Last I heard from the fabricator, is that he was waiting on some material to come in. My truck is getting some final touches to be able to drive again. Then all I have to do is setup a dyno day. But I want to do the dyno day for both, on the same day. Just to keep things as similar as possible.

I will try to get a hold of him today, and I will update as soon as I hear something.

This is such an odd recurring pattern... thread evaporation just before dyno runs. What makes dyno runs such an insurmountable obstacle?

Each situations different I'm sure, some people don't want to fork over the usually 150~ dollars for one. Some people (like me) have no real access to one.

I hope you don't think I'm being unduly critical or am just a do-nothing armchair quarterback.

I've already been doing what you and the manifold spacer guy are both struggling to do. I began with an idea and took it all the way from a concept through to a finished intake manifold.




I marketed them myself, and am using the profits to enjoy doing my own pure "crazy" R & D experimentation. (just the rough mockup )



This is not a static process. One idea flows into another and another. The fun and adventure is following that silver thread of ideas just to see where they will lead.

There was no great insurmountable struggle to produce dyno results, no leading people on with a long endless string of excuses why they weren't happening. I simply did the damn runs and posted the results.



Now the gains weren't astounding, but the runs were honest with nothing done to falsely enhance the results, and the gains were enough to sell manifolds at a modest price commensurate with their performance improvement. This has bought me the freedom to experiment further...

If I had the tools to make the stuff myself, the 1GR intake manifold would have been made years ago. I unfortunately am at the will of others' time and tools.
I understand, Tors... you do your best with what you got.
