    the sunk2 manifold is a copy of the ITR manifold

    it has SLIGHTLY larger runners and flows SLIGHTLY better

    if you have an ITR manifold then the differences are not enough to make one worth it

    but for others it is a great choice

    the ITR manifold will only fit on a B16 or ITR head.... with modification you can get it to work on the LS and GSR heads.... but why bother.... Skunk2 has models specificly designed to fit B16, LS, and GSR heads

    :withstupid:

    Also, don't forget the AEBS intake manifold, half the price and has spanked the ITR/Skunk2 in every dyno comparison I have seen. Not as pretty, but works very well.

    depends on the setup. I have a JG on mine and I love it. My buddy has tried both and had better luck with the JG. DON'T GET ME WRONG, I love Skunk2 products. Its up to you. I just giving other options.

    I have done some research. AEBS intake mani is better then skunk and itr.

    But then again it doens't deliver the hp shown in their dyno chart

    Ok lets do a quick review.

    The type r manifold is best for NA bc it is made right.

    Both the AEBS and Skunk2 are ported like complete crap (the aebs is the biggest POS ive ever seen, just look at the ports and tell me otherwise). Since for those that do a b18c swap, and have the b18 head, the skunk2 is the closest thing next to the type r so I would get it.

    For an allmotor setup, the JG and venom etc. have a huge plenum that makes powerloss for NA. Get all your facts right and lets move on.
