Default RE: do they make intake manifolds for out car?

I heard from good source that a reputable company has an intake manifold in R&D. I don't want to mention any names, because I don't have any facts yet.

Yeah Im not so sure I would want something so important to be tig welded though.....Dont like the idea of tig welding stuff on my engine.

Otherwise, it looks amazing.. aside from the wierd looking shape.

i would say it was made for someone using a s/c or turbo since the runners are relatively short but check out the inside. hogans make such awesome stuff! prostock technology rules!

The stock maniflod seems to be good up to at least 700hp. I haven't seen any of the big racers replace theirs yet so I don't think it's needed for the street IMO.

That doesn't make any sense. TIG welding gives you so much more control of the arc. MIG welded aluminum isn't the best either. So the only logical choice is TIG for aluminum.

The intake does have some good looking welds.


Just because the stock intake is "good for 700hp" S/C or T/C doesn't mean it is perfect. Especially in N/A form.

Much more control = Much more room for error. Thats JMO.
