yea i understand what everyone is saying but im not trying to get massive power gains of any sort, i just believe it can be done properly and gain something somewhere. i am still researching and pondering on ideas as to how i am going to go about a few things but i recon i will get there in the end. also this will be built and used on my eb paddock bomb i have untill i can get it to work properly, so im not real fussed if something does happen to s**t itself because of this setup (not gunna wreck my baby lol). but worst case scenario i cant get it to work and it ends up in the "attempted projects" pile lol.

You will loose more than you gain. Simple as that.

Godzilla springs to mind but those throttles are the same size (if not a little smaller than) as the individual runners. I picked my manifold with twin 64mm throttles. In theory (without taking into account boundary layer effects) they should flow the same as a single 96mm throttle body.

yea that looks like an awesome setup, i might try modify a log manifold first then if that doesn't work right will try the bbm.
