Yes, we will be offering the polished and wrinkle black options. We can color match them just like we do with our other intake manifolds.

It's taking so long because the company making the tooling for us has had to adjust our model a few times. Each time they make an adjustment we have to confirm fitment in house. The adjustments are done to the tool so that the aluminum pour and thickness will be perfect and so the part can be machined the way we want it afterwards. There is a lot of machining done to this piece and it will be hot, but we are definitely taking our time with this one so it will be perfect. I think the pricing is right and these will be flying out the door. The cool thing is you can simply bolt it up and run it without making any other changes. Then when you get a secondary set of injectors you simply unscrew the injector hole plugs and install the injectors. This will be perfect for those that want to simply allow the factory computer and direct injection to control the car most of the time and have the secondary set of injectors come on when the fuel demands exceed the direct injection capabilities similar to the Underground Racing Lambos. It can also be used with a full standalone for those that want to not use the direct injection at all.

Okay, sign me up. What kind of HP gains are we looking at on stock turbos?

Honestly, after cleaning out the intake valves the other day, I'll make a deposit today.

A couple posts up they said May-June. Curious to see how this thing works out and what the tuners do with the option of secondary fueling.

at this point people are starting to go further on their own instead of waiting for tuners or vendors to have production items out.. hope this does come out though soon as I have a beast of a single turbo set up almost ready to fire up

It would be nice to hear from hpf on the specifics of the manifold. Did you get rid of the dent in the runner from cylinder #1. There's another vendor by the name of matt morkin that should have a manifold of his own ready in the next few months as well. Not sure if it will have the ability to add PFI though.

Stock Turbo's are way out of breath. The Intake Manifold is not the restriction on power. The restriction is the turbo's. Upgrade your turbo's then you can take advantage of this manifold

To Chris,

Can't wait to see finished product, if it's anything like the E46 Manifolds it will look pretty good under the hood.

I won't be upgrading turbos for a little bit, as mine are in perfect condition at the moment. However, this would keep the intake valves clean, correct? If so, sign me up. I'll eventually upgrade turbos, so it would be nice to already have this installed.

Would this be benefical for RBs on pump gas? Will it fit with a stock sized airbox?

Jeff has a good point, but we also need to realize that until we get over 800 whp we probably don't need secondary injectors. We first need to fix the valve float issues that kicks in around 700 whp. So again, kinda pointless to put the cart before the HP. Nice option though and it will be a nice looking piece once we get all the other issues with making big power worked out.
