Re: Chi heads/intake

Okay Guys, I've decided to ditch my blower project... got enough projects of the 2 wheel variety at the moment... S I'm gunna go the classicaly proven path of Heads/cams/carbs...
Quick Question, does a 2V Weiand Xcellerator work with the CHI 185s? what about the bigger 218 CHIs?

Thanks
Ben

Re: Chi heads/intake

Yes, it works with both. I have one sitting atop of my 218cc CHI's.

The good thing about the weiand manifold is that it will fit under the hood.The bad thing is you,ll be giving up around 30 horsepower by using it and not going to the current generation of manifolds like the active,parker funnelweb and whatever is on the market.These manifolds prolly won,t fit under your hood either.

Re: Chi heads/intake

Brenden have you run both sets of heads 185 and 218cc.
also what size headers are you running on yours? im pulling my large tube headers 1 7/8 for the smaller. i dont want to lose any torque.

Re: Chi heads/intake

I don't honestly think there'd be 30hp difference. Considering XBWGN's running a weiand and has 252rwkw (close enough to 350rwhp). I reckon there would be lucky to be 5-10kw at the most @ the wheels. I'm guessing that 30hp you stated is at the engine though?

I'll find out eventually as I'll be running a CHI manifold and I've been told "yes, it does fit under the bonnet of XA-C's". I'll find out for myself and go from there. I'll also see if there is any noticable power difference.

I'm running the 218cc as the 185cc didn't suit my needs. 185cc would have been too restrictive. They would have needed more $ put into them. I run 1 3/4" headers 4-1's. As my plan is to have 408ci under my CHI's For the moment I'll play with the 351.

Re: Chi heads/intake

Brenx, what Extractors are you running? Pacemaker 4070s?
Is XBWGN running a slushbox?
Be interested to see if the CHI manifold does go underbonnet, and if it would fit on a Shakered XY... wonder how much a shaker can flow....

Re: Chi heads/intake

I run pacemaker 4070's 4-1's. XBWGN runs unbranded 4-2-1's. Yup he's running basically a stock C4. I've got more auto mods than him. He still runs the flexable band where I run a solid band.

I'll probably pick up a CHI manifold either later this year or early next. I'm in no hurry and I have other financial commitments anway.

It's tight under an XY bonnet and the shake requires loads of modifications to get it under bonnet. So you wouldn't want to go hacking up a genuine shaker.
