I said for $900 you can buy new DCOE manifolds, throttle bodies, and fuel rails. From Pierce and off Ebay and other places. You don't offer an EFI kit for $900 nor did I mention one. The only advantage I see for this setup is installing a turbo. Not my cup of tea, and hopefully it fits around the master cylinder without impeding airflow. Its a nice design for those who need it.

Locally we have a casting shop that's relatively inexpensive. It costs about $300 to have triple throttle bodies cast - 2 pieces each. Then they need to be machined. I run them on my flathead Ford - and they share a base design with the Weber downdraft. In the long run its always cheaper to make casting tools than to individually machine each piece. It minimizes material costs and reduces machine time. Plus you can 3D print casting cores for low quantities. The payoff is likely at around 20 units given the size of the components.


I said it before.

This stuff isn’t what you are looking for then.

I appreciate the input but this isn’t targeted at the budget drivers.

I get enough emails from the budget guys and you sound like the guy they should go to instead of me.

I don’t disagree that casting is cost effective in quantities, but I’m not interested in casting anything.

Thanks
