Ported intake manifold

Well, finally got enough miles on the car to dyno test. (LS3 6 speed manual) Pretty happy with the results Stock- 380.17rwhp/380.42rwtq. Did a few runs to make sure testing was accurate, it didn't vary more than 1 hp/tq between highest and lowest pull. We had a manifold that has been ported with some pretty good flowbench results. Decided that we should test it out. Worked really well. 390.68rwhp/386.21rwtq. At this point there has been no computer programming done. We have a FAST manifold coming for testing later this week, we will see how it does against the ported stock one.

Nice numbers,It is amazing to see the amount of HP that can be tapped from these engines.

I wanted to have 1500 miles for break in, but it was taking too long. I did this at 750 miles. I simply broke it in hard. I ran it to redline often and drove around no more that third gear a lot. Lots of downshift deceleration. I have had a lot of LS engines and they all seem to like to be broken in hard.

My dyno is in the ground, in my shop. LOL A little east of Brandon on Parsons avenue. $75.00 and you get 3 pulls and wideband o2.

Pretty awesome that you picked up that much HP/TQ from porting the manifold. This'll beg good news for all of the "warranty" guys on this board.

What is this warranty thing you speak of?.

At this moment this is a prototype, we want to test it against the FAST this week amongst other things before we bring it to market. This manifold is actually very tricky in porting. Really need the flowbench to gain positive results. Rest assured, as soon as possible, this will be available!


Ive got the new car have to mod bug pretty bad again.

?????an impatient sniper??????? now that is new to me. Well; seriously, I need to make absolutely certain that this product is perfect. Remember that this round of testing was done to a car with no computer programming and no other parts. We are now on to testing to see how well it responds to programming and other mods being on the car. At the moment this product is perfect for someone who wants to install something that the dealership would not detect. I.E. no programming, and all stock appearing under the hood. Pricing will also be determined upon how much time will be invested in the average manifold. Can't judge this on the first one as it took way too many hours to do.

I will get some pics of the manifold later this week when I remove it. Now doing the driveability test to make sure that the car doesn't do anything stupid due to the modifications. 2 days so far and all is good. Obviously it looks stock on the outside.

So Greg are you testing the FAST manifold this weekend? Also, will it be tested un-tuned like the proto-type?
