It would be similar to this:

-and-

http://www.motordyneengineering.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=22&products_id=47
for you guys who live in colder and climates

When I was searching for mods, I saw two things...expression of chilling the intake manifold and no signs of a phenolic spacer available for the titan. And, the throttle body coolant bypass.

Motordyne is very reknowned to the G35 and 350Z market. They specialized in intake plenum spacers and a thermal barrier (Isothermal) gasket which buffers a lot of the heat exchange from the engine block. There are a lot of awsome testimonials about their products, including my own on my own car.

I've since found interest in this an thought that maybe there is a market for this with the VK guys. So I've contacted Motordyne and expressed a certain interest. Tony Collette of Motordyne said if there could be at least 10 (including myself) people to get on this...he would go on about and researching the possibilities of adding the VK to his product list.

Anyone interested?

Thanks.

Looks interesting.

50, 110, 295 or 320 bucks. ???

We can stick with the valved TBS Bypass, to keep it warm in the winter time. Which would we use? Looks like an easy thing to make, basically just a thick gasket to reduce thermal transfer, using a thermal blocking material. Having a commercially made kit is a big plus.

How difficult to install? Our plenum gets kind of buried in the back.

not tough to install as I switched to and 2007 intake manny but wonder what the benefit would be since the Manifold is plastic. Also one would be that your adding to the runner length as well.

I have a TB intercooler now and it worth 5Hp.

I dont know what it's like to remove the intake manifold. I would imagine it wouldnt be too hard of a job. But being I just bought my Titan just a few nights ago...I am totally clueless. But the bug is there to mod it to the best of myh wallet's abilities.

I'm not, at all, sure how much the kit would cost. For the VQ motors, the gasket that goes between the upper and lower plenum alone costs $35. And for the kit itself is $50 (first link) which includes the coolant control valve and these spacers that go in between the two halves of the upper plenum. The second link is geared towards people in much colder climates.

The general idea is all about thermal control. This has been VERY sucessful in the VQ market and I want to share and see if there is enough interest that Motordyne could possibly make them for us.

so...anyone???

interesting...didnt know the manifolds were plastic. ABS? or some kind of composit like in the the corvettes? I would probably see this be a beneficial gain for earlier titans? for those who wouldnt want to shell out much for a newer manifold. and what's a throttle body intercooler? never heard of something like that.
