View Full Version : GTE intake.

Thought id share these pics with you of a one off end feed intake manifold i just finished working on for the kid bros gt4.
Throttle body positions not drilled yet cos i want to fit it to the car before i set its final position.
Paint finish is powdercoat chrome with a clearcoat over the top, all done by liddle ol me. :) Enjoy. :)

Did you radius the runner entry(s)? Looks like a good sized plenum, ~2.5L?

wow, looks great!

Wow it looks nice but I don't think it will flow like the the 3sge intake simply because the runners are straight and not slanted toward the the throttle body thus the air will bypass the runners instead of going into them which is kinda defeating the purpose of putting on a side feed. just my 2 cents

DUDE! your a god! nice let me know how it flows. Very nice work congrats... it could even pass for a stockie if a person didnt know any better =P

Lol thanks guys. :)
Runner entrys were all radiused when i removed the top half of intake.

Regarding the air distribution itsoktosmokev8s; Can understand entirely what you mean by the air possibly bypassing the closest runners, but i had a thought about that and goes a little like this, rightly or wrongly. :)

Ok, this is how i see it; under normal no boost driving conditions i think itd be fair to say that each runner takes a breath from the plenum as the intake valve below it opens due to the pressure drop created by the piston.
Therefore its the pressure drop controlling the airflow into each runner so each cylinder should ( imho) get its full share of air as long as the plenum has enough volume to supply each gulp of air.

A slightly different situation goes on with the runners when the plenums under boost pressure in that each runner is already pressurised due to the turbo, but at any one time theres only one set of intake valves open which means the pressure would drop momentarily as the air flowed into that cylinder, then stop and rise as the plenum pressure rebuilt due to the turbo pumping air in ready for the next cylinder.
Im not saying that distribution couldnt be a problem, but im not sold on the idea that it necessarily would be.:)

Thanks Bluedragon, someone else reckoned it looked stock too. :)

nice, we need to talk, lol.

Wow dude. That looks beautiful. Best looking self made manifold Ive ever seen.

You could seriously make some dough in the fabrication industry dude.

What kind of throttlebody are you going to be using on it?

12-24-2007, 07:31 PM
lol Thanks Luni. Gonna use a 60mm camry v6 tb on it.

Getting some more metalfabbing gear come the new year most likely. :)

Nicely done Sir!
