That's the Shearer one. I think he modifies a cast intake them to order. BTR I think is a fully cast unit.

Shears and tooleys are both true dual plenums just like mine.

Both will work very well

Certainly looks interesting, but does look like the runners will be very short, and plenum not so large ?

He's obviously trying to keep it with a low height profile.

Now where have I seen an intake with internals like that before? Hmmm... Oh yeah, the factory TBSS intake! GM ran the TBSS intake in their GTP or Lemans race programs.

This site is still very 4th Gen centric - where hood clearance dictates most intake decisions/bias - so we can assume that will be the front runner for opinions/interest by many.

But what about heat soak? Is everyone okay with that now? Oh and the weight? Yes, I am being facetious.

Did you make the lower plenum or is that something that can be bought?

Hoping for spring time and test results no ETA yet. Curious which application people are more interested in seeing? NA or boosted?

I messaged them on FB about whether the throttle body opening will be 92mm or 102mm , they replied back that it is looking to be 102mm.

I'm sure both, I know I am. I have a FAST manifold waiting at home to go on my car. I plan on procharging my car in the not too distant future so would love a manifold that performed good now NA and is made out of metal for FI later.

Given it's alloy they should really aim for the 92mm with the option of 102mm.

Especially for boost and DBW, where it seems most of the larger units dont work for this, and the stock 90mm can support over 2k anyway

N/A would want the larger opening no doubt

I mean that's a pretty CLEAR copy of Shearers already proven unit.

Never good to see an American company ripping off another American company.
