Default Intake Manifold replacement or additive?

http://www.zzperformance.com/zzp/pro...ake_insert.htm

Is this a replacement for the intake manifold or something else entirely?


Has anyone made a metal replacement for it yet other than the stupid plastic stock one?

Thanks!

I believe Ty from Domestic Performance (speedyguy on BC here) was working on one, but it is a very expensive mod if I remember correctly.

I think its still cheaper then having to replace then whole engine

Looks more like a gasket. I'd say that is NOT a replacement for the upper intake plenum.

Well the best I can see it'* an intermediate gasket that goes between the Upper & Lower Intakes. I think it'* their way of trying to rectify the "Coolant Comsumption TSB" http://www.bonnevilleattitude.com/fo...d92b72504e1c5a
I can't see by looking at this image though, how you will get a HP increase as claimed or if any really?

I believe that'* an attempt to increase flow, too. ZZP toyed around with a metal upper intake, and decided not to go with it I think.

ADTR succesfully made one, and it'* currently running on Hector'* car. He probably won't be marketing it. Too costly.

That thing on ZZP'* site won't do anything for the failure around the EGR port at all.

Default Intake

With the buying power of the Bonneville, Regal,and GP club can't someone talk Edelbrock into makeing a replacement. The market is there i would sure buy a aluminum replacement if Edelbrock madeone.

Any manufacturer will build one if you pre-buy a certain number of them first! The problem lies with what to do with the rest of them until you can get them sold? Not to mention the initial investment, which is more than most are willing to spend on just an idea!
