Just letting people know that rough prices will be posted up tomorrow night.

I still need to ring two more places that had closed by the time I got around to ringing around tonight.

It appears that Design 3 is going to be a hell of a lot cheaper than Design 1 due to there being no 180degree bend to get around to the TB...

also, what state are these intake going to come back in? most people are going to want to have them polished and wont be too happy about scratches and deep guages that are hard to take out, have you thought about this? maybe covering them in contact or something prior to bending would be a good idea...

All the bending and cutting is getting done professionally at an exhaust place, it's not like we're beding them up in the back yard.

So if everyone decides on stainless steel pipes then they will arrive to us in mint condition. We will then wrap them in plactic and pack them carefully and they should arrive to everyone who ordered them in mint condition...

That's the idea anyway... :D

anyone wanna answer my question about bonnet clearance? Will it be okay with a EF bonnet?
Also, do we get to choose what colour rubber straps we want?

It will be ok with bonnet clearance... it would be a damn stupid design if it wasn't. We'll make sure it all fits snugly in there.

We will put up details of everything tomorrow night or the next. We still need to go in and talk to the guys that are doing the actual pipe work and get prices on hose clamps and rubber/silicon joiners.

option 3 is just the stainless pipes them selves and you will need to buy what ever to make them fit.

im the owner of option 3 and the pic of the engine bay... option 3.. (my intake) fitted into the ef airbox sweet.. its a lil more complicated than the pick lets on...

the long straight pipe had a silicon sleeve that slipped on the end closest to the airbox.. joining to another 5 cm lenghth of striaht pipe that was connected together AFTER being pushed through the AIRBOX hole.. (had a lip on the end of the 5 cm straight piece) so that it had a snug airtight fit in the airbox..
