    Default Express Bio's new manifold w/ nitrous.. pics

    Plumbed up a fogger for Garrett (express bio) and Gary (tunabiteme) and thought it looked bad ass on their new Hogan manifold. Check it out. Pics are taken with Iphone in HD mode, thought they were decent quality. So much easier to shoot with your phone then upload directly to photobucket from the phone rather dealing with stupid SD cards or whatever. Anyways..

    Pretty sure these guys will be running the number this year!







    Pic of the boat. Runs the 10.0 class. That Heitman guy better watch out, lots of guys gunnin' for him next year.

    Default plumbing

    on these sheet metal intakes, is there room to have the bungs welded on the inside of the intake runners ( not actually inside, but opposite of where they are now ), and run all the plumbing and crap in the valley? where it would be hidden.

    i know it would be nearly impossible to drill & tap the holes on a cast intake. but on a fab'd deal they could be welded before the runners are welded to the top and bottom.

    maybe even at a 45* in the inside corners, pushing the lines to the middle and back, or forward.

    Yeah, you can do that. On a shallow valve angle head/spreadport it sure makes it easier to do the manifold plumbing though, it would be tight on this one for Garret, its for a conventional head.

    I did my plumbing on the inside on my manifold using the soft line and I love it except for jet changes, thats a huge pain in the ass! I'll let you figure out how I drilled and tapped the holes. The soft line is awesome stuff, Ive had zero issues with it although its limited to the amount of HP you can run.

    I used to work right next door to Hogans- I'm sure Tim would build you whatever you
    want, but it would cost you! their blower manifolds are plain sick!

    that answers another ?. i like the flex line, its small dia. and looks easy to work with / hide. thats the shit, hiding it on the inside.

    Bitchen looking manifold! Just wondering, are the carbs rotated like a torquer manifold? Does this make much of a diff on a T ram?

    I'm thinking you drilled from the outside through to the inside, tapped the holes and then welded and smoothed the outside of the runners.

    I have bungs on the outside for an annular nozzle and your right when I put those in I drilled the holes for the inside stuff at that time then welded in the outside bungs after I drilled the holes.

    They turn the carbs to get them over the runners better, better distribution. Im sure it helps, cant say how much though, I dont know.

    Sleek, it is some serious stuff but they want to be able to run the number no matter where they go, shouldnt be a problem now.
