Im looking at putting one or both of either the insulator or the spacer on, but want to keep the engine cover on and not have to butcher it to make things fit.
Is there any point in putting both a small manifold insulator and a small plenum spacer (both the 12mm), or is it better to just get one big one (ie the 25 mm manifold insulator)?
Dont have much plans to spend heaps on roller rockers at this stage, just got a k&n panel filter and gunna plumb up a diy CAI
thanks for any help
wow quick reply!
ok thanks. i finally found some other measurements - looks like the 25mm insulator might fit with no trimming of the cover?
also in regards to the 82degree thermostat - and sorry if this is a dumb question - does this mean the waterpump is running more constantly so likely to die earlier than if left stock?
browny (not even close to being mechanically minded).
The water pump will be runing all the time the engine is running as the dont run a clucth hub system like on other cars.
In regards to your thermostat question, the water pumps run all the time as Dave has mentioned If anything it will probably last longer with the thermostat as it's more often pumping cooler coolant then what it normally would without.
Quality of coolant and engine belt alignment will kill the pump before the thermo will.
to original poster, i ran both 12mm's for ages, definately worked
my mate now uses them as i've upgraded and he loves em too...
steve - the measurements werent ones i made, i just saw them in another thread. but thanks, ill finish saving the pennys up then order some stuff over.
do you guys have a store in nz at all?
i'll be a jackass and ask on this thread aswell - an upsized MAF - i see on they are available but cant find them on your own website. do you guys have them?
with that though, the local garage here reckons that the computer will have to be retuned to take advantage of the bigger MAF, and that if its not i will likely get computer errors?
