Engineered for Reliability:  It would have been easier and less expensive to simply make a thinner flange to lighten the manifold, but the flange bending strength goes up as the square of the thickness, so twice as thick is four times as strong. This is why we kept the flange thick, but cut deep pockets into it - to give the best strength to weight combination. Xtra-Light package includes: valley plate with secondary ribs removed Details: The main bolting flange has deeply milled pockets in it, and has been mill contoured all around the outside. The top been contoured around the bores, as well as the ramtube adapters to remove significant material. The valley plate has the secondary ribs removed, the sides and remaining rib thinned out, and the top surface milled to .100” thick. Also available without bosses on the manifold for maximum weight savings. Optional: XTRA-LIGHT barrel valve, hard-anodized aluminum, cuts the weight of the barrel valve in half... saves 1/4 pound Steve Kinser, 19-time World of Outlaw Champion For Small Block Chevrolet, Mopar and Ford Others available on Special Order 3.5 POUNDS LIGHTER * than our standard small block V8 MAGNESIUM manifold !!! * weight savings depends on port profile and throttle size © 2017
