02/09/07 – Final Manifold CAD Design
HOW DID YOU SPEND YOUR FRIDAY NIGHT?
Schedule 10 304 SS.
Weight = 30.74 LBS... 1
Too bad I'm not baller enough to afford 321 thin wall... At 80 dollars for 180*, that's $1040 in tubing alone!!!! Yikes.2
The green parts are constraints from the car itself. Here are the listings of the length of the runners:3
Runner 1: 20.790
Runner 2: 20.861
Runner 3: 20.794
Runner 4: 20.759
Runner 5: 20.801
Runner 6: 20.786
Standard deviation: .033 (1/32)4
Wastegate will probably be added after the fact...5
This is really fun to do. I would totally freelance design manifolds for the right price. I’d have to get good at TIG welding if I wanted to sell completed manifolds, though. Right now anything I try and TIG turns into a banana.Wastegate was simple.
(2) 321 Manifolds are crazy expensive. Even knowing how much I would ultimately spend on the car I STILL would probably not make a 321SS manifold
(3) I am pretty stoked about how close the lengths were…
(4) It’s funny that I calculated this.
