DUAL PLENUM CROSS RAM SINGLE TB COMING TO MARKET!

Even though I'm not going to leak out too much info, I figured I'd post this thread primarily for the benefit of those who are thinking about getting a FAST intake. Hold onto your money until SEMA.

I know of two companies, each coming out with their own version of a "dual plenum" direct bolt-on intake for our Camaro by this November. I have pictures of both and they are going to be killer. The best part is that they should be at a price point in the neighborhood of the FAST intake.

But even better is that one of the intakes has shown a performance increase of 50HP/50TQ on a stock LS3!!!

I wish I could post pictures! Unfortunately, it's G14 classified as of right now.

Stay tuned!

These are supposedly dyno numbers. The leap of faith didn't seam unreasonable to me as I do know that this Kinsler (picture below) is good for 60hp on a LS7 but they are also $5,000 and not a direct bolt on.

But your right, those would be great gains if they hold true. Stay tuned and we will all find out together.

Is the dual plenum similar to the OSMO dual throttle body except they'll join together for a single throttle body?

I've noticed for the 4cyl imports they make manifolds that have a "stacked" plenum leading to short runners. I would think the same could be done for V8 into a common "stacked" plenum. The shorter runners hopefully keeping it under a stock cowl.

About summer/fall next year I'll be setting up to do a cam swap with head work. Add an intake... hmmmmm. This could be something to consider.

So you are saying true dual plenum not a cross ram type deal? So explain the true benefits of something like this.

Uninterested. Wont ever run right for their target market, and won't make the power they are claiming.

My question is this. Why has no one combined 2 throttle bodies into 1? It would take a lot of machine work but why not? And NO I am not talking about flipping one and using it as a slave.Just a thought

Unfortunately, this is what comes to mind for me when I hear single throttle body, dual plenum, cross ram:
