has anyone here ditched the broadband manifold for a decent size plenum style manifold?

If so what sought of gains/losses did you achieve?

Im looking at making one for my motor.

Cheers

Nispro make a plenum.

on an N/A street engine removing the top 1/2 of the manafold for a large plenum isnt an overly good idea. The torque loss wont be made up by the upper RPM increase in power.

nizpro make half an intake intake based the stock one.
no one make a complete replacment
the nizpro one will loose torque because it looses the duel length runners

i have controll over the bbm switch, the long runners arnt anywhere as long as they were with the top half of the bbm on, but it still helps tourque

I actually have more tourque with it, even with its capacity double the bbm.
