Intake manifold

This might be a really stupid question, but does anyone know if anything major can be done to an intake manfold to get some extra ponys? I have one just sitting in my garage and was just curious.

it will prolly give minimal gains with a stock TB cuz that will still be the limiting factor of air flow
a pretty good thread regarding that...

I've seen people knife out their T-Bodies as well, but don't know if actually yields and ponies.

Didn't know there were otherndvd collectors on PZ, I got all the Tech videos as well as alot of others...And actually spoke to them at HIN as they were mad chill.

I think I'll start a thread to display my collection of Import DVD's...

If your car runs, you have a throttle body.

Upgrading the TB probably won't give huge gains on the dyno sheet, but will definatly yield much improved throttle response.
