I can't believe this thread is dying... :(

Found this: Inlet Runner and Peak Torque Calculator
Should come in handy setting up runners (length & area)...

Just a general descriptive article with some calculations at the end of the article...

Not a problem at all... I'm just gathering information for myself and figured I would share with the community.

They look familiar, don't they .



These were designed by me and made by 'Reverend Greg' on a cnc lathe.

Here is what they look like inside the manifold I've been working on for my Protege.

And you guys Thought we were just a bunch of 10 yr. Olds on their daddys computer.But seriously I hope all of these builds work out for their respective fabricators.
Iam working on my entire Intake and exhaust tract as one unit at the same time.Not the most efficient way to get it done,but hopefully it will pay off when I stomp on the Long pedal.Thanx Everyone.

We should totally start an exhaust manifold fabrication thread... As stated, best of luck to everyone with their builds. I will post results of my build when I find time to build it as work has me TOTALLY bogged down right now. Plus most of my 'free-time' goes into parting out my Miata in prep for track duty.

reverend greg.. yeah, hope it works ok.. but im pretty sure it will. we have buildt several of these manifolds(same design) for high power (520whp etc) saab engines etc.. And my old manifold was almost the same design.

hf-mx5t: ftjandra and I were having a conversation last night,on how I can often be misunderstood.I think what I intended to say was:I'm very interested in The concept by which you have fabricated your IM and hope that its performance exceds your expectations.Introducing the boost charge in the manner you are is, upon first glance,going to insure even and smooth air flow into the runners.Sorry,I'am commonly misunderstood.
