Peugeot 106 S1 - Carbon Fibre Bits! - Bonnet & Inlet Trumpets

The goal is to produce an ultimate light-weight bonnet for racing purposes. The Original Peugeot 106 Rallye bonnet weighs 12.4kg (including catch, cable and hinges). As such nearly 10kgs can be saved by fitting the racing lightweight ebd Carbon Fibre Bonnet. If you are interested in one then email us and we will be happy to give you a quote for your specific requirements.

Carbon Fibre Inlet Trumpets to suit Yamaha R6 Throttle Bodies
Inlet Trumpet Mould     Carbon Fibre Inlet Trumpet

The above pictures show the ebdcarbon fibre inlet trumpets as designed for the Yamaha R6 2004 Throttle Bodies. The Picture on the Left shows a cutaway of the three piece moulding system, and the picture on the right is CAD model of the finished design. The beauty of the ebd Mould system is that it is modular, meaning that we can tune the inlet tract length to suit the required rpm range. Here, on the PPP-106 project we are making 40mm & 50mm long inlet trumpets, so we have the option to play with the setup.
