Here is my version of a SRI, I asked about your intakes and nobody answered...so i made one. It took me half a day to remove runners, and a half a day to re-attach. Oct. 6 is my dyno day, just on startup it responded quicker up the tach, and it feels better below 2500 (even though thats not what I expected). I guess well see... next is the mass air meter...

i love the way you did that!

any leaks?
what epoxy did you use to reseal it?
how did you cut it so clean?


i ported through the TB hole, but i did a piss-poor job - i wanna cut it open like yours and redo it...

Wait, I'm confused, did you gut the interior?

No leaks, I am sure I could put boost to it without problems, it doesn't feel fragile at all. I cut it with a hack saw blade so I could go slow and not melt the plastic. And yes it is gutted on the inside, go outside and put a flashlight down your intake and you will see the difference.

i had an additional idea last night about cutting holes in the roof of the intake...like the inside roof...to further shorten the runners. i can only suggest this for built motors however as it would result in serious low end torque loss...

i may still try it though...

thanks for the post back...i might go home this week and try it...or on my next set of vacation days...

though i just have one more...what epoxy did you use?

I guess I'm not familiar enough with the way the intake loos to see whats going on here. I can see the one looks like it's been cut down but I don't understand the gutting the inside part?

I am very curious to see if the top end takes a HP / Torque hit on this.

awesome. I didn't want to do mine like that because I was nervous about the expansion/contraction pulling apart the intake at the seam. Considering the intake is under "pressure" at 15 psi, I didn't want to chance it. I want to get it redyno'd but it's on the bottom of my list of things to do.

Did you take a look at the intake gaskets to compare to the heads? I found on mine, they were constricting the intake ports by ~1mm on all sides.

Also curious if you have a before dyno to compare. I think you'll see some nice gains from 3000 on at the expense of the <3000 torque. The better low end/throttle response is due to the (now) larger intake plenum volume.
