    I'm interested in how well this will do down the road for you. I've heard a lot of bad reviews on STS but if I do go the turbo route in the future going custom might be too expensive for me.

    Sounds like a pretty swell guy. ;) Edit: Thank you.

    I have been there and done that. With the right work, a rear mount can be a very good system. Xroller has one right now, and it is doing pretty well for him. Just needs proper attention to detail. Which the guys at STS overlook.

    Something I still need to learn how to do. Haha. But with off-roading I don't think a rear mount would be optimal.

    In regards to an N/A application, how soon can we expect a price and dyno results compared to stock?

    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? :confused:

    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 have been working with SIK X to draft up some ideas for his own style.

    I haven't heard anything from the original fabricator, since my last post on this subject.

    As soon as I hear anything about forward progress, I will certainly update.

    The one guy. Lol. You are a lucky man though. Had Toons truck been available at test fit time, it would be on his truck right now. ;) Crazy how things work out.

    Supposedly, one similar in design to yours, is being built with carbon fiber.....

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

    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.

    [​IMG]


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

    [​IMG]

    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.

    [​IMG]

    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... :)

    Nope. Go for it. Just because I am involved with trying to get projects moving forward, doesn't mean others cannot.

    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.
