Default CR-Z Gato Performance Intake Manifold

Here is a look at the Gato Performance Intake Manifold we had fabricated for one of our customers. I wanted to share this with all the CR-Z enthusiast because we had notice the lack of performance parts for this car.

I assume this is for a turbo setup?

Not much in the way of parts available. Bisi has some head parts, Action has a clutch, Quaife has an LSD, MFactory has an LSD and final drives, and thats about it.

Yes there not much out there for CR-Z.This intake is for a turbo set up we are working on for a customer. One thing we did we is that you can use the Skunk 2 CR-Z Throttle Body with it.

The lsd's are supposed to be interchangeable with The k series there the same part numbers for a few companies so whatever is available for the k series as far as LSD you can use and where is this clutch the only one I've ever seen is the hks and the bisimoto spec one

It's not on Actions website, you can order it from any Action dealer.

You are correct Skunk2 does not make a throttle body for this application we are going to use the 06+ Civic DWB throttle body.

Here a semi turbo manifold as I called it for CR-Z. The reason why is done this way is so the customer can actually bring the turbo to the side in like some sort of sidewinder type of manifold. All you have to is weld a the rest of the ss tube and position the turbo any where you like.



Here is link where you can see the engine built.Ne Sleeves,Valves and a lot of other stuff done to the LEA1 Engine.
