As for TB, I'm wondering if I should stick with the stock or go with a bigger one? I am just hoping those who do these tests be consistent with the TB selection too
If I test out Gotpsi?'s manifold it will be the manifold + ported ls1 TB vs stock TB and stock manifold (99').

Im hoping to dyno on a static setup, so the results should be useful for built engines. Really no point in getting a IM if you are on the stock block anyways.

I think it would be cool to test an IM on a ~220whp GT2560R car. See if we can get an easy 250whp/210wtq setup that's safe for a stock motor since the peak torque is so low.

I could do all the testing and tuning on our dyno, but would need all the Intake Manifolds so I could fabricate piping etc..

Do you have a 1.8 or a 1.6? Or both?

I'm getting some dyno time in the next few weeks. But you guys probably aren't interested in 1.6 results.

I'm trying to search and see if Brain ever made any test pulls....hmm. I think he was running on a busted rear-end and a shot block when he did, still managed to make gains though.

Luckily I have some friends in the area, so I can find a garage to swap out the manifolds if you guys would like some before and after numbers.
