BYE BYE Skunk2 manifold, there's a new dog it town.........

has anybody heard of the new aebs intake manifold? i'm sure some have, and its shaking up the scene with decent dyno #'s and wicked price.

it makes about 8-10whp over skunk2/itr and does not lose a gram of tq. check it out and leave some opinions.

Heard of it but different intake manifolds perform depending on the mods done to the car.

Reading what an article in a magazine and what their HP claims are of the product don't necessarily translate to your specific application.

When the JG IM came out it claimed an increase of 41 HP!!! While true they did not mention it was in a Forced Induction application.


You could conceivable get 7-8 HP difference by doing other mods rather than changing your whole IM. But if you are getting a great deal on the AEBS one then go for it.

...

the dyno that i saw was tested on an ITR, so 8-10whp on an ITR is very impressive. yeah you can get 6-8hp elsewhere, but we all know that it takes alot $. the point i'm tryiong to make is, if this intake makes 8-10whp over a skunk2, then, you're gain in the three most important area. whp, wtq and money. this intake is $254CDN, that's about $200 cheaper than the skunk2.

barbie LOL

i could probably get some piping and some scrap metal and weld together an intake manifold that would increase my cars performance too....

I'd still want a carbon fiber intake manifold from a dude super interested in flow and fuel atomization...

How would CF Manifold hold up to heat? Doesn't the engine bay get quite hot?

it's been holding up just fine apparently... the manifold doesn't get hot because of the gaskets that are heat transfer resistant.... or something like that

So they are lighter and heat resistant. Nice

how little you know... flow ability is the most important part of a intake manifold and Larry (a.k.a the old one) is the most flow obsessed person I've seen....

So how does CF increase flowability? It has bigger diameter or what?

CF doesn't do that at all ... it's about the design .. the shape of the air passenges.... diameter is not as important as dynamics....

this intake manifold only seems to be useful for FI or juice applications, it mentions nothing for an NA application and both Skunk2 and the ITR were meant more towards the NA application, so to compare the three manifolds together in the same test of either NA or FI, the results are obviously going to fair better on one or the other
