no only reason was for quicker spool. i ultimately want to go to a twinscroll 35r w/meth and want it to spool like my polka pickle...at least close to it haha

What do you guys think would be the appropiate setup for a custom IM on a 06 STi with a 4088? the only catch is that bottom end is not a big deal , as I have a supercharger as well . So should i go with a shorter runner (like 7-8inch) and keep the top end power freed up as much as possible ? We plan on using velocity stacks inside the plenum or plenums. was considering the twin plenum with cross connection to balance air press/flow.
Lastly , anybody have a bigger throttle body soloution to the drive by wire tb's? not really interested in going to cable.

search FIRST, then PM!!!

if you only care about top end, target you manifold runner lengths for it and use a large plenum. Since we have no clue about your setup or what your flowrate will be, can't really say what is an appropriate size for the plenum.

For the TB question; bore and make new butterfly?...

Do you know of/have you done a bored DBW TB? Very interested .
As for flow , the super charger is quite large . designed for the AMG C32 Benz . not sure of the specs, ill get em though. as well as the exact trim on the hair dryer .

Point in case: It will not increase your spool noticeably. If you want your spool another 150rpm sooner and spend a whole lot of time and a bit of money to do it, I applaud you. Post pics when youre done! BTW, twinscroll FTW! I think you need to ditch the 6mt and go 5spd ppg... Instead of concentrating on spooling sooner/faster, you could just stay in boost longer and it will be overall better power to ground!

This is a cool setup, but I dont know about the unequal length intake runners.

Only if you make some sort of brakets to hold it, but whats the point of using a large volume manifold with a pos tmic? If your not flowing enough air to max your stock manifold and are using a tmic why waste the money on one?

A top mount just wouldnt do the Cosworth any justice.

According to Cosworth, a TMIC in theory technically could fit with the manifold. In reality though, the location of the BOV/BPV on the TMIC is right where the rear runner on the driver's side of the manifold goes...

So while in theory, yes, in the real world, umm... no... unless of course you don't mind running without a BOV or BPV on the car... You kinda need to have a FMIC sadly.

^^ or you could relocate the BOV/BPV to anywhere it could fit- as long as it's somewhere between the turbo and throttle body... and it's plumbed in correctly of course. It would def be a custom project though.

More info on this build. Those are ITBs bolted to the plenum.

so it's only the BPV that's getting in the way... that should be easily remedied...

Okies, just picked up the intake manifold. This thing's runners are HUGE!!! The manifold is also very light for how big it is!!! Of course it's a BARE manifold... but... very nice. They deburred a lot of the casting edges so you won't get cut, but you can still in some spots. Running this manifold requires a FMIC setup.

Unless you want to buy this one...

Also we have these fancy seats at our Dealership! I love sitting in them every time I'm there!!

Does that manifold bolt straight onto stock TGV?

Mine looks exactly like this one. Except that he grind off a few of the mounting points.
