I got the manifold on lastnight. Holy low end torque loss batman!!! But also, Holy omg high end power! It feels like im driving an s2k that has a monster kick on top. I have a leak in the manifold though because the flange warped ever so slightly when the jackass welded it so i have to get another gasket. I also need to get the intake pipe welded so theres only one coupler and make a new throttle body bracket.





Im also gonna route the water line under the manifold as it makes everything look cleaner under the hood

Why not have the reroute pipe tacked on to the manifold, so it's not just flopping around? That's what I wanna do. Putting it underneath makes it a pain to access, should you ever have to.

thanks. So after driving around for a few days I can say that this mani is more for track usage mainly because the power really comes on now around 5krpm and up. Not daily driver fun so Im gonna be taking it off the car and trying what i dont think anyones done and thats just put on a stock NA manifold. Its the cheapest thing for now and well see how it works. Cant be any worse for daily driving then what i have on now. Plus I already have the manifold.

Couldn't you cut off runners from another manifold and weld them in to get the length back?

i modified the bracket i made and now my idle sits where i want it to. Also, i notice that before, my throttle plate wasnt opening all the way. I remedied that. Im picking up the proper throttle body gasket on my way home and putting that in. There might be some hope for this mani yet...

With all the money you have dumped on that car you could probably have two MSMs.
