Well, ordered enough material to make 6 prototypes. Or 5 mistakes and 1 prototype, or somewhere in between.

Cant wait to see more on this. Even if the gains are minimal I would want one for the looks especially if the price is reasonable. For trying to bring a new product out for our platform

The goal for this manifold is to make it the go-to manifold for the highest level of competition. Max RPM and extreme power. It will support major power and allow builders to take the platform into the competitive levels to put up against other platforms. I think that 2014 is going to yield some interesting builds, and that we are going to finally see the Z, for once, leave its relatively sad comfort zone (as far as HP and acceleration contest) and get out there and make a scene.

It will be hard to beat OEM tuned manifolds for bolt-on NA cars with stock redline... and its difficult to design a manifold with that goal in mind without lots of trial and error, and many versions. There will be only one way to see what this does for NA engines.

Now that the cat is out of the bag, I am very anxious to get started on it. I wish I had some good stock here to start on it tonight... but I have to make some 350z triple pumps this weekend anyhow.

I don't know his forum name(or if he is even on this forum) but there is a marine who doesn't live too far off from me with a built twin turbo nismo with the kinetix preproduction intake manifold. The car looks badass with it.

It would definitely be better to run a metal intake manifold over a plastic one, I hear the stock manifold begins to swell at 16psi.

No doubt you will make it the best it can be. But the looks over ride the power.If I made this I'd be contacting the dealerships for manifold upgrades that they could sell and warranty when people buy. Just a random thoughtless idea.

Edit:I'm sure it will look good tho and that tends to be what sells these more than performance for this crowd. Just polish it, engrave some neked ladys or something into it, maybe some fake CF accents, and throw a JDM or two on there and it will sell like wildfire.

If you indeed have an NDA with CJM, wouldn't this post by itself be a violation of it?

I will prove you completely wrong. I have built many intake manifolds for many engines. All of them a great success. My DE manifold made over 100rwhp at redline on a 700hp car. I dont know your intake manifold design qualifications, or who you know that failed at what... but i dont fail.

CJM has never once made a "cosmetic" product. If we make it, its going to perform. Its that simple.

I'm interested in new manifold options. Do you think this will be as pricey as the GTM's GTR manifold kit? .... Probably too early to say anything yet is my guess.

Subbed!

Considering that the GTR manifold requires purchasing the GTR manifold, a new lower collector, new fuel rails, and a few hundred dollars or more in fuel lines... I am pretty sure we will come in lower.

not an nda with cjm different company. I have nothing to say on the gtr manifold swap that i havent previously in those threads, it's not a great performer and i'm sure this will out perform it. Just saying that it isn't a masterpiece, i qualify a "masterpiece of an intake manifold one that does things that are normaly seen as almost superstitious in performance quality. I meant no offense really i'm sure it will be a good manifold but not a masterpiece any time a compromise is made in design it automatically doesn't qualify. masterpieces of intake manifolds would be things like a hogan, or a dp manifold. fact for you a corvette c6r car has manifold openings the size of ONE of our throttles yet makes DOUBLE the horsepower that is a MASTERPIECE of a manifold to feed that engine and with the restrictors removed they make hundreds more horsepower.

The cosmetic comments also weren't a shot at you more at the fact that the prettiest new manifold is going to sell the best. Most of the guys who will throw down manifold money do it for looks not performance, over half of the cosworth de manifolds sold went to ostensibly show cars.

Look at the size of these inlets and remember this car had over 590whp yes there are only 2 inlets it is the tiny little silver piece in the bottom left that connects the 4"duct to the carbon fiber goodness for those that don't know
