Turtles and Super Turtles Manifold Inserts






“Turtles” are cast aluminum manifold inserts designed by Jean Dittmer and manufactured by BRODIX®. These inserts fit in the bottom of an intake manifold to direct the flow of air and fuel mixture to increase horsepower, torque, and driveability.

Installation Instructions-Very Important

Due to manufacturing variations in the manifold and “turtle” insert, verify close fit of insert to manifold floor. Turtle should sit flat on floor of manifold. However, slight trimming of manifold and/or insert may be required. Manifold and insert must be absolutely free of contaminants such as fuel, oil, etc. A good degreaser/cleaner should be used before installation.


If mating parts are not absolutely clean and free of contaminants, insert could become dislodged.
Cast arrow should be installed to front of manifold.

Tuning Tips

Due to improved fuel mixture and fuel atomization, your carburetor may require leaner jets.
After initial testing, spark plug readings should be taken and possible rejetting may be necessary.
