i've been offered an inlet manifold and plenum from a "super-boss" which has been bought from south africa from a well known nation-wide company in my area, what they are wanting to do is develop the manifold and a software upgrade for an xe but don't have one to work on, they said that they'll need to have the car for 3-4 days to install it and from then on they can sell it as a unit for xe'd customers.
i've seen the inlet manifold and its basically the same idea as "Mininuts" from aluminium with a 75mm hole on the right hand side for the throttle. what are the main advantages to this? is it not just a more direct and less restrictive inlet manifold? and how much extra power can this give? they are going to upgrade the engine management at the same time too. when i said "so it'll be poor mans throttle bodies" the guy replyed "mmm, more like wise mans throttle bodies"
also, what would you say this is worth? i'm going back on friday as he's currently working on a price and a plan of action.
