OZMO Carbon Fiber Intake Manifold
 
I have been working with Jaime, the owner of OZMO Engineering on a one-off custom intake manifold for my twin turbo LS3 setup. The intake had to be redesigned to fit the LS3, as well as functional for an FI setup.

Some of you may have seen Blu808 post up about their experience with the NA intake manifold. You'll notice that this one has extremely short runners specifically designed for high horsepower FI cars. Instead of running 2 TBs, the two plenums converge into a single TB.

Here are a couple pictures of the progress since December

As of right now 'm not sure how much of an increase in power to expect. They are truely a work of art! I've never seen anything close to this before.

I talked to Jaime this morning and he still needs to bond the BOVs to the plenums. It will be delivered next Monday.

I wish it was only that much lol

The main reason for creating this thread was to do a write up and impression of the manifold.

Beautiful! Love that it only has one TB. Can't wait to see the finish compartment.

Thanks, I'm also working on getting a set of carbon fiber valve covers as well.

That's going to look sick! Those are same valve covers I have. They are katech. I like them best from all the CF valve covers available. I wish that intake worked in a NA application. I like it better than the one with two TBs.

What's wrong with having two TBs? That gets you twice as much air right? :bellyroll:

Did you get the coil relocation kit too?

I like the cleaner look and it also will be simpler to implement.

You could follow everything I've done on the link below. A lot of stuff that would compliment what your doing. Hit me up if you have any questions.

Oh my lord. That may be the sexiest engine part I've ever seen. Exquisite design materials and craftsmanship.
If I see that installed on a twin turbo setup I may have an involuntary orgasm.

I would suggest that you start stocking up on tissue paper now.:D

Oh good gosh! Just delicious!

I don't use the word beautiful much, but that is absolutely beautiful.

Those are a work of art but I'm scratching my head at them. Why did they extend the runners into the plenum? It seems that more plenum is better, especially with FI, but they've used up a lot of valuable space with them. I like how they radius'd the individual runners. :thumbsup:

willhe64 05-12-2012 10:53 AM

That setup would not work very well on a naturally aspirated engine. Will work well on forced induction.

pyr0b0y 08-14-2012 01:25 PM

Just wanted to let everyone know that I started the install yesterday with my friend. We got everything mocked up on the engine. We had to order a few fittings for the fuel lines, and extend the fuel rail brackets, but it should be finished on Wednesday. I took quite a few pictures, but left the camera at a friends house! I'll be posting them up as soon as possible.

Since we pulled off the intake manifold, we will also be cleaning up the engine bay quite a bit as well too, to give it a cleaner look.

Stay tuned for pictures!

Sweet! Pry0b0y, you know how I feel about your intake, best looking intake, PERIOD! Almost makes me want to do a TT, so I can run your same intake. By the way, you should check out what I'm doing for fuel rails, drop by my thread.
