The powder coating on the inside looks to have a few spots missing, will this hinder its tolerance to methanol? Just curious not hating or anything as I'll probably be picking one up whenever it comes out for the N55.

It actually looks like some type of solution that has dried on and left a white residue on the black finish, not actually spots missing. I'll probably try to wipe this down before installing with some degreaser to see if I can't get a clean black finish inside.

Ahh I see. Hopefully it's not missing powder coating or black finish due to a bad spray on. Man imagine if phoenix made the angled intake design like others used to in the past. Oh man that would look so sweet.

These are anodized, they are submerged in solution so it shouldn't have spots. Probably left over cleaning stains from whatever it was, doesn't do anything wipes right off.

Just realized the orings we shipped with a few of these are 1/4" longer so more of a PITA to work with than intended. Have some other options coming in and will send em once we verify they fit. If you're in a pinch you can always reuse the stock ones or trim these ~1/4".

Haven't installed anything yet, but I did mock everything up. The gaskets were a pain to work with, but I managed to get all 6 installed really snug. Thought they were designed to fit that way honestly as they seem like they'd work perfectly. I'll keep an eye on this thread to see the other option though.

Out of curiosity, if you haven't upgraded your injectors and are having issues, why wouldn't you go this route? at $250 each, this is cheaper with injectors than stock....what am I missing?

These 6 PI injectors run in addition to your standard 6 DI injectors, they don't replace the DI injectors.

Hi!

I'm just wondering,


1. If i don't intend to go the PI route, can i still use this Intake Manifold? what would be required? do i need to cap off the holes where the injectors would have been?


2. If i intend to go Port Injection, what do i need to purchase on top of the "intake manifold with 750cc injectors and fuel line kit" ?

You'd need to cap off the PI ports if you don't want to run PI.

The Intake manifold, injector kit, and the Jb4 PI controller. What are your end power goals? You'll need at least a stage 2 lpfp.

I am already running a stage 2 Lpfp. So I just need to get the intake manifold $999 option and a jb4 PI controller?

So if i don't want to run pi for fuel but want dpmi i would be able to use this manifold and purchase the meth option but not injectors? Or would i purchase the injectors and run meth through them, not sure If injectors are better than nozzles for meth ive tried searching never found clear answer.

Yes same manifold and injectors can be used for PI or MPI. If doing MPI you'd not use the fuel line Y and instead run a line to your meth pump. No additional solenoid would be required.

Whether you use PI or MPI depends on what your E85 situation is like. If you have easy E85 access PI, if not then MPI.

Does the jb4 pi controller have the ability to sense if an injector is shut because of dme. Part of me thinks as long as the jb4 stops all meth or cuts timing once that happens everything should be ok . I just always read that pi can take out a cylinder that way but i would think you thought of something for that.

It can do a lot of things, but it only actually does what we program it to do. It shuts down PI if the DME shuts down a cylinder in around a second.

Hey Terry, is shutting down in around a second actually fast enough to save an engine from a misfire and super lean condition? Not trying to put you on the spot legally or anything, just wondering how quickly pistons get melted when you go super lean at high power with an injector failure.
