I'll see what I can come up with. These manifolds have an inlet at each end, the unused one gets a plate bolted over. They've also got some steel plugs which might need replaced with welded in aluminium plugs at 70psi. I don't see that scaring you.Very interesting that the manifold bolts right up I wonder how it sits, I'd hate to see its outlet come out right in the way of my supercharger although I guess I could move it lol. Wish I had one close I could try out but I have never even heard of one here in the states.
Looks like it makes the plenum sit below the runners when its on the engine. correct? I guess it would be easy to flip it upside down so the outlet is facing rearward then just weld up the original inlet and cut a hole in the "new" forward facing opening and weld a V band flange onto it like I plan to do with a sheet metal intake anyway hmm..... now I need to look into this intake more.
Did you happen to see the new issue of DieselPower with the Bank's supercharged Duramax? The lower pulley looks like something I've seen in this thread...I did run across a thread on a ford site about a a guys review of the empire diesel procharger kit on his 99 F250 7.3L powerstroke.
I like this idea. I have enough traction problems on a damp road with a basically stock engine and fulltime 4wd. Yours must be downright silly.I have been considering a new chassis idea I am thinking of an all wheel drive modern hydroformed chevy 1/2 ton rolling chassis with a well built 4l85e (wish PCS would finish the new 6l90e controller). How cool would 4 wheel burnouts be and traction all the time even on good quality street tires Its just an idea right now luckily the 4 link and air suspension I have sitting in the shop can be made to work on anything so I'll give it some more thought while I'm gone.
Oh I'm not worried about being low for the look. Stability counts when you're four wheel drifting.:grinpimp:Yeah I remember when gale banks son posted pics of the engine a year or so ago on comp d. I had mine in the works well before banks let that one out of the bag lol.
Dougal I've been considering using a chevy frame maybe a late model with hydroformed frame they have a stationary diff with it's I could just install my rear axle and 4 link make some body mounts and go. I could still get the truck as low as it is now so no worries on looks.
