TracTuff RBB/RBC Swirl Pot - V5
A spin off of the V4 swirl pot that came of of necessity. The V5 is essentially the same as the V4 but instead of the swirl pot sitting in front and slightly right of the billet flange, it makes a hard right turn from the use of a short notched 90°, placing the swirl pot over the transmission a bit more. This allowed for more throttle cable/ bracket clearance on an RBC/ RRC intake manifold equipped engine.
V4 and V5 are the most sidewinder turbo friendly versions available without going to a remote mount setup but due to the variations in the design of "sidewinder" manifolds from 100's of different companies and further complications that come from the various turbo sizes/ dimensions, I cannot advise what does and does not work... I can only work with you to collect dimensions and create a product that works with your combo. If you do not follow up with me after your purchase, I will assume you want a duplicate of this listing.
This swirl pot starts with a beautifully machined 6061-T6 flange that incorporates the largest port possible within the OEM gaskets footprint and a 1/2" NPT heater port. You can choose to have any number of accessory bung options added to the tank in any open space. The outlet itself can be configured for standard hose (1.25" OD) or -16 male flare.
NOTE: Made to Order - Contact for ETA - If you are interested in a specific design that varies from this, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have questions related to the configuration or options... PLEASE visit the WHATS WHAT or FAQ page. The cap bung has a 1/16" NPT port for connection to an overflow and uses early model Honda radiator caps; such as an 88'-91' Civic/ CRX or 90'-93' Integra. If you are using AN lines, I recommend designing the upper radiator hose so that there is droop/ give... so the engines movement and does not push/ pull on the radiator and fatigue any parts.
DISCLAIMER: This configuration can have clearance issues with throttle cable pulley, cable pulley bracket, and/ or fuel rail plumbing when used with traditional side exit intake manifolds. Due to intake manifold variations, throttle body spacer thicknesses, and throttle body shapes... I cannot account for ALL combo's unless you send in your parts or we work together on dimensions.
The hardware kit includes four M8 stainless steel socket head bolts, a 90° heater hose fitting, a plug in the event you don't plan on connecting a heater hose, and Genuine Honda gasket. The swirl pot is welded so that it sits level when bolted to an engine leaned back 15° (OEM position) for the traditional option and leaned forward 8° (intake side) for the gangster lean engine mount option.
