I'm waiting to hear back from the people to see their results. I've sent them out to 3 so far, all different One 1.6 and 2 99 headded cars. One is a NA and one NB.

I am pretty sure there is a loss of low end power, but top end must be pretty good.

I browsed the whole thread, very nice work and cool website, Kudos for you!

Only thing about your website, for some reason it is super slow on the refresh rate, and there are a few dead links.

I admittedly didn't read the entire thread...

Any chance of having full emissions compliance on a '99? EGR, IAC, and everything else? If so, I'm interested.

The web site is a work in progress, I get stuff up when I can. As far as adding EGR and IAC, it can be done, and I still don't know if it would be emissions compliant. Definatly not here in CA.

Ill post up the dyno results as soon as I get them. Or if I ever get around to dynoing my car Ill post that up as well, I just dont have a before graph, but I believe that the torque cure will speak for its self on any setup.

I promise I will dyno my setup when it is done, and then again when I have my built engine and I actually need a manifold like this.
