Love the X51 Manifold. You can really see a difference in the dyno chart. Much better air delivery.Here are some engine porn pix of the X51 intake manifold modified for use on my 4.0L turbo. Vision has done this before for a supercharged engine. I can't believe the welding done to alter the throttle body mount angle. Omar is a magician with the MIG.
I'm really interested in seeing what the power curve will look like with the X51, larger throttle body and better headers.
Looking forward to seeing you and the car on track this weekend.The car is ready for a DE this weekend at auto club speedway. Attached is a before and after dyno on low boost. Even thought the latest mods (collector style headers, X51 manifold and larger throttle body) where made with durability in mind, there is a very nice power gain above 5,500 RPM. We will dyno at high boost next week.
He's got a turbo setup, just guessing, but to me that would mean Diverdog's now got a lot of hardware tied into, and at least partly hanging off, or at least onto. his intake manifold, connected by somewhat less than as flexible as the old OEM plumbing, boost rated silicone hoses & clamps. Shock travels; the intake is no longer completely independent of the the exhaust plumbing etc. Big bumps are going to pull on a lot of things.how in the world did the pot hole cause it to crack? eeehhh, I would be pissed
