Which? The 6 cylinder intake?

No, normally it is sitting on my desk. I mount it on every engine I have worked on so far. Drool over it for a while and then put it back on the desk.. :P

No the 93s over here had variable length intake runners, any use/advantage to that?

It should add torque at the lower revs. I think it works but I have only driven an NA GLT, this red car, once and although not fast it drove nice.

The flapper and vacuum actuator are still in place. Don't know if I will use the solenoid setup for the intake again. There is a solenoid connection prepared but for other usage. ;)

So that wouldn't be a direct bolt on for a turbo car then...

The manifold bolt pattern is the same but the port shape is totally different.

Looks awesome!

If I were to win the lottery I am shipping my car to you and then giving you the budget to do whatever to it. And then promptly taking it back to the states! :lol:

Damn that sucks. It would be kinda cool if it were done. Oh well, I guess I'll just throw it away :(

As of this morning the car is officially registered again as petrol engine instead of LPG. Car's weight on paper is back to 1341 kgs instead of 1381 with the LPG system which means annual road tax is going down from € 1284,00 to € 564,00... Yes that's $1107.00 less .. .. . ;)
