Nothing I caped it off, Iím thinking I may have a vacuum leak add well. I donít see another spot/hose for it to connect.
I do have the oem TB ported 5 mm I didnít check to see how the Mate is, good idea Iíll check it out now.

I didnt use any sealer on gaskets, they are cork gaskets think I should remove and seal??
Something is off, few times Iíve hit it and wow, pulls harder than ever, others just feels very lazy........
help!

😲😮😳 holy crap!! Maybe with heat and over night gaskets seals better or something, also did TB relearn
And wow today itís whole diff car. Top end is just silly
slightly less low end but not dramatic, what a diff from last night and today. Very happy with the intake

Glad to hear it's working out, the cork is ok. I'd probably change it out for boosted applications though.

It all comes down to the tune, though your build reminds me of Alex Refro's build, he dyno'd 304 whp with an Admin intake, and Velocity manifold. (think he put a velocity stack onto his intake as well)

Excellent !

I'm still waiting for my one to arrive in the UK
It looks like you're revving pretty high, have you got any supporting parts for that ? (as I assumed you're a DE as well)

The only supporting part I have is rev up oil pump, all other internals are oem...... Iím not even sure what RPM to shift at for maximum MPH/ET. Moncef said all the way to 7500, but I donít want to grenade the engine lol. I was planning on shifting right at 7-7100 rpm (only At track). What do yíall think best RPM would be? Also is it the connecting rod bolts that are weak? If so can oil pan be removed and bolts be swapped for safer operation to 7500?

Yeah you need rod bolts to stay on the safe side if you have a DE

It's the same as me then, my one is limited to 7k at the moment.
I was informed not to just put new rod bolts in, however I'm not a seasoned engine builder so I don't know if that's correct.
Hopefully someone can say.

According to Nismo you can just add their bolts and pump and rev higher. I am not a seasoned builder but I am a mechanic and on big diesel engines they would inspect the main and rod bearings and put them right back in if nothing was wrong with them, hopefully someone that has more experience on this engine can chime in.

That's good to know, I might try and ask around as well (although I'm buying new bottom end components anyway but it's interesting to know!).

Thank you for the compliment! Iím with you on that rpm to shift at, Ive only taken it up to 7500 rpm a few times.... man that is freaking addicting!!! The sound the engine and intake make is insane!! Literally screams lol, Iím VERY happy with the outcome and the kinetix manifold, for those questioning
that manifold, it does exactly what it claimes to do. For me anyway. Iím extremely impressed, what Iís also impressive
is the low end gains, lost zero anywhere on the graph.

Yey, it arrived on Friday!
Remap on the 30th, will dyno/remap first with how it is now, then fit the Z1 intake and dyno/remap again.
I followed the instructions and left their gaskets on and removed the oem ones. Stupidly I had bought an Motordyne Aramid gasket for it though, doh.
Im not into chrome stuff or engine bay tarting up but you know what, it looks quite nice under there.

Looks good! I know the Z1 intake and Velocity plenum make good power together, and I hope you're happy with the results

Cheers guys, just remember my numbers will look potentially far lower than what you or anyone else gets
It's a brutal dyno but I use the same one for consistency

I think the bigger concept is the change in power between the two setups.
