      does your car feel like it lost some torque with the short runner on a n/a application?

      absolutely no loss of torque on the butt dyno, deff gain felt up top

    9. 08-26-2004 03:18 PM #9
      awesome man! the shorter runners are much better for higher rpm power. plus its gotta be so nice to be able to get to the plugs/injectors....without the manifold on top of the valvecover

      I only felt torque loss with mine below 2200. Same torque midrange with a nice boost up top.

      Ok, first off i just gotta say, Greg is a genius... The engine pictured above is mine. He just installed this on tuesday, and lemme just say this intake manifold is the best thing my 2.0 has ever seen. I am amazed at the throttle response my car has now. This thing really made a huge improvement, and as for the lower rpm's i honestly didnt notice any real loss at all. But from 2.5 to 3 and up, my car pulls real well now. We havent dyno'd it yet to find out what it actually gained, but we will be soon, hopefully. This thing came out excellent, greg did a great job, and its nice to be able to get right at the plug wires, and fuel rail now. I should be getting more pics of my whole car up soon. Thanks again greg!

      Here's a pic of my HKK Shorty Intake. Mines finally going on soon for my all motor setup, notice the VR6 TB.

      Great work, thanks again Greg

      nice aaron! i lost your contact, and was wondering if you got the motor together yet

    22. 09-24-2004 05:22 AM #22
      How do you know how big to make it?
      Isn't it better to make a tip at the last runner like the 1.8T?

      <----Noob asking questions.

      With the intake on the passenger fender side, did you reuse the stock throttle cable? I am working on a similar intke but wasn't sure if the stock cable would reach. What about the dipstick? Did you have to modify that at all? Thanks...

      Stock Dipstick and a VR6 Throttle Cable (Passat maybe??)

      I used a Passat VR6 tb cable too. Dipstick clears just fine. I just got mine together on Thursday, started on the first try , I just have to readjust my solid lifters & I'll be getting on the dyno.
      here's some pics

      Looks very nice! Were there velocity stacks incorporated? Mine has them along with a 15 degree taper from the mouth to the tail.

      Made by Joshua Murray, not me.

      Thank you Volkswagen2NR, That's what I'd call, "a true cold air intake". I'm going to make a ram air scoop that'll keep the rain & weather out.
      TDI VentoDave, yes Velocity stacks are in my intake aswell. They're rolled steel that protrude into the plenum. I don't have a pic handy but they look like trumpets.
      No taper though.
      Hey I like that serpentine belt setup, can it be setup to run with just the waterpump & alternator? I have no need for power steering or AC. thank you

      Yes, you can get the non-A/C serp belt from the dealer or I got mine from Futrell. I am not using PS or AC as well. Not necessary on a race car.
