Our Intake manifold, though a very nicely built piece, will require some finish prep before the assembly process can begin. Notice the extra material that was unintentionally included when the casting process occurred (see yellow arrow). We were surprised to see this imperfection sneak past Edelbrock's quality control team. Luckily we plan to have all these internal surfaces polished and re-ported to further increase flow numbers. More on that in the next build segment.
