Slant six Info

Aussiespeed has a big line up when it comes to the slant six Chrysler engine. The long runner Hurricane intake manifold was one of the first slant 6 manifolds that Aussiespeed produced and the range has grown from that.

With long runner and short runner intakes, tubular exhaust headers, aluminum valve covers and air cleaners the list of slant six products has extended to gaskets, exhaust tabs and other dress up and accessories that fit the mighty leaning tower of power. Aussiespeed are always looking at new products to increase the performance of your engine. Unlike many companies we do not only look at products that will sell thousands on release but make a product for the selected market who want performance & quality above all else. We dont have huge advertising budgets & rely on customer satisfaction to spread the word of our extensive range of slant 6 performance products. Australian High Performance Industries or “Aussiespeed” as our brand is know is still run by its founder and not accountants who just look at profits above quality or performance gains.

Aussiespeed produce one of the largest range of performance intake manifolds for Slant 6 engines. Aussiespeeds range of tubular exhaust headers are made using the latest cnc bending machines and assembled in multi point welding fixtures to give repeatability and consistency. Aussiespeed Slant 6 headers are fully welded, ground then stress relieved in a purpose designed machine so the pipes will keep there shape after they have been heat cycled on your engine.

As you can see by the picture the reverse engineering of these pipes was a huge job, First of we had to make a fixture to support the pipes in there original form & shape.

IMG_0889.JPG

After getting the header plates made for the jig to allow us to get the exact port location you can see the repairs to the original primary pipes & flanges were but welded & have cracked & been welded may times before.

IMG_0893.JPG

Once the front pipe fixture was built we then went about building the fixture for the rear bunch of pipes. To get repetition & accuracy you need to make sure that each section of pipe is held with 100% accuracy. There has been around 80 to 100 hours put into getting the front section & then the rear section reversed engineered.Each individual pipe has had to have a program written as to where the pipe is bent & formed plus the pipe length had to also be calculated.

IMG_0889.JPG

When it came to any changes being made the fixture had to be changed first, then if the pipe was longer or shorter the cutting list was changed then the bending program. A tool designed to make the collector was also made to be able to form the collector to fit tight over the pipes.

100_4551.JPG

keeping the pipes running in the right direction & having the pipes the correct length to get them to work across a wide rpm range was also a challenge. We wanted to get the Early A body Aussiespeed long tube headers to fit the Aussiespeed AS0023, AS0024, AS0225 Aussiespeed Blower manifold, The AS0199 2 & 4 barrel manifold & the latest addition the AS0299 short runner dual bolt pattern intake along with the factory stock cast intake, the long runner hyper pack & the other brands of performance after market brand manifolds that are available.

We needed to keep room around the starter motor area when fitting the AussieSpeed headers, no use building headers that cook the windings in your starter motor.

IMG_1770.JPG

The underside of the headers to the runners of the AussieSpeed AS0299 short runner manifold is still good.If you look close you will see the header to manifold tabs we also now make that are cut from steel & have a closer radius shoulder to accommodate the wide intake runner of the Aussiespeed Manifolds.

THE DESIGN & RESEARCH OF MAKING THE AUSSIESPEED HURRICANE

 We get requests from customers regarding horsepower & torque increases when fitting the Aussiespeed hurricane manifold & headers. dyno figures & flow figures are something that can give you an idea of where you are going performance wise. Aussiespeed got some feedback & data from a customer in Canada regarding the 225 they are running in there street strip Valiant Dodge Swinger.

The car ran 9.2 with another brand after market manifold . The AS0024 AussieSpeed hurricane intake manifold and a 500 carter 4 barrel carb were fitted & the times dropped to 9.0. Both the set ups were ran using the same set of headers. the large bore AussieSpeed AS0198 headers were fitted & the car dropped again to 8.80. these tests were done over the 1/8th mile

The SL6 Performance slant six manifold was a joint effort between Pentastar parts & restorations & AussieSpeed. The manifold is being used on slant six Chryslers worldwide.
 
