    Vic's motor died so his R&D is probably suspended. 97rs how do you know which version you are getting, the older, slightly lower style or the newer, taller one?
    I have the older style that is slightly lower. Collecting parts for my build and have not tried fitment yet

    i have not found numbers yet but i have bean reading that the holdens intake was desighned to flow better then the original FWD intake.

    i am asuming the original FWD intake was the one off a F-body. i will keep looking for real stats.

    old thread is old but I know this thread and unless the pics have been removed they were in this thread. Also use the search feature, there are members on here/were on here that posted pics of the swap.

    1996 camaro- Ole Blue. the very very very long time consuming project car
    1997 camaro- VIPER- turbov6camaro, search the forum for more info

    I have doubts about the holden intake being all that superior to the f-body intake in an NA set up. While the center/side inlet would provide better air distribution( and help the engine run smoother) it's plenum doesn't really apear any larger then the f-body plenum. If the plenums are similar in size you wouldn't see noticable HP gains, maybe alittle from better distribution, but not worth the money. It's probly already been discused here, but I haven't seen any actual numbers on the internal volume of the holden plenum.If it's large enough to provide 100% displcement volume or not. Any one got that info?

    Plenum volume is only one part of the formula for intake manifold effects on horsepower. Look more at intake runner length/volume, profile and angle of the runner going to the cylinder head and how well it works with the cylinder head intake port/valve, then you have the fuel mixture distribution leading up to the back side of the valve. From what I've gathered from those that have had both in their hands, the f-body intakes are sub-par in comparison. To you, it might be minor gains, but when you start moving to maximum effort builds, it pays dividends to make sure all cylinders are getting the proper amount of air delivered.

    Very true, but the bigest problem with the f-body intake is how badly the plenum is undersized. While intake runner length/volume can have a significant effect on your engine's torque rpm range and hp, if your plenum is vastly undersized it still chokes the motors ability to breath. No doubt the holden intake is better then the f-body intake, and I probly mis-worded my thought in my earlier post. From what I've seen, getting a holden set up here in the US is pretty costly . If the Holden's plenum is similar in size to the F-body's, then it still doesnt entirely solve the intake's biggest issue in an NA build. Question then would be, are the improvements of using a holden intake worth the cost of getting one ? I'd love to see some flow chart data between the two manifolds, if anybody's got it. I tried looking myself, but couldnt find any...
