Nice to see they built up new material in the 'armpit' before porting the cast manifold. That'* a touch not all sources provide. They look good.

I know they made a world of difference to me.
I'm sure a HARO will come due to the excitement of the freed up power

I did better than you. I ordered mine on the 16th of Oct and got them on the 29th of Dec.

Just don't take as long as I did to get them on

I got mine backtoday, granted I gave them to the welding shop on monday and then the machine shop on tuesday I still wanted them yesterday. The machine shop gave me some high end ceramic stuff I am painting them with.

Even though welding shop bolted them down, they still warped or were warped before.

Machine shop had to take off about 1/8th of metal off portions of them to get it milled right.


so what do you mean hulkspeed went out of business? you can still buy stuff from them lol.

Glad top see you finally got these Andrew. Enjoy!

BTW - If you want to get the silver ceramic coating, I highly recommend Jet-Hot. They did my GTP PEMs and the stuff is truly durable, The only problem is it costs just shy of $200 bucks (that includes round trip shipping.)

Here'* a pic of them after a year of use:
