  • installing front facing plenum

    Well i decided to finally clean up my engine since my clutch went. im thinking about going front facing plenum but want some advice on what all needs done in order to install one? throttle cable? throttle body? hoses? fuel rail? i/c piping (have front mount and the hole is below washer fluid reservoir, is that the correct spot for front facing?) basically any input on what all needs to be modified or changed in order to install one. thanks!

    Its a fun job.. going to need a longer throttle cable. different throttle body,
    You can stay with the stock rail, just be careful when you take it out.. i broke mine.

    Here is a pic of my setup that is just about done.

      Yeah was just checking your car out at evolution today. Its looking pretty good! Same with felix's rb30 build! Anyways, decided to stick with stock plenum for now just so that the cars up and running again but will definitely be switching to the front facing in the near future.

          Unless your building serious power your don't need one. The gains aren't huge right off the batt. I agree it looks super nice but not worth the hassle

            That's exactly why I'm not doing a front facing Plenum on my rb20 when I got to install the bigger Turbo. Waiting for the built rb25 I'll be doing during the winter. That when I'll install one.

              its not any trouble at all, its just simply a new learning experience. i love working on my car much more than i actually like to drive it but i hate when my DD is down for some work... but in time i will definitely be switching over from stock. along with a big top mount single, bigger injectors, stand alone, etc..

                as for this, i have read numerous times when i was looking into this that you lose some bottom end but gain more on the top end. number wise, i couldnt tell ya.
