This Is The Most Interesting Intake Manifold Video You’ll Ever See

For starters, the video is about the Hoonitruck, which for those living under a rock is a highly modified 1977 Ford F-150 Ken Block drove in Gymkhana 10. It features a tuned twin-turbo 3.5-litre V6 EcoBoost engine putting out 900hp, but by utilizing the same engine as the Ford GT the team ran into a problem. They would need a one-of-a-kind intake manifold to get air from the turbo chargers to the cylinders. Enter Ford’s 3D printing capabilities.

Using a state of the art 3D printer in Germany the machine worked over 5 days creating the largest made and implemented 3D printed metal car part in history.

For an added bonus checkout around the :58 mark where it sounds like the voice over actor has a literal hiccup saying a German university name which I’ve listened to a dozen names and can’t make out, but laugh every time.
