Build your own intake manifold


Build your own intake manifold

Why-

Last year at Watkins Glen my car was fast but it really just fell on its face in 4th and 5th. The car was using a Cyclone Intake manifold with a waste gate actuator fabbed up to operate the secondaries. As much as I love it I think its holding me back. I normally take the car up to 8500 rpms and at those rpms the intake plenum is just too small. With a limited budget and the price of intakes going up I decided to build my own.

Background theory-

For the design I am following some basic manifold building rules. First the runners should be 9" from the plenum to the intake guide seat. The distance on a 4g63 head from the gasket surface to the valve seat is just over 4". We all know that the longer the runner the better a manifold performs at lower rpms. But there is another rule to follow. That is the plenum should be at least 2.5 times the volume of 4 runners (gasket to base of plenum). The tricky part is that you can move the whole power curve and peak horsepower numbers either up or down depending on plenum volume. Bigger the plenum the higher the peak horsepower.

I want to make good power all the way up to 8500 rpms but I want some grunt down low too. My best design so far uses a 6" runner with a plenum volume just under 3 liters. I am planning on building the manifold by machining a 1/2" plate to act as the plenum floor that would feature velocity stacks (radiused entries) built in. That means they would be milled into the stock rather than rolling the end of a tube. I found ready made velocity stacks but they are $40 each and that's just too much money for me. I am planning on a plenum length of 16-17" inches with it tapering from 4" to 2.5".

I got most of my design ideas from Google including this site.

http://206.124.12.138/intake/

The plan is a single plenum just under 3L in volume with 6" runners. That would give me about 10.1" from the beginning of the runner to the edge of the valve seat. From what I've seen I thought the 6" runners would be longer than what others have done and the .125 thick runners yield a 2" ID which is also smaller than what others have done. I think the slightly longer and smaller runners would help low end power when combined with a slightly lower than 2.5 times plenum volume. I think making more power up top is easy and I really don't think I can mess that up. Making power down low is another thing all together.

What I think is that intake charge velocity controls cylinder filling at lower rpms and that like the 2G and EVO head design, smaller is better. At what point (rpm) does this smaller runner become a bottle neck I don't know. I am betting the farm that combining 1G port size dimensions with a big plenum would give me the best of both worlds. Much in the same way it would if I were to merely cut the plenum off a stock manifold and just weld on a bigger plenum. From my research that has been done with success.


Tools-

Table saw with carbide metal cutting blade
Wood router with ½” round-over bit and dado bits
Drill press with bits
Metric taps


Materials-

http://www.onlinemetals.com/merchant.cfm?step=2&id=71

This is where I sourced the materials for the build. I had some ½’ aluminum fixture plate that I got from the scrape bin at work but that can be purchased online as well.

For the plenum I am using 4x4" OD 6063 T52 aluminum square tube with a .125" wall thickness. The runners are going to be made out of 2.25" OD 6061 T6 aluminum tube also with a .125" wall thickness. That would give me a 2" ID on the runners and 3.5" on the plenum. I chose the thicker .125" wall thickness to ensure maximum strength while giving the welder lots of meat to weld with. The cost between thinner stock was minimal.

Then I milled a lip on both sides of the 4" strip I just cut out. This will receive the box top after its cut.

Later I'll cut an angle so the plenum will have a taper to it. For now it’s just dry fitted to see how it fits.

Then I cut the 2 1/2" hole for the TB in another piece of 1/2" plate I had. I just randomly cut the hole so I could practice milling the velocity stacks.

The plan is to have a velocity stack on the back side of the TB flange as well. I cut the hole in a separate sheet so I would have a wide base for the router which is what I'm going to use to round over the edge forming the stack.

Here are the pictures of the TB radius exit. This was my trial run with the wood router on aluminum and I have since improved my technique.

Next up was cutting the velocity stacks for the runners. I am using a ball bearing guided bit for the router which needed more than 1/2" of depth to cut the full radius so I cut another hole out of the plate material and then clamped the two pieces together. That way I had a full 1" for the bearing to ride on.

The next operation was to mill the backside of the plenum floor to open up the 2" holes to 2 1/4" so the runners would slightly fit into the plate. This is going to help properly align them and allow for a very strong weld. It should also make smoothing the entry a snap during the welding and assembly. I did that with my hole saw and my drill press.

Here's the flange. The bottom is notched to provide some overlap with the base plate and it has a 5 degree slope on the top to match the taper in the plenum. The idea is to build the intake in a way that allows the welder to crank up the power and really get a good weld. I think that when combined with the extruded plenum box will make it super strong.

