I'm getting close to finishing my big turbo build and just found out IE no longer makes the 60mm-80mm TB adapter plate for the 80mm TB I just got. So I say screw it, new intake manifold it is. No point being cheap about things at this point lol.

I know about IE's large port intake and SEM motorsports as well, are there any others I'm missing? I noticed I cant use the phenolic spacer with IE's manifold, not sure about SEM as it doesnt say on their website.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Cheers!

I like sem over ie. Ie has gotten a bit sloppy as of late from what friends in the industry have told me. That said my buddy's i.e. is a very very nice piece and massive. While the sem looks alot more oem.

Other options would be apikol which is cheaper but not a massive upgrade and similar to the homebrew ones people make from oem runners. I'm sure there's other ones but sem gets my vote and is what I'll be running.(they will take less than buy it now on eBay too)
