My next Mod...

Hey guys-
I was just wondering what you think about this intake mani. Its the only one I can find for the 420a so thats really my deciding factor. I am basically getting all the supporting mods before I throw on the turbo. So far, I have CA intake, exhaust installed on the car. I was thinking if this being the last part before I go TURBO! So what do you think? Would you go for it? Its such a deal compared to say a Magnus(way outa my price range).

BTW I have a '97 Mistu Eclipse GS (420a of course)

Heres the Link.....

EDIT: I just realized the link doesnt bring you right to the mani....its under Fuel/Intake...Manifold...OBX Intake Mani...

Thanks alot!

Well, all that I have installed before I throw on the turbo is the CA intake, exhaust and a few ECU mods. I was going with this mani because it will take a larger throttle bodie. So what do you think?

i seem to remember my old man tellin' me that some work needs to be done to the internals along with the combustion chamber if you're goin' to increase the amount of air intake, along with fuel intake, something about how you need to re-master it so it can take a higher degree of heat from a larger combustion... ChrisV i'm sure would be able to give you some help on this.

Hyndaiguy-
Although all I have on the car now is the CA intake and the exhaust, I have all of the supporting mods for the turbo in my garage. Since my Eclipse has the 420a, I will not be able to run a high amouny of boost and for that reason wont be uprgrading the internals. I am going to replace the head gaskets and put new bolts amost throughout. I have put together my turbo kit over about a year now, and have all of the required peices besides the internals. Thanks for the help tho.
