    Default 100+ Intake Manifold...

    As if we didn't talk about this enough already! It has been the discussion of numerous off-line conversations but at Carlisle it was discussed even further directly with Callaway. With their break-through into the C5 marketplace with various performance upgrade and cosmetic parts, it is hopeful that they'll take the time to design a new intake similar to the LT1 intake. This would allow extended breathing permitting higher rpm output and a much broader torque range. It was also discussed that this new product could involve removing the oversized GM HEI distributor and putting in a much smaller distributor so as to give the #7 and #8 cylinders uncompromised air-flow.

    It doesn't seem too difficult to come up with a product because there are a few options out there already that can be reverse engineered to make the Callaway product even better (Holley Stealth ram & TPIS mini-ram) Nothing like doing something better by learning from everyone else's mistakes Conceivably if the product is developed it could be geared towards a broad market. In other words, the TPI intakes of the Twin Turbo era are basically stock-ish GM TPI intakes which every C4 Vette has from '85 to '91. If Callaway were to develop this new manifold it could be marketed to every C4 owner and, of course, there would be special packaging and other parts required for the Twin Turbo 100+ package.

    Me? I'd buy it just to get another 1500-2000 of useable torque without increasing the peak output of the motor!

    Eric I was thinking about this today. I wonder how many sold orders it would take to have Callaway make another run of the 100+ manifolds?

    as we discussed this, the general consensusis to make a *new* design manifold if there is enough of an interest - A manifold that would take advantage of current knowledge and technology - the phrase "101 Plus package" was thrown out there - the idea was well received by those in attendance - This might be a more probable idea

    So Im guessing they said the 100+ could be improved on with new technology? Did they say what the timeline would be to know whether or not something would be done?

    The problem with a new intake is R&D which will drive the price up considerably. Id be happy with just a production run, in current design, made available to TT owners.

    I was seriously considering a Holley Stealth intake project, but if Callaway can produce one, and put their name on it, I'm in.

    I agree Sam, if I had any spare cash Id be throwing a stealth ram on my car. I think it would make crazy numbers on a b2k.

    Id rather have the 100+ though as it looks like a factory piece with the Callaway logos on the modified chevy plenum.

    If they make it, they have to promise to engrave the car # onto the manifold along with the Callaway name of course, and that would really make it a worth while investment.

    A B2K with a 6500 rpm capability would ROCK !

    How many rpm will our turbos support air flow?

    So long as it remains a 350 ci, 6500 rpms would be no problem.

    Serialization would be awesome on the new intake (and for little extra cost)

    As I had mentioned that night, Callaway produced & designed products carry a "value added" feature that you will NOT get with a *hyperram* or whatever else is on the market - It is stuff engineered, tested & produced by the car manufacturer - not be a *mod*, rather an upgrade

    I'd go for one, extra rpm range is all the '90 TT needs.

    It's a no brainer for Callaway to develop this... it would be a slam dunk. There are very few products out there that increase the driveability of the L98 motor. They'd see a return on investment in a short period of time without a doubt! This is, of course, with designing the manifold to cater to the standard C4, Camaro, TransAm and basically everything that ever had an L98 motor in it.

    I like the ideas about serialization and custom identification for the TT's too!

    I agree with Eric - An evolutionary product created / designed by the folks that brought us B2K's in the first place

    serialization is key for B2K owners

    Default 100 + manifold

    I doubt you will find the manifold as it was part of a kit that was in the ballpark of $11000 for the upgrade . It was more than just a manifold cam was changed rods heads ect .
