      For those of you running intake manifolds, how much does this actually help?

      You can have a good welder fab one up for just a few hundred bucks. You'll need to re-use your factory lower manifold though. Ready-made manifolds are $800+

      For MkIV applications it isn't wise to go past 12-15PSI because the plastic will eventually crack depending on how many heat cycles it has. The MkIII manifold is a lot more durable.

      There was alot of debate over short runners years back, people were talking about the turbulance with the longer runners, although this was in the ABA motors. My assumption is when youre boosted, youre forcing air and the best way to do it is as direct as possible.

      it is a 60-1. and the power is unbelieable. roll into the boost in 3rd and the traction is gone. Steve's car is nuts

      Cost was rougly $8,000 and some change for everything.

      It put down 367whp/370tq

      wow that just seems like ALOT of wasted money

      I guess I have just lost my love for VW. After owning an Evo now for about 8 months I just ain't looked back.

      Like this:

      VR6 Coil Pack Alternative

      and to the Evo owner: I'm sure my car is over 400whp now (we'll find out on the 10th : crosses fingers : ) and for maybe another $400 (bigger downpipe and water/meth). Look at it this way...you paid $30k for 300hp to start with; I paid less than that for 400whp when my car came stock w/ 164whp. I'm sure it's no small feat for an Evo to push 400hp, though, I just wouldn't want to be looking over the cylinders when it does

      Granted, someone dumping $8k in an Evo is going to get some sweet results I love those cars, I test drove an Evo VIII when they first came out and wanted one soooo bad but just couldn't afford the entry price.
