Subscribed. Would be interesting if someone could re-fabricate for cheap since top speed is so slow. No offense to top speed. Lol

Ive seen jim's work and its awesome.
However, there are a ton of dynos with ts manifold that show the gains. Its a proven piece for an na car, which would be awesome to copy. Not to mention, that any fabricator could do it if they had the specs, and def in a shorter time frame.
Personally, i have metal scrap at work that i get for free, so all i would need is dimensions and time. More for experience on my part to see if i could do it.

There is one Dyno (that Im aware of) of TS's manifold on an NA car, and it shows questionable gains. FI, no doubt about it, but the NERP manifold is the same, but with Chaz out of commission, there really is no options since TS's customer service sucks as well as the amount of time it takes them to complete an order.

I had their manifold on my NA SVT and it made is ass-slow. you wanna see the "difference" just unplug your IMRC. no difference between the two.

I have installed a ts manifold on a SVT and I had big time fitment issues , they didnt angle the #4 tube , Vac leak at the TB surface had to surface the manifold the welds held up the TB from bolting down firmly , had to retap the fitting holes , the angle for the intake at the TB was more twords the batt then the opening for a good filter fitment

Then once installed and dynoed on a SVT with the same exact boost (320hp) it made very little more HP lower TQ and was not very good for street driving

Go with Jims intake if you feel you need one
