:? Or alternatively you could have just left the OEM manifold on and connected two pipes to it...

Were the trumpets too noisy?

Ha! That would be far too simple.

The itb's should work a lot better than the std Citroen plenum.

Problem with the trumpets was not the noise but the warm air. Needed a cold air supply.

More progress. Not sure about the blue plenums yet.

Should I have stayed with black?!

Hmm. RV8 plenum isn't the best. ACT do some nice carbon fibre replacements :)

Agreed though the £700+ price tag is a bit limiting.
These have cost about £100 all in.

Hi Rupert,

Be a great before and after dyno run write up on here if you have the before data? All these little changes can be measured, even on a chassis dyno with appropriate correction factors for the delta environmental conditions on the day etc... consistent tyre pressures etc

Put some numbers behind it will be quite interesting to folk. 8)

How did decide on the final plenum volume, what is it roughly out of interest?

Cheers,
Martin
