Double "A" intake manifolds = DREAMING

back to earth and straight side-drafts please

think about the hood clearance, throttle synronization,

different front springs for the added weight, a support

system for the hanging masses, and it just suchs.

Makes a nicce display though

You never know it might eve run better than you think, the torque curve is going to be considerably wider than side drafts due to runner length alone. Peak power is probably a little lacking but around town driveablity might be surprisingly good.

Hood clearance would not be a problem because there is no added height.

You can syncronize side drafts cant you?

Added weight? Its like 10 lbs more, were not talking about a hundred lb increase in the engine bay.

and agree they look impressive. think about the availability of intake manifolds. doesn't everybody have at least one kicking around? I know I have 2...

and what about a nice 32/36? these should be plentiful and fairly cheap, as compared to side draughts and manifolds. sure, maybe linkage is an issue, and you might have clearance issues with the hood, I don't know the answers there.

syncronization should be easy, same trick as side draughts, just turn your unisyn upright.

I don't know, they could get the same performace as dual weber 40 dcoes but at a fraction of the cost.

What I like about them the most is that they represent the spirit of innovation and improvement. somebody thinks it up, and gives it a try. we're so deep in a world of "off the shelf" that it is refreshing to see something different attempted, even if it doesn't work right the first time.

Anyway, that is my opinion. feel free to disagree, but just be respectful doing it and we'll have a nice reasonable discussion.

I doubt that most cars out really need more than a single 38/38 can provide. One of the advantages of sidedrafts is that they are a straight shot- no bends. The manifold is interesting but I'd try the single sidedraft set up first. It seems to offer the simplicity of a single carb with easy access to the jets etc.

This type of modification used to be more common that it is now when most tinkerers were left to their own devices rather than order from Edlebrock's catalog. But various manifolding can still be found on and off the net.

I recall seeing an M10 setup running a small 4 barrel holley that used a homemade brass manifold that appeared to be nothing more than plumbing downpipes. This was at Sebring and the car ran quite well or at least it sounded as though it did.

It may be that JAM engineering or other aftermarket outfitters that offered an "L" or "J" shaped manifold to accommodate two or three downdraft Carbs on the M10 engine. Rather than use the stock twin manifolds, the L or J tubes are "apparently" simpler or as simple as the stock setup. I am not sure of the advantages of this "glorified drain pipe" setup, but nothing ventured, nothing gained!http://www.jameng.com/products/images/c-502.jpg I remember this because the manifolds were offered to me for my 02. I had no need for them on my Tii. I think someone else grabbed them and ended up installing a hood scoop.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
