Default Porsche 928 intake manifold

My landlord has a extra 928 intake manifold sitting around and I thought maybe it might be fun to try to build a custom intake manifold or something. I'm not assuming it would work, just asking.

Any thoughts?

Clean it up, bead blast it or polish.

Resell it on ebay?

Sure it would work. You should leave it like it is and hook up both the intake and exhaust side so it draws in twice as much air.


If you start another dumbass thread on this forum I will ban you for 365 days. Is that clear? And I will be the one deciding if it is a dumbass thread or not. You are cluttering up our forum with garbage.

Maybe it would have been better to put this into the BS section?

Maybe it would have been better to put it in one of the other bullshit threads you have started instead of starting yet another one.

Maybe it would have been better if your pops pulled out? Stupid on your level can not be fixed.

I had tried to think of something better to say, but I think sixshooter pretty much said it all

Or at least have the courtesy to contain all your dumb questions and ponderings in the ramble thread, where you can literally talk about whatever you want, and which was basically created for stuff like that.

PROPS and THANK YOU Steve!

I suspect he has this forum confused with M.net, where in just his first month he started 22 threads! Of course, when I commented on it then, I was soundly chastised by the wine and cheesers for even mentioning that he should throttle back. He's now amassed at least 104 threads over there.
