v6 inlet pipes

are the 164 v6 inlet pipes/runners larger than my 156 v6? Will the 164 v6 inlet runners fit my 156 v6?

Many thanks

The Cloverleaf ones are bigger for sure, the Super ones, I'm not a hundred percent, but I think they are – though still smaller than the Cloverleaf ones.

Get 166/GTV/Spider/156GTA/147GTA 3.0/3.2 ones. These are the biggest.

do I need to get anything else to make them fit, or will they just bolt on?

will getting the gta plenum cover help things along?

Many thanks

They just bolt on, but you have to make sure you have the correct gaskets/mounting plates from the new pipes. At least I think that's correct, I did mine a couple of years ago now.

so the mounting plates are different from a 2.5 - 3.0/3.2?

What about the phelum?

Plenum's the same as far as I know, but I wouldn't be able to say that for sure.

For the 2.5 V6 you need to change the mounting plates when fitting the 48mm runners. For the 3.0 V6 you don't need to change anything, just the runners. Buy a pack of gaskets too as they are cheap and you may as well replace them.
