    Dont ya think the runners sould be lower in the plenum ??

    Seems with the runner so high in the sides you would POOL Gasoline in the bottom of the manifold.

    What are you gonna make them out of ? Aluminum ? Steel ?

    You gonna form the ends of the round runner tubes to rectangle like the ports in the heads ?

    What are you gonna do about water outlets for the radiator ?

    6~71 or 4~71 ? Tall and/or Short deck DeSoto ?

    How much you reckon you will charge for said manifold ?

    I think it would be safe to say that there would be a lot of interest for this. I am into Desoto hemis and have a lot of people on the hemi sites asking for info about getting Desoto blower intakes. Not many were made (Weiand) and they did not offer water outlets other than a flat spot over the water ports that could be drilled and tapped for heater hose size fittings that could be joined together then sent up to the upper part of the radiator. The Desoto in my opinion has ended up the "redheaded stepchild" of the early hemis. It would be great to see this manifold produced to allow the Desotos their rightful place alongside the Chryslers and the Dodges.

    That plenum needs to be more shallow or the runners neeed to intersect it at a lower angle.

    I have one of the Weiand WDS671 intakes and there is no way I see to tap into it for water.
