Default Edelbrock Intake manifold

I searched and didnt come up with much really. Ive seen some guys use the Honda I think its the B18 Edelbrock intake mani for our cars. Why havent more people done this? Im guessing its not that optimal on a smaller turbo like my stock IHI but even so, its taking an eternity for the rest of the vendors to make a decent mani.

*edit* heres one of the threads i found

I think it would help anyone breathe better up top.... More people don't do it because it requires cutting and welding and most just want something they can buy and bolt on. Its not a bad option though. I wonder if any motors that they make the victor x manifold for have similar port spacing to the 1.6? I'd get one done in a heart beat.

I already sent payment for the feed and drain lines. It depends on when you guys are available. Also where did you do your build?? I live in a townhose with very little working space. I had already asked a co-worker if I could use his garage and he said I could but I would have to let him know in advance.

About your 1.6, are you building it?? are you boring it out?? what exactly are you doing??
