Default Re: Mercedes V8 Inlet Manifolds

There's very few man made devices that I've found to be perfect, or without any need for improvement. ICE inlets are no different. The Benz ones are severely compromised by the CIS/E systems, not because the concept is flawed, but because of the physical size of the systems.

It appears to me that development has ceased in favor of forced induction, which is like using a sledge hammer to drive a nail. My design still uses the fundamental principles but is quite different to the early styles and current concepts. It is adaptable to ANY engine hence the plan to apply for patent/s.

The main hurdles I face are the basic lack of space between the heads and an attempt to keep it all under the bonnet.
