I actually sent an email today about it. Probably not going to be carbon, probably not going to be IRTB, probably not going to happen until I get a good price. Most places are qouting 20k for the mold and 1.2k for each piece. No one wants to pay 2k for an intake manifold, no matter how baller.

Was just curios if you finished it or not. Back in the day you were talking about it a lot and I just wanted to know what happened.

No nothing really happened on that front. I applied, worked towards it, but hit a fork in the road. My Fiancee signed up for Law School so I ended up relocating near her so that I could help support her. I got 5 new certs for SolidWorks, but that's about the only new thing I've accrued in the last year or so.

Is Boundary Engineering utilizing Chinese slave labor? If no, why not and pass the savings on to me?

On a lighter note, if i have one of your first run oil pump gears can I send it back and get it fitted to an oil pump so I don't lose that cash, when the time comes?

LOL, nope, made in Connecticut man, by a 30 year veteran of machine tools. Nothing against the Chinese, but for American made the price doesn't get any better.

If you want some fitted we can probably work something out. Drop me an email when you get close and I'll work you in.

Thanks!

All pumps have left! I can't say enough how sorry I am if anyone has been held up. We must of gotten like 80 orders in last 3-4 weeks. While its good for us, we can't prepare for that kind of throughput, and unfortunately it takes a few days to sometimes a week or more to get it sorted.

That is where THEEEE supplier is my friend. Master Machinist Stuart, hand assembles these there in the Durham area.

I just relocated to TX myself.
