VERY nice. Good to make your own for a HELLUVA lot cheaper than the other offerings out there if you can.

Keep us posted!

(something similar still in the works for the M62/3800 application).

Nice IC Looks like your building a split core type?
Are you going to plug the cooling lines too while your at it?

I need to figure out if those ports on the Series 1 L67 can be blocked or if they need to be bypassed. Are they in series, or parallel? Anyone got a Series 1 L67 lower intake laying around?
