Going with a 960 engine on the project so I can't use this anymore. It's a fabricated sheet metal intake manifold I made from 3mm (.120) 6061 aluminum. The manifold is set up for a 960 intake flange which I'm also including. I have added quite a bit of material to the bottom of the 960 flange so it can be properly ported out. The runners are 46mm ID, 145mm long with parabolic velocity stacks. It's set up for a 960 throttle body and comes with the following:<p>X 960 65mm throttle body<br>X 960 head flange.<br>X Billet throttle spool I machined<br>X Custom cable adjuster I also fabricated.<br>X ~6ft length of throttle cable with a bare end to fit on the car<br>X Reinforcement rods inside the plenum<br>X Vacuum fitting block with 5 pilot holes<br>X Matching fuel rail with machined aluminum mounting posts.<p><B>Asking $800 shipped anywhere in the world.</B><p>PLEASE NOTE: I do not check my PM's or replies here often. I am most easily reached by E-Mail abuchka(AT)gmail(dot)com. Please do not hesitate to shoot me an E-Mail if you have any questions.<p>Regards, Alex Buchka<br> <br>Pictures:<p><IMG SRC="http://lh6.ggpht.com/_7EUAij74Ycw/SeaP05Hkw-I/AAAAAAAAUWg/FzOSrNjkQ-U/s800/DSC00140.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://lh5.ggpht.com/_7EUAij74Ycw/SeaP4QL5CqI/AAAAAAAAUWo/AiPE5LcX5a4/s800/DSC00142.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://lh3.ggpht.com/_7EUAij74Ycw/SYTncn4I9gI/AAAAAAAASJg/UKdvo3AwTNY/s800/DSC00079.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://lh3.ggpht.com/_7EUAij74Ycw/SZs-EZCq3JI/AAAAAAAASmg/DQOBp9apc3Y/s800/DSC00098.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://lh3.ggpht.com/_7EUAij74Ycw/SdHgjQkIvhI/AAAAAAAAT-E/95TOvjzoY4c/s800/DSC00123.jpg" BORDER="0"><br>The adjuster bracket, bolt and nut are all slotted so the cable can easily be removed.<p><IMG SRC="http://lh6.ggpht.com/_7EUAij74Ycw/SeaPwbmGMFI/AAAAAAAAUWQ/NiGcbNJEO-E/s800/DSC00138.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://lh4.ggpht.com/_7EUAij74Ycw/SeaPyGuZidI/AAAAAAAAUWY/sDGXEXFwIBo/s800/DSC00139.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://lh4.ggpht.com/_7EUAij74Ycw/SYMVPCzgCdI/AAAAAAAAR_g/gXAhUl0D_aE/s512/DSC00053.JPG" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://lh6.ggpht.com/_7EUAij74Ycw/SYOzju00mGI/AAAAAAAASEg/KGJ4lhYD12Q/s640/DSC00064.jpg" BORDER="0"><br>Manifold under construction.

Re: (Chilled Man)

Since it's set up for the 960 intake flange it is made to use silicone couplers to attach to the head.
