Yeah I have a lot more room than that.
You can see my discharge pipe just touches my bonnet at times. I think it's 3", but can't remember.

Just looking at your setup. I think one day I will get an aftermarket export brace.
I have bugger all room with the LS coils mounted on top.

Lol.. i laugh again because i went through the same thing. I reckon we would have the same spare parts lol. . Mine sits lower and hd the option to 'bend a little. . While i know thats not ideal would be better than nothing somewhat.. but then my intake went the direction it did and now its off the cards completely. . So i have an expensive broomstick now

George came around today and I got to compare his setup to mine. The issue is that my novi sits a lot further back. To the point where I had to slightly clearance the valve cover as it was hitting the volute. With that valuable 1-2" lost, it seems pretty impossible to get a bend to come back out to the front.
There is another possible solution I will investigate though, use the cowl induction hood to my advantage.

Have you got any room at the front to move everything forward?

I do have a little room, maybe an inch. But that would mean spacing everything out ie crank, water pump, ac/ps etc. Can be done though, not sure if it will give me enough.

As said the only thing I'm worried about is intake temps at cruise. So I will investigate other ways around that.

To be honest, my cold air intake didn't make much difference to my intake temps.
The supercharger also makes a good heater.

yeah, a nice heat pump for sure. I think I'm going to run the fine mesh filter and see how I go.

George and I discussed moulding something out of foam with the intent of making a pipe that transitions to an oval out of fibreglass at one stage for his car. Fibreglass is messy to work with but you get the hang of it pretty quick.

Yeah george mentioned this to me. I have done some basic stuff with fibreglass before, very messy and smelly.

I just had another thought. As my primary reason for an intake pipe was to bring colder air in, why not just find a way to bring cold air to the novi using the mesh filter.

What do you guys think about adding something like a NACA duct, just above and forward of the inlet, and then run some short tube to the inlet of the novi. It wouldn't be sealed shut to the novi intake, as I'd have about a 1/2" standoff to allow any water to run out, but would force a lot of cold air into the inlet. The picture below is just an example, but I do see you can get them with a 3-4" outlet.


I have a fibreglass hood and I'm not afraid to cut into the thing at all, as long as the end result won't look tacky and cheap.

Best spot is if you could get it to the plenum chamber.
