exhaust manifold

[ig′zȯst ‚man·ə‚fōld]
(mechanical engineering)
A branched system of pipes to carry waste emissions away from the piston chambers of an internal combustion engine.

exhaust manifold

The collector arrangement for exhaust gases of reciprocating engines. The manifold is attached to the individual exhaust ports and carries the exhaust gases overboard through a common discharge. See exhaust collector ring.

The heads of the engine are also aluminum; computer-aided engineering (CAE) was used extensively to help create a design that supports high airflow and optimized combustion for performance, fuel economy, and low emissions (the engine is PZEV capable--of course, low heat-loss exhaust manifolds and close-coupled catalysts certainly play significant roles in this capability).
