That's what manifold means to me as well.

Though, there are exceptions to the "one" part, like intake manifolds with two inlets (dual plane is common), exhaust manifolds with two outlets (common on inline 6 engines), and also some really odd setups: https://speedmaster79.com/media/catalog/product/cache/1/thum...




That picture looks like an intake for a V8 and each trumpet is still for an individual cylinder; it's just that the intake ports on the heads are paired up for manufacturing and thermal efficiency.


My point was that manifolds aren't all many to one. This one is clearly many to many.
