Thanks for your comments guys !
And thanks for the support you gave me for the past 5 years !

I haven't been very active on the forum lately... usually, the less active I am, the more I do ^^

I hope to get that part soon !
It's a first for me to create such a big part... Unlike the 9X6 plenums, this one has two big flat surfaces that may be a problem in terms of stiffness.
A lot of reinforcing ribs + 3 struts inside should be enough.
I'll add provisions for reinforcement from the outside later if needed.

I only get one shot on this ! Once it's printed, it will cost me as much as the grant I got, no prototype... get it right on get nothing !

I have updates for you on the plenums, and the shifter side lever !
I'll dyno my car soon, to do a before/after without remapping the DME, just a run with the plenum and 997 TB and a run without ! I'll go talk to the dyno guy Monday afternoon to see with him if I can wrench on my car in his shop (I only need 30min to swap plenums).

And for the lever, I have in on the car, and there is just nothing wrong about it I just love it !
So, I might get the final production started very soon !


Ben
