When the founders of LOD Speedworks looked at the intake aftermarket, they discovered two basic problems. Some intake manifolds were affordable, but were rather generic in fitment and weren’t of the greatest quality. Others fit well and were quality-made pieces, but they were not affordable enough for the average ethusiast. We set out to deliver the best of both worlds—an intake manifold that was affordable and fit properly. LOD Speedworks was born.
How It Started
After graduating in 2014 from Houston’s SAM Tech, a technical training ground for students of the high performance racing industry; Raf (above left), a former U.S. Navy Sailor with a background in aviation, began designing a new breed of intake, specifically for his 5th generation Camaro SS, known as “The Yankee,” named by Street Outlaws TV star Doc Love.
After overwhelming feedback from enthusiasts, it was decided to bring the intake to the market for the general public. Bridging the gap between the track and the street, the team at LOD Speedworks continues to blend their racing success with their engineering and machining skills to develop great products that take cars’ performance to the next level.
