Yeah, still slowly making progress. I haven't updated for a while for a few reasons (Mainly just too busy) but we had a real issue with the last lot of cases we had cast and we are getting another batch done now. I am sorry for the slow progress but I feel I definitely underestimated the technical challenges and I have had to do a lot of very expensive learning.

An update will be coming soon though
As soon as your ready I’ll grab a few engines from you Ricky..

Hey all, I'm not dead and we are still making (SLOW) progress.

We have been tweaking the open venturi induction version to improve flow where possible, have a look at the pics.

We have developed the backplate cap to be able to use a venturi like this but to also be interchangeable for a carb so we can use as many parts as possible between the versions of the engines.

It's slow but we are making progress. have a great Easter all

Venturi, front and back - at the back you see how we have blended the shape to transition to the rest of the induction system for the best possible flow

This illustrates the work we have done to smooth the flow through the entire path
