it's finally coming out!!!

Tyler,

Could you explain the removable top for the intake manifold? This one is quite different from your other manifolds. What is the purpose of the removable top?

The casting for this manifold is quite a bit more complicated than our others. The top plate is of no use once cast really, there was no way for the machines to access the inside of the plenum to clean up the castings with this design. We could have made design revisions to make that easier and cheaper, but that would remove a fair amount of performance. The access panel is there to allow proper removal of the casting plugs and irregularities inside the plenum and velocity stacks. The final manifolds will have a very nice CNC billet plate installed, these will look very nice and maybe even allow for different color options for a more personalized look in your engine bay.

Actually, all the castings will available in black only. The billet plates on top however, may be available in different color options.

The final product will look a lot closer this render:

Not sure what colors will be available yet, the logos are machined into the plate, not printed.

I really wish you guys would consider leaving the castings in machine finish or at least have it be an option.

We may still, it is not set in stone yet. They are not a machine finish, but a raw casting. Do keep in mind the raw castings do stain very easily, finger prints, tools, even water on a hot manifold will stain. And the porous casting is not easy to clean. This is one big reason to sell them coated, as the product ends up looking very nice for a very, very long time.

INTAKE MANIFOLD!!!!!! Let this be priced cheaper than the HPA Intake manfiold, and they should sell well

in my opinoin, I like the cast intake manifold without the color(s). I'd rather have an ALL black manifold (same as the //HPA). or simply machined with no powder coating?

I do not have final pricing yet, as we are still finishing up a few parts. But they are likely coming in at under 1000.00 before the pre-sale special. We are still working out finish options.
