Actually, a plastic intake manifold is a great idea... about a tenth of the weight, holds pressure fine... dissipates heat better than aluminum. Subaru has been doing it for years and I'm suprised more manufacturers haven't done it.

Now Nitrous+plastic intake may result in not so positive results.... especially when you have a cheap *** dry kit that seeps gas into your your intake at idle resulting in a mild explosion under the hood.

How much weight would it save compared to aluminum though.

Depends on the application brotha... I removed the one out of my Legacy GT and I think it prolly weighed around 4-5 pounds... we were amazed how light it was and how that was a great idea to use plastic as opposed to aluminum.

That's why GM needs $7 Billion, so they can warranty all the crap they build.
