Thank you to @martymil for providing us our first back to back results, stock vs our N54 Port Injection Billet Intake Manifold on a 1M!

1M - FF IM.jpg


First dyno is a direct swap of intake manifolds, absolutely NO changes except for intake manifolds

And with a few flash tweaks/minor retune

Less power??

All the other intake manifolds :tearsofjoy:

Red lines on both graphs, before with stock IM. Blue lines after FF manifold install, first graph no tuning changes, second graph with tuning, no boost change. HP and torque both up. Look at the plots and the area between the red and the blue, that's your gain. I believe my manifold is the only one actually gaining anything on it's own. Roughly 20hp on a 400hp car. Add more power/boost and see what happens, for example, Tony's N54 record 910wtq through my intake manifold.

Nice improvements. I'm sure ported intake runners and larger turbos make up for that drop at the very top. For stock turbos this shows a significant increase in air flow.

Nice gains under the curve. @A4RingedONE8T don't worry about people saying "less power" was made. Most people only focus on peak power and don't realize that the areas under the curve Are just as, if not more important than the peak power

This a stock turbo(s) car?

Its running rb classics

Our aussie dynos read a lot lower so around 400+rwk on american dynos

The car ran [email protected] mph on 98ron pump gas or your equivalent is 95ron at the local dragway on a stock manifold and before the coils where done, should be little faster now

How is the new intake being aluminium,holding the heat? Do you feel the air intake would be hotter on the intake? It's nice tho,over the design

Not like that at all. The FabFactory mani is in a league of its own. Every part of its construction is specifically designed and not just thrown together.
