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.

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