I was watching Horsepower TV and they were showing some dragster cars that had sheetmetal intake manifolds. I was wondering, could a intake manifold for the L36 be built out of sheetmetal with individual runners and a large air gap below the main body? I would think that would help some HP and maybe get some TQ. Maybe the manifold could be made to accept a 97+ L67 TB (I can't recall the best L67 TB) The manifold could fix the UIM failure problem. I realize there would be emission issues (where to put all the emission ****). But the basic idea, is it possible?
I was thinking something like this:
Have a main body and have six runners branching from it
