[DML] Carbureted PRV Intake Manifolds Coming Soon

NOTICE: This post is NOT intended to ignite a carburetion versus
forced injection controversy. It is intended only to share information
of an activity I am pursuing, using my own resources, to be made
available to any owner who may contact me at his or her volition.
Please do not respond with meritorious arguments -- the archives are
already plenty full of those, many of which carry my byline.

FYI: I am beginning design discussions with a local machinist to
manufacture and blueprint, for reproduction as necessary, a prototype
PRV carbureted intake manifold. It should be completed and available
for inspection at DCS.

I anticipate a welded up version of my cast manifold. This will differ
from the carburetor intended prototype currently under Houston's Stage
III as follows:
- Lower profile
- Two venturi orifices (2 barrel carburetor)
- Smaller plenum
- Provision for a throttle cable bracket, or possibly the bracket itself

For cost savings I am commissioning a steel prototype, but the
machinist is capable of reproducing it in aluminum, with
commensurately higher material cost.

Please note:
- I do not intend or anticipate mass usage of this manifold. That is
why it is being blueprinted for occasional reproduction
- I do not intend or anticipate changing forced injection enthusiasts
minds. This will provide a fuel delivery option for a small group of
owners for whom injection is mind changing

It is reasonable to wonder why I am doing this: More than a dozen
owners have contacted me since I converted, seeking to at least
explore the option of doing the same. In fact I had two inquiries at
DMA last weekend. Until now, intake manifolds have been the limiting
factor. With this engineering out of the way, owners who voluntarily
elect to at least try carburetion will have the means to do so.
