Re: using srt manis on 5.7 who did it?
I'm going with an '09 Eagle intake manifold...has ports not unlike that of the 6.1L...flows just as good and it is plastic! I have a phenolic spacer that mates the 5.7L head ports to the intake manifold ports. Crank This Performance also makes a spacer for this application. I just bought the Stainlessworks catback with true x-pipe to mate up to my AR headers. I'm hoping to get into the shop for the install in the next couple of weeks.
I'll let you all know how it performs. I'm going to put in the billet TC from Builder Bill prior to installing the modified valve body to see how each performs sepparately. If all goes well, these items will be available from Paramount Performance (Bill), for I am one of two test mules for the 545RFE.
