164 V6 24V upgrade to 42mm runners
Ooooh I'm all excited today!!! I just received my runner upgrade to give me those 20 extra ponies I've been waiting all summer for.
For those not in the know, the only difference between the post '93 164 Super V6 (210 BHP) and the 164 QV (230 BHP) was the different intake runners used.
The non QV engine has its intake runners choked down to 39mm and the QV gets what the engine actually needs at 45mm.
I'm not going to fit them just yet as I'm going to get the heads and plenum painted bright (or maybe matt) red and I'm waiting for a spare plenum to arrive in the post so I don't have to take my car off the road while I get the paint job right!
For anyone interested, all you need is the following from AR:
60668794 x 3
60668765 x 3
Next up: Remus exhaust, Squadra chip and I should be good for 245 BHP. Racing cams to follow.
