Oh boy, a half assed china bay manifold that has mediocre engineering. I think I'll wait for BLOX to knock it off. I had better watch my mouth, skunk2 will issue a decree wanting to know the personal identity of CDM.

I agree completely with you. I am doubtful of anything Skunk2 makes.

Corky kept the intake manifolds, sorry. My preference has always been the cast intake manifold. I agree with you, but I am not in a position to do anything about it now. Corky made mention of doing a CNC manifold, but you would have to call him to see what his plans are.

It is good to doubt, keeps a person from getting screwed by swindler type businesses. I have TONS of doubt after dealing with BEGi.
Anyways, let other people try out these Skunk2 manifolds and then analyze their reviews. From the looks of the previews it seems to be a solid piece. I like the simplicity of the plenum, hopefully they offer a way to increase its volume like they do with their other proprietary products and that the opening to the runners are properly trumpeted. Curious also to see how the plenum holds up to boost.

Are you secretly employed by junk2 to publicize and hype their products?

I've seen thicker aluminum sheet in a beer can. No wonder.

And you're going to what, sell them back to the Bell clan so they can say, 'Hey we got cast aluminum intakes now!' Classic!
