How do sheet metal blower manifolds stand up to the loads placed on them by the blower belt? I am assuming that soft materials are used to provide the formability needed for the runners, especially. Are the finished manifolds stress-releived and/or heat treated?

There're not your typical "Sheet Metal" intakes like you see on a N/A motor. They are built out of cast aluminum. Either cast as one peice or built out of plates, plenums, and runners welded together.
