About

 Order a complete plug and play high performance manifold, or get acces to our designs and make your own manifold!

The Intake manifolds (or do-it-yourself blueprints) we create are basically made out of 3 segments:

1. the lifter valley plate, which closes up the engines top side, keeping the oil inside the engine(as well as the oil's heat!) and away from the intake manifold.

2. The thermal insulating runners, these are made out of polycarbonate instead of aluminium, therefore forming a thermal barrier for the intake plenum. Because the runners are made of a material with high thermal insulating properties(unlike aluminium) they will not transport temperature from cylinder heads, oil sump, or coolant channels to the intake.  keeping the intake air as cool as possible, and significantelly improving mileage, emmissions and performance.

3. The aluminium plenum, because it is being seperated from the block and coolant channels(which are normally integrated in the manifold) the plenum will also be much cooler than it would be in a conventional aluminium intake manifold. This seperation of the intake plenum provides even cooler intake air temperatures, further improving emissions, gas mileage and performance.

Optional: Some manifolds have an incorporated coolant channel, with other manifolds (like the mopar magnum) it is possible to cut this section out of the original manifold and re-use it. but some engines will need a seperately fabricated "coolant-bridge"between both heads, these wil likely be cast from aluminium.

Current developments:

Currently a vehicle is being fitted with the first complete kit, in the next weeks the car will make several dyno tests and will be compared to the stock manifold. 

Flowbench testing for several runner and plenum designs is scheduled for the next coming weeks.

When dyno and flowbench test with the first designs are complete, we will begin experimenting with different runner length's and plenum sizes and shapes.(probably January)

Risks and challenges

Due to the straight style of the runners and plenum, it will be best suited for EFI applications, Carburated engines require a more flowing runner without sharp turns, preventing the fuel particles from "not making the corner" A design for carburated engines is on the to-do list, as is a plenum style for roots compressors.
