You can visably see the difference, conical is cone shaped. It starts larger by the engine and tapers down to the pipe. Its not alot of taper but it seems to improve perormance.

Using a non conical manifold will give you more run time.

Ive been expecting someone to correct my earlier post. The manifold sarts smaller by the engine and gets larger toward the pipe.
