There aren't too many companies out there interested in beating an old horse (so to speak). It'* somthing you can have done by any good machine shop, or even yourself if you have the right tools. If you pursue this, share the info. There'* a bunch of us old Series 1 cars around that could benefit from this. You've got me thinking about the same thing. I'm just waiting to hear how Hector'* Series2 TB porting comes out, and what his results are.

Either Hector or I will let you know here on the forum when the Series 1 ADTR intake has been test-fitted. The very day, within the hour. I promise!
That is good, I don't always have the time to announce newer stuff. I have been working on my car for the last 1.5 weeks straight and have the cuts on my hands to prove it. Been messing around with the exhaust manifolds, I have a few newer ideas of how to get the best bang for the buck.

Yeah, going to smooth out and port the throttle body. I am figuring out how big to go and just kinda playing with it. We are smoothing out the throttle body and such. We are going to make a housing for the stock MAF so we can divorce it from the Throttle Body. It'* so simple, I am surprised no one else has done it.... It'* a cheaper solution rather than doing the LS1 setup in which you have to reprogram the MAF tables in your computer. I believe it will work, just have to make sure not to confuse the MAF.

I am currently evaluting the products we want to release for the spring of 03. We have lots of neat ideas and test parts laying around but they may not all be the best bang for the buck performance for some of them. But I am sure Willwren will keep you guys/gals updated. :P

If you find me a Series I TB for cheap or some deal we can work out, I am willing to try and see what I can do. If you are willing to try it out Willwren I am willing to make it.

Hmmmm.....Lemme look around and see what I can find for cheap. I'll call a couple wreckers and see who'* got what. This could go hand in hand with your intake and the pulley.

Oh I do I do.

Ití* a mild port though because the computer thing a-mi-jig is sensitive. I also wouldnít want to overbore and have a thin walled unit.

Maybe I'm kinda late on this one but the intake will only draw in whatever can get past the valve. The 3" will provide air with more velocity like previously stated and the air will be more dense provide a more equal burn in the cylinder. The 4" would be too wide for the amount of air we need in our engines so the air intead of going staight will kinda dance around. The factory doesn't jut make an intake for induction , they also have to calculate it on cold days , hot days , rainy days and the intakes also make a BIG difference in the sound of the motor. The go through TONS of tests to pass an intake.
If my idea'* are wrong , then I don't know.
