Response to Re: Hoovering vs Charging Rhino

Power characteristic is more of a concern to me than numbers.

But having written that, I have no problem helping the charging rhino charge a little harder either.

I do have my reservations about cutting down the plenum divider.

I would be curious if the flow in the 4 "lagging" runners can be brought up without shaving down the plenum divider.

If not, I'd like to know how shaving the divider affects the manifold vacuum at idle & low rpm and how it affects the powerband; indicated by how low in rpm the motor can be loaded on the dyno. If the motor can be loaded on the dyno just as low with the plenum divider cut down as it can with the plenum divider full height, AND if the effect on vacuum is minimal, then I'm all for cutting down the divider. If not, then I would prefer to keep the divider full height rather than bringing the flow up in the 4 "lagging" runners.

Dan will you be attending the POCA rally this year?
