    hey wasup people ive been wanting to get one of those manifolds named above and i was just wondering is it worth getting a skunk2 over a type r isnt supposed to be a type r copy but with bigger runners or something? so which would give me more hp gain is basically what im tryin to find out. Oh and i was wondering would there be any problem in putting in itr valves in a b16 and would it add any hp?

    the ITR valves are silghtly lighter. but if you are going to spend the money, you might as well throw in a little extra and get something even better

    If you are interested, I have a brand new Skunk2 manifold for sale. I no longer need it because it will not fit my GSR head. LMK if you want it, I will sell if for a lot less than a company and it is brand new.

    Get the one that is cheaper, the difference between the two is negligable.

    i would get whichever is cheaper. the type r unit might have some unnecessary nipples for vacuum lines depending on whether or not you get the usdm/jdm unit. the skunk2 mani will also have provisions for either style iac valve.
