I know you wanted to keep the TVIS, but removing
it ain't that bad. Nothing a bit of tuning will solve.
You are going to have to tune a but with a new
intake anyways.

I do not miss mine. But if I did it again, I Might
keep it.

Sell the Ross, get a ChrisK to your specs ?

Well after talking to Tom at Ross, it appears that having TVIS spacer
may make it hit the firewall, also its canted to the right because Tom
said the factory manifold is not centered (i.e.. a problem) and the Ross
is. I think it can still work if it doesnt hit the firewall with a spacer or
gutted TVIS plate.

SO, can anyone measure the distance between the firewall and the
back of the factory intake manifold. Knew I shouldnt have sold all
my other alltracs until I got this one running

This may end up going on my MR2 yet

I don't have any problem...........but then again I am running a FMIC. I CAN tell you though, that you don't want to try and use the TVIS spacers with this manifold though. You will be into the ABS tubing at the firewall is you choose to do so.

Bill, Saved

Thanks. For this manifold to work it WILL need a spacer, else neither
top mount intercooler will fit. The intake pushes the TB too far forward.
I think I will get a spacer and see what happens upon install, its not
like its going anywhere fast anyways.
