So... IMS anyone?

I think I know what's happening this weekend! Excited to see how this goes. Any advice on installing this thing other than what the video says?

Thinking about one myself. It seems like a fun little project regardless of any gains.

You will notice a difference. I have documented 1.5 mpg increase too.

I guess I do have a question if anybody has thoughts. If I remember correctly, the IMS comes with a new lower gasket, but I have read about people reusing the upper gasket. I haven't priced one yet, but should a person consider replacing that with new while it's apart?

There is already a thread on here about this. I forget which one it is. It would be hard get a true dyno on these because they have a break in period. But I would be interested to know as well. Just gonna have to go with the old trusty "feels better to me test" hahaha

i think the upper gasket are o-rings I think. That is much more easily reused.

In RED. I went with BLACK. I'll be installing this summer when I do my spark plugs.
