After numberous delays I have completed the installation on the test body. All that remains is to tranfer over the componets, find a hot while cranking supply lead and feed the M/S from the carb cooling circuit. I also made a stainless bung and welded it to the stock exhaust pipe. I have M/S Extra software loaded, but have not filled in the map, nor purchased my fire extinquishers.

I am a bit leary about the whole conversion as my car with the carb runs well. Starting over my reluctance shines through.

Any suggestions from those that have been down this path is most welcome.

I did a post in these forms about it.( I know I posted it on the UK site)

It is made from stainless steel. The throttle body is from a Honda D-15 B engine.

For heat transfer copper is 100%, alumium is 84%, Steel is 13%, and stainless steel is 2%. My thoughts are that the X engine bay is really hot, so I have tried to make all the parts from stainless steel hoping to keep the charging air as cool as possible.
