Has anyone taken a S50/M50 manifold and modified it to fit a M20 engine? Is that even technically/physically viable?
I bet just porting for flow would be best though.

I have seen the factory intake manifolds/throttle bodies make over 280whp NAwhich is 140whp over stock, and well over 500whp when turbo'd...the engineers arent morons you know
now, if you really wanna get crazy and plan to make over 400hp then you need individual throttle bodies, which will MURDER your tq but increase the top end power a tad as seen above ^ the are made by DBilas and cost around $3k
