The castings, I was told I would have last Friday, did not turn out. Corky said something about the metal was too cold when poured, so they have to redo it. I will get an updated ETA from him.

You guys need to stop screwing around and invest in your own in house foundry. Seriously.

Look what showed up last week!

The new manifold is almost build and ready for in house testing. In building the new manifold we have determined that the castings will work well and make it significantly faster to produce than a sheet metal manifold. So, more castings have been ordered!

The new BEGI Intake Manifold with the cast runners is made and off to powder coating. It will be installed and dyno tested within the next week. More castings have been ordered and manifolds will be available for purchase on the website in about 10 days!

you're onto something. long runners for mid-range and the butterflys open at 6-7k. Like the GSR manifold.

In a thread that's over 3 years old you're worried about not getting an update in the last week?
