Honda carries a name that's known for creating environment friendly automobiles. Accord and Civic are popularly notable for that. The engineers of the company basically give enough attention to the auto performance aspects that affect the emission quality. What then are the aspects that affect the emissions system of the vehicle? Directly affecting this system is the Honda exhaust manifold, for it is the last route of the exhaust before it's finally released. But before those exhaust gases reach the exhaust system or even before the substances needed in the combustion get into the engine, they first pass through another component that affects the end result. It's called as the intake manifold.
A Honda intake manifold that's installed in any Honda model is responsible of supplying fuel and or air to the cylinders by the use of runner ports. This auto part is a system of passages also known as the inlet manifold of the induction system. The air that enters the cylinders is then mixed with the fuel and is being set for the combustion process and ultimately for power generation that will run the machine. Any defect or leak on its passages would affect the amount of hydrogen and fuel content, which would consequently result to more toxic elements present in the waste materials. Such trouble could also lead to poor mileage and low engine performance.
In operation, the intake manifold charges the cylinders with equal amount of fuel so as strength and quality, for more efficient engine operation that stages smoothness and even behavior. And then the fuel should be distributed as even as possible. Fuel charge is very important in the operation, not only its amount but also on its kind. There are actually ideal types of fuel charges such as dry fuel vapor. Creating such kind of fuel charge however is possible only with the presence of high temperature, and most types of fuels prevent such reaction. Depositing some fuel on the walls of the cylinders and manifold vents is the solution. The result is reduction of condensed fuel to a minimum amount. This concept then became the basis of modern intake manifold designs.
Today there are various designs of Honda intake manifolds available in the market. They are significantly made for specific types of engines. The selection ranges from Honda tunnel rams, cross rams, open plenums, divided single planes, single plane with partial divider plate to Honda isolated runner intake manifolds.
