Stock Charge Motion Modification

I've read a few threads elsewhere about people modifying their Stock Charge Motion plates by simply removing the butterflies and bearings, then using quik steel to seal the holes between ports ... also another individual did not seal the holes between the ports, he just sealed the rod exit using a freeze plug and combination of quik steel compound. Has anyone accomplished this modification successfully or care to explain their own procedure? Thinking about doing this over the weekend. I don't really care to spend $280 on something I can do as a project for the cost of some freeze plugs and quik steel compound... It would be nice if Steeda still offered the economy delete plates, those were essentially the same as stock with just the butterflies removed.

I wouldn't ever just start plugging holes in your intake like That, just doesn't sound safe

Not plugging holes in the intake. You're essentially making CMDPs just like the Steeda Economy plates.

Until something does go wrong and you shoot a freeze plug into your motor. Don't mess around with stuff like this. Either drop the cash or don't do it at all.

Oh doesn't look hard, but still if I did it I'd weld it

The plates are aluminum and the steel epoxy is whatever. May have a problem with expansion from heating a cooling at different rates, which could eventually allow one of those putty plugs to come out and toast the engine.

Might be a great cheap solution, but I wouldn't risk my engine to save a couple hundred bucks. Did you do your engine first or your buddies?

Anyone know where I can pick up the Economy Plates anymore? I don't understand why Steeda stopped manufacturing them and only have the much more expensive Billet plates now. From my understanding the billet plates have a larger opening than our stock intake ports - which in my limited knowledge would cause turbulence and tumbling of air. The billet plates also have ports for nitrous or meth injection, not my cup of tea. Just want to keep it simple.

I have em and they work great. If you're not building a 600hp race car, you can throw the turbulence idea out the window.
