Not a problem mate.

Just noticed the polished chrome plug plates. You make them? Or did they come with the rocker covers?

I`ve lost both of my plastic ones grr, probably at the bottom of a box in the workshop somewhere.

leebay- the plug covers i made from a sheet of aluminium, same as the surround for the air filter, although i got some one to use a circular saw to get the plug covers cut to just the right width  

bitterend- the manifolds were made by Powerspeed who at the time were in hothfield, but have recently moved into ashford. not sure if they made much difference to power, but they made a huge difference to how smooth the car goes between 3-4000rpm

Don't think they will with the standard intake - thats the bottleneck imo. Nice car, i love Granadas :thumbsup:

That may be, but my bum dyno reported that it was definately smoother through the revs  ;D
Cerainly less 'cammy' anyway  :thumbsup:

As for the inlet manifold, I have a spare that has been hacked up and in the process of being modded at the mo  :mellow:

Thanks Ade  ;D    Was only a 2nd gear run up to 6k as thats what the standard ECU would allow. Can get full throttle loads above 2k now with the Emerald switching the 2 autobox solenoids when necessary  :mellow:

Not much to report on the inlet manifold front other than a pic of the spare plenum with the end caps off and the face machined flat



Got some new end caps welded up and awaiting milling to bolt them on

looking good how much are you extending the cap by , be interesting to see the differants it makes , did you manage to get the inside cleaned right out ?
when are you hoping to have it back on car .

It is a bit of 3inch pipe that has been cut in half, with a flange for each side welded on to. So hopefully it will be a decent amount of clearance compared to the standard glued on covers  ;D

Hopefully I can give the intake ports a bit of a tickle, as I have some flap wheels on a long shaft to get in there with. Will only give the casting a tidy up, not going too mad there.
Hoping to get it finished off and fitted in a couple of weeks time, shall post the findings up on here as soon as I know though  :mellow:

Taken a back burner for the mo tho, as one of the front coilovers snapped last Friday  :rolleyes:
