New Gintani Manifold

Whats going on fellas, just wanted to post some quick pics/thoughts of the new manifold the guys over at gintani came out with. I'll have some dyno info and sheets for all the stat rats to mull over soon but i couldn't stick around to have them dyno it because they already stayed overtime to get my car done for the track event i went to yesterday. They literally stayed til 8:30 thursday night (must have had to really make it up to the women in their lives since it was valentines day, talk about dedication) and come friday morning i drove the piss out of it at willow springs and as usual the car perofrmed flawlessly. I noticed the car felt like it had more torque on tap and lap after lap it pulled harder and harder. Pulling into the pits when i would pop the hood and touch the manifold it was remarkably cool which was impressive to me and the rest of the guys at the track. Anyway here ya go, sorry about the pic quality, all of us were itching to get out of the shop so the little ladies wouldn't be to mad at us lol

Appreciate it everyone this is their new upgraded manifold which flows quite a bit more over their original and is more pleasing to the eye. Ill let them chime in with the technical stuff as I don't want state something wrong but I'm very happy with the end result!

Nice! Definitely looking forward to hearing more details on the differences between this and the previous version.

I am such a sucker for carbon fiber in the engine bay!

If it indeed flows more than stock would there be utility to put this on a non-supercharged car? With a catless exhaust, drop-in filter and a tune, this would be a nice compliment if it could improve flow into the engine.

I wish ESS would design a naturally aspirated manifold option with a tune specifically for this coupled with a catless and intake setup.

8600 RPMS, more airflow should see some nice gains up top I would suspect

When Tecnocraft was working on my car they tried to increase the manifold size by about 2 liters. It only gained 2HP on the dyno...but it did make the car pull more consistently even when the engine was heat soaked. The real gains for the stock intake are seen by replacing the elbow before the manifold, as tecnocraft first did and then other companies soon followed.
