In spite of its modern origin, the system design looks like it was a factory installed option that complements the classic MG image. Intake manifold provides equal airflow, pressure and fuel mixture to each cylinder. By optimizing the distribution in the manifold for each cylinder, you can run more boost pressure without the chance of harmful detonation. System produces 5-6 psi boost at sea level and bolted to a stock engine you can expect a minimum 50% increase in rear wheel horsepower.
