JENVEY LAUNCHES NEW, LIGHTWEIGHT MODULAR DOWNDRAFT ITB KIT FOR CHEVROLET LS3 V8
Two new kits for legendary small-block V8 debut at National Kit Car Show, Stoneleigh, with in-car Gardner Douglas T70 demonstration
Bridgnorth, UK, May 1st 2015: Leading developer and producer of fuel injection throttle body and induction systems, Jenvey Dynamics Ltd., launches its new downdraft throttle body kits for the popular Chevrolet LS3 V8 engine at the National Kit Car Show, Stoneleigh on May 3rd and 4th. The fast-road and full race set-ups, which provide increased power and throttle response, are lighter in weight than currently available systems. The modular design also helps provide a solution for engine bays where space is restricted, such as high specification sports cars like the Gardner Douglas Mk3 and Mk4. An in-car installation of the Jenvey CKCT04 Chevrolet LS3 downdraft SFD kit can be seen on the Gardner Douglas stand, Hall 1 – stand 50.
“Demand in the US and within Europe has driven the introduction of the downdraft SFD kit for the Chevrolet LS3; the engine is a popular choice for sports car builders such as Gardner Douglas who want a high-quality downdraft alternative to the already-available crossover option from Jenvey,” says Mike Jenvey, managing director at Jenvey Dynamics Ltd. “We have a proud history of innovation, and the modular design and light weight of these kits is perfect for highly configurable, bespoke vehicle builds where space may be of a premium or customers require a choice of engine bay aesthetics. Expectations for the standard kit are for around 50bhp gains on an internally stock engine, with further benefits of improved driveability, and an easier to set up linkage with progressive throttle control, which provides ease of use in a high power, lightweight chassis.”
All kits undergo CAE stress analysis of manifolds to verify OE-quality of components, all of which are CAD developed, prototyped, tested and produced in-house in the UK. Over 25 years of experience enables Jenvey Dynamics to reduce weight by optimising design and production processes, and by using aircraft-grade aluminium to ensure durability for road or race applications. The base Chevrolet LS3 ITB downdraft kit includes eight SFD 52mm parallel bore throttle bodies, a pair of lightweight manifolds with fuel rails to suit the standard injectors, short billet air horns and an easy to fit idle air system (optional). The full race kit includes larger SFD 58mm taper throttle bodies and 60mm long carbon air horns.
The new CKCT04 Chevrolet LS3 downdraft SFD and SFD taper kits add to Jenvey’s extensive range of induction components, including kits for engines by Cosworth, Porsche and BMW. The first batches are expected to be available from June, and prices will be from £2220.
