Breathing is just as crucial for your vehicle as it is for you. Without proper intake, your vehicle’s engine performance will suffer. Various engine components manage the air and fuel heading into the engine, but the most important part of an internal combustion engine is the intake manifold. 

What is an intake manifold?
Intake manifold is a series of tubes that it atop the engine that delivers either air or an air/fuel mixture to the cylinders. The design of this component varies from one application to another, but they all perform the same basic function and all have single input and multiple outputs. In carbureted engines, the intake manifold connects the carburetor to the intake ports while in the fuel-injected engines, the intake manifold connects the throttle body to the intake ports. Apart from delivering the air or fuel to the cylinder, the intake manifolds also carries out the function of fuel supply, fuel anti-evaporation system control, and engine operation point control.

The intake manifold is cast from either aluminum or iron and consists of thermoplastic material with high thermal and mechanical resistance. It is hooked up to the engine with duly sized conduits.

How does an Intake Manifold Work?
Intake Manifolds evenly distribute wither air or air/fuel mixture from the carburetor or throttle body to the cylinders. This is done through careful engineering of both design and orientation of the manifold. If an intake manifold has many sudden changes in orientation or contour, the flow of the air gets blocked which would result in poor operation. With this in mind, Underground Dynamics intake manifolds are designed to be more efficient that the OEM components. 

The intake manifold is a core component of your car’s respiratory system, and with our single plane or dual plane manifold, single or double carburetor intake manifold, tunnel ram, and hi-rise intake manifold you can match your engine setup.
