I'm thinking about buying one. I've been reading a lot of good things about them.

I was wondering though, on the Loveridge website there's the tables we've all seen of how the airflow is evened out. Are these measurements taken at the lower manifold? (head intake ports) What pressures were seen in the upper intake during these tests?

I don't have any disbelief as to whether or not it works, at low rpm for off idle quality, etc. I just can't picture it working the same throughout a 10-30 psi pressure sweep.

It's like a garden hose, you can direct the spray simply by restricting the end more or less.

Having said that, you can poke at numbers all day and get nowhere, or you can try it and see. And the numbers speak for themselves, I may buy one.

All Flows were measured at the valve opening in the head. All the flows were averaged and then each port was compaired to that average to reflect how far rich or lean the air was, this was cacualated as a percentage of off the average. Turbo TC

I emailed Jason about making them for the Syclones and Typhoons. He thought there wasn't enough made, guess 7700 wasn't enough? I really want one, but haven't got enough interest on syty.net for one. Maybe in a few months, we'll have some buyers ready. I'd like to do a GP sort of thing, to show Jason there's enough to make it profitable for him. Our intake design is worse than the TurboBuicks. Thomas, can you persuade him?

Cool, that's what I figured. (that's how I would have done it
)What about pressures though?
