So I’m working on my top end for my suburban, she’s got 225k so she needs help. My old k5 I had ny throttle body rebuilt by RV Morse Machine, I had a TB spacer, injector pod spacer, eBay injectors, and the hypertech salad bowl, and she was a mean little monster. Now RV Morse is out of business and the salad bowl is no longer made so I’m trying to make my own, does anyone have the specs for a DIY deal? I’m gonna buy a 5 piece set of bowls off Amazon but wanna make sure the correct diameter bowl is there and if anyone has a recommendation for best way to cut it? I do not have a steady hand lol. Also what I should seal the bowl with? I’ll just buy a cheap abs nipple from autozone for the PCV hookup.

Any info is much appreciated, thank you!

A little part of me dies every time I think about that rig just sitting in the Lab. #AwesomeK5smatter

So is the salad bowl really a serious thing? Has an actual mpg gain been seen or movement in the pants been felt as a result? I went ahead and ordered one last night for my on own testing. But now debating wether to cut my factory air cleaner to find out.

i can testify to a bit of "seat of the pants" performance gains... nothing crazy, but it was noticeable.... opening up the/a factory bottom to fit is required...
