ok i ordered a aem short ram for a d16 y8 but my motor is a d17 y7. i ordered it for the y8 becuz i was supposed to be getting a vtec head and it was gonna have the y8 manifold on it. now im not gettn the vtec head or the y8 manifold so now i have a short ram for nothin. is there any way that i could make the short ram fit onto the y7 manifold like what kind of modifacations will i have to do and how much work will it be?? thanks!

The y8 and y7 manifold are diff and if you have the y7 and you bought a y8 short ram humm my guess would be to find someone with another short ram and cut it to the lenght it needs to be for your setup....

ya i gota figure somtn out cuz the y8 throttle body goes straight out and the y7 throttle body goes straight up. so im hopn that when i take off the whole stock intake and box that there will be enough room for the short ram to go up some and leave the hood space to be down! im prolly gonna have to do some cuttn tho!
