My Version of the Ghetto Blaster!!!!(installed pic)

Took me about 5 hours and around $100.00

Parts list:

stock intake 96-99-$30
3" ABS pipe-$5
3" end cap-$2.50
3 to 2.5 cap-$3
permatex plastic weld-20 (used three tubes to make it then two more to finnish it to make it look better)
plastic paint-$5
brass fittings-$5
sanding wheels for dremmel $10

I followed Vitors design on the other forums.

So far I have Auto-X it once and drove it with a realy bad clutch that caused the motor to shake so bad that the power steering belt jumped of the track and shreded. But the intake was fine. :twisted

hopefully your only kidding. I wouldn't make the runners much shorter. It would kill your low end more then the length I have allready does.

I meant shorter than the stock, not much shorter than yours, sorry for the miscommunication. How short are your runners anyway? Do they go into the plenum?

Yes they do. Like I said I followed Vitors design and it works realy well.

The runners are around 7-8 inches long.

Havn't dynoed it yet but the power band is very smooth and consistant. It actualy feals better then the R/T Ernie Manifold I had.

Still kinda dirty from removing the injector humps and still need to smooth it out from removing them.

I havn't ran it sense removing the injector humps but excpecting it to flow better.

I want to compleatly smooth out the transistion from runner to plenum so that it looks like one peice.

I wouldn't use your only intake. also use a 1st gen intake as your base its much easier. If you notice the head flange on yours doesn't have all the bolts and the runners have that anoying crap on the sides. Other reason to use a 1st gen one is they are all over E-bay where as the 2nd gen ones are not.

I'll definately be using a 1st gen intake for the runners. Just wanna figure out a good length for them. I wanna try and make it a little smoother, paint it black, etc. I might head up to a J-yard to get the intake mani.

If I can find the time tomarow I'm going to put it back on. I was going to do a bunch of work to it to make it look all preety but my lazy ass is not motiviated to do it. So going to just slap it on like it is.

Note on durabillity. So far it has been through one Auto cross with no issues. And even more suprising when my clutch died the engin was shaking so bad on the drive home when would engage the clutch that the power steering belt jumped off the track and shreded. But the intake was fine. :twisted:

I will take more pics of it on the car as requested.

ofcourse there is a bit of low end loss with the runners only being about 4" in length but 5k+ soars like a raped ape :shock:

Both parts are plastic upper as well as lower. I used a jig saw to cut the plastic one but didn't turn out as well as I would have liked had to do some trimming with my dremmel to get the runners the same length. I would suggest taking it to a shop and asking them to cut it with a band saw that way there all the same length.

but how do you use the 1gn manifold on the 2gn head?....from the looks of it, it looks like theres more bolts and in different places then the 2gn manifold.... i ported my 2gn manifold like you did on that one about a week ago and then i was on dodgeforum and they said that i destroyed my manifold i was like o shit....happy to see others are doing this aswell.... i will most likely make this very soon upon your answer to my questions....and i take it you used epoxy to connect the two? and is that pvc pipe or what?....sorry for so many questions... thanks

What if you were to adjust to sat a 5 or 5.5 in long runner? Id assume that would pull the power to a lower rpm....correct?

I read the other thread and was wondering if someone could supply a link or explanation to the ghettoblaster intake and what benefits would we see from such a setup compared to say the stock intake or indy manifold?
And is this manifold the same thing as the ghetto blaster?

Thanks guys

indy intake manifolds have been proven to be too high-flowing, meaning that it will net you gains, like a magnum manifold with no butterflies would, you will lose some mid and low end power because there is too much volume, not enough velocity, Thus why most people go to the route you have linked there.. if you look those sheet metal intake manifolds say AMM before the name, That stands for all motor mike who is well known throughout the custom manifold business, Well for us neon lovers anyhow.

If your looking into a custom manifold think about this first, a stock magnum head, can outflow a race ported Base sohc head. So before you go too crazy on what gets air into, and out of your motor, you might wanna look into a new head.. just my .02cents

not completly true.

the intake ports are the exact same, the exhaust ports are different. thats where the mag out flows a standard single cam head. but to say a mag exhaust port will out flow a standard sohc ported exhaust port is not true. and like ive said over on the org i think i can get a standard single cam exhaust port to flow very similar to a ported mag exhaust port. about the intake ports............they are the same so they will be eequal if ported the same.

it would be much more expensive to have someone port your base sohc head.. then it would be to just pick up a mag head and go from there.... thats all im saying.. this way you dont need to have the head ported at all.. or not till down the road when your really crankin out the ponies... now if you can get someone to P&P it cheap for ya, then have them do both sets of ports... and you'll be better off then just a mag head...

just dollar for dollar, if your looking for a better flowing head, you might as well just pick up a magnum head.. since around where i live its like 600+ dollars to have someone P&P my head, and about 400 for the Magnum Head itself. just cheaper for most to go and get a magnum head..
