Inlet maifold??

Recommended Posts

Hi All,


You may have seen my other post https://www.vr6oc.com/forum/forums/topic/50755-pistons-required/Well I am confused over inlet manifold, I have seen the short/turbo manifold, are these OK to fit to a standard engine? 


example https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Short-VR6-Turbo-Inlet-Manifold-2-8-2-9-L-Exhaust-VW-Golf-1-2-3-4-Corrado/202310407306?epid=789495521&hash=item2f1aa3d48a:g:Jx4AAOSw7p5aZbae

Thanks for you help

Peak torque is shifted higher up on FI engines plus you have the forcing of air so short runners okay for that, but unless you're going for a very high revving engine (not really the best engine to do that on being undersquare tbh), then you'll be better keeping the stock manifold for more low end torque - depends on your goals though I suppose!
