Yes. I've already sold two of them on ebay and am building another one to sell. I've actually sold more manifold building kits than complete manifolds.

We drove the car for about a month before I got a chance to dyno it, so it was already as dumbed down as it was going to get. What also helped is that the manifold's bore allowed for installing a larger throttle body.

That's good, sell 20 or so a month you will need a bigger shop and some workers.

I like the Tooter added on it. Add an trumpet with air blowing from it, in front or back of tooter too.

It's just a fun hobby and not my day job, Ed.
The last thing I'd ever want is employees!

Hey Ed,

Now just how could I ever manage employees when I can barely manage myself?
I'm all excited as tomorrow marks the beginning of a new project.
Going down to the machine shop to get the ball rolling.
