Protect Your Engine with Victor Reinz Quality.

Victor Reinz intake manifolds meet or exceed OE manifold durability

For over twenty-five years, OE manufacturers have been installing plastic (high temperature nylon polymer) intake manifolds at the factory to save weight and improve fuel economy. Although generally successful, some of the highest production engines, especially in severe duty service, began to experience manifold warpage or other types of deterioration. Victor Reinz manifold designs meet or often exceed the OE manifold durability by adding features whose need was determined by years of vehicle operation in the field.

Innovative Design Built into Every Intake Manifold.

A perfect example is Victor Reinz MN1000 for 1995-2005 GM 3.8L V6 VIN K Engines. The plastic manifold exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) passage is lined with a stainless steel sleeve, in addition to steel EGR transfer tubes with reduced OD. You get two layers of steel isolation, and an air gap between them, so that hot EGR gases never come near the plastic manifold. That’s how Victor Reinz intake manifolds prevent EGR burn-through in the coolant passage—and help you avoid engine damage. Other features:

  • Increased wall thickness in the coolant passages
    • Eliminating weak areas and preventing coolant leaks
  • Increased bolt column size
    • Providing improved bolt torque retention
  • Increased runner insert surface area
    • Improving sealing of the mounting gasket
  • Lower manifold cooler plate gasket
    • Helping you avoid double work when needed

For added convenience, Victor Reinz MN1000 intake manifold kit include two O-rings, PCV valve, PCV spring and plastic cap, saving you time and ensuring a better installation.
