Nope. You guys have all the info that I have. I'd estimate $100 or more. Check out other Samco pieces. They're not cheap, but they're quality.

    I am interested. Price is a factor and is it just a replacement part or a performance upgrade?

    Both, it replaces a corrugated, failure prone intake elbow with a smooth walled, high temperature resistant part. Also maybe a small visual mod for a car nerd.

    But price is likely going to be much higher than the relatively cheap OEM parts. Possibly made up in not having to replace the OE intake elbow again and maybe the un-documentable 1hp gain. Just a higher quality part.

    Thanks MK

    Hp gain may not be it's main purpose but better than oem failure prone part. That sealed the deal I am in.

    Finally got a response from my contact. He's hoping to have tooling done late this week. I should have pricing soon. He's going to send me a set to test-fit. I'll get pics for you guys ASAP. Keep in mind, he's in the UK, so it'll take a bit to get them to me.
