Hi Guys

For those who are interested in polished aluminium Plenum's for G series and 4Z series I will be making these. Prices will be announced soon but for the moment here are a few pictures.

These Plenum's can have bell mouths if you wish. They have 12mm CNC machined feet and BOLT directly to existing runners.

I will also be making a new style that gets rid of the stock runners and instead of the runners having a 90 degree bend in them they will run straight into a custom Plenum.

If you have any more enquires send me an email at josh@metalcraftmarine.com.au or call me during business hours on 0408 008 537.

Thanks

Josh

If the factory one fits then so should this. The throttle body points down towards the drivers side headlight. Top is only tack welded on so the plenum can still be trimmed down if need be.

Just waiting on Jazza to come pick it up for a pre fit. Will have more pics then

good looking plenums Josh ive been wanting a new one for some time now for my race car!
i designed one quite similar in solid works but never found the time to build it i run an xf throttle body on my car.

one that bolts straight to the head could be very interesting too looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
i would be interested to get one of those babies


cheers J

you could have smaller studs instead of those stupid rodeo ones.
it would be good to be able to take the inlet manifold off without
having to take off the whole head!

Just some more pics of these plenum's. Nice round edge at the start/end of the runner was achieved and throttle body flange turned out really nice IMO.
