RRC Vs. Skunk2 Manifold

hey guys I am looking into upgrading my intake manifold and would like some suggestions ... before looking at the rrc or the skunk2 I had ITB's in mind but they are just too much work to maintain... so please help me decide between the RRC or the Skunk2 Manifold. thanks

I agree with the guys above from my personal experience it does pull.But the rrc is still an oem piece.The skunk2 was designed as an aftermarket piece.With that being said i got the skunk2 mani. just for my own conclusions.

RRC here also, but get the inlet ported to 70mm first so then you can get a bigger tb.
Mine is stock with a tsx tb which matches up perfect but now i wanna go bigger and have to do the job all over again.

do you have a K24 or a built K20 to even justify using a big manifold like that? who cares if its "aftermarket" most of the parts on my car are OEM and it performs quite well BTW.

Calm down I was just pointing out that aftermarket stuff is usually more aggressive.and yes it is a built k20.And thats why I'm trying it in the first place no attitude needed.So op the answer is kind of dependent on what your trying to achieve.

Don't take it personal but I didn't mind checking the s2 mani out just for my own knowledge.I understand the animosity towards s2 but they haven't gave me a raw deal to date.I already experienced the Rrc and I wanted to do a physical comparison instead of asking.

You are a liar!!!!!!! It performs really well

But I agree I am really happy with my RRC, but looking back I may have just went with a ported RBC, which I still might do now. The skunk2 is overkill for a medium build and I do not like that company at all.

I just went with it cause its black, my valve cover is black, throttle body and intake tube black, fuel rail black LoL! Maybe when I get a k24 block and better cams I will benefit from the Skunk2 combo? I mean, I'm still pushing out 220hp+ without cams.

Until then....its the frickin weekend! Too bad I have to wait to get my shifter cables in to enjoy it!
