    New 4-Tec manifold????

    Ok i'm not suprised to see this since myself and another were talking about this a while ago but who made this and why are they selling it? This is an area that i figured could be improved on our skis as i've posted before. Was i wrong. Looks like very nice craftsmanship. Anyone have any answers?

    Looks good, but my advice is to stay away from aluminum intakes. Plastic is much better as it doesn't transfer/hold heat.

    This is true but who made it and are the theories true as far as the whole plenum volume thing? I've been waiting for something like this and to see some results.

    Reducing volume increases throttle response and accleration feels stronger. Same holds true for intercoolers that are too large. Throttle response/accel feels soft.

    I don't like the runners on that aluminum intake. Too short!

    schedule 80... u crazy bro go for it... that stuff is so resistant to heat it's rediculous...

    making a plenum is easy, it's getting composite plastic runners that's difficult, unless ur gonna use the stock runners somehow

    there's been so many intake manifolds done already, yet u hear nothing of exact gains or results... u only see them when they pop up for sale... that's kinda interesting in itself

    I'll make the thing from the ground up. No sweat. Now if my couch wasn't so comfortable i would get up and do it.
