    I love your work, but I have always felt that the rear cylinders were the ones that needed help. At WOT that is. The energy built up pushes the air past the rears.

    I dream of what can't be. Individual equal length runners(180) and a good size plenum.
    I'm hoping to help distribution across all 6 cylinders, along with increasing flow, I think what I have here will accomplish what I want quite well, and I intend to dyno the car with a ported stock intake, and my modded intake.
    Sometimes I think the surest sign that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is that none of it has tried to contact us.

    I get bummed out every time I type "titties" in the search bar and nothing pops up....

    Built not bought, because bolt-ons don't...

        • My biggest problem is grasping what all goes on in the intake. I know what happens in there, but I just don't know it all interacts. Do accustic waves do anything to pressure waves?

            I'm sure they have some effect, but I don't think it's significant enough to justify concern.

            • To my knowledge 5 and 6 cylinder are the ones that go lean at WOT or at least 80% and the same goes for oiling
              IDK why but the 3500 block has oilers on that end Some correct me if I am wrong

              • Actually its #4 and #6... ask me how I know :P

                • forged pistons FTW.

                  • at 10psi, forged pistons are a band aid (and an expensive one). Fixed the tune and whatever else that was wrong made more sense :P

                      I got a good deal on mine, along with a set of rods.

                      • Yeah of course nothing wrong with forged pistons, but I'm just saying that the tune is very important, cause the same thing could have happen with forged pistons, they would have just lasted 10 secs longer :P

                        • the tune is very important, I never said it wasn't, and cast pistons can only take so much, esp when you start turning up the wick, and really spinning it...

                                sounds like a tuning issue to me.
