Default FS: Custom 1.6L Intake Manifold

I'm thinking about putting my setup back to where it was at the end of 07, less big, more street (stock IM, smaller IC, possibly smaller compressor). I don't have the motor to really justify the IM, as I'll never have the ***** to run more than 230rwhp.

This was welded by Tim over at BEGi, I came up with the design, provided parts and they made it happen for me.

It utilizes the stock TB but due to clearance issues the stock FPR cannot be used, so I'll include the adjustable FPR and adapter I've been using.

The throttle cable bracket was welded in a bad position, so a new one needs to be fabricated or you shorten your cable and attach a new cable end.

Looking for $400 shipped to the lower 48. It's not pulled yet, and it won't be until after any sale.

I have a ****-ton more pictures if you really need them. There are two vacuum ports under the manifold, I've been using a vacuum block to share everything, not included.

probably never. I'm always going to be limited with the stock motor, I'm happy with the 200-230hp range, theres no reason to have some of the equipment I have for a semi DD street car that sees a few autoxes and maybe a track day a year.

I removed it today. I had to retain the FPR because I couldn't find my OEM one. I'll include the vacuum block I was using however.

new price $375 shipped with vacuum block.

You guys are killing me! $375 shipped for a custom IM and not any interest? Just FWIW, after removing it and driving around I could immediately notice a loss of some top-end pull...

It did increase spool time a few 100 rpm, but also increased his top end. All as expected.
