If you dont want to update your project thread or don´t have any.

Let us know what is happening or will happen in your garage (with your car)

this winter?

 

I´m looking for inspiration.

Got a second set of wheels, and some fresh R888Rs to fit, then in spring will fit something less aggressive on my 5 spokes for wet tracks and general road use.

Still undecided on what backbox will help with my noise issues so that might drag on.

And work out which bearing on my serpentine belt is starting to whine...

My self is going to understand whats wrong with my engine management.

Since I don´t have any warm gararge any longer not much will happen during this winter.

Some own designed side scoops for the NA to lower the oiltemp. 

 

Either this design

Or maybe something like this

Or the first one with a sharper bending along the joint line between clam and side fenders.

Not my measurements but apparently 5.3 & 6.9kg.

I like the first pic, would it be easier to get a turbo ear and modify it if needed?

Alternatively you could cut the panel in front of the oem grille away, and fit a large negative vent like the NACA ducts on an F40.

Going to make a new intake for the SC, because thé one i made was to restrictieve. (25hp)
Put a bigger chargercooler pump and Carbon turbo ears with real inserts for better cooling. Refub my front brake callipers.
That's for my Speedster.
For a other one going to a full SC conversion

Hahaha! I do recognise a lot there!

 

I am going to find the rattle under my dash and fix my heating switch. (Fixed)

Fix my automatic light. Intermittent fault. 

Fabricate a support for my SAAB air filter. I do not like the cone filter I use now.
