Aren't turbo runners shorter than N/A ones thus giving you more clearance on the right hand side of your engine bay?
Have any flow tests been done on these to see which runners are better?
Do you lose any structural integrity by grinding the welds down?
I reckon one ground down and painted would look good also.
Brendan, how did you find the ft with yours? any dramas or leaks?

No leaks, I just bought a thinner battery as my cooler pipes go right downthru where the origianl battery position was, also had to move the power steering pump.

I am very happy with mine.

Got mine the other day and was polished to a mirror finish. Having bougt 2 others in the past 3 years in the past i must admit the newer plenums have much improved in many ways. From the material used to the trumpets and even down to the welding and the milling at the base things have come a long way and i recon you are now on a winner Jamie.

These are a great plenum guys for the price. I used one years ago, jamie was more than helpful and the car went on to run 10.5 @ 130mph with a simple setup.

tuned length, makes each runner the same length, flows more air though the bell mouth than no trumpet at all, proven fact, take a look at some of the big dollar manifolds out there, all have a raised bell mouth intake, f1, indy cars, touring cars,etc

They'd be absolute poo without bellmouths...knew a guy years ago that made his own plenum and didnt use bellmouths...was very doughy and unresponsive.

hi
Ok thank you for that , so i gather the 2 center runners are the shortest as in cylinders 3 and 4 intake runners and then 2 and 5 cylinders right up to the longest runners 1 and 6 cylinders.

Judging from the pictures it seems there is some shrouding of the trumpets to there neighboring ones or is the picture deceiving.

Nice work the plenums you fabricate

Just made 378 rwkw on 23psi, pump fuel today
Another interesting thing, is the map sensor for the microtech is
is spot on with one of these manifolds all the time, and on the bresciani plenums, it fluctuates everywhere around the mid range, air flow is a funny
thing
cheers
