Well I saw that, but Im just curious as to the reasoning of removing them.
More power...

Plus they are, well used to be, an extremely cheap mod. If you stumble upon a set for under $100, they're a good deal. I was fortunate enough to find a set of billet delete plates for $90 shipped.

OK, so basically theyre just designed to flow better.

I guess what I was really trying to find out is what exactly the motor and those butterflies do. Im assuming they open up more depending on how much throttle you give?

yes, the butterflies open and close to cause a tumble of the airflow. the butterfly valves do take up space tho and thus, to a certain degree, restrict flow just with their presence. as rpms increasethe butterfly valvesopenup more. At near open or full openthey still restrict flowsomewhateven in profile.When you remove them entirelyyou remove that restriction.if you have taken out the butterfly valves then on the low end you do not get their benefit....that is why some folks are worried that they might lose HP on the low end.when you install some blowersyou will de-install these (like UDPs for example.)

why would you take them off once you get a blower?

I have a quick question,

I installed mine about 5 months ago. But I didn't tighten the intake manifold bolts to factory torque specs since I didn't have a torque wrench. I did tighten the bolts in the right order though.

So far, I haven't had any problems, would it be necessary to go back and torque them to specs?

You only take them off when you get a TS blower because delete plates are already attached to it.

example: saleen series VI has you remove factory manifold including CMCVs and replace with the Saleen blower/manifold.

This would not be the case with a Centri supercharger tho. Since that unit is installedprior to thethrottle body then itwould not necessitate removal of CMDPs if you had them already installed. In fact somemight even advise you toinstall CMDPsin a Centri install so that you remove the butterfly valves and it would be one less item to fail under higher pressue/boost. I can't speak from personal experience and would defer to the centri crew. another item to read up on......

Both twin screw and roots blowers replace the entire intake manifold.

Bringing this one back from the dead, but I have these plates on my car and would like to go back to stock.

Any chance one of you guys would be interested in a trade?

TacoBill, I actually have been following your vids on YouTube for awhile now. I got my gears at my house (4.10s) but have not got them installed yet. HOw big of a difference did they make for you in your opinion? I have been fairly unuimpressed by my mods so far.

Probably wouldn't hurt. I torqued them without a torque wrench. Went back and checked with a torque wrench later on, and most were pretty damn close!

You can get to the majority of them without much work, so if you have the wrench, why not? Shouldn't take you more than 10-15 minutes to get the fuel rails moved out of the way to the point where you can get to all the bolts.

Yep, remove the motor & arms, just let the plug hang behind the motor.
