My new toy (TFC) is ready to go.

I just can't go for the first drive tonite as i've had about eight too
many XXXX bitters . Looks fast. haha. Any others that
have changed from the weiand to a TFC or FW, what sort of power gains have you made? Also, to the few guys running the hirise and the shaker
still, can you please post a pic of the modified shaker base. I really don't
want to lose the shaker.(ps brenx, i had to copy the CVR bracket )

Re: My new toy (TFC) is ready to go.

Dude - start eating your Baroccas now. That looks awesome. Can't wait to see the results.

Ha - thats the same air filter I am using!! Modified shaker = hornet How much does that one foul the bonnet by? Mine sticks out about 2" (weiand + 2" spacer). Fell into the too hard basket to mod the shaker.

It does stick out a fairbit. I have a 1/2 plastic type spacer.
The best part i have found is how responsive it is now off
idle. The TFC does have a lot smaller port openings than the
weiand, so probably due to that. It feels a lot stronger everywhere,
but its the off idle performance i am liking at the moment

Re: My new toy (TFC) is ready to go.

I just fitted an active hi rise manifold to my xy, i had the same issue as you xdclevo, i didnt want to lose the shaker. I managed to make it fit under the bonnet with a few mods, by firstly cutting the shaker down and then finding a filter to fit. A k&N filter with an xtreme top is the way to go.
