    Hey, KZ... how'd that manifold work out for you with that small plenum/ balance set up and the short runners? I've moved to Texas, been flooded by Harvey, rebuilt the house and finally got my little shop up and running since you bought this. Unfortunately, the money to build the big shop went into rebuilding the house but we're ready now to start building again...

    I have solved the whole issue! FORCED INDUCTION!! Don't need a sophisticated manifold design. Chinese turbos are all over the place in scrap yards! It becomes a big problem with roots type blowers. That's where the money comes in. But if you want it under the hood. Turbos!!

    Question ::: I have a 1 inch spacer under my Q-jet. The stock manifold center divider is cut down some also. I'm wondering if the spacer was a good idea, or not ?? Added plenum a good idea, or not ??

    If you have the room under your hood and as long as the extra gasket needed to run a spacer is not leaking, then its usually a good addition to your engine. The added plenum volume is usually good for an extra pony or two at the expense of a tiny loss of throttle response and vacuum signal.

    Yes as much as 1.5 but 2 and over is a waste if stock. From what Ive read. Not from experience.

    Bill,

    Thanks for introducing me to a new product, Micarta. I had never heard of it before your reference to it but a Google search provided details about an interesting material. Thank you.

    Now would you just have to happen a blower manifold for a Cad that you don't need? For donations?
