Just get the Diamante intake manifold. It works just fine. The only reason I would get one custom made is so that I can replace the spark plugs on the rear bank without having to take the manifold off.

+1. cheap easy, painless. keep the throttle body too so you don't have to ask about a performance throttle body lol. both together might give you 10.

Boostzealot had a custom one made by xtreme manufacturing I believe. I may be wrong about the name though.

Diamante manifold, any year works. I went through both the early 97 and later 97+ manifolds. The only difference is there is an extra nipple on the later manfiold that you can cap off. Just hook up all your vac lines as needed and cap off the one thats left. Diamante tb works good two. Wish I hadn't destroyed my second one...

Anyone know exactly what RPW is doing? I frequent their site and they've been changing stuff around and taking products off and posting others. And for some reason there is no "Order" button on any of the things I want.

Well, like I said. I can't even buy off it. They've been reposting and if you search for a specific part you'll find it. But, I can't buy them.

their whole system seems broken. give it some time (so they can sort it out) and all should be well. (most companies phones are also handled by the server these days too.)

The search option is your best friend in this website. Here is a link for the Diamante Intake Manifold how to:

http://www.club3g.com/forum/performance/84668-how-diamante-manifold-conversion.html

Here is another link to the Diamante Throttle Body info

http://www.club3g.com/forum/3g-eclipse-gt-gts-specific/86912-diamante-throttle-body-swap.html

I’m not trying to sound like a dick, but you will encounter a lot of smart ass (stupid) people that will make fun of you and won’t help you at all in this website, especially, if you don’t search before posting a new thread. The truth is that most of the topics one can come out with have already been discussed in this website and can be found by using the search option. There is a lot of great info in this site, and I recommend you to search all you can in order to avoid getting harassed by the smart asses. This is just a friendly advice my man. Good luck with your plans. :yesway:

RPW was supposed to be changing sites or servers or something. So that could be the issue.

Well I hope they get it up and running. Its the only thing stopping me from finishing my race heads. All I need are the springs.

Per the manifold if you want to go unique and have some fun doing it you can make like me and some others and grab an XG350 manifold and have either a plenum or box plenum made for it. My FI project is taking so long I'm going to do that since I can get the manifold for 25$.
