12-06-2007 06:34 PM Frame Mockup
I installed an old manifold to mock up the location of the truck frame rails so I can start tacking the primary tubes on.

Pic 1: I wrapped bolts with black tape to take up the slack and keep them centered when I bolted the flanges to the mock up engine.

Pic 2: Shows the flanges bolted up to the mock up.

Pic 3: I tacked a pce of bar across the top and bottom of the flanges to keep them in line. I may or may not add bars between the flanges later depending how well they come out.

12-06-2007 05:20 AM Dyno
I went for a dyno and had disappointing results.
Pic 1: The blue show 167 HP with 245 FT/LBS of torque.
The red line is after we took off the cold air intake/filter box.
Wow,what a difference. 22HP and 20 FT/BLS of torque.
Pic 2: I ordered the largest K&N air filter I could find and test fitted it.
I haven't taken it for a test drive yet as we've had alot of snow, but I should feel a big difference,
I also have to make up some headers to let it breath a bit better as the air/fuel is showing way to rich at 12:1 w/o the air filter.
I hope this solves the problem. I'm getting 11.25 MPG as it is now.
Pic 3: shows some the flanges I had waterjet cut out of 3/8" stainless along with some 1-1/2" stainless elbows.

I added a TPI from a 92 Firebird. I had it powder coated and made up a cold air intake/filter box.
