Maybe you are right
I'm waiting for the weather to warm up. Fiberglass can't harden in about 0-5degrees Celsius.
My last shape was like this:

Thats a good start.

Have you researched plenum design? Look into the trumpet design for inside the plenum

A haven't done any research just watched a few projects. Bigger shape won't have enough place as I use the lower half of the stock intake manifold.

So i pretty much designed a 3rd plenum..











This design is much better. Not only that i can now access my brake fluid but i noticed a better pull and a deeper engine noise.

Thats it for now. Just waiting for some dyno time to fine tune it.

For yours you should have the smaller end of the plenum 1/3 less from the end where the air is coming in from. There is an article i read out there about plenum design and flow.

Google image intake plenum and you'll see what im talking about. There are many with itbs as well. One thing is for sure you should have trumpets inside the plenum for better air flow.
