Thank you for including an estimated completion date in the photos. It's refreshing, after reading the BME thread.

Edit: I meant BMC, but I'll leave it as I typed it to explain the confusion posts below. :/

I'm stoked that you came back in time to share future design plans with us . Seriously though, I've had an inkling to have a manifold made for a while now, so I'm excited to see what other people do. Good luck!

BME? not sure what that is but, I am looking for a 1.6 manifold to start my build, or I will have to wait till after my next track day in February to finish it up. It will be a cluster of ideas I have seen in my research. I had my father in law machine up these velocity stacks to start with. I already have the most of the materials that I need but am still deciding on a domed end cap or a bend that will transition from one end of the plenum to the other. I also am debating using a ls1 throttle body since I have them laying around from my camaro build.

I don't think Nagase and I are talking about the same thing.

Warning

A lot of it is NWS, btw. Good way to kill some time if you have a fairly strong stomach.

Where did you get these, or did you make them yourself?

Father in law machined them it seems.
What size material did you start out with on those stacks. Pipe or round stock?
