This week has been a pretty eventful one at the Duke Motorsports garage. Last Saturday, we did some carbon fiber work on the new intake manifold, which turned out great. We applied 2 layers of carbon fiber, and will be adding some reinforcement ribbing in between layers to ensure that the manifold will not flex under the vacuum generated by the motor.

The end result turned out really well, and I think this may end up turning out to be the best looking intake manifold we've ever made!

|After: Much, much better|
We're looking into putting the Duke Motorsports logo on the garage, which would look really awesome and help solidify our presence on the engineering quad.
