Justin,

We had a difficult time with the intake manifolds busting at the welds. We would split the manifolds and have to weld after every session. This cost me several race wins

The solution was a "962" style tank that was hammered (by a metal working genius) over a mold in thick aluminum. I cannot recall the gauge, but they were fairly heavy. They were made in halves and were simply welded together. This eliminated additional welded seams, and worked for several years.

I should have some more pics somewhere.

BTW, my new water motor puts down 695rwhp and 705rwtq at 1 bar with a 75mm throttle body. At 1.5 we saw 919rwhp (right before the head gasket blew, ha ha.)

Andy
