Pick any of the following: COOL. WOW. AWESOME. And thats just the beginning. I just received one of Peter's Desoto raised block intakes for review. Let me say straight up..... you guys are going to be VERY pleased. This intake is a first class part....from design to casting. Design 1: Peter took the time to incorporate the thermostat housing as well as a bypass hose port. This in itself will save everyone a ton of time and money trying to get the water in and out. 2: Interchangable tops are nothing new, but Peter took the time and effort to make them available for his intake. The 3 tops available should satisfy anyones needs. If not, its quite easy to design your own top plate. 3: I dont know how to classify the height of this intake, other than "just right". It has raised runners, but should still fit under most hoods without problems. Casting 1: Top notch mold and casting. This is NOT an amateur undertaking. The base weighs approximately 11 pounds. The casting is equal to, or exceeds any cast intake on the market. Period. Please feel free to ask questions. I'll try to answer about the intake the best that I can. I am sure Peter will correct me if I am mistaken. Peter will keep you updated as to "WHEN" and "HOW MUCH". I will have this intake at my Carlisle booth in July. Those attending will see first hand what a great job Peter has done.
