    ^^^ this. Ramair really isn't significant until well into 3 figure speeds.

    Stupid question incoming - couldn't you turn the throttle bodies upside down and mount them so the horn point down a little as opposed to up a little? [:s]

    Yes that was a Stupid Question.

    the Jenvey DTH are mounted direct the head so come straight of the head at the 90deg angle that is dictated by the 16v head design

    Thanks for the pic Brookster, looking at it now I don't think the Badger5 set up will do, looks like custom curved spacers are needed.

    looks like a custom manifold (i.e. tapered section of metal) would be the cheapest way to solve it then unless you need the bodies to be at 90deg to the head for swirl or some other reason?

    I can't imagine some tapered AND curved horns would be cheap to make.

    The curved spacers that Badger5 has would be ideal with more of an angle on them, surely can't be too hard to cast?

    Defeats the point of DTH bodies - nice downdraft effect

    or machined from billet. looks like a simple taper section really.


    what are the benefits of downdraft? I doubt a subtle reangle of the bodies would change how they breathe very much.
