    There is a sheet metal intake for sale on ebay. Here is the description:

    Looks like they are located out in Tampa, FL.

    Interestingly, there is also an identical looking manifold available on chinese wholesale site Alibaba: Bk-3413 N54 Billet Intake Manifold With Fuel Rail Kit Set - Buy N54 Intake Product on Alibaba.com

    I've also contacted the Alibaba seller to get a quote on a single unit.

    The freight for a single manifold is $145 by DHL.

    Who is interested in a possible group buy on these? I'd be happy to help organize one.

    Yep. Except if we can get enough we can start looking at sections of a shipping container instead, freight costs can drop a good chunk. Just depends on quantities I think. I have a friend who brings back granite in containers as well.

    Have they got any pics of the inside? Welds looking good from the outside doesn't mean much if there's jagged edges or stuff inside the runners

    I'd be down for a group buy as long as the inside looks as good as the outside.

    I've inquired about volume discounts, freight discounts and mix and matching.
