Re: which intake manifold?

That is actually a very good question because it may not be obvious. I believe the difference is that the one from Rudy's is just a ported stock manifold that has had its ports machined to help with airflow. However the tubes that the manifold bolts go through are still there. Whereas, with doug's intake, he machines the bolt tubes from the manifold as well as the ports and adds a cover to each side to seal the manifold. hope this helps and makes sense.

Re: which intake manifold?

Yea I would definitely and actually plan to get my manifold from Doug and the reason is because he actually removes the restrictions in the manifold and provides data for his product.

Re: which intake manifold?

I think lenzhotrod was referring to info like doug provides for his intake and I dont think Rudy provides that info unless I missed something.

Re: which intake manifold?

Doesn't Rudy sell Elite's manifold?

Have a look at Elite's...it looks alot like the Gogo manifold, but the top is welded back on afterwards.

Re: which intake manifold?

I hadn't seen the Elite manifold yet. Thanks for the link Ivan. It looks like the lids are welded on and you bolt it down through the holes on top? What plugs the holes? Pipe plugs?

One benefit of Doug's intake is having a little more room for twins in the valley. Tough to tell, but Elite's might be the same way.
