Default Feeler: The demand for EDM/JDM square top intake manifold

Hi All,

I was telling my buddy about the square top intake goodness. He said that if there is enough demand he will talk to his Japanese brother-in-law (who is in the auto salvage business in Japan) about importing some to US. Just wanted to gauge the demand.

There's a ton of demand. Someone in California has already been importing and hoarding all the ones he can get his hands on and not selling a damned one of them.

How convenient. For the right price I'd be down.

I'd pay a healthy sum. Not an exorbitant sum, but a healthy one.

This is for a square top 01-05 intake. I will talk to him this evening, and it might take a week or so to get a reply.
