Default Begi intake manifold

I think I remember reading that they sold the last one. I don't think they make them in-house, unless they have a foundry. They most likely make them in batches. I could be wrong though.

I have this crazy idea, now hear me out guys: WHAT if you were to just call and ask them? Crazy, I know, but I think it might work.

yeah 18 that's what I was going to do Monday but I thought I might find out faster if I asked here or might find some one willing to sell.

Corky and crew DO NOT make this product anymore and I think they have already sold the last one on the shelf.

They are however experimenting with several welded aluminum IMs. This might be the right time to call Steph and see if they are looking for test cars...

Installing this part is 'not for the faint of heart', which means it won't be simple.
Really?

We do have one more casting left. It will be the last one ever made. We thought it was sold, but the customer changed his mind. I would only use this manifold if you are running a built motor and boosting more than 14 psi. Otherwise, you might loose power when you install it.

We are working on a new IM design made out of sheet metal. It is being installed (in house) for testing right now. Should have results within a week.

Installing an intake manifold is not like installing an exhaust header. It is more complicated since you have vacuum lines, EGR, throttle cables, etc. to deal with. Essential, it is a pain in the butt. But if you have the right application, it is worth it.

Any new's about a new sheet metal intake manifold or has Corky decided to continue with the one on your website? I'm starting to piece together parts for my extreme hp build-up and for what it cost to port and polish a stock manifold I can just buy a dedicated racing manifold.

Thanks,
Gregg

Well, when I read this:

I read:

What, may I ask, does it cost to port and polish a stock manifold as I can't just buy a dedicated racing manifold?
furthermore, when I read:

I see:

you understand why it's important to convey your message correctly? But I'm still confused as to why you were asking about porting and polishing a stock manifold when you are already going with a sheet metal IM for various reason is.

but seriou'sly, come acro's's like dumba's's 13 year old when type 'so horrid.

I'm just bringing up a point; I obviously couldn't understand you. Then you corrected me and explained you're going to do your own thing, which still doesn't quite make sense. I don't think I ever questioned what you were going to do, only you type so poorly that we cannot understand you.

I'm making a point, in jest. Chill out. Either roll with it or roll out.

Sheet metal manifolds make more power because they are shiny