“Why NOT build a Slant Six”? The Chrysler 225 Slant Six engine is as they say the leaning tower of power, There have been some big steps forward with intake designs when it comes to building a performance slant 6. For Slant six owners considering the AussieSpeed PP&R 2 or 4 barrel manifold we have taken the guess work out of what if i change this or cut that or grind here or add something some where else. As the manifold is supplied out of the box our own flow testing done back to back with 2 different manifolds tested on our own flow bench showed that the manifold flows within 3cfm on all 6 runners. with the top of the carburettor pad cut out to 1 open hole it upset the cylinder balance by up to 14cfm. We then added a shape in the plenum floor that we had found improved another model manifold from another type of engine & it all went backwards. Cylinder flow increased in some cylinders decreased in others & changed from our 3 cfm difference to up to 18 cfm. As we have not been able to run our slant 6 dyno mule engine yet to see what extra gains can be found by raising the carburettor higher with the use of a carb spacer.
Tests have been done on the Aussiespeed/PP&R Hurricane 2 barrel manifold also for the slant six Chrysler engine.

AS0040 AussieSpeed Slant 6 Chrysler,Valiant Mopar 225 Tube Hedders, Extractors, Headers
AussieSpeed Headers are made using mandrel bent primary & secondary pipes bent on a computer controlled mandrel bender that uses vertebrae type benders for the most accurate formed pipes. Our extractors are jig welded with the pipes fitted & welded over the collector cone so no protruding pipe inside the collector which causes turbulence . Our method gives greater exhaust flow & helps to make more horsepower, Aussiespeed Extractors are shot blasted to not only clean them before they are painted but shot peening removes sharp edges & stress relives the headers.
100_5142.JPG
Aussiespeed Slant 6 Chrysler shorty headers have been designed to work with the Aussiespeed Hurricane Performance intake manifold, They can be used with other factory & aftermarket brands of intake manifolds including triple su & webers. Our hedders are designed to hopefully fit 1960s on Chrysler Valiant LHD & we already know they fit RHD Australian bodied Slant six powered cars & trucks. The extractors pictured are our prototypes, When we confirm they fit on left hand drive Chrysler,Mopar & Valiant bodied cars ,trucks & pickups the production short style headers will be supplied with flanges after the collectors so your local exhaust shop can complete your custom exhaust system.

Pictured is a Sl6 Aussie Speed V3 Hurricane and the Aussiespeed proto type AS0040 tube headers, The semi tuned length exhaust headers were designed to work with the equal length Hurricane intake manifold as a shorty style header for easy fitment but still have a long set of primary pipes to produce horse power over a wide rev range, Our Tube headers were not designed as all out race pipes & due to having to fit many different body styles a true even length full tuned primary pipe was not possible.They are a true street strip  universal header with button style flange pads that can be ground to suit most intake manifold flanges
 
AS0225 AussieSpeed Slant 6 Chrysler Valiant Supercharger manifold
Aussiespeed are working on a complete super charger kit for the Slant 6 updates will be available as work progresses. The manifold will be available as a std line for those wanting to do there own blower conversion. The benefit of the Yella Terra Terra Charger is a 4 barrel squarebore carb can be mounted on top of the blower. An Eaton M90 Ford mustang Tbird super charger is similar in size to the terra charger but will not accept a carburettor.

Here are a few measurements on the AussieSpeed slant six range of performance manifolds. Length of manifold from port flange to outside of blower pad, 425mm overall length the average length of the manifold runners are 250mm, port centre-line measurements are 35mm high 28mm wide.The cylinder head used for proto typing & research & development had a port centerline of 36mm high, 30mm wide. There is enough material to allow for cylinder head match porting. the pre heat plenum deicer will also be available shortly. these are available by them selves & can be welded to most 4 barrel alloy manifolds.
