    New dbilas Z20LET Manifold, 30bhp ?????

    Just been reading on the new dbilas manifold for the Z20LET engine, and claims to give an instant 30bhp with a standard turbo. Is this too ambitious????

    Take a look yourself

    If this is true, then it could be an alternative to a remap

    Thats the same as the inlet cam they do. Gives an extra 30bhp on a phase 2 map. So according to these figures, inlet cam + dbilias turbo manifold your looking at 312bhp max with the phase 2 map and the normal mods to go with that.

    Yeah Right !!!!

    IT wont give 30bhp, it has been seen to do that, but imo it was a one off, wont happen normally !

    10-15bhp IS realistic, as is that for the cam too, the standard manifold is complete poopies !

    A good mod though.... I would say a stage 1 with this manifold would be 250-260ish

    If you have the money then why not, standard manifold is crap, you can see the strangulation on power maps. Bit expensive for me though.
