I understand what your saying
My comments regarding tapered runners was me being facetious

We are trying out some already proven designs we're using on a couple of lsx based motors
On the Hemi
I already see several places I want changed as we progress

This particular version is going on a high rpm big cid n/a build making in the area of 900
Rwhp in a dedicated drag car that should by grace of god be running eights this season

I have a second version coming together for a four 392 cid blown
Application which should allow us to turn up the boost numbers without splitting the
Stock intake

But. Our intention is to do this with u.s. Made product
By U.S. military combat vet owned business and to keep the product in a very competitive price range
I don't feel it will do everything great. But it should be able to
Be trailered towards a specific build with ease

Now Brian smith has a much more thought out product I feel and I think his is modular
Had I though of that I would have gone that route

Our current runners are extrusions. So there are no seams ect that will need clean up
So it will help in our pricing to the end user. Or at least that's the hope

Already looks better than any of the crap I've cut up and welded back together.
so looking forward to some of the end designs.

Is their any interference issues with a cable operated throttle body?
On the second manifold that you plan to fabricate for boost applications will you have some weld bungs and what is the location/s of the bungs. I know you are still working on the first intake, but just food for thought when you start on it. I am interested in the boosted manifold.
Keep up the good work.

Weld bungs for??
And I would assume at this point it will clear the cable
I have a fast xfi throttle body here I can test that with though

Weld bungs for vacuum lines and boost reference signals. If I had to drill and tap for fittings the aluminum sheet metal would be too thin to have sufficient thread engagement for fittings.
Yes please test for throttle cable.
Thanks

Of course
Any bung can be added
It will be set up to operate with a map sensor bung vacuum bungs/ports ect

Anything can be added obviously

And yes. I can't wait for testing. I want to see results

When are you expecting to test it?

How "hot" is the initial test vehicle?

What other intake(s) will it be compared against?

That looks like exactly where the top ended up. There are some confusing design aspects like the runner entry clearance and the big drop of the plenum floor that don't look right to me. I still hope it works because of all the effort the OP put into it.

Are you only going to assemble front entrance intakes? Im interested in trying a modified top entrance piece for my Super Stocker.
