    Got my intake and throttle body ported by Bret Barber. What cannot be seen in the picture is how deep into the runners he gets.

    Shout out to Bret and all his people. They were quick to answer questions and quick turn around.

    As for performance? Haven't had it on track yet. My butt dyno says it's stronger from 3500-7200 with no loss of torque down low. If I ever get to a dyno I'll post up results....

    I think the guy is in Tucson. That would be northern Mexico. I could be wrong. :D

    It was $400 for the intake and throttle body, $250 for the intake alone. I haven't had it on a dyno but he claims 10-15 hp with the intake alone. I figure even if it's only 10, it's at least a $1000 cheaper than a CJ.

    I really wanted to keep the Boss a Boss. If I didn't care I'd do a ported 2018 intake from him. He claims almost the same peak power and rpm with a lot more torque than the ported Boss, for $600 intake included......

    Are you running a tune?
    OK I see AED in your signature.
    Did the porting require a tune? Change to old tune?

    I would most definitely take this dyno graph with a grain of salt,very optimistic dyno. I think it would be safe to say it is probably more in the area of 450 whp/390 wtq. I must apologize, I do not have a before graph...... February 2019 Dyno Chart.jpg
