nice noticeable difference in low-mid range, top end is the same if not a little better.

she doesnt like to idle when cold. my prediction... is from the air assist solenoid. perhaps the extra tubing is to much of a restriction and starves the engine from air, stalling it out. once the car get warm is runs perfect, no complaints. this is my prediction now, may or may not be the cause.

this weekend i will try to unplug the air assist solenoid and put the line directly from the outlet of the IACV ( inlet for air assist normally) and put a hose going directly from the manifold.

a search in the FSM to see EXACTLY and under what conditions does the air assist solenoid activate will help my diagnosis too.

--------

comments anyone?

Very nice! I am doing something similar to what you did. Not nearly to running it yet though. I am in the fabbing stages.

If anybody's counting, this mod makes a car a minimum of Street Prepared in autocross. I'd be surprised if it launched you to stardom in Street Touring, so it may go ignored at a local level, depending on your competition.

Assumed that there's no performance difference measurement? If anyone else does this, grab at least a datalog before and after and stuff them in Virtual Dyno?

I've offered to pay for dyno testing, but 00LGTP and I haven't worked out the details. It would be nice to see dyno runs with both the stock IM and the '05+ IM, but I don't know how feasible that is. (I know when I was thinking about dynoing two different IMs I only had 1 set of fuel lines and rails and all that, so I would've had to do a lot of disassembly and reassembly, and I just thought it would be too big a PITA.)

Be certain that I'm not trying to make waves here; I like to know if and how an aspiring performance mod changes things. A great example is Ty's MAF CAI experiment, showing that a mod absolutely can make a mess at some RPM ranges.

Even a datalog "pseudodyno" beats a butt dyno. Any car carrying OBD-II or a standalone can do this for the cost (loan?) of a cable and some free software.

Believe me, I know that an intake manifold swap is definitely not like swapping in a CAI; I've done the one on my first SVX, and it takes more than four or five minutes. We've got SAE correction, so even if hours or days intervene, results can still find some degree of accuracy.

i had to bring it up. i think more ppl running 05+ intakes now and i'm in a process installing one.
well, it's all bolted down right now and wiring, map sensor mounting done
so the question to knowledgeable people is - did you guys just run a feeding line with no return?
or you did manufacture something.
everything else is somewhat configurable. and i found a new mounting place for map sensor. since it has built-in temperature sensor as well.
i'll post a pic of the thing if some one is interested

I'm also hoping for a before and after dyno on the intake manifold swap.
