what i mean is that your low end sucks, but once you hit that rpm range, you can feel the car hit harder

i guess i forgot to add after i used min spirits, i used a clean towel to wipe the surface lol.

as far as gains, it pulls pretty strong from about 45-6500rpms. with full exhaust, with a tune it'd run way better and get full potential out of the mod.

One thing to add... DO NOT just clean the TB. There is teflon inside the TB that can easily be damaged so make sure to use TB cleaner or just a damp towel. I started spraying WD40 on mine to clean of the markings put on by the junk yard and my mechanic friend just about bitch slapped me because he thought I was spraying it down the TB. So be careful!w

Anyone running a GMPP intake with the 2.4 manifold on the 2.2? Would the intake give you some more lower rpms you feel like you werent gaining with just the manifold?

BTW great DIY :D

You will not gain low end torque even with an intake
