AMMFAB pic thread

well aarons got a thread so i figured it would be ok if i did one. for starters my name is mike, im 27 and im a detroit diesel engine tech by day actually night now. anyways ive been into the go fast seen for about 10 years now and about 6 years ago i wanted to build an intake manifold for my gti. well luckily my work has a tig welder, so a few weeks of dicking around after work and i was able to lay beads on aluminum (which looked like bird shit but i thought they were damn good back then) so i went ahead and built an intake manifold. i then wanted to do more stuff to my car on my own like porting the head, so i took a stab at that too. well 6 years, lots of time, research and practice later ive gotten a bit better then back then and do this steadily on the side out of my garage now. i primarily deal with neons/srt's and ever so often dsms but im always up for doing new stuff. i havent done much steel so thats not my strong point i do tons of aluminum though. hover the next few days ill post up some stuff ive done in the past and stuff thats been more recent, the shitty thing is there isnt alot of variety because i primarily deal with the mentioned vehicles above. owell no biggie there, feel free to comment. mods if theres any issues pleas let me know.

got bored with my stock sounding tahoe and instead of buying an expensive air raid or k&n intake i took about 5 hours and made one with some 4" aluminum pipe i had laying around and the air box is actually a moroso batt box (i think it was moroso).......





heres a sohc neon intake manifold followed by a srt bottom center mount manifold i made a little over a year ago that went in a first gen neon.......

believe me sir ive got plenty of pics. heres some more stuff........

i do alot of "box manifolds" which are modified oem manifolds basically...........

this is for a 1st gen sohc neon........







hers one for a turbo 420a powered eclipse.........













heres one for a 2gn sohc doge neon.......





heres one for a dohc dodge neon.........







and last but not least i just finished this one sunday, a manifold for an srt powered first gen.........













ii put the tag in these pics cause the owner didnt want it welded on due it being a on a "clean" show car in which the manifold was gonna be mirror polished and so people would know its one of mine for future referance.

and the last post of the night will be this dohc neon head thats going on len ayalas (some of u may have heard of him) outlaw neon. hes looking to make 900-1000whp on his car and heres the head thats going on it......... i didnt get this head flow benched but when comparing it to some of my other heads numbers im guessing this head should conservatively flow ~ 320cfm on the intake side and 240cfm on the exhaust side @ .500"........

i dont have a flow bench unfortunately, i have ray at basko do all mine, so these flow results are not biased in any way. i drop off a head, they flow it, i pay, they give me my head and printout. i wish i had one, then i could do just the smallest stweaks and see what they do to flow........ and flow the intake manifolds too. i have not done any honda stuff yet......... mainly becasue theres so many people that do honda head work nationally ( portflow, rlz, head games, endyn, etc) that not many people will trust somebody theyve never heard of. actually i take that back i did a d15 or 16 head for my machinist a few weeks ago, it was nothing special, ill see if i can get it and gets some pics of it tomorrow when i go up there. anyways thats basically why. but then about a month ago i was up at tri tec with my machinist and was talking to henry joe and a few other people and they said there were no locals that do good head porting, so i thought hmmm, ok =) and no back to back dynos yet

heres a headlight intake and new boost piping i did for a 8 sec GN about a year ago while i was working at extreme motorsports (corvette shop).........






heres a cavalier i did dome work to that some of u may have seen before.

he first got ahold of me to build him a sheet metal intake so i did as u can see below.







then he wanted to spruce up his turbo system too so i went ahead and took care of that for him........

























and heres a comparison between the janky ass sheet metal intake he got from some other company that had to be modified and cleaned up before he could put it on vs the one i built him (i used RMR parts in case anybody is wondering)........


exterior shots, the one thing that really gets me is the vacuum ports on top of the plenum.......






in this pic the back of the plenum has been tapered by aarons guys at honey well to allow a little more flow through the rad hose, then what it was allowing. the top was restricting th e flow i think they tapered the bottom to make it symetrical.......



the boost/vaccum leak aaron was talking about above where the bolt hole went through the thin metal to allow the plenum leak.......


welds look good, but radiused entries into the runners would have been better......


bad flange matching, and i thought on there site it said something like "smooth transition from runner to flange"..........





and the one i built......

nice and clean on top...........









nice radiused velocity stacks in the floor...........



some nice shots of the welds.............




and a nice smooth transition from runner to fange..........

some of u may also have seen reggies nova out at speed workd during some of the grude racing or fastest street car events. i didi his new boost pipe, cross over pipe and exhaust, that 5" stainless exhaust is the hotness! i didnt do the headers and will not take credit for them. heres right after i was done (still hadnt redone the boost piping yet in these pics)........






heres after it was jet hotted along with the new boost pipe installed......







heres some shots of the boost pipe alone........











and heres at the track pics......
