    Intake manifolds.

    Browsing through ebay early and came across this:
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/AUDI-1-8-20v-T...3A2%7C294%3A50
    I know the colours awful but im sure i once read somewhere on here that the inlet manifold is restrictive (can someone confirm), but would that be anygood?
    Also did a bit of back reading through past post and something came up regarding dahlback, had alook on the web and found this also, half way down:
    http://www.dahlbackracing.se/english/main.asp
    Seems agood price too.

    I'm not sure that'll fit your S3, the entrance to the intake manifold is on the left which is for 1.8Ts with only one SMIC, the S3 has two SMICs so the entrance to the intake manifold is on the otherside....

    S3


    Golf (with one SMIC)

    APR do an aftermarket inlet i think.. but you need uprated conrods to run it, apperently makes a hell of a difference.. awesomegti.co.uk supply them but im sure you can look around for different prices and alternatives..

    I have the Dahlbck intake. No gains except (theoretically) better airflow. I haven't measured intake temp but the intake is definately cooler than OEM. I think it will be better when fitting an FMIC (maybe). Even better gains expected if you're going BT. Looks cool tho...cheap too

    I think it will be a waste of your cash dani, your head is an APY which is a small port so it will just be bonnet bling, but its your money.

    For the inlet manifold to be the major restriction, you would need to be using a large port head. These are fitted on AEB and AGU motors for sure and possibly others.

    To main any significant gains you would need to change the head as well.

    The money would be better spent elsewhere IMO. Either a FMIC or dowpipe would be where I'd go.

    I can't see why an inlet manifold would need a rod change????

    Very easy to fit, as I said: it looks cool but I think you'll need a BT kit, FMIC, upgraded hoses etc. to notice any gains. I think fuel economy is slightly better now and intake temp. has definately dropped. I also installed a Phenolic thermal gasket at the same time and that helped bring down temp. drastically as well. So some gains, yeah for sure. A lot of cheap horses...NO!
    OEM vs. Dahlbck:

    Cheers...FMIC is under construction as we speak. Will be on the car in the next few weeks I hope. I'm running 1.4 in 1st and 2nd gear (peaks at 1.5) and in 3-6th gear it's 1.5 bar with peaks up til 1.6...

    Can you hold those boost figures through the rev range with the standard set up? or does it peak and drop?

    Holding the boost figures up through the rev range yes. The peaks were we saw relative high up when we had it hooked up with VAGcom.

    The manifold to get is SEM these days..
    nice bit of kit and proven airflow to exceed all others on flowbench as well as being very equal cylinder filling.

    full write in this thread below for those interested.
