Formula SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) is a car racing competition whereby the competitors have to design and fabricate the vehicle. The racing car must have a powerful engine that generates the highest possible amount of power and torque within a specified range of speed. To meet this condition, the engine must have a good breathing system where it demands sufficient quality of air and fuel flow into the engine. This is where and why the effect of the air intake manifold is significant to the engine performance. Previous UTP FSAE car in 2006 experienced inefficient engine combustion due to inadequate air intake while the engine was running. The present research project is about the improvement of the air intake manifold for Formula SAE car UTP Team 2008. The I . objective of the project is to modifY the design of the air intake system ill order to provide " optimum volume of air flow and best volumetric efficiency into the engine. The major challenge in this project is to design it according to the SAE Rules and Regulations. Among others; the regulations specifY a limit of power capacity of the engine, while a single 20 mm circular restrictor must be placed in the intake system between the throttle body and the engine, and that all engine airflow must pass through the restrictor. The restriction will obviously reduce the engine's total performance. The methodology of this project is by applying the "Helmholtz Resonance Theory" to calculate appropriate length of the intake manifold and for the purpose of tuning of the manifold with the engine. This is done mathematically and the result is obtained by dynamometer test in order to prove the theory. This is followed by design of air intake manifold will be design by using Solid Works software and flow simulation using Fluent 6.1. IV
