  • Sho Source Big Bore LIM

    So this is a post wondering who would be interested in a SHO Source big bore LIM. If we get a group together, it helps on price. Need 5 people. The question would be would people want to have new LIM that are machined and bored, or send your current LIM in to be machined and bored. Price for a new manifold machined is $350, to ship one to them and have it machined is $200. Please leave interest and which choice you want to do. Thank you.

    Not sure why I would show interest in dismantling my engine for something whose benefits I am unfamiliar with. Could you elaborate?

      I'm interested for sure. I'd be open to either new or my current, but I'd prefer new.

        How beneficial is it to have a bored out LIM? Can't see how it would offer decent gains without ported heads, but I could be wrong. Might be interested.

          am running a 3l port matched and i would have thought the biggest restriction i have at the moment will be the svt upper manifold

            All information about the manifold are in the links. Provided.

            They actually have an option to buy a new manifold that is bored out from them for $350, or send yours in and they will do it for $199. It just all depends on how many people I can get to do one or the other. They require a minimum of 5 to group buy.

            It is highly recommended to have your UIM bored to match the bore size of theirs, but it's like boring a port matched 3l And if you've portmatched a 3l then you can do the UIM the same way. Along with heads.

            For maximum gain you can do a if you have a 65mm throttle body as well.

            But they bore the primary and secondaries ports, and laser cut new stainless butterflies for the secondaries.

              I read the description and still have no idea why I might want to do this.

                I have a extra lim. I would like to use my core. I am in. Eventually going forced induction so now is a good time to open up a bit.

                  The reason for doing it is to allow more air into the motor.

                    I guessed that much, but not all members here are automotive experts.

                    Let me be more pointed: I have a basically stock 2.5. What kind of HP gains might I see - or is this only for built/forced induction motors?

                      Most people will state to get the maximum efficiency out of it, your going to want to have the UIM bored, the heads bored, and get a optimized or mustang throttle body. As well as a tune. As forth HP I'm not sure on a number but their will be a deference because this allows for more air in the motor at anytime and allows for a larger amount of air then stock when the secondaries open. It is a good mod if you are thinking of doing forced induction, but me I just want it for better air flow in my 3l. Plus I'm hoping to only do 1 or 2 more things before I go and get it tuned. once that happened a then it will definitely be worth the upgrade.

                              See if they will drop the price even more for 10+ I too am showing a polite interest. I also think we should do a Max Extrude UIM GB so we can actually reap gains from this mod.
