Re: Turboing junk with junk??

If you build a log type manifold, turn the primary tube towards the exit as it enters into the log. Also increase the diameter of the log each time it collects a primary tube. The increase in the log diameter prevents pressure pulses from resonating back and forth in the log. So if the exit of the ...

Re: Permanent 300 Six Cyl Head CFM solutions- A Work in Progress

It is a little hard to say which head I would be interested in because all I really know is the concept and a estimated flow number.

I would probably be interested in option One or Two. It would be used in a large full size 4x4 truck where bottom end power and reliability are the most important.

So by limiting boost, you could run into the choke zone?
