I think Mat is still working on it. I haven't had time to run any more iterations because my free time is scarce right now. I think if Mat has one design he would like me to run I could do it, where you at Mat?
Ya, I'm still here. I made the decision to move over platforms to the Ecoboost, but I am working with Vargas on his projects now, and we both feel that it makes more sense to put our resources into a the twin turbo kit. The intake manifold will make more sense when we need a aux fuel rail for port injection when the hp numbers get to that point. Naffo and I got together about a month ago and tried to fit the wood model I made, and it will not fit as it is with stock rear air snorkel, and I have to go back and edit a few things. Also, I have had a crap ton of personal stuff happen to me this last month that kinda made car parts irrelevant. Sorry, $h!t happens, and sometimes you got to crap back at it. I am working on N54 stuff, I just do not post about it on the internet.
Better inlet manifold would be useful for everyone and not only a small niche market. This was so close, I hoped you could have finished this first.
By the way since the stock injectors are huge, I don't think people want or need a secondary port injection.
I don't see secondary port injection coming to this platform. A better designed manifold could net gains for everyone. Maybe cars with upgraded turbos would profit even more from it. So there is definitely a market for this product if it performs, at the right price.
I can neither confirm nor deny that I will be building his tooling for the log.
^^ There's a double negative there Mindy
I've dropped the kit, and I am working with him. I've given him my input and explained my capabilities. I'm not going into it, but my circumstances have changed, and I can no longer take on a project this large alone. Tony seems like an upright guy, and he should have a big twin kit soon. I'm doing everything I can to stay involved. I started Morkin Design & Performance in part to help shops like his bring projects to the market place, and second to make my own line of performance parts.
I was still just comparing your original plans with his current plans and commenting on the exhaust manifold and DP design plans even if it is rather theoretical and meaningless as your original plans will not actualize in those areas. I'm sure thought that his kit will be better with your help and involvement.
Now, the manifold is still in the works. I have to redesign it a little to fit within the constraints of the engine bay better, but right now it is a hobby and I have things to do that have a higher priority.
Pm me if you have something in mind. I honestly see myself going in this direction, helping performance shops bring their projects to life. BTW my CNC machine is about to get on a truck, I'll post pics when I get it running.
Anything ever come of this? Did you get your cnc machine running?
