When we began talking about huffing a flathead Studebaker engine, one of the first things we knew we would need was a hi-performance intake manifold. It would need to be up and away from the exhaust manifold, it would need a decent-sized plenum, and it would need to promote the smooth flow of the air/fuel mixture. This is an early design drawn up by Greg. The idea for intake venturi came from a discussion Greg had with Steve Hamel, who is working on his own Bonneville Project (a Vincent motorcycle). Note how much the original design looks like the manifold Digger Dave made for us!
