Who did the work? ---
Champion did the intake, and Steve Monroe did the throttle body and dog house.
Awesome, thats the same exact combo I will be using ---
Tom at Champion was great to deal with! I'll definitely be sending my heads to him when I'm ready also!
Looks nice pal. Nice combo
Are you going to use the power plate?
Yes. I'll be using one from RJC.
Hopefully I'll have everything together either tonight, or tomorrow. Then I'm going to start installing my 9" rear end. I was going to install a Trans brake also, but don't think so anymore...
CHICKS DIG IT! LOL...
I like using a trans brake. well worth the money IMO
Isn't it prettying rough on your drivetrain?
Yes but it can handle it. I have a strange S60 rear end and a built trans
Yes mine will handle it also, but what about the suspension? When you're using the Trans brake there's no way to keep the suspension loaded up right?
I thought maybe there was a way to possibly keep it loaded up like brake torqueing then engaging the trans brake, but somebody told me different.
Got everything together, and got the car running yesterday. I got rid of the egr, and will also not be running a pcv valve anymore. Going to run open breathers on both valve covers. I also eliminated the coolant going through the Throttle body. I also want to say thanks to beatav8 for helping me with the intake manifold gasket. Chicks dig him!
Same here. Steve is awesome with the TB and Plenum. Just got mine back from him and he does great work, also does a half shaft mod on the TB. Opens it up to 62mm and flows like 65mm w/half shaft mod. Great guy too.
