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.

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!

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?
