    D16Z6 Intake Manfold >>> D14 engine

    Someone is selling a D16Z6 Intake Manifold and was wondering if this is a good upgrade as im looking for a slight upgrade and also to open more avenues in the induction choices. I've seen that Dodo website lol and was wondering if its too much work (as in gathering the parts) or is it worth just putting that money towards a B18/B20? Bear in mind the B18/20 wnt come into fruition until next year and problems this time next year (not Xmas Eve but you know what I mean lol)

    I've done it cost around 50 in total not including a air filter.. Although i can't drive yet so as for the much difference it made i don't know lol

    Air Filter? U mean the OEM airbox? What bits do you need dude?

    Yea because you can't use your D14 airbox and I used the d16z6 throttle body rotar, fuel rail, throttle body cable and a few coolent pipes. You re-use your D14 throttle body and injectors and make sure you have a new throttle body gasket and intake manifold gasket.

    just give it a crack pal,ploan it out set aside a few hours worse comes to worse you have to install your old set up back and wiat to get someone to fit it for you but if you give it a shot yourself you'll most likely get it done.don't be afraid of getting your hands dirty.
