Here is mine set up.

I am using the turbo runners, so had to go with a thinner battery.

does everything that is connected up to the standard plenum, connect up to your jd plenum?, or can it be made so that the breather hoses are kept and also the cold start up system?

also do thet fit up to the na runners?

If so, have you got any pics/prices?

Thanks

Finally fitted mine! Pretty happy with it overall.. cant beat it for the price.

Only two gripes :

1) Deep markings from what appears to be vice grips or monkey wrench that has scared the alloy where it looks like you have gripped it to bend or hold it to cut or something.

2) None of the threads were cleaned at all, and it took about 40 minutes to clean all the thread holes and slowly putting in bolts to clean them up. Bolt holes all lined up bar one which was out by 0.1% probably, but had to basically take the whole inlet manifold off to fit the plenum to get good enough pressure on the bolt to force it on a slight angle at first into the hole.

Two minor issues that can easily be overcome next time (i would want these issues dealt with if i was to resell them to a customer though).

Would recommend them to anyone!

Most custom made parts never fit perfect, its the nature of modifiaction, let alone what is probably the cheapest plenum top available on the market, of which most people do what I have done with the 5 or 6 i've used, and just drill the hole in the lower half of the runner the next size up, stick six rags in the ports to stop swarf getting in, and job done with no fuss. It would be impossible to do absolutely perfect unless they were cnc drilled and tapped.

Tappin ally is a bitch, it galls on itself, you just gotta use a really sharp tap, hence the holes looking "dirty". And the jaw marks I would imagine are from the plenum being gripped in a vice when its milled on the bottom so it seals properly. There is no other way of gripping it to mill it, and if it wasn't milled, like they never used to be, people would be wingeing about them not sealing properly and not being flat. Just buff them out!
