Thanks people for the well wishes. As for passing it on, a few problems come to mind:
A- we sold them at a lose whereas they take a lot of work to build, I did them as work of love sort-of.
Fir anyone thinking about it, here's a partial list of the work involved
After drilling holes for 6 runners, cut 6" dia main plenum in half. This was done a jig
Cut runners from J pipes -special jig-
Press ends -special jigs- into triangles to match lower intake flange
Tack weld runners to plenum and to our custom base flange
Cut and form 1.5 dia tubing into velocity stacks
Weld V-stacks to inside of runners. Complete all runner welding. Note base welds must be done on 1" thick jig
End-mill TB flange to customer's needs if greater than 47mm
Weld front plenum flange in place.
Drill and tap rear flange for 3 vacuum fittings
Weld rear plenum flange on.
Cut 3"dia TB runner and fit between TB and Intake flange, add ERG fitting if required
Cut and fit and weld TB cable brackets
Work air grinders inside of runners for smooth airflow. A PIA must do.
Mount closed base testing flange, EGR and vacuum plugs and TB testing flange.
Pressure test unit for leaks, fix leaks and clean and prep for powder coating.
Ops , make a bracket for the MAP sensor. Powder coat intake and tops of 8mm 1.25 pt
cap bolts provided.
Ops again, surface grind base -table belt sander-
I''m sure I forgot a bunch of other steps. Also, this is very tedious work, if anything is off, it either won't fit or have vacuum leaks.
I would also have to spend at least a few days with anyone wanting to buy or whatever all our inventory and jigs to insurer they can build the intakes.
Minim required machines etc, Metal lath or end mill, TIG or MIG welder, min 4" x 24" table sander, 12-14" Miter cuter with stone wheels, Drill dress, vertical 3 ton hydraulic press. Good size band saw.
Materials : 1- 6"dia x 10" Tub, 6 - 1.25" dia J-pipes, 1 -3" dia Jipe, 5 custom CNC flanges.
With the market small, I just don't see anyone stepping up to the plate. Bummer too, as the intakes work great, make the 2.8 / 3.4 come alive. Dyno proven.
