"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!"

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 fuel it 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!

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.

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.
