      Take a good look at the LRI, I am having fabricated. *Long runners similar to the USRT unit I could not afford. *This should really wake up my Built ABA w/ 270 cam, and sealed airbox with cold air feed and velocity inlet in the lower grille.

      original thread.

      I cannot wait till this is finished.

      Also going on this motor, is a polished G60 Valve cover, t3/t4 .50 cold side. .63 hot side. and LRI dual plenum manifold w/ integrated AWIC with icebox and Bosch cobra Pump.

      Will be using C2's 42lb. fueling kit.

      I cannot take credit for the fabrication.

      Should have the manifold installed by December.

      Thinking of doing something similar

      Any thoughts

      Thanks guys, my built aba with scat rods and ross pistons is making either rod knock or piston slap noises so I'm gonna have to rebuild or swap in a new bottom end before I boost it.

      I have a spare motor on a stand and am gabbing the down pipe for my mk1 as well.

      If anyone wants to do some good reading check out Bentley publishers maximum boost by corky bell of bell inter coolers.
