V-Process Aluminum Decreases Machining for Mustang Manifold from 150 to 90 Minutes

By using V-Process aluminum casting on the air intake manifold of the new Stage 3 Mustang, Roush Performance Products reduced machining time for the part from 150 to 90 minutes. The recently released Stage 3 Mustang, a high-performance version of Ford's Mustang GT, includes a custom air intake manifold. When Roush tried traditional aluminum casting for the manifold, they found that the parts lacked dimensional stability, increasing machining time and adding to the cost. Manifolds produced by TPI Arcade, Inc., Arcade , New York, using V-Process technology are so accurate that one machining setup works for all parts, reducing machining time by almost half and ultimately reducing the cost of the part. In addition, the smooth finish of the V-Process produces an attractive surface. "The parts produced by TPI Arcade Inc. are so consistent that the machinists just set them up and let them run," says Mark Yagelo, design engineer at Roush Performance Products.
