    "The prototype of our MOTIV Intake Manifold is underway and on the mills. We designed it to fit E-series n54 and n55 as well as F-Series n55. Flow models, 3d protypes, and countless hours of CAD have gone into perfecting the final construction. Full production is expected to begin 1st quarter 2017. Pricing will be announced once production begins. Price will vary depending on options and whether you would like cast or full cnc.

    Data and detailed information to follow!"
  2. Looks good but, I can't help but to notice... Can we get some other things moving forward besides intake manifolds? LOL, it just feels like this is all the "new" we see anymore.

    Interested to see power numbers
  5. For those of us that already have the Motiv PI Kit, will the fuel rail in the kit work with this manifold or do we have to purchase another one?

    Good question because i run the ******* PI. What would be cool is if could use the intake manifold injector slots for a little direct port nitrous :D

    I thought my plenum was a bitch to machine. Not seeing how you're machining that with anything less than a 5 axis, or a 3+2 mill. Even then, no thank you, not me. Those runners too won't be enjoyable from billet. I'll understand an absurd price on this no doubt if does indeed carry one. Looks much more like a cast part to me!

  8. LOL, just what we need another intake manifold.... :D

    I'm beginning to wonder if there is going to be another company announcing one. The prices should be competitive though

    Believe Jake said the plan was to offer both billet and cast options. To your point, the billet version will be pricey due to design.

    Here is another one getting an update:

  12. So are they going to actually test this thing against other manifolds to prove its better, or just throw it out there with a $2500 price tag on it?

    Would love to see them send one to Tony to test and add to his manifoldapaloza!

    Well if you ever get your hands on one we'd love to get your take on it.
  15. I would love to! I have the front facing coming up soon. BKC just sent me their latest, and greatest, I have the FF, and and the doc race. Add this one to the mix, but I am sure Motiv wants to do their own testing

    It would be good for them to send one out to you for "3rd" party testing IMO.

    I agree!

    Can't wait for more of these to come out! This would be nice to have the two options
