Ft. Lauderdale, FL: Wilson Manifolds has worked closely with leading engine builders and racers for over 25 years and still the aim of their objectives is not always easy to comprehend, but here in the following passage is how Keith Wilson describes their task: “The velocity in the intake ports of a race engine is so fast at high rpm the air-fuel mixture must be slowed once it travels through the choke area (the smallest cross-sectional region) in order to make it turn and enter the combustion chamber. But because air is so much lighter than fuel the air tends to turn as the fuel goes straight. Our job is to persuade the fuel to turn into the chamber, recover the wasted power through equal distribution and delay premature detonation.”
Cornett Racing Engines was honored recently as the COMP Cams Top Engine Builder of the Year. The recognition occurred during the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series championship awards banquet in Indianapolis. It was the fourth successive year that Jack and his staff received the prestigious award. Cornett says of Wilson Manifolds, “Their craftsmanship is second to none but equally important, I like their practical approach.”
Earlier this year Wilson Manifolds celebrated with a couple of NHRA Pro Stock achievements when KB Racing’s Greg Anderson won the Winternationals at Pomona, CA and his team mate Jason Line followed with a victory in Arizona.
In Pomona, Anderson raced to his 71st career victory and fifth Winternationals triumph. Powered by his Summit Racing Equipment Pontiac he achieved an ET of 6.549secs at 210.87mph to hold off Jeg Coughlin Jr.’s JEGS.com/Mopar Dodge Avenger, which trailed with a 6.586 at 209.62.
Defending Pro Stock champion Line held off team mate Greg Anderson to claim his first win of the season. Line drove his Summit Racing Equipment Pontiac GXP to a 6.558 at 211.69 past Anderson to secure his 28th win and first at Firebird Int’l Raceway.
