Here's a video from the previous owner. The car acts about the same (though a hair quieter without the ITB noise). If I take it out to another autox I'll take some video next time.

I pulled the ITBs because:
1. They're impossible to make the car run decently at anything less than WOT with
2. The gas mileage was terrible -- mixing at anything less than WOT is crappy with short runner ITBs
3. The snout hood was hideous, IMO

this car is awesome. I am one of the six from m.net on the v6 swap

i love that you have taken the car and cleaned up up as far as a driver. Also it sucks to see you sell it. But i hope you get every penny. It is an awesome car. i cannot wait to drive mine

To the OP, can you take a picture of the firewall side of the intake manifold? I'd like to see the cutaway of the OEM manifold on that side. Do you have any pics of when you built that intake? Thanks!

Lol yea those are all good reasons, seems like a great car, i'm sure if it were tuned correctly (sounds as if it absolutely was), it should get at least 27mpg now if driven correctly. Good luck with the sale, if I had 15k lying around I'd jump on this. You should definitely make some recent videos, in car, walkaround, etc

Yep ok that looks good to me, I am probably going to copy that if I can fit my tinyarse LS injectors in there. That should save me a few weeks of intake mani fab time that I can put off for next winter maybe.

Good job, thanks for the link.

ITBs suck for street cars. They're fine for race cars, but give terrible gas mileage and crappy mid range throttle response/drivability. So, I pulled em off.
