High Flow Intakes

What are the gains to be had from these? For those that have them were they worth the money, any noticable difference in SOTP or on a dyno?

Thanks,

Re: High Flow Intakes

The main benefit that I see is that when you're running a lot of boost and cranking down on the clamps to keep from blowing boots the aluminum intakes won't collapse on you.

Course you can also just cut off the thin factory inlet and reweld a thicker tube in it's place and solve the problem that way as well.

If you were talking about an air filter then nevermind.

Re: High Flow Intakes

Nope you got it right I am talking about the intake manifold on top of the heads.

Re: High Flow Intakes

I'd say probably now worth it if you already have the 3" intake from the factory unless your smushing them like Charlie said, or you have a '94.5/'95 with 2" intakes and you need(want) to upgrade then get a set with the unused holes welded up. They will be strong enough to not lift off the head at high boost either with the 2 missing holes/bolts

Re: High Flow Intakes

A constant torque clamp doesn't really have to be that tight. Van Haisley told me that the clamps on their trucks are torqued to spec, because that is where they hold the best and that when they were over torquing them that they were having issues


. . . as long as the boots don't rip apart.

Re: High Flow Intakes

Everything on my truck is a T bolt now... all the same size and stainless. I know how to TQ them properly, its when someone else does some work on my truck for me that it gets fubared...

He knows who he is...

Thanks for installing the fuel system...

Is that fun to take on and off?? Looks like it might be better than the boot setup actually

Nope...it's boring. Undo the v-bands and just take it off. No fun and games fighting with boots.
