Here are a few pics to wet your appetite. This manifold will be an easy 10-15hp @ the wheels. The production version, which will be available soon, will have all hookups except EGR. We have had a few test parts on cars for a while now with excellent results.
Also shown here is our new 70mm race throttle body. This TB has no idle air bypass and is designed for aftermarket intake manifolds.

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">1st of all its "whet"
second of all what are these gains based on? as in what other parts does my car need to have in order to see these kind of gains realistically? i am fairly sure its not on a stock engine.

and can you give us a "guesstimate" on pricing?
cause im not sure i would like to pre order one without having any idea of pricing!

This manifold is ideal for those with all of the bolt ons including cams and those with a ported cylinder head. This is not designed for stock cars as the stock one works fine. These would also be ideal for turbo setups. The part is pretty beefy so boost should not be problem. Also heat transfer from the head is next to nothing. So consider that it has a phenolic spacer built in.


There are many people out there running crower stage 2's with or with our a ported head these people should see gains of 10hp or more.

We haven't really seen a loss in "low-end." It actually will make higher peak torque numbers.

Will this work on automatic equipped foci's?
And does this include everything a person will need to hook-up and go, meaning no custom fabrication to get it intalled???
just wandering cause if it's a pretty decent price, this is definantly on my list for santa

Nader, give us a ball park figure on the price....please

Will it have any negative effects on daily driving, with the 70mm TB too? Does it come with new piping from TB to the MAFS, as you've changed the TB location?

End of December you say... *counts pennies*

Have any sustained high speed tests with this yet?
I am having problems with 5th gear above 3500 rpm power.
Not really looking to upgrade the cams yet but if needed I will. This looks VERY interesting.
What long term testing have you done?

As far as the automatic applications are concerned, I would need someone to come up here so we could test fit one on a car. Exactly how far back is the motor.

the engine is mounted about 2 inches closer to the firewall...people with the JRSC had to mod vacuum lines for it to fit...

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Yes, that would be alot better. Unless, like I posted before, you include new pipes from the TB to MAFS.

Is it at all possible to make a mirror version of this like Naz suggested? it would be good for my turbo setup as well... how much further back does this manifold extend than the stock one? I have a pipe behind the stock one...
