The parties involved in this appear that they have pretty much halted this project... so you'll never see this available from the folks involved with this particular manifold..

Also, here is my wife's best time she ran. It was her 2nd run that night against a Camaro LSX 376 supercharged. She was in the right lane.

Well that sucks. At least the stock intake doesn't heat soak like the LLT's.

I still need to figure out how to launch her car. I had traction control off and on the 3rd run the tires started spinning so I backed off and the damn thing shifted into 2nd. Floored it to get it back into 1st. I think I'm just hitting the throttle too hard, seems like once the car is moving a little bit you can easily floor it then. Also seems like the launches are slowing down for me, I'm able to feel what is happening more.

It's powder coated black now and he says he bought it from a guy in Pennsylvania?

I checked with the people involved with the manifold from the picture. Your friend is:

A) Lying to you

or

B) Has some other manifold, but he does not have the one pictured.

Does he have any pictures of a manifold actually installed on his car?

You should look into it

Did your "friend" actually install this thing, or did he just post a picture of it on facebook taken from the forum that scrming linked to earlier and he is just saying he is excited to see the gains?

I'm saying theres about a 100% chance your "friend" didn't install it.

So that means either:

1) your friend just posted up the picture and you assumed he installed it
2) your friend is lying to you
3) your lying to us about your friend installing something you know he didn't
4) your lying to us and you grabbed the photo and completely fabricated the image with the facebook overlay on top of it.

This is why I never believe ANYTHING this guy says... I cant call BS on the Accord or G35/37 or whatever jap crap he and all his "friends" run at the track. But IF I know ANY one thing, it's Mustangs and specifcally the one I drive. That experimental manifold he posted has been watched around the country in the V6 mustang world for quite some time because it is similar to the Boss manifold that is available to the 5.0.

Long story short, that manifold is useless in its current form... it actually LOST 10rwtq and 60 (SIXTY!) rwhp... yet his "friends V6" runs 12's with it...

I'm sure there is a ton of stuff I dont know. Not everybody who mods their mustang is a part of forums and youtube and stuff...

Got my new tune yesterday and now I need better tires. My tires are spinning all the way through 1st gear now. Can't go to the track this Friday, but will try to go back next Friday so I can do another datalog.

Shesh, no faith. We might be going again next friday, I need to do a Datalog with my new tune. If this tune hits my mods right then I just need to figure out how to get rid of the heatsoaking problem I have at the end.

You missed last night, the DA was around 500 and it was best last night till fall probably.

My friend's SRT8 Charger with I/e and tune's best time at Thunder Valley this season was 13.5 @ 106 mph(been there 3-4 times) on motor, well he went 13.1 @ 111 mph last night. That gain is just in the DA difference.

It was all in jest about retiring the Camaro. Its definitely a beautiful ride. Its just that as far as I remember both you guys are evenly matched mod for mod. Except she has the economy gears. Once that suspension is dialed in and her 60' times drop, I only see that gap getting much larger.


Educate me... While certainly possible, its impractical to change gear ratios on the v6 camaro isn't it?

The headers were the biggest improvement for the Mustang, the 3.7 takes mods better than the LLT.

The v6 auto can only get 3.55. I plan on putting a 1LE differential with the 3.91 gears. Will have to upgrade a lot of parts at the same time though. Chevy really needs to make a v6 performance package for the Camaro.

Coulda sworn there was a mod to battle the heat soaking problem on the v6. Can't remember what it is though. Saw several threads on here talking about it

Here it is magnum. Don't know how much it would help you.

VMAX Black Ice-olator isolates the intake manifold from the direct heat transfer from the cylinder heads and also shields the intake from radiated heat from the engine block

Also the simple IAT sensor relocation:

If I'm hot lapping I'm ok, but as soon as we are sitting in the lanes the heat from my headers raise the IAT. I have the 3/8th ice-olator. I also tried the IAT relocation and my times were extremely awful for some reason. I think I need vents to get the heat out, but I saw the install instructions and don't think I can do that myself.

The Mustang has ceramic headers and a composite intake.

Do you open your hood between runs?

When we park in the pits I do. Most of my temp rise is from waiting in the staging lanes later in the day when the track gets crowded. We get lined up, then they will send the cars with slicks, the bikes will then go (they take forever), then they will let street cars run and some times there is 5 lanes full of them.

I'm trying to find the one time I did do a quick tire spin at the water box and my 60' times were lower, so I may just need to get the engine revved high to suck in cold air. Or I could just ceramic coat my headers.
