Intake mani project

Post by Jmoore124 » Tue Nov 05, 2013 6:28 am

Picture of the intake manifold i just built. Probably not the best flowing design, but it sure will make vacuum issues easier to diagnose. Basically just need to leak test and I will be ceramic coating a textured white.

can you shut your hood with that intake? it looks purty

i built one that looks alot like the same runner length you used and with the throttlebody on there it wouldnt clear the hood

I think the angle of the picture is kind of deceiving on runner length. I cut the runners right behind the plenum flange. Hood closes with spare room for piping. I went to leak test it last night.. and well.. I still have some work to do. I am also going to have to find a way to seal the TB shaft (thinking lathing a spot for O rings on the shaft) to get it to seal better. My main leak was coming from the shaft area of the ebay TB.

Im Just a hobby welder really. I have helped a guy build scratch built cages on jeeps, but other than that I learn by making mistakes. biggest problem I am having right now is the ebay TB is leaking out the shaft pretty bad, and I don't have a cup/tungsten combination I can get between the runners effectively. I am pretty sure I bridge welded them when I originally welded the runners and am having some issues with leaking.

Honestly I am about ready to just buy a used ebay or excessive mani and slap it on so I can get this damn thing running again. I have a ridiculous amount of work in this manifold.
