I hate adapters! So I made my own  downdraft manifold...it has bigger size intake runners!

 Re: Weber DGV Intake
Did you make it from scratch or weld other parts together to make it? Sorry I dont' know the names - is the Weber DGV the stock carb or an aftermarket one? have you tried it out yet? Let me/us know how it works ou.t

DGV is a Weber carburetor (aka 32/36).

Leo, this looks very nicely done.

reference: performance intake manifold for stock carb

 Re: Weber DGV Intake
I'm anxious to try it out also!! My friend and I built it out of 2 manifolds. My TIG welding skills are not up to par..as my friends who welds stainless steel for a living!
I do nice beads with my MIG and my Acetylene/ oxygen welder!...Just need more practice with a TIG!!!
I'm thinking of building/ fabricating a fuel injected manifold for the A series engine using parts off a 280ZX and off a 200SX model! Let see what happens...just need to source a stock manifold or make new flanges...

This is a good piece , no more EGR passage, no more lost mist,no more turbulence,obstructions.I was checking out my Weber carb book, and a manifold could be made, using the 38 DGAS syncroneous carb, one barrel for 2 cylinders,like a downdraft version of the sidedraft, or, what about trying a dual DGEV 32,36?. What, if any would be an advantage of using twin 32/36 as opposed to dual DCOE in a light A series( not heavily mod)? perhaps less fuel consumption(due to the progresive against syncroneous qualities).
I've only seen a twin DGEV set up...in the net, never seen one actually running.

Yea, this is the set up that is been haunting my brains for the past several years, any feedback on the performance with the dual...DGAS 38 (more power than my envissioned twin 32/36, dual 38's probably demand some substantial performance improvements to expliot the 38's)...I am willing to give it a try. I will get a couple of stock manifolds from the yard, cut them, close of the open section, and try it. Would I need to try a (sorry, do not know the right word)...connector bridge between both independent manifolds? (planning to cut 2 stock manifolds, and mount a 32/36 on each one, like Dgonz says, one will be located forward from the other, no problem with that ,I think.)...like some DCOE manifold do have?
