Just go weld a tennis ball can to the factory runners and you have a new manifold.

So this is a dual-plenum plenum?

Looks that way with a slot down the whole length. I guess in theory it would be like an air curtain flowing downwards more evenly than blowing past #1

Never seen that before... Thanks for sharing your find. Looks like it would take up quite a bit of space, but should distribute air more evenly across all cylinders.

That thing looks massive... But I like it! I really would like to change the stock manifold on my car eventually.

That would be cool to have an opinion with real-world experience on that design instead of guessing how it works.

thats my inlet.. its the second one we build for the miata using that layout..
the design originates from grB rally etc.. very nice flow, very even distrubution of air.. and quite compact..


here's a pic of the setup with the old manifold.. same idea, just not as nice finish, and a smaller stock throttlebody instead of the 70mm ..

hf - Do you happen to have any more pics of your setup? I'm going to be converting to a bottom mount manifold similar to yours and trying to lay it all out in my head. I'm also running a T3/T4 with a Tial. A few pics would certainly help me. You can pm me if you would rather just send them to an email addy.

Looking damn good btw!

Thanks

That is one NICE Miata.

If you care to stick around here the expertise put into your build would be appreciated.
