2 piece upper plenums
 
Seems to be some interest in these upper plenums. I would need to sell 5 plenums to do this batch. They will be $325 + shipping, and I will need a $120 non refundable deposit for all 5 plenums to get started. When I receive 5 deposits the aluminum will be ordered. Once the aluminum is delivered, I will give my self 3 months to complete all orders (could be sooner but no later). The Buyer will have 30 days to pay the balance upon completion. After 30 days the plenum will be sold to recover my costs. These will all be the same design as the plenums I did in the past. The buyer will be responsible for adding any vacuum/sensor ports. The plenum has a .25" wall so it can be drilled and tapped anywhere on the plenum. So lets see a show of hands of who wants one. Only post if you are 100% committed to buy one. Here are some pics if you have not already seen them. After we have 5 committed buyers I will post deposit info. I will be stating this same group buy on the other site, so if you post here dont post over there. This will just keep me less confused.


Thanks Adam

How do these compare with the stock upper piece for height when all mounted? Does it sit the higher? Lower? the same?

Thanks

Sit slightly higher than stock.

you might be able to make it work

if you have room for the plenum to roll backwards a little you could have the lower half cut & rewelded to remove some of the curve in the runners (namely the elbow in the runner right below the plenum)

this would give you a somewhat straighter passage to the head from the plenum , reduce height and move the plenum slightly back as I said above - if you have room behind it now

Since we already have enough to go ahead with the group buy. I will be ordering aluminum the end of next week. This should move along pretty quickly. If anyone still wants to get in, you have till the end of next week.

Thanks for the idea, I think I'm going to end up going back to a 1 piece. Its in a GTP and with the step down of the louvers on the rear hatch, I think I might just be hooped anyways. The TB can't go anywhere farther back in the engine bay or IT will start rubbing too.

I know Johnny Spiva from polybushing has one of my plenums on his gtp, but maybe his is a little different then yours.

Since Asa backed out of his second batch I have had my eyes on another experimental setup someone is working on, but for that price I might be in for one anyway. What else was there that you were considering putting into production? Something we had chatted about on Facebook. My memory is junk anymore. Probably all the metalworking fluids I breathe.:wink2:

Sorry don't recall chatting about doing anything else to these plenums. What you see here is the production part, and what you will receive.

I was referring to a different part altogether. I believe it was something for strengthening a transmission, but not something that has been done before. I am always looking into putting funds toward experimental parts for turbo Dodges. The crazier the better.

Oh maybe it was the 4140 chromoly end support plates I made for the 568 and 555.

Lmk if you would like to be added to the list, I'll be ordering aluminum the end of next week.

That was exactly what it was! Thanks. Awesome. I ended up messaging you on Facebook.

I think the louvers would still be in the way, as of right now the intake is about 1cm in front of the next step down of the louvers.
