whats the difference between say the velos tube and a lexmaul inlet manifold? in terms of price and power gains?

also if i fit either of these with a full system and 4-2-1 manifold willi have to have the engine mapped or tuned and how much does that cost?

I have the Torq Tube on my x16xe - I gained 21bhp with the TT for 275. If you want the TT fitted, the cost is 445.
However, if you are a member of the VxlSCC, Velos will gine you 5% off those prices

Joff should be able to help you regarding the Lemaual item....wherever his is?

VxlSCC is the Vauxhall Sports Car Club - www.vxlscc.co.uk

The power delivery is different on the Lexmaul item - the maximum power GAIN isn't at maximum power, and you gain 10-15bhp throughout the entire rev range, whereas with the Mantzel etc. you need to rev it hard for the extra power.

To anyone who has the torque tube, what would you say the build quality is like?
How easy was it to fit?

Looking at either the Velos Torque Tube or perhaps a Manzel PowerBox
