    What is best way to strengthen intake manifold on rxp

    Looked in the how too section but could not find how members are putting rivets or bolts on their intake manifold to strengthen them up?

    has anyone with a charger or do they even make a charger big enough to split a manifold? im sure you have your own reasons for wanting it, just asking

    I thought the stock oem plastic unit would hold 22psi. At 1000ft of elevation I made 18.9psi @8700 last year. I'd sure like to know if I'm close to popping the dang thing.
