Is that hand made ? or prototype ?
Seriously, the look is kinda ugly. Oh well, as long as it makes HP.

Nice manifold....looks like poop. But as long as it makes power it doesn't really matter. It's fiberglass don't over-tighten anything on it;

I believe retail is 699 smackaruus for that.

It's not the prettiest piece but I bet it will make a gob of Hp with your setup. thats why they say Function before Fashion. I bet it will look cool when it's on though

Hmmm $700 for that I dont know, I mean I see the function of it its pretty much the same design that was used in the HCI magazine when they were testing intake manifolds. I could probably make one of those also if you guys wanted, its not hard to fiberglass just what is inside I mean it cant be all fiberglass can it? I mean fiberglass materials alone would put that think at a cost of about $50-$75 to make so there has to be something else in there. Because would there be a problem once the fibers started pulling away do the the movement of air inside?

Ok, everything is on and runs well...

The car pulls like hell in the top end.. and seems to run well in the low end.. I can't tell a difference in low end...

The spring on the 70mm throttle body is stiffer than the 65mm one that I had, so it feels a little different...

I will get to the track or dyno sometime soon...
