Thanks for the advice guys....will definitely take it on board. As for loctite is it necessary to use the really strong red loctite on everything. I guess in other words what is the recommended loctite to use :)

My loctite rule of thumb is:

Blue on anything I want to be able to remove in the future

Red on anything I want to stay on forever, or till I heat to remove..

If you can't heat the part, I shy away from Red..

My rule is Red on everything, just the quantity used each application varys as to how "locked" I want that bolt to be.
The bolt or nut being clean is really important to the stuff working well.

Yeah Toyz Red all the way baby as Tony says, I use 262, as a rule of thumb, and clean nuts & bolts will create a much better bond.

I've never had a problems removing anything that I used the Red 262 on at all, it might require a lot more elbow grease to remove a nut, but you know it won't come loose!

Thanks fellas. 262 is what I have been using. Needed it to put the 3" primary on my bike and had plenty left over. Going to use lots of lock wire too where I can.

Made some headway on the air intake system today.(sorry Tony but a bit of a copy cat. I liked the idea of the scoop :oops: )

First I made some plates out of 3mm ali for the filter box with a hole to take a 2.5" collar.

Image

Image

I hunted around for 2.5" ali tube everywhere and couldn't get anything close so I cut a strip of 3mm ali 20mm wide and rolled it to fit. Didn't turn out too bad but not quite a circle....anyway the ducting fits...

Image

I then welded the collars to the plate and voila!

Image

Image

The ducting fits over perfectly. I'm really happy with the way it turned out. Just need to make the scoop now.

Hey Toyz,

Just a quick question, would it be better to face your Air Ducts forward & Ram Force the Air into your airbox?

:?: :?: :?: :?: :?: Not sure if your being sarcastic or not :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:

They're just laying back there until I get the airbox made and then they will go into the bottom of the airbox on the roof :lol: :lol:

I'm of two minds as well. Would depend on the environment you are running it in I spose. If they collect too much crap I can always take them off no probs.

My car has a cylinder for debris and water etc with an escape chute in the air filter box, maybe something to consider doing for yours?
I like the idea of ram air its something i will do for mine, i have also seen 4wd's with the snorkels facing backwards. i think that would have a detrimental effect on performance, but not nearly as bad as a mouthful of water i suppose.
