I honestly never realized that the Corvair used a cast-in-place log style intake manifold built into the head itself:





Uneven fuel distribution, anyone?

Even the VW Beetle had a better manifold design than that. Note the smooth transitions and equal-length runners:





Seeing things like that makes me wonder how America hasn't been invaded and conquered by Burkina Faso yet.

Love this song.

Go to 2:30 if you want to skip the slow intro.



If you don't know Eisley, you may want to learn them too. Incredible voice.

Yeah, it is. I don't want to turn this in to a political argument but I think we as a society should take care of those people, there is no legitimate reason not to.

Yep, pretty fail design.
Although that is a much more recent Beetle motor, the early ones had similar (crappy) heads.



You should feel sorry for me. I used to have to try to improve those heads in order to make my pile of a race car faster
Later when I got out of it, I found out that everybody was cheating by opening up the intake manifold tube. They did so by forcing a series of ball bearings through them with hydraulic pressure.
So all my head work was in vain because I was using the stock manifold like a good little racer.

Yeah, but even in the pre-1971 single port head design, the path was relatively smooth and fundamentally equal between the two cylinders- I liken it to a modern cylinder head, where there is a single inlet port and a single injector servicing two inlet valves per cylinder.

The design of the intake manifold on that Corvair is just plain offensive. Several hard 90 degree bends, and the path is extremely unequal comparing the three cylinders in each bank to one another.

Huh. The progenitor of today's Extrude Hone process?
