Originally, Manny built me a return to have used on my car with a MPIII. Then, that gets traded off for an AR. Enter Ken Wagner. It starts with one trip to NE to make the plenum fit with the AR. More research and a few dollars more and the raised manifold has been added. The entire intake up is custom from Ken. Dont like it? I hope not so no one trys to steal it:p.

Dig the outlets and the inlets are the same size.

He said there may be SOME modification that will need a touch of work...I THINK I can handle the gap on this one.

Okay...I found them. You can not see inside as well as I thought you could, but take my word for it, the work looks great.

New hotness...

You can see the raise in this one.

One of the roof supports that directs the air to the rear most runner.

Here is a good one of a roof support at the front of the manifold.

Once again, top notch Ken. I have some work to do to get the car the way I want it with this engine so it will be sitting to the side under covers for a while. But I will keep the good stuff coming as I get it.
