Hey 1st post wooo been a lurker for far to long :P
ok i have heard this vics manifold is there to give more top end power by opening a resonance chamber at around 5200rpm, i have heard it also shortened the air passege into the engine but this is not true from what i can see on the manifold .
this vics system works on vacuum to remain closed at idle and low rpm then as the throttle is 'WOT' the lack of vacuum and higher rpm will cause the vics to open.
i am installing a turbo to the car which is going to eliminate the vics from working due to no vacuum in the manifold i have 4 options but don't really know which one to go for ....
1. install an actuator electronicly controlled so the vics opens at 5200?
2. do 1. + gut the top of the manifold so the vics is used as a shorter distance for the air to flow?
3. close the vics and never use again ?
4. totally gut the manifold so there is no vics at all? (never seen this done so a bit weary of it )
vics top of manifold gutted (number 2 on what to do)
and for those who thought i was on about viks here is a tip ,, rub it on places you dont want your cat to scratch or your cat and dog peeing.... also if you put it on yourself it stops horses trying to **** you ... never know could be useful one day
