I hope you're not planning on going N/A with the g54b... I see ITBs and no plenum for induction

Im only saying that because the motor will be a dog as its a huge iron anchor used in forklifts sans turbo

You would be amazed what you can get out of an engine just by opening up the intake.... I look at it this way, the Magna made 130hp/160tq out of the 2.6L.. based on what i read aroudn, people were getting 150whp+ out of them. NA Carbbed on other platforms...approx 180hp. That isn't too bad if I can do that Cam, Port work, a very serious Intake, and a good set of headers.

But this isn't a forsure plan yet.... I still have it in the back of my head to put my 3.0L block together instead and go back to doing a 72 swap like I originally planned now that I have a transmission that bolts up, that was my biggest hang up on the swap in the past...

So it all depends how the next few weeks go really and how I feel about it. I'm not 100% sure I can even get that manifold anymore

I'm most interested in where you found that intake adapter. But really whatever you have planned I say go for it.

Do you plan on coming to the All Mitsu Cookout this year?

I would like to, but it is hard for me to plan that far ahead right now. If I do I will probably be in one of my 3000GT's. Curtis (The Host) is a friend of mine.

AS far as the manifold goes, Weber makes it. You can find the DCOE kits all over the place, but you can get just the manifold for like $350 from Recarb.

I still have this car... I won't lie - it has been tough to stay motivated... Between tracking down the parts I need to put the car together, and the car being in a storage unit making it a pain in the tail to work on, and extremely easy to forget about... it's just been hard.

I actually put the car up forsale twice.... absolutely loosing my tail on it too.... both times it was nothing but terrible trade offers, or kids who wanted it but didn't have the money...

each time I got so annoyed with people wasting my time I pulled the ad down and said "f*** it, I'm going to keep it"

So now I recently moved into a new place with some extra garage space so I can bring the car home.... but after some long thought and research, I decided to take a slightly different approach with the car... It's not conventional, and most will probably be like "...unsubscribe" but I will still be keeping the G54B... I have a strange attraction to it for some reason...

but here are some teasers...

Cylinders tend to mishape, oval, egg, whatever you want to hear... depending on where the piston is in it's stroke may cause it to drain slower or faster... Could be as simple as worn rings.

Man that thing looks incredible!

Looks like it is ready to kick some tail at the Track, or on the street!
