K Series Airboxes (Autoteknix/Scouse) news

Hi all,

Bernard Scouse told me this morning he's sold the moulds and design rights to Eliseparts a couple of months ago and they will be in production with the full range of airboxes in the next week or two.

They are making the Caterham boxes, R400/500 and Jenvey body flavour.

Bernard's working closely with them and the first parts out of the moulds are of excellent quality.

Their email is [email protected], contact there is Geary, the owner.

Cheers,

Roger

I have been liaising with Bernard and Geary while materials and components are being evaulated. I expect to be able to do a test install some time soon to make sure that it all works as expected.

Hi Dave,

I spoke to Bernard on a few occasions regard airboxes for Duratec Caterhams..... do you know if these are more realistic likelyhood of these being on the radar now..?

Today Geary from Eliseparts came over and we did a trial fit of the new Caterham K series airbox kit to a Carterham I have here.

There were a few adjustments to be made , some dimensions to alter and some small parts to design and manufacture so it will be a few weeks before all the modifications that are Caterham specific are incorporated and a working prototype is available. The kits looks pretty good and some of the parts have been redesigned and are beautifully crafted.

I will keep you all informed of progress.

Duratec airboxes.. It's unlikely as the molds are specifically for K series engine and Geary's main business is with the Lotus Elise, the Caterham airboxes are being made as the majority of the parts are common with the Elise airbox. I don't think that Caterhams and Duratecs are his area of expertise.

The final incarnation of the new airbox kit for jenvey TBs will be coming over for evaluation next week with the intention of producing them for sale over the next 3-4 weeks (although as with all things there may be a little slippage). I will report back as soon as the airbox has been examined for fit.
