    Default Miersch Intake

    Im putting a Miersch low pro intake in my TX20. Looks like an aerican turbine suction housing bolt pattern. Problem is I have a Berkely pump, Will it work?

    Yes it will fit. All of them are the same bolt pattern. Sometimes things dont fit perfect but its the same bolt pattern. A little work may be involved to get a perfect fit, mock it up to see for sure.

    Yes it fits. No reason to trim the corners unless the aesthetics bothers you. In case you ever want to change to a different low profile intake you'll want to keep the corners. Lot of guys use that style intake, my preference would be a MPD low profile intake. I switched from that intake to a MPD low profile intake with considerable gains with similar hp. The transition to the roof of the suction housing is much more favorable on the MPD versus the meirsch. With that said, many people have been successful with both intakes. The intakes will also take different loaders and will not be interchangeable. A std 4 degree berk intake will use the same loader as the MPD low profile yet neither will fit the miersch intake. Again some guys have modified the loader pad to be similar to the berk and mpd intake to also accept the berk and mpd loader with success. Also the MPD intakes and the miersch intakes have different shoe bolt patterns. In this area most people have the MPD/Berk bolt pattern for shoes so it makes it easy to interchange and try hardware setups between racers or boats. I've seen several different bolt pattern variations with the miersch intakes. Again lots of people use both and have been succesful with both, just trying share some information with you now before you set one intake vs. another. Most guys do a bottom job after the intake has been set so switching intakes later can be rather time and money consuming to switch down the road.

    i found a good deal on the miersch, and Mr. Ervin Capps will be adding a drop keel to my boat. He is comfortable with the Miersch intake and for the price I cant pass it up. I'm just going for a quick lake boat with maybe some racing in the future. So while my boat is getting restored I want to do all the major work at one time with having to go back and make changes

    Glad to see Ervin helping you. He's a great guy. If you need direct contact with Roy Miersch, you can reach him at 760-427-5838. Both he and Ervin can give you the correct info about the intake.

    Also, Roy has added another version of the intake if you are interested. All of his intakes come with a common bolt pattern and have been that way for some time now. Chris at B1 Racing has worked with both versions.

    Hope this helps,

    Now I'm just trying to figure outbid the guy that's trying to figure out if the intake I found is a real miersch. I heard there was a fake floating around.

    There is a meirsch intake and Aggressor, they are similar. Also some that were cast without markings. Fake or not I don't know that it would make much difference.

    There are several intakes out there.

    The standard Berkeley 4 degree intake ( flat keel and rounded keel )

    The Bayjet intake

    The Berkeley R intake 7 degree

    The MPD intake 5 degree

    The meirsch intake 5 degree

    The Aggressor intake 5 degree

    The American turbine 4 degree intake

    I think Dan Nelson is making a billet 5 degree intake similar to that of the Aggressor and meirsch

    Maybe Larry can chime in about the meirsch intake without PPP markings. I don't know the specifics about them. But they were similar to the Aggressor and meirsch, or even where the ones without casting marks came from.

    Default Talking about intakes

    This one is in my SST Tunnel. Is this one of those intakes? Would like to get some info if possible.
