Alrighty... it's 3 in the morn and i'm just finishing a coat of epoxy for my carbon fiber intake.

Basically, since I have a roll of carbon fiber and just need to use it up. What I am doing is wrapping my AEM V2 intake with carbon fiber. I'm thinking that this helps to keep the air going through it even cooler, thus enhancing performance. Also, it looks cool and it's not just an AEM V2 like everyone else.

After 12 hours, I'll add another coat of epoxy and sand it and buff it and it'll look all spiffy.


of course pictures:

Yea... i've been giving him tips left and right.. RIGHT JOE?! =P.. lol don't kill yourself with all that fume in your apartment... lol

If anyone needs anything done related to carbon fiber you could let me know, it's the second business i do.. custom composite work for various things.. :) not just headlights :)

I told joe that it would be cool to ahve the pipe itself out of composite but i'm sure one day he'll gain enough experirence to do it :) i believe in him hehehe...

but yea... not sure how the weather is over in texas where he is.. but i hope that resin will be able to stand up to the underhood temp because that resin he used from west system has a max working temp of about 150 degrees or around there. Ah we'll see :)

Yep, good fine :) i saw that a while back.. if i remember correctly it has some pretty cool info for those who don't know much about the cf work.

Joe... you'll need something with a higher working temp for anything on the engine including an engine cover and radiator cover.

thanks to larry for all his help answering my carbon fiber questions and suggestions.

heres the finished product. notice i had to make my own "soft mount" since i bought the intake used and didnt with a lot of parts.





here's a preview of the carbon fiber engine cover I mentioned earlier:

the TL cover and the stock accord cover (TL cover cracked so I had to mend it)



i didn't want to "waste" the stock cover so I modified it to fit onto the TL cover. getting it ready to fiberglass the seams between the covers.



fiberglassed so it's one whole cover now.



That cover will be wrapped in carbon fiber too. I'm thinking the CF will only insulate the engine and the retained heat will decrease performance, but I doubt it'll be noticeable.
