    Dibilas Inlet Manifold

    Ok i know lots of people have talked about these in the past, but asik i have never seen a thread where someone has had one fitted and compared the differences from standard to when they have put it on. i know oddjob (ken) has one but i dont think it has been fitted yet.

    Can someone proove me wrong and tell me how good they are as they have fitted one?? e

    The Dbilas should be fitted at the end of May as I have some holidays booked. ATM the car is running fantastic, the remap done by ChippedUk has made it much better to drive, although I'll need to have it remapped again when the Dbilas goes on, I'll wait until I fit the Lexmaul manifold as well, if things go well, this will be the same week but not the same day as that wouldn't give me any chance to see how which one affects the power.

    I may fit a set of cams if the power isn't as high as I want it, I could do with some more low down grunt. Turbo time next year probably, maybe a VXR or may be a GSi but not a 888 as they do nothing for me, not a big coupe fan.

    I don't attend any shows Danny, it's not that I'm unsocialable it's just that I work weekends and most are held on Sundays and that's a work day for me, also shows are ok but I'm not really into showing my car, as long as I like it that's good enough for me.
