My intake manifold is going to the welders eventually. Especially now that it is cut up a bit.
It is basically a large D tube manifold. Looks to be about 1/4 inch thick.
While he has it should I just have him weld on a piece of aluminum bar stock with some holes drilled in it for some vacuum ports?
I had 4 ports I used in my last manifold.
1 x 1/4 for map reference
1 x 1/4 for wastegate
1 x 1/4 for blow off valve
1 x 3/8 for brake booster
Or should I just go with fittings like:
Cost would be about the same really. The latter would be easier to do since i just drill and tap and install a fitting. The block would require me to cut a slot and make the piece and drill and tap those for each individual barb. I think those flat profile distribution fittings could look pretty snazzy.
I'm not sure on this. Would love to hear your guys thoughts on one over the other or a third option if you have one.
