Cast iron manifold

A cast iron manifold, specifically an exhaust manifold, is a component in an engine's exhaust system. It is designed to collect exhaust gases from the engine's cylinders and direct them into the exhaust system for emission. Cast iron is commonly used for exhaust manifolds due to its durability and heat resistance, which are necessary properties for withstanding the high temperatures and harsh conditions of exhaust gases. The design of a cast iron exhaust manifold is crucial for efficient exhaust gas flow, which can impact engine performance and emissions.
