Drilling and tapping stock intake manifold

Just wondering anyone here has tried drilling/tapping the stock intake manifold....wondering if the cast aluminum will tap well.

It will be a real fine thread, M8 X 0.75.

nice! man, how are you going to monitor each of the jets? Don't tell me you're going to buy 3 flow meters...

I don't have any direct experience tapping cast Al, so I can't really help you there. Easier to tap than cast iron, but at the same time be a bit more delicate perhaps?

you better post some pics when you've got this setup worked out!

thru the aquamist dds3. i'll set the window of operation - too high flow = leak, too low flow = one or more jets clogged. anywhere outside the set flow, the system will not allow boost to build above wastegate - ~12psi on stock WG.

91 octane here in tucson is just no fun

If you screw up and need an extra stock IM with all the lines, sensors, and solenoids and TB still intact, GSC has one but for about $200
