beautiful manifold stein, couldn't you have made that with 5 elbows instead of 6? the 2 short runners look like they just might be able to be cut from the same elbow

I think 5 is definitely doable, but rather not risk doing it half assed. the design we are planning to start off with will be exactly like the one stein made, though my dad said he could easily make a long runner one as well like the etd long tube mani. it will just cost a bit more because of way more material/work needed to put one together. we are actually getting the piping/flanges together right now so I should have one made by mid january or so. anyways, If this takes off I will pay vendor fee's and what not and we will do this regularly, as he loves this kind of stuff and is eager to do it. btw, he's made manifolds for my previous rsx's and wrx's as well as dp's and welded aluminum i/c piping for fmic setups before, so he's no noob to this

anyways, sorry to threadjack

cant wait to see this thing installed and in action stein
(and lmk when you ship the els so I know when to expect them, and once again, thanx)
