    This is a DOCRace prototype manifold which will be getting the cast treatment and some improvements in the $1200-$1500 range.

    Here is what he has to say:

    And here is a mustang dyno on the IM:

    Who has/will be stepping up to the plate for this?

    I just don't think my 5862 setup qualifies enough power to need this. I know most people running a ST setup run a bigger turbo though, and as we've seen, the power difference between a 6266, 6466, and bigger aren't very much and I believe this starts to be one of the limiting factors. So the want should be high for this.

    I think it is the aesthetic combined with the elimination of the PI injector plate. I think this supersedes the sandwhich plates we've been using. At least, for those who don't mind spending a little extra.

    I agree, it gets rid of some of the things that aren't exactly "flawless" but I do think once you hti a certain power point, our stock intake manifold becomes a choking point.

    I'm curious how many 'signups' DOCRace got. I'm curious how feasible this $1200 price is.
     
  8. Using the sandwiched PI setups currently being used brings about increased number of potential failures and boost leaks. Not saying it's likely to happen but there's always a chance. This is brilliant!

    When he first posted it he said about 2 weeks.

    Ah the famous "2 weeks"

    no shade btw lol
     
  15. I'm in, let's do it!
     
  16. What are the 6 ports ontop of the runners for? Meth?

    I know they were using it for nitrous, not sure if meth is a possibility too.
     
  18. I'll definitely be using it for port meth injection
     
  19. Would PI meth even be worth while if you're already running PI e85? I wanted to try and find a way to stack PI e85 and nitrous but I'm not sure what would work best for implementing that.

    People don't like nitrous but personally I do. I think the issue you run into again is fuel unless you intend on a more complex wet system with fuel cell or something along those lines. I'd like to run a small shot.
