    I am planning on replacing my intake manifold and throttle body. Right now I have the stock P30 manifold on my B16A. Is a Type-R mani that much better than the P30 or should I go with the Skunk-2? Is there a better one that anyone has experience with? Right now I'm all motor but plan to go turbo pretty soon, if that matters... Thanks for all your help!

    Found these...

    well.. the Skunk2 was based on the type r manifold. .. but you wont get much gain without headwork..

    I have heard that the skunk2 mani isn't shit without a nice set of cams and a p&p man. I have also heard of people doing the itr swap and gaining a couple pwnies. I say buy the skunk2 if you plan on a set of more aggressive cams and such.

    Yeah, I plan on getting some cams and upgrading my valve train. Not a P&P though. Going turbo...

    well if you're gonna go turbo you'd benefit from the Type R or Skunk2 Mani very much.

    How do you figure? It's forced induction... You're bottleneck is still going to be your ports, so I can't see you gaining that much just by swapping manifolds, unless you are choking the manifold before you choke the port. Are the p30 runner x-sectional areas smaller than the port x-sectional area? Something to consider, you might want to get a port and polish job, or at the least, do a mild one yourself.

    Furthermore, the victorX manifold has been dyno'd to be the best intake manifold for turbo apps. All other manifolds are basically either a ITR knock of, or an ITR improvement. If you can get an ITR manifold for cheap, I would just get it, but don't expect any significant gains without doing headwork and having a decent exhaust manifold and exhaust.

    What about this one? It's only $160 bucks and says "Proven 7-8HP bolt on performance on DOHC B-series engines!"... I'm sure that's N/A, but wouldn't it be more with turbo?
