I can feel the difference...nice sound ... i'm waiting on the new intake being designed by Grubbs...should be out in a month..just for the FX...They said that on there dyno days they didn't see any hp increase from the Z-tube and the pop charger..so I will wait..
The install on the plenum takes some time and there are some things that are not fully clear on the install directions.. But now that I did it no prob..If anyone has any questions or planning installing the plenum let me know.

The pics that u need to download from the crawford site is pretty clear...but I had to call him on a few things...like the 4 bolts that u need to screw in before putting on the crawford....also the top bolts are 2 different sizes...he never mentions that...so I thought I had a short bolt..but no big deal...everything is running fine...

I sent mine back with no regrets whatsoever. Unless you really want $200 sitting in your attic collecting dust forever, I'd recommend sending your core back. Trust me, you'll never have want for it again.

fancy this.......

as FI greatly increases intake pressure, wouldnt a smaller intake tract help to sustain a higher pressure volume???

-there i go again.... overthinking-

Well, this is one of those topics best researched on My350Z. The plenum design isn't nearly as critical when going FI, but there are centrifrugal blower owners running with the plenum and like it. There are also one or two plenum designs coming up that are geared specifically toward FI, so you may want to look around a bit first and ask the gurus over there.

how many people forgot to install the 4 bolts on the bottom half of the plenum.. in the instructions he only mentions using 2 bolts.
So its not a big deal but this could save time...y do it twice..

He must not have updated the instructions for the v5 plenum. In the earlier version, you only install two bolts underneath, the rest are long bolts installed from above.

There were 4 bolts in the bag ..then 2 long bolts for the top of the plenum....y would anyone leave out the extra bolts...your suppose to use all the bolts I guess to seal up the plenum...how many people forgot that..and the long bolts are 2 different sizes....he doesn't mention this at all.... for a min I thought I had a short bolt..
