Hi everyone!

I've been a member on here for several years, and have a couple of minis myself. Im an engine builder by trade, but I have also been making custom parts for people's minis for a few years now (mainly exhausts).

I have recently set up my own fabrication business, mainly specialising in exhausts and other induction based parts, like plenum chambers and inlet manifolds, but I will also be offering a range of high quality performance parts for the mini. I am also able to make up bespoke parts, to help those wanting something that's not available 'off the shelf'.

Please visit my facebook page, to see my current available parts. I'm adding to this every week, and I'll be posting on here new parts available. :-)

Thanks
Matt

Hi, Would you be able to make a set of curved trumpets for Jenveys?

Hi, are you after full radius trumpets or bell mouth? Also what length and dia are they?

Here's the issue I have:
58A9BF55-99E9-4196-9A8A-BF85670C861C_zps
No room for any filtration on the far left trumpet for sure.
I'd need something that's 42mm, 90 degrees upturned and able to take some sort of filtration, ideally an airbox with a feed.

I see what you mean by lack of space. Can those spacers before the trumpets be removed to give extra clearance for bends?

Yes they can, the spacer and trumpet are around 40mm combined, this is the biggest problem area.

It would need to come straight off the flange at an angle then into a bend in order to clear the bulkhead, I could work it out and draw up a sketch if I need to.

The main problem will be that the tightest bend you can get is 1D so with a 40mm pipe it'll be a minimum of 60mm to the outer radius of the bend + the thickness of the flange. It may just squeeze in as it looks like the trumpets are slightly above the cross member? As they are tilted up slightly, the bend cut be cheated slightly and cut out of square to the section of the pipe, so it will end up bringing the inlet stubs 90 degree to the engine and not 90 degrees to the TBs...if that makes sense?

If you ran a cone shaped air box, this will help induce flow to the furthest cylinder, and help keep the volume in the air box up. This would be tapering largest end on the passenger side. Just throwing some ideas about. :-)

If you can do a drawing, that would be great, and I'll work out a costing.

Would you be able to make a filter box for a 40 DCOE to allow a cone filter to be fitted above the transfer casing?

 

Or would that destroy the air flow idea of the weber box?

As long as there is enough room around the trumpets it shouldn't be a problem. What setup have you got? Single box, full mig bulkhead, standard bulkhead?

Have you got trumpets on there? It's more important to have some trumpets on there, than go without.

If you've got enough room, it should be possible to make an air box to fit onto the back of the carb, with trumpets inside and have an air feed off that. As long as there is enough room to get an air feed bigger than the two chokes combined it shouldn't restrict airflow at all.

How about an intake manifold for my micra conversion? To fit the micra engine and inlet but to clear the bulkhead?

Yeah it should be something I can do. Have you got any pictures of your current setup?
