SDPC SD3816 - TPI Vortec Lower Intake Baseplate

Tuned Port Injected (TPI) engines with Vortec heads is a reality thanks to the Performance Team at SDPC. Our engine dynometer tests have shown a 40HP gain with the new SDPC Vortec TPI base plate and stock Vortec heads versus the stock L98 engine. The Vortec TPI base manifold was designed from the original GM TPI intake to be a universal fit for Chevrolet/Pontiac cars (1985-92) that were equipped with factory Tuned Port Fuel-Injection and the cylinder heads have been replaced with the new style raised-port improved flowing Vortec heads from Chevrolet Performance (#12558060).

In house testing has proved a gain of 40 horsepower over a stock
L98 engine. The larger runners of the TPI Vortec Baseplate combined
with the excellent flow characteristics of the GM Vortec heads
produced 300 hp on an otherwise stock L98 engine. Other
modifications such as camshafts, rocker arms and injectors produced
as much as 375hp with the stock computer and throttle body. Testing
was performed with a MASS Air Flow sensor system.

Our TPI Vortec Baseplate is a universal design that we patterned
after the original GM TPI Baseplate. Because it is a universal
design, you should first test fit all components that bolt directly
to the intake and make any required modification prior to final
installation. Some modifications may be required of the external
components related to the intake and EGR systems.
