    I don't know, sorry.

    After I fitted my FMIC, I noticed a lot less heat-soak and thus producing better times.

    The heat-soak into the inlet manifold is the next biggest issue. My exhaust manifold cools down quicker than the inlet manifold, to the point that I can touch the exhaust side well before I can touch the inlet side.

    MPSgarage also sell an item like that. I'll be looking at getting one very soon I think.

    Heatsoak is only an issue when stationary. After a run down the qtr. the intake temp and plenum are cool to the touch anyway. It's the temp before the run that is critical.

    No updates really, car has PB of 13.4@106, this was with the setup you see in this thread.
    havnt been back to the track, no new mods and clutch is gettin a bit spongy and tyres need replacing again.

    She just gets thrashed daily now, my Corolla is my strip project now, maybe once my finances get sorted again i will play round with the MPS, im keeping a good eye on the other projects in Auz and OS and see what advances are being made. I dont have the cash backup to be tryin too many new ideas atm. I break this car im screwed lol.

    Will post up any changes in the future tho, looking at a few cosmetic things, not my usual thing but hey...
