upgrading intake manifolds to 3.0

ppeople is ir true that switching to 3.0 intake manifolds adds like 17 bhp
andd i heard that the position of the intake manifolds on the engine affexts the power they provide either at higher revs for top position like ours or on leave from idle for lower positioned manifolds any insights...

Reading your previous posts, including this, sound like you should have bought a 156 GTA instead of this 2.5V6. Why don't you consider an ECU remap, air filter, and exhaust kit? It's likely you'll gain about 17 bhp if not more on a V6.

BTW, have you fitted those Brembo on your car yet? wink

Checkout this information before you change anything!
Squadra Tuning 156 V6

"During the development we discovered that when only the intakerunners are replaced the mixture will be too lean during full throttle situations.
That's why we really do NOT recommend to do only the intakerunner modification."
