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

Fabricated Aluminum Intake FOR BMW N54 ENGINE 335i 535i Intake manifold with fuel rails. These intakes have been updated with
3mm sheet aluminum and will not bend or flex under vacuum or boost. Fuel rail included.

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.

So it's $270 + $145 ?

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