Re: LSx - Weber Intake Manifold

A friend of mine put it into some software application he had to provide the length based on what I thought I'd do with the motor. But optimum length was not my main consideration in that this will not be used "competitively", and instead simply an exercise of "what if", and in creating the aesthitics of the McLaren. Simply put, it will better resemble the McLaren with the stacks on rather than off.

Re: LSx - Weber Intake Manifold

More updates today. I had previously fabricated a throttle actuator for my Weber set-up, so I took the "wheel" and mounted it onto a newly fabricated "tower" that will raise the wheel up to a level that can operate the ITB throttle shafts. The hollow tower can also be used as a vacuum chamber for metering purposes by tying all the individual vacuum ports into the tube (chamber).

The thumbnail below shows the tower being mounted onto the LS1 cam/lifter valley cover, and then the second shows the assembly placed back onto the motor between the ITB banks.
