Any idea on price point? Looks badass, plenty of plenum with low height.

Yep, it was interesting to watch him fab it for is RX7. I thought he was a nut at first but it seems to work.

I am still foggy on what these are supposed to accomplish. Eliminate lean #7??? I assume torque will be down in the low RPM's for street cars.

It supposed to be more equalization and distribution to each runner. Air passes though a long slot after going though one plenum and is suppose to be better distributed to the next.

Yes, 2017 into 2018 brought a lot of different options for LS intakes. It was well overdue!

I would sure hope so. FAST intakes are way overpriced and BTR doesn't seem like the type of company that likes to gouge people.

Well I'd sure as **** hope so. These composite manifolds are the biggest racket going right now.

Does it look like it'l fit in a 4th gen? Seems pretty short.

Looks similar to the early 90's Chevy Indy design. Seems like the intake runners would be on the short side...

I'm sopping wet from that picture, but that's gotta be a prototype or different manifold cuz it sure isn't all cast.
