Mike and I went through it step-by-step using what I learned on the S1 L67'*. The reason I was interested in doing this was because I witnessed first-hand the horrible outlets on the L36 manifold. Far worse than the S1 L67, which had room for improvement in their own right.
Many hours of phone discusssion between jr's3800 and I over the last year resulted in a real understanding of the important factors in efficient flow for the L36. More often than not, people tend to purchase the easy bolt-on parts, and don't pay any time or attention to the parts in between the bolt-ons. Hence the preamble on my zillamotorsports page.
So the NEBF contingent nailed a LIM and sent it to me. It sits 10 feet from me right now, half finished. About the time I started work, Mike1995 wanted to give it a whirl. Since he has a BONE STOCK car, we (jr's3800 and I) figured it would be a good comparison car. jr's3800 has a few other 'supporting' goodies, so a comparison from bone-stock to his would be nice. Mike'* work on that LIM was absolutely BEAUTIFUL. He agreed to not get greedy on the material removal, and stuck to the theory and plan like glue. This was critical to allow for a direct comparison later to a car with more supporting mods.
From Mike'* description, his car responded (L36) better than Black94SSEi'* S1 L67, even though both cars were bone stock and had nothing done but ported LIM'*. (billboosty copied my LIM porting on black'* car during their last mod-day together about 3 months ago). It APPEARS as if the L36 may benefit from a broader range of gains across the RPM band than the S1 L67, which seemed to gain more top end than anything. I didn't have the luxury of really characterizing my LIM porting, as I made a few other changes at the same time.
That day is coming very soon. I'll get pics up tonight. I'll even get my tripod out and try to show a split-screen view of a good and bad port (before and after in the same frame).
Mike'* results were promising to say the least. Don'* will finish off his trans.
Add Mike and Don'* cars to the zillamotorsports 'victim' list.
