Suitable software for car manifold exhaust?
Im VERY new to CFD,
in fact I havent started, my qualities lie in designing parts for pressure die-casting and plastic injection moulding.
At home Im a car enthusiast.
Now to my question.
I intend to redesign my exhaust manifold for my hobby car, and want to make the very most of a rebuild of the existing one.
What is your recommended freeware to start with? Is there a dedicated "exhaust-design" software out there?
Since my work is privare, freeware or shareware are my options.
I do my geometry work in Pro/E Wildfire 2 and Mechanica.

I went for Solidworks, modelling and flow. I guess it can be accurate, once I learnt to set up transient flows and pulses and heat dissipation and such.
Why does particle flow stop very early in my tube while flow strings work fine?
