m50 manifold installed!

Reaction: WOW

Got the m50 manifold installed after weeks of waiting, and the gaints are AWESOME! I was first scared that i wouldn't be able to feel the difference, but they are DEFINATELY noticeable! I can't even tell if there is a loss in low end torque at all (probably because of my slipping clutch), but once its past 4000 it just keeps PULLING all the way through redline! Now all that's in my way is a shark injector so I can raise the rev limit, but that'll have to wait til after cams :evil2

here are some pics

the manifold before the install


notice the size difference in the runners


yay its in!
