    2JZGE intake manifold pics ( 56K no way!!)

    I just thought I would post up some pics of what ive been up to lately. I just finished this intake manifold for my friend Mike Carwins ( twincharge on the forums)supra. His car is curently in the newest issue of Dsport magazine sporting some IC piping I made for him. Anyway I unfortunalely wasnt done with the manifold in time for the photo shoot but here are some pics of it.
    Its sporting a billet 90 mm TB and billet velocity stacks inside. I will be fabbing up the IC piping later this week and then hopefully we can get some dyno results after that. the car made 610 rwhp with the stock intake mani just before we took it apart so well see what it does now.

    Really nice, what did you do with the power steering? Also you planning to sell some of these intake?

    the ps resevoir was relocated next to the brake master cylinder. You can see it in the pic in the upper right hand corner. As for making more intakes, I do this as a hobby in my spare time but if someone wanted one I could probably make another. Just PM me if your intrested.

    I dont see the velocity stacks? Did you blend them into the runners? Looks like a copy of the VWR manifold.

    the stacks are the radiused inlets. typically you see stacks as a raised horn, but this is a pretty reasonable approximation. Welding looks good, you could spend some time with a die grinder and papers and smooth out the outside of the runners for a more finished look, other than that it looks really good. I think this style manifold looks so much better compared to the stock ge setup.

    very nice piece. You can check out my approach to a GE manifold over at clubna-t.

    This is not a E-BAY manifold, it was hand built. The throttle body is another story.

    I was thinking about doing the exact same thing, but the cost of buying the manifold and making my own is significantly different.

    Sure as hell looks like a VW/Stryder clone

    Probably easier just to hack up a thai manifold than build from scratch, unless you have all the mats on hand already.

    Yes it would be EASIER to hack a Thai manifold, but it is CHEAPER to make one your own.

    The material for making a manifold is not that much, it is the labor that what makes the manifold to be 500$ from Thailand or even 1100$+ from respected vendors.

    Eh, that's under the assumption labor = free.

    considering I hand built the entire thing and have never seen a virtual works manifold in person Id say I didnt copy anybody. I built it on the car with nothing to go by so it was entirely my own design. there are only so many ways it will look when building these things. I spent more in material to make this manifold than those cheap ebay pieces of shit cost. The billet air horns are from RMR. Some of you guys are rediculous.

    It looks no more like an ebay mani than the manifold you sell.

    Im not sure. I made this one for a friend and didnt really intend on producing these. It really is alot of work to build one. If you or someone else really wanted one PM me and we can work something out. Like I said before its just a hobby for me that i do in my spare time so I can only do stuff on a limited basis.

    The manifold that Josh sells is just a D Plenum bolted to the stock lower runners, not much in common with an eBay piece of crap. Josh's in house welder is fantastic, so don't go knocking his stuff when it works.

    Your's does look a lot like a VW or even a eBay Thailand knock off, whether or not you've seen one goes without saying. It is a good piece of work, but I hate to tell you that velocity stacks on the Supra haven't been shown to improve drivability at all. In fact, a certain vendor on this forum switched from the Veilside to the VW because the velocity stacks disturbed the airflow more than they helped. Just a little FYI for you.

    You've got pretty good skills, I'll give you that. Nice attempt....

    I've never heard of an instance where velocity stacks did not improve flow. In a job I had a few years back, I spent weeks at a flow bench with velocity stacks.... they work, though they are most efficient when raised off the floor a bit.

    First off, go back and read again. I never said his manifold looked like an ebay manifold or knocked the quality of his product. As for the velocity stack comment once again you should read again/look at pictures again. The manifold I made does not have velocity stacks protruding and disturbing airflow. They are flush if you didnt notice. The way VWR and others make theirs is to hand port the runners to make somewhat of a velocity stack. I just happened to use billet airhorns instead. just look at the RMR manifold.

    Very true about the velocity stacks.

    One of the members did a flow test on a VW and on a Veilside manifold and the stacks did disrupts the air flow and creates less CFM than one without it in that test, which is on the Veilside mani. Read your heart out.

    http://supraforums.com/forum/showthread.php?t=166026

    And from RMR, those stacks are $40, so that is 240$ off from material list already. And you can get schedule 40 aluminum tubing fairly cheap depending on size and length.

    And yes, assuming labor is free

    But nonetheless, the manifold looks great!

    Did you made those air horns yourself, or is it from RMR?
