The CVP manifold was kind of a bust. With the right tune you can make it work, but you will most likely lose low end. To my knowledge the CVP setup hasn't been dynoed with a UM tune.
You won't make 300 wheel without your 100 shot nitrous.
So i was thinking about doing sm mods to my swaped r32 gli. I want to accomplish a minimum 300 hp wth n/a if possible(new the 3.2 engine. I know its not really possible on the 2.8 w/ out FI). I was thinking about doing a full custom exhaust with 2.5" downpipe and 3" straightpipe to muffler, a neuspeed cai or similar, schrik 268/264 cams, light weigh flywheel, stage 1 clutch that holds max 375tq, possibly bigger injectors, a tune from Jeff at UM, possible had work, and a possible 100 shot if im not happy wih the end amount of power.
I have now come accrose the long neck short runner CVP intake manifold. Iminterested to know if ths would help me help at all. I have read that this intake maks you lose alot of your low end power and I would rather avoid that. Has anyone had sucess with this mani on an n/a car with like mods or could anyonetell me if this would be sucessful with these mods?
Best of luck to you but you won't be making 300 Wheel HP NA with what is available.
R32 is around 200. A 2.8 s like 176. Some correct me if I'm wrong
I am not sure exactly how much power you would lose on the low end but it also depends on what you want to do with the car. The low end power will get you going faster but will level off sooner while the top end will accelerate longer. Might not be 100% how it works all the time but that is sort of how I remember it.