Here's a close up of the TB flange. It looks like the overlap is only 1/8" inch but both the base plate and the TB flange are from 1/2" plate stock which should allow for a strong weld.

I also had a bit of an accident while milling that plate on the table saw. It was getting to small to guide with the cross-cut guide so I free-handed most of the cuts. After I the last pass I held the piece just beyond the blade and I reached down and turned the saw off. As it spun down I took my hand off the piece and the vibration of the saw sucked it back into the blade. Man that makes a sick sound and the back plate went flying past my head. Good thing I've been wearing my full face shield.

Once I found the plate the only damage was this gash. Could have been worse.

As you can see in the close up photo's of the runner to intake flange shots there is a small gap between the port shape and my crushed tube. That can be easily filled with weld and then ported smooth on the inside after everything is done.

Counting the thickness of the top plate and flange the runners will be 6". Here is a couple of mock up shots.

Believe it or not but making the throttle cable bracket was a royal pain. Getting that angle right and then spacing the cable bracket just so the cable lines up and has enough adjustment and accounting for the taper in the plenum. Much sailor talk was needed....

For good measure I've stepped up to a 63mm NT TB with no FIAV or ISC. I figure the car stalls enough already that why not ditch em when I can. Any reduction in water lines is going to be a plus in my book. There's also a polyethylene intake gasket too. That's supposed to provide a heat barrier to keep the intake cooler.

The last step in the process is to have the flange milled. Even though I built a jig to hold the flange flat while it was welded some warping was unavoidable. For $30 my local machine shop milled it flat for me much in the same way you would mill an aluminum head.

Results-

Like any custom race part some fabrication work after the build is needed to install it. The upper IC pipe needed to be redone as well as the vacuum hoses. I drilled and tapped the end of the manifold to mount the transistor to and since I use COP there was no need to mount the coil. I was worried that the 6” runners and box design would interfere with the brake master but it cleared with no issues.

Performance wise I am very happy with the results. The car pulls strong from top to bottom and it will make power all the way to 8500rpms for me. I do not have the $$ to put this on a dyno so I have no real numbers to back my claims. I can tell you that last year I could hardly keep up with the GT3’s on the back strait at Watkins Glen and with this manifold I can match both the GT3 and GT2 all the way to the buss stop.

The best dyno I could come up with is a friend with DSM link. The test car was a 2G with a 2.4L stroked motor running a BT28 turbo. Needless to say this car is a purpose built autocross monster. He agreed to do his best scientifically wise but everyone should know these are not very scientific results. To start with he did some baseline tests with the stock 2G manifold. Then he installed my manifold and went out and collected more data. It should be noted that this is a 1G manifold on a car with a 2G head so a adaptor plate had to be made so the bigger 1G ports would seal on the smaller ports of the 2G head. It should also be noted that there was no way around the Ύ” lip at the base of the junction between the head and the manifold. Everyone can agree that for flow reasons this is not the best idea.

The results were very good. Drivability was not hurt and the car made more power throughout the entire rpm range. The car made 28hp and 35 lbs/ft more power switching to my manifold.

Lessoned learned-

This was cheap. The parts to build were less than $50 and the welding and milling were under $100 so the total cost was less than $150. The whole project took almost three months of fooling around before it was finished. If I had to I could knock the parts out in a day and have it milled and welded the next day. Also, the biggest time killer was the flange. A band saw would speed things up some but in honestly if I could have bought a CNC'd flange for $50 I would do it.

Its been on my car for the whole summer and personally I don't miss the cyclone one bit. I've had it off the car a few times to inspect it and so far so good with no cracks. Now go build you own.

Agreed, awesome job A huge difference is the much broader torque range.

Is that tuned after install?

There wasn't a lot of tuning done after the install. Remember from the first post that this is a 2G 2.4L autocross car with a BT28 turbo. I can tell you both runs were at ~20psi running knock free. Also keep in mind that this was a 1G manifold on a 2G head so there was a 3/4" lip between head and the intake flange. Although I like the results from the plots what I like even more was the response I got from the tester. He loved it so much he ordered one from JMF using my specs.

If you've used a router, table saw, and a drill press before this project won't be much of a challenge. I didn't draw up plans for each part I just started with overall volume I wanted for the plenum and then built the plenum base plate based on the length I calculated with the spreadsheet. Once the base plate was done everything else just fell into place.

I should also add that you need some other basic skills like drilling, taping, grinding, crushing, and general measuring/layout. I have a background in hardwood floors and cabinetry that helped out a lot.
