Fabricator challenged at adapting round tube to square port.  Is there a header flange available here?  I thought I recall someone had fabricated one for use in building a tube header.

Solution to last my last post found.  Austin Hoke may be able to fab CNC flange with integral transition.

Make a mandrel in the shape of the square port out of steel (cut, file, sand, etc.).    Heat the end of the stainless round tube to about 1,000F.  Put some high temp grease on the mandrel and pound the mandrel into the round tube to shape it.

No offence intended, but why should we believe you're any more likely to make this happen than the countless others who have started down this path and never delivered? 

 

Let's see a prototype and some realistic pricing first...

I'm hoping he meant Sch10, and not Sch40!

If you look at the picture below I milled ~0.125" into the flange to allow the round exhaust tube to mate properly.  This was using a round port exhaust P90 head, but you can take the same approach with a D-port head such as N42.  From there you can just port to smooth the transition as best as possible.  Some feel the step is beneficial to reduce effects of reversion.  It will be difficult to shape thick walled tubing to fit the port without the necessary tooling.

They didn't make that header, The owner of the Z had it made....somewhere....and they had to clearance portions of it since it didn't fit originally. The did however make the intake.

Was just going to post the same.

Could also cnc a flange with the square to round transition built into it.

Not to thread jack, but wasn't the car in that Touge Factory article the one from the original Senza Pari intake manifold buy? Curious as to why its getting another intake fabricated.

Just found another fabricator who quoted $2500 off the bat in single lots using sked 10 304SS including water cut head flange.  Any chance of sourcing head flange here?  Wud save $200.
