Intake :Think Out Of The Box

Hi guys.
Sorry for the lacks of update. I'm quite busy nowadays so it is very hard for me to find time to write something. I still remember lot of 4G9X  Naturally aspirated engine user especially MIVEC always complaining that performance parts for the engine is not that much if compare to VTEC and yes.. it is true.

What i admire about the 4G9X engine user is their spirit to build the engine to be as fast as VTEC so they keep on doing research and develop custom parts for their engine and i think it is very good for the motorsport scenes.

In my country, which is Malaysia, most of the 4G9X tuner here think that one of the performance part that is lack of variety in the market for the engine is intake manifold. So, they find ways on how to upgrade it with the parts which is readily available for the market. I think they are quite creative indeed :)

Below some of the picture of 4G9X series engine using aftermarket parts which originally made for Honda and Toyota :)

Creativity is the key point of this post. I think you can already guess what my next upgrade is *hint. See you in the next post :)


  1. I bet you're going for ITBs.. :-)

  2. thats my dream intake setup but i think i wont go for ITB with my current setup :)

  3. a lot of benefit going for ITB setup esp if you do it properly. I can hook you up with Jenvey Dynamics setup if you are keen. Its not the cheapest, but so far I have no complaints :)

  4. i really love your intake setup bro mugil but i think in order to make full use of it, i need a new high compression setup like your 93. other than that i need to have standalone ems.. which cost a bomb :( btw have u sold your SP? if you wanna let go parts by parts dont hesitate to inform me :) thx again bro!

  5. what about low end power.. does ITB has good power at low rpm/?

  6. depends on the setup. but i heard that ITB low end power is not as good but high end power is very good.
