Intake Manifold fitment..

Would it be possible to fit the B234R intake manifold to a B204L? The heads are the same, no?

Reason being, will I gain any performance points doing this mod? (hx40 build on the way). Port matching and polish along with a bigger TB

Anything is possible. As it sits, the throttle is in the wrong place so you'd need to re-plumb most of the vacuum and cooling lines, as well as the cruise control (if you plan to keep it. Not sure there would be much of a benefit. The B234 intake is really designed for clearance to enable the engine to fit under a very low-slung hood....

Plumbing wont be a problem as i'm looking for the overall performance benefit of having a plenum type manifold than the top fed manifold the b204l has (although members are making some high hp numbers using the stock manifold)

People spoke about the 2.3 NA mani adding some torque.

im not sure i would use the Na manifold from a 2.3 NA ng900, or an NA 9000 the ng900 manifold tends to overcharge the middle two cylinders under boost, on this can cause a lean symptom on the middle two, resulting in melted parts

the NA 9000 manifold i always debate on, it does make power, and torque. But it also makes servicing the car a horrible experience. the NA 9000 manifold drasticly lowers intake temps, a large amount of the gain comes from this. and the gains are less significant with a big intercooler.

i like the b204 central intake the best.
