    Technocraft Fitment Issues

    Now, we all have all seen the Technocraft S65 intake and on the surface it is beautiful. I really like technocraft products for aesthetics, but for performance, there is nothing to gain and possibly something to lose.

    Look at this pic:

    Gorgeous, right?

    Now look up close:

    See those gaps? Not going to help you, the setup needs to be closed. I learned this myself the hard way when I had a couple loose fittings and the hose slipped off the plenum and I wondered where all my power went. Did not understand until I popped the hood.

    Now, there are conflicting reports on the technocraft intake. Technocraft has their own dyno results stating power gains. Independent results have shown losses. Additionally, I know a certain posted who tried this intake on a stroker motor, no gains at all. Now, which would you trust, independent dynos or ones a manufacturer provides to sell parts?

    A lot of guys have been complaining about the fitment. I think people should be aware this is more of a cosmetic mod than performance.
