Thanks for the encouragement. The Valdez was a long time ago, but still a good descriptor.

Porsche 944 turbo Brembos. It's nearly a bolt on deal on a Super.

the only person with a fully custom intake manifold was myself. My buddy pat and I did it over a weekend. I previously had dv8's box manifold which was like 5" runners and a square box plenum. I made basically a mail box sized plenum, and made the runners i think 18" with bell mouths and added a q45 throttle body.

I'm happy with the work and results, the intake runner lenght picked up so much torque my previous dyno at 19psi and a bigger turbo was 577whp/501wtq. Now on 16psi with break up, smaller turbo it made 510whp and 598wtq.

Sounds pretty cool. I'd love to see some pictures but I couldn't find you by searching on that email. When you say you are the only person with a custom intake manifold, you must mean in a Legend chassis. Buzzard posted picks of his custom intake a few years ago, but it's in an off road race buggy.

Hi carwhisperer, I asked you a question on the ecu tuning thread. I recall some years ago Matt/SR5guy released software on the forum for tuning using eproms. As I recall he also went on to implement real time tuning for the Legend's platform, although he did not release this.

Last contact I had with Matt he said he had a job programming for a company making tuning software solutions.

Matt, if you are out there I need to talk to you.

Done!

I also sent you a friend request. That manifold looks really cool. I'm sure you considered a lot of options before doing that much work.
