The guy who made the roll bar only allowed for a single 5th point of the harness, so have to re drill 2 more holes in the member.

So yesterday, the 29th, i finally dropped my car off at Octane, to do the much overdue Vanos (refresh) and pump disc upgrade, and while the top end is apart, the install of the Shrick cams. Also while the car is there, the front right Fang intake will be replaced by a 19 core oil cooler, and the left fang intake will be re-routed directly to the CSL intake.
Sounds F'ing proper Vanne. Great plans!

The seats look like they would be at home in a space ship! Sick build!

Quick and dirty update...

Nose off. GC race sway being re-painted in Red to match the body work.


Genious masterminds doing their magic fabrication and production skillz..


Spot the difference?


Furnishing supports and keeping it semi OEM looking. Intake Port fully open on this side to promote free flow. Looking for a 5 to 8 degree C drop to oil temp..


Terrible photo...


And the other side, due to much limited space, two 1.25 inch hoses, pressurised by the duct force air into the bottom extension of the CSL snorkel. Finally some added pressurised cold air..
I wish I'd taken a few more photos of this as these guys were doing a really awesome job.. this should also drop the intake temp by at least 5 degrees, possibly more, and the cold air from outside will facilitate ambient air into the snorkel too. Faster flow from below.
The hoses won't protrude into the intake, but will be flush to the surface. The top was choosen due to the max pressurising differential at the top..

As always, comments more than welcome..

12.5 here mate, high lift needs new springs/retainers and possibly high compression pistons.. if i was gonna do that, id be investing in a stroker.

actually, high compression pistons are completely UNNECESSARY by going to a higher lift cam set.

But yes, you do have to use new springs/retainers.
And there IS the possibility that there might not be enough valve relief on the piston dome. Possibly.

What about your tune after the headers/cam install?
I'm really interested in that.
Thanks.
Awesome build.

Looking mint Vanne, this page is full of solid updates. Your use of the two side ducts is good, has me considering oil cooler in the future.
