It's in! Currently Installed with 5 bolts for now. Had to run to the hardware store to grab some clamps for the vacuum hoses and two 130mm bolts. The 200mm bolts I ordered are perfect with the 12mm spacers. I'll have to remove or drill a hole in the cowell to install the far rear bolt at some point. The car idles and runs really great & feels very smooth. There's also more growl to the engine note. There 'might' be a 'slight' loss of low end torque BUT the torque curve feels more even. I couldn't hit red line around town so I can't give a full assessment just yet.

Well it's been over a month. Here's the rundown:
I haven't noticed a definitive power increase. (Headers might change that)
There is a 'very' slight loss of low end torque.
I can't tell if the MPGs have improved due to the cold weather.
The best things about the CPR6 Manifold are the way it looks and the way it sounds.

Would would sell the cpr6 and the overkill throttle body?

Hey man thanks for the interest. I am looking to sell the car as a whole. It's still my daily driver and the CPR6 + Larger Throttlebody combo make it a nicer car to commute in (also the 3.27 diff pairs beautifully with the CPR6). I have a set of 6mm intake spacers that I'll be paring with the existing 12mm ones. Should be just enough space .....hopefully lol!
