Prevent The Boom: Installing A Holley Lo-Ram Intake Burst Panel

Boost is an awesome thing, it can turn any engine into an animal, and it also has the ability to turn an intake manifold into a pile of garbage if things go wrong. Intake manifolds can be protected from too much boost thanks to a burst panel, and Holley has made that an option on its LS Lo-Ram intakes. In this video from Holley, you learn burst panel basics and how to install one on your Lo-Ram intake.

Holley developed its Lo-Ram intake line to work with forced induction applications that are making power the most power in the 7,000-8,000 RPM range. These intakes use a modular design that allows a user to install different intake plenum tops based on their needs. The Lo-Ram intakes are perfect for cars that have limited space under the hood. The intakes are available with provisions for dual injectors and can be purchased with high-volume fuel rails.

The Lo-Ram intake plenum top that’s equipped with burst panel provisions uses a standard SFI-approved 6-1/8” x 3-1/8” sized panel that’s available from Holley and many other manufacturers. The burst panel is designed to be the failure point when too much boost is introduced into the intake, rather than the intake failing itself. You can even purchase a burst panel duct to go with your Lo-Ram intake to direct the force of a burst panel releasing away from your engine.

Holley’s Jeremy Stoermer goes over the details of how to install a burst panel in this video. As you can see, there’s more that goes into installing one of these than just bolting it onto the intake. Thanfully, Stoermer explains the entire process to make it easier for you.
