How does a lexmaul inlet manifold differ from a normal inlet?? I mean the power boxes, Mantzels etc all bolt straight to the lower inlet with the throttle bodies as close to the inlet ports as possible...thus making the inlet more freely flowing..

The lexmaul to me just looks like a fancier replacment to the standard inlet IMO as its not relocating the throttle body.

Do these give realistic gains? and how??

Im not being sarcy im just genuinely intersted on how these generate gains

Mine made a big difference, it removes all the little channels in the standard manifold, not as much gains as a power box etc, but still excellent.

Iv had both a lexmaul and a dbilas. Lexmaul is better for everyday driving as it kicks in lower in the revs

i have the dbilas and have never had any probblems with every day driving and made quite alot of difference on how the power was delivered, revved alot harder and kept pulling, whereas my old inlet just seemed 2 die

The Mantzel I have needs a raised limiter to really be beneficial.
