing some stuff like fluids and misc hoses and fittings.

That is super light for a GD without the use of composites

Are you running phenolic spacers under the TGV's? Isn't it just a plenum interference issue?

Yeah that does seem pretty light to me to be honest. I got the charcoal canister, both bumper beams removed, HVAC and and interior pretty yeah gutted right now. Just hoping to keep it under 2800 when finished.

I am running 8mm spacers though so nothing super crazy

Yeah that baised on pictures it is in gutted form with plenty left to add back on. I would need to re-look sense its been a bit on all the modifications you have specifically done. I do know my '04 is "full interior" and it will all the fluids full including fuel tank to the brim is right at 2800lbs so a fair bit lighter than 2800lbs is possible.

Well that's good to hear some other perspective on this. Hopefully we'll have all the parts installed soon and some extra carbon fiber replacement panels so we can get the real weight. He's thinking he'll have the cage done on Friday. The main hoop and rear bars are in now though

I have managed to design a new fuelling system for my new long runner NA intake where I don't need to have any phenolic spacers at all to clear the AVCS solenoids. May not solve you interference issues. Some details here. Eventually I will want some new rails in aluminum or possibly there is a taller injector and I can raise the fuel rail up. I have not publicised this much as it is untested, but it is ready to try.

But, why run spacers at all on your short two-piece manifold? I understand it is not the one piece, long runner NA that I run reversed. With them, the usual practice is to run a really thick spacer so the fuel rails clear the AVCS solenoids. I think

Hmm that's an interesting way to do it. I'm actually running a short runner manifold though so I have my normal TGV deletes on there

Nice! There's a growing Rocky Mountain Time Trial series in the area too. Based off the SCCA Time Trials with events at PPIR, La Junta, HPR, and Pueblo throughout the year.

And then of course Gridlife Alpine in August.

I'll have to check them out more. I've been kinda following them as well. Gridlife Alpine would be very cool to attend as well.

Why the hood scoop delete? Looks amazing with the louvers, might it look even better with scoop and allow even more air circulation?

A hood scoop with a front mount intercooler is not a wise decision. The air coming in the hood scoop creates positive pressure and reduces the efficiency of the front mount intercooler. Most track build guys will block off or delete the hood scoop unless going with a top-mounted oil cooler.

He is right , have to make for efficient removal of hot air from your engine bay and top mounted oil coolers come with a host of other issues.

Generally you add vents to the sides of the hood to extract hot air as quickly as possible.

Unfortunately I still haven't had a chance to run the car. It's been a very slow crawl, especially this year. I've been furloughed since March and haven't really been putting much into it. The shop that it's at now put the car on hold to work on their puke
Pike's Peak hill climb car but should be finishing up the Intercooler piping and subframes soon.

Thank you! I'm really excited to get this car running and also seeing that intake manifold and the rest of the new bits with their powder coating. Gonna have the manifold purple again and rotated back to standard orientation to make things easier.

Yeah just going off what the others said that you don't want to have opposing forces with the air coming into the engine bay basically. With that center vent also, heat would come out and go right back through the scoop.
