Tim built it off the jig for fitment. Not the most beatuiful piece, no. We're going for function. Yeah, Corky loved making this thing. It is mild steel that is ceramic coated.

No price yet, waiting to see how well it works.

I do not know what schedule size. However, it is 0.145" wall thickness.

Good to know! Thanks Tim.

I will have prices of the S4 kit with V Band and EXT WG posted later this week. The car will be here in a day or so, I can photograph it real well, and fix one minor problem. The Ext WG vent tube had a real tight swage and needs to be loosened. Not a big deal and easy to fix. Otherwise, fitment was ok.

Guys, I saw this car Saturday...it is one VERY nice looking kit. Didn't get to see it run due to what I consider an expected first kit off the line error, but screams power and durability.

Watch out if rharris makes it to H2R next month.

The car itself is going to be awesome. The driver on the other hand.......hopes the car makes him look atleast half way decent.

The kit came out great. I was very impressed with the level work done on it. The downpipe hitting was the only part I was worried about before I got it, but it fits perfectly. Side to side gap is even and it is all one piece! No more messing with the long bolt to tighten up the DP.

I'm very impressed and we should be getting some serious power out of it when I drop it off on Friday.

on the next one, install the WG closer to horizontal and save yourself a wg bend.

It would hit brake lines if installed horizontally.

Corky keeps telling me that. In fact, he claims I do not need them at all.

^^^ Damn, and I just dropped all that money on upgrading the brakes. Should have just taken them out. Think of the weight savings...

Nice stuff Steph, looks sexy. What about bracing, does it have any? Need it?

No bracing so far. This manifold is much thicker than the standard manifold, therefore Corky does not think it will need a brace.

In for BIG dyno graphs when someone maxes this system out.

That's what I'm saying...

Why stop at 6...just come out and say: These go to 11!



Did we ever come to a conclusive call on why rharris's car didn't make the planned power?

Shouldn't intake manifold be the first thing on this list of things you're going to max out?

We never saw a fuel table, spark table, or datalog. They do not lie.
