    Not 100% sure to be honest, but id imagine snappier throttle response and as im spinning it to 7000rpm it can breath and make power all the way upto that

    Anything with twin throttles or individual throttle bodies on each cylinder is nuts

    I must admit its taking longer than i though but hpf are going above and beyond and really thats what im after
    Time will be long forgotten once i get the car back im sure
    In the meantime ive ordered some other goodies to console myself, michelin 4s tires and some carbon treats for something else hehe

    Bring on the sunshine, love doing my drives after work with good weather

    Man, that looks so sweet under the bonnet.
    I spoke to my tuner here in Newcastle a while ago & asked him about that inlet manifold.
    He gave me a formula to work out throttle body size required by cc, stroke etc &
    I think at the time my (6L) engine required a throttle body no bigger that 96 mm (approx, my memory is fading)
    So he said to me if my engine only requires 96 mm throttle body to get max HP, why would I want
    to waste money on a dual t/b manifold??
    Well, after seeing your pic's the answer is straightforward -
    How f@#$%ing awesome does it look???
    Man that is one sweet engine bay.......

    (I'm having a year off from racing next year due to upcoming knee replacements, and I
    was going to pull the motor out of my VE & stroke/rebuild it.
    I really hope/wish craze that I can pick your brain & get some advice from you?)

    Not sure where u live but you are welcome to take a look
    I basically left it to hpf but it took some explaining for them to realise i like things a bit on the crazier side

    Its not meant to be most powerful just tough and redline to 7000! Haha
    I already did tires mps4s and all suspension, brakes, sway bars etc
    I like keeping the vehicle looking stock inside and outside

    I used to lower my cars but stopped as most roads arent favorable and i find it handles best at stock height

    i found the car to be much more predictable with the MRC removed and coilovers fitted, plus all the adjustments u can do front to rear u can set it up for much better balance
