K-Tuned Centerfeed Intake Manifold
There isn’t a single oversight on this beautiful piece of performance art!
Applications: K20 and K24 engines in EG, DC2, EK (w/ EG subframe only) plus other K-Series Chassis (may require modification to fit)
Throttle body Fitment: K-Tuned 80mm & 90mm TB; or any TB with a 86-93 Ford 5.0L Mustang flange.
NOTE: The stock water pump needs to be modified and a K-Tuned AC/PS Eliminator Pulley Kit must be used.
For the beautiful K-Tuned Intake Manifold project, they partnered up with a long time friend and owner of Magnus Motorsports to design a performance intake manifold to properly fit multiple K-powered cars. Mind you, K-Tuned has worked with Magnus previously when they helped out with the custom intake manifold on their awesome turbo K20 RX7 (we covered this back in 2012). Magnus is well known in the aftermarket industry for their high quality intake manifolds and have been both designing and welding up their own products for several years now. They knew the Magnus design worked, but wanted to collaborate and find an overall manifold layout that addressed the fitment concerns on several different Honda/Acura chassis. Clearance to the rad support and the hood were areas that needed attention, so they lowered the plenum and shortened the runners a little bit, while still keeping a clean entry angle into the head port. The result was exactly what K-Tuned was looking for: a big plenum, short runner, performance intake manifold that fits numerous vehicles. This specific intake manifold design is being offered exclusively by K-Tuned and makes significant top end power gains over the factory intake manifold on both naturally aspirated and forced induction applications. Note that the stock water passage needs to be modified and a K-Tuned AC/PS Eliminator Pulley setup must be used. K24 heads will need to use our K24 Intake Manifold Adapter.
The K-Tuned Center Feed Intake Manifold features a very large 5.2L sheet metal plenum shaped in the signature tapered Magnus format. If you look closely at the head flange and plenum base flange, you’ll find two custom 6061 billet aluminum pieces that are precision machined using a CNC 3D profiling process. This special CNC process is what ultimately helped make this manifold design possible, allowing them to make the necessary multi-axis CNC cuts. The throttle body bolt pattern matches up to the 86-93 Ford Mustang 5.0L specs, which means the K-Tuned 90mm throttle bodies will bolt up seamlessly. The custom billet plenum base is a work of art, with four precision machined internal V-stacks that are designed to increase runner entry air speed. There are also one 3/8 NPT and two 1/8 NPT vacuum ports that are neatly tucked away on the plenum base, and positioned between each runner. The runners themselves, measure 5.75″ long with a large diameter of 1.875″, and are capable of supplying even heavily modified K-Series engines with plenty of air. The manifold flange at the cylinder head is available for K20 and K24 heads and is another 6061 billet piece, that maintains proper port entry and injector angles. Included with this manifold is a brushed aluminum K-Tuned Fuel Rail, which is held in place on a rail mount that is designed to keep the stock phenolic fuel rail spacers in place and accept both stock or aftermarket K-Series fuel injectors. As usual, all hardware is included – specifically the bolts for mounting the manifold to the cylinder head and the 4 bolts for our throttle body. Last, but not least, the cherry on the cake was placing an aluminum K-Tuned badge on the front of the plenum to add a nice finishing touch.
