    Hey guys, I'm currently in talks with a porting company overseas in the US that do porting for the LLT sidi 3.6L manifolds.
    Who would be interested depending on numbers the price changes
    At the moment for 5 manifolds it will cost 275 each but that's not including shipping there and back, I will find out a shipping quote later in the week if I get a chance, but should be no more then maybe another 100 either way this will make it still very cheap.

    The porting is a stage 4 port. No tune is required after porting. More information on gains to come. If your interested port down bellow, I can also supply you with a manifold second hand in good condition. What my intentions of this would be is that we will send the manifold that is not on the car, off to get worked so u can keep ur existing manifold and still use your car, once the ported manifold had arrived at your door you can do a straight swap, this is also a good idea because you can increase your manifolds performance and looks by getting it ceramic coated ( turns out like chrome) aswell while it is off befor you swap it over. this will take maybe a week or a few days aswell.

    I am also thinkin if you send me your old manifold that you don't need anymore I will refund you 50 dollars.

    Thoughts? Admins can you please make this a sticky thread.

    Not sure about the alloy tech, it but for the LLt manifold it increases by 31hp with the mace manifold spacer, and 30 pounds of toque. I think this is really good, that's stage 3 port I am going to go with a different company because they are showing bigger gains, they send me some dyno graphs to I need to find them,

    Ok this is a link to show dyno graphs, price if we order 5 at once will be 300 each I'm thinking instead of sending our own manifolds or what eer we order them from another place in America to be sent to this guy then he send that one back

    How do you install links in your posts?
    Googled "gm LLT performance" and found an article where they dynoed a few bolt on's.
    They got nearly 22rwhp from headers and high flow cats.
    2.6hp from a CAI

    So if you can port your IM and get 15hp for a few hundred $ it's pretty good hp/$ value
    Cost less than a lot of these companies are trying to rip people for a CAI

    I'm interested as well. I can remember seeing somewhere that MACE mentioned some instructions on how to port the LLT manifold, but I'm not 100% certain. I'm not too keep on sending my manifold to the U.S though, I've had things caught up in customs before. You see, lets say if coming back too Australia they see for example 15 manifolds, the first the thing that's going to go through there head is someone might be selling these, the second thing is "hey lets stick a nice little import tax fee on them, keep them in customs for up to 3 weeks after they have paid(10% of the value of items, 10% of shipping costs to Australia) and charge them a handling fee of about a grand when the leave!"

    ..........Sorry bad experience with bring a guitar into Australia from the U.S.
