The water helps keep the dust (bad for you and your lungs) way down. The wet swarf is still something to contend with however.

Looking forward to the results.

Nice work!

Damn, I had to google swarf.

For as many decades as I've swept up that stuff, i'm embarrassed that I didn't know the official name for it.

Heres what Ive got so far for the rad exit...
Both sides will be flanged, to mount to the rad, and to meet up with the hood section. I didnt want the duct to go all the way to the hood so that I can do basic checkups on the belts, oil pump, power steering, etc without removing the duct every time. The hood will have the rest of the duct molded in so that it just lifts out of the way when you open the hood.

And the passenger side gill...
This is a weird shape and Im having a hard time getting this to cleanly attach to the wheel tub. It will be worth it in the end... a view of a 335 tire in a carbon duct through the side gill! Off to buy some thicker foam board...

Very nice!! A question - do you have a surge tank? Looks like your radiator cap is well below the water level in the intake, so won't you need a higher fill point to purge the air?

Currently, no... I havent gotten that far yet; but I was hoping to not have to run one. I use a vacuum filling system, so I was going to see how that works to fill it sans-air. I bought an inline radiator cap that I may put on the upper hose somewhere if I cant defy gravity with the vacuum fill.
