    Making a new intake for my 2015 SRA Atom.

    Ok, like most of us, not thrilled with the factory intake. I have a much better solution almost done.
    I've attached a few pics. Should be done by next week.
    Oh, I put a RBC manifold on my K24Z7 Atom.
    Very challenging to make it fit under the bodywork. Also, you have to able to assemble it in the car. Another challenge.
    Here are the pics.

    FYI. Pegasus Racing has a 3" silicon hose u-bend just like this. With one end trimmed 3/4", it fit like a glove.

    Any updates on this? I can vouch that the RBC intake manifold will not fit in a Brammo Atom without either custom engine mounts or making clearance on the firewall tube-frame member... The RBB (Acura TSX) intake manifold will fit if you're looking for more midrange though...

    How much interference does the RBC have to the firewall frame?

    The newer RRC manifold is about 10mm narrower (eyeball measurement) than the RBC. The RRC also has a significant flange that mounts to the head, it can be resurfaced gaining another 2-3mm.

    Make sure to use the factory metal intake manifold gasket that doesn't add any depth compared to the plastic/composite gaskets.
