Either way though, it is time to dyno in its N/A form. So if Gabe has a spare manifold available that is NOT the one used for mock-up, then I can test both. I will ask him and see what he says.

How's that sound?

One thing that I want to mention, and I don't know why I never did before, is this. So I apologize for that.

To bring things back into perspective. The reason that I went to Gabe to create this manifold in the first place, as well as for its primary function, was to make a strong intake manifold which would handle the constant high boost pressures which I will be running. Not knowing the limits of the factory plastic manifold, and not wanting to find out while driving, that is where this came from.

Secondary benefits would be added HP and TQ.

I don't know how I became side tracked and forgot to mention that, but I just wanted to make that clear. I was actually reminded just a littke ago while talking with his close friend, my co-worker. He introduced me to Gabe, and was there when I gave all of the necessary parts to him for mock-up/construction.

Nevertheless, the dynos will be happening soon. On a model that is very similar to the one which DoubllD has right now. That specific design is for a boosted application. Gabe has a different style which will be for N/A, but has not yet made one.

A little back story about the manifold that DoubllD has: When Gabe first brought it over to test fit, it was supposed to be test fit on Toon714's truck. Unfortunately though, his truck was being tuned by Chris Delgado from D3. Well Lucario Runner was also at my house since he came down to check it out as well. So we test fit it on his instead. Immediately we noticed that the hood wouldn't close. So Gabe went back and threw one together that to test fitment on Lucario Runner's 4Runner. That was simply a rush and test manifold. Not actually optimized for strength or performance.

The theory of performance gained was realized when they did a test drive, though. As the AFRs were lean. Which meant much more air. Soon after that, Toon moved to Cali, and my truck still wasn't operable. So we didn't have anyone close to test out the first constructed manifold on. And it was put on the back burner.

Fast forward to the beginning of March, and DoubllD has it installed on his truck and it fits properly, with out any modification to the height of the manifold. That means that effectively, the 1GR in the 4Runner sits higher than in the PreRunner/4x4.

Had we had the ability to test fit it on mine or Toon's, these would have progressed much more quickly.

400 more miles to go to break in my clutch, and as soon as Gabe is finished with the next one, it will be dyno time.

Ya. I hate so cal now
Because it delayed this manifold from being made.
I wish i didnt have to move around this time that this was being made....
But it should be made soon.

And i cant wait!!
Once its on my truck. It will be dyno with before and after with the turbo.

I'm interested in how well this will do down the road for you. I've heard a lot of bad reviews on STS but if I do go the turbo route in the future going custom might be too expensive for me.

I have been there and done that. With the right work, a rear mount can be a very good system. Xroller has one right now, and it is doing pretty well for him. Just needs proper attention to detail. Which the guys at STS overlook.

Something I still need to learn how to do. Haha. But with off-roading I don't think a rear mount would be optimal.

In regards to an N/A application, how soon can we expect a price and dyno results compared to stock?

Last I heard from the fabricator, is that he was waiting on some material to come in. My truck is getting some final touches to be able to drive again. Then all I have to do is setup a dyno day. But I want to do the dyno day for both, on the same day. Just to keep things as similar as possible.

I will try to get a hold of him today, and I will update as soon as I hear something.
