Very nice very nice. No I haven't seen that yet but I have been seriously considering a replacement intake from zz custom fab. So I could port the head better. That would be a step towards bwetter flow untik I'm ready to pull the head again and mill the intake off. Where did you see this?

P pump conversion with a 180 pump
Pump doesn't have a fuel plate, 4g springs, & full cut dv's, no afc, ect..
.093 fuel lines

custom ground cam
mahle pistons with .050 valve reliefs
balanced rotating assembly
8 x 11 injectors
ported head with 60lbs valve springs and 12mm studs
Pro 52
Polydyn header
stage 5 east coast diesel bullit automatic trans.
triple disk dunrite torque converter

It will bolt to the top of the ZZ intake too! just like the stock plate.
PM for details!

Not really. Anyone willing to invest in a better intake is better off figuring out how to center it and then increasing the flow.

How's the P7100-VP44, hybrid/wet dream coming?

Half a brain would give you the ability to know that the CAC tube alignment and hood clearance, heater grids, injection lines, TPS, ect. dictate the design and location as it is. The flow path IS straight into the head and is as large as possible while maintaining clearance and strength.
Please feel free to do it better YOURSELF, or STFU and go pee on someone else's parade! There are precious few who are forwarding the diesel concepts from BS to reality, and YOU contribute NOTHING @ the reality end of the spectrum.
Pump IS in development. Thanks for asking.

I have been testing one for over a year with a few different turbo/injector/box combos and it has helped control top-end EGTs and aided in spooling as well as evening up the EGTs between cylinders. Here is a shot of my stock plate before I changed it out, its easy to see why the Tunnel Ram flows better.

I have read many of your posts on a couple different boards and You dont seem to use the same "charming wit" you like to add to my threads.
Is there any particular reason you feel it is necessary to heckle me?
I dont recall flaming any of your threads.
