    If anyone is wondering these are still being produced and are very good quality. Here are pics of the intake and valve covers I picked up.
     
  2. I have one of the blower intakes - they are of super nice quality and am very happy with mine !!

    Couple questions

    Will you be going to Carlisle Mopar Nationals as a vender or spectator?

    Can you supply the height difference between a stock dual quad manifold and your manifold?

    I am hopping one of your dual quad manifolds will fit under my hood.


    Thanks
    Alex D.

    The plan is to have Peter and a few of his products at my Carlisle booth. Hopefully, we can put it together.

    Any updates on the availability of the front cover? What options do you have for intake manifolds to fit a 330? Also, current pricing?
    Thanks, Steve

    Think the guy made some, something has caused the price of 4 & 2X4 OEM intakes to drop like a rock.

    Hi guys sorry for me difficulty contacting me. Firstly on the manifold front. Being a limited production item I was paying a premium to get manifolds cast. I placed an order last year and the foundry bumped the price per unit up by almost 50%. I couldn't justify passing that onto my customers. While talking to the foundry owner it became apparent he wanted to stop small specialist work and focus on production run work.
    I have been trying to secure a deal with a foundry. Today I got a commitment from a foundry to produce a sample run of 4 manifolds. These will be ready for me to collect on 1 August. If the quality is good and everything works out I will resume manifold production

    I'm sorry it's been a long battle,, I dropped the patterns off last year and have been chasing a sample and firm price. Us little guys go to the back of the line. I will drive to the foundry on the 1st of August and if the samples are not ready I will uplift the patterns.

    Part two
    I had a fantastic visit to Carlisle this time last year. Met some wonderful people but the highlight was meeting Mr Tom Waters, a true gentleman. On returning to nz the intent was to ramp up manifold production and complete the front cover. Unfortunately the foundry issues derailed the plans.
    Without going into details health issues got the better of me this year but simple gallbladder surgery and some forced rest I'm back to 100%.
    I will keep you guys posted on progress. I can't say I'm happy with the current supply issues,they undermine the efforts to be a reliable supplier of quality desoto manifolds
    Regards
    Peter

  27. Glad to hear about the followup. Good luck with the new foundry endeavor. If it pans out then a lot of advertising may make a larger run more profitable.

    Glad to hear you are well and the possibility of new manifolds still exist. If possible, can you post the height difference between a stock manifold and yours? I am trying to figure out if this setup will fit under my hood. Thanks and good luck.
