looks the same as my set up, and if thats true all you can do is put a screen on it and watch who you get behind.

Yes we found a filter that K&N makes thats why we built the manifold this way. It also allows ac if you want to put ac back on your car, and also all runners are super close to equal length. Its pretty hard to measure them, so this weekend we are going to do a volume test, where I fill the runners up with sand to make sure they all have pretty much the same volume. But the runners are about 24" of pipe.

A flapper style grinding pad. On my manifold and another style Im building for another car there is going to be another polishing wheel that will be used. It will not have the little "groove" like stuff grinded into the pipe.
