question for Keith Wilson

Post by quickd100 » Sun Aug 08, 2004 8:02 am

I've looked at some of your manifolds and they are works of art. I took a stab at building a sheetmetal intake for my Hemi, (single 4 dominator tunnel ram). So far I haven't finished the motor to try it yet.
My question is; Is there a set in concrete formula you use for determining plenum volume when you construct a manifold? What factors do you use to deterine it's size?
Oh, I now know why you charge what you do for one. There was more hours of thought and fabrication involved in mine than I care to count. Dave

I would be interested in hearing about his work on the FAST LSX manifold. Did he just fine tune it or design it from scratch? What input did "Managed-Programs" have and who was the driving force in the project?

Could you please talk a bit about surface finish, and your thoughts on runner divider shape/size in an intake manifold.... specifically cast aluminum single 4 intake manifolds. Thanks....
