Once the word truely gets out and your current customers have time to give feedback, orders will pickup. I think your biggest market will be for the T3 and Hybrid cars.

Personally I believe that just porting it out works enough. If i wanted to go extreme I would port out a TBI manifold, but that would be the end of it.

How fast have people gone on stock exhaust manifolds?

To me it's all about the price, if money wasn't an issue I probly wouldn't have disovered how much fun TD's were.
As in my daytona wasn't the first car on my wishlist when I was 15, the only reason I bought it is cause it didn't cost much more than a TU header :)

Actually, I'd really like to have an aftermarket intake for the SOHC head.. Probably never gunna happen, but it'd be nice..

Me and a guy off of a VW board are going to fab one up for me this summer/fall. He does a ton of them for most VWs, started HKK motorsports. The next time I talk to him, I will let him know that there may be an interest in them, and that he should keep all measurements, etc.

This is one he said, "Just playing around with plenum designs



The style he makes all the time.



He is doing mine cheap, as its the first, and Ill help out. (and we are buds, I guess, haha) But I believe he does them for 300 or 350 usually, IMO, a damn good price.

Might have gone a bit far with this, as I am unsure if he has any interest, but figured I see if there was any here.

O yeah, mine will be somewhere around 2.2 to 2.5 liters, as that is what I hear I4s want. Close to engine displacement in volume for thier intake.

How about a link or a picture? Got any perf. numbers? This is the first I've heard of your manifolds since I don't keep up with TD.com like I used to.
