whynotthinkwhynot Cool deal- so I suppose that was the only running problem? If you keep an eye out in our Buy, Sell, Trade forum, you should eventually be able to find someone selling SVT intake parts. I don't hear of those manifolds cracking often- you're the first one- congratulations!

Nyberg All cleared up fiberglass and the right stuff gasket sealer and we are good to go.

whynotthinkwhynot LOL well they will learn eventually- right? Now you can teach him the importance of knowing the emergency start method in case he floods another EFI engine or needs to turn over an engine without using fuel.

Nyberg Intake, as it blew completely in half, hard enough to knock the shift cable out of its holder. I think my son filled his pants when it went off.

whynotthinkwhynot On the intake itself or one of the flexible connectors? CFM makes polyurethane replacements for those rubber parts that you might want if that's where the problem is.

Nyberg I am ordering an intake in the meantime I pieced my old one together and thought i had it sealed up. Finally decided to yard it out and you are right there is a small leak along one of my joints. Just did not want to believe I missed it. Anyways looks like mystery solved and I will let you know how it goes

whynotthinkwhynot It's most likely that one of the rubber tubes was damaged. You should remove those and inspect them. One might even be loose, those can be a pain. The symptoms you're giving are typical of massive vacuum leaks.

my_beautious_ZX3 could some of the manifold shrapnel gotten blown/sucked into the intake ports?

Nyberg Timing is bang on and VCT is set, new plugs as well.

Slo86GT Cam timing? Had a Nissan SR20 that was 2 teeth off and wouldn't run without the throttle half open, and ran even better (lol) when the air compressor was blowing directly into the throttle body. Don't ask me, I dunno why the hell we tested that.
