Hoping Santa Claus will put a Hans & Greg manifold under my tree this Christmas!

Hi Greg / Hans

Any update on development/production, I am keen to know when some prototype manifolds might be reaching completion - I sure would like to test one?

Its my fault there haven't been many updates recently.

I have been trying hard to get my twinscrew supercharger kit completed. I do have an 89 with the intake removed now for completing the physical mockup testing. The upstream components (air filters, housings, intake plumbing) have all been designed and are currently being bid out. I have some plastic mockup parts here for those components, as well as the intake runners.

I hope to have some time after Thirdcoast to finalize the plenum design and get that fabricated for testing.

I will get some updated renderings posted of the plenum when I get back.

Thanks for being patient with my slow progress recently.

Hi Greg

I hope you are well and had a good New Year.

I wanted to follow up with you around the new intake manifold you and Hans are working on. I has a quick PM with Hans and I believe the project is to start moving again as time becomes available.

I am very keen to support the project and get my hands on a an early pre-production or prototype.

Let me know how things are progressing and if I can help in any way.

Regards
Martin

I need 25-30mm flange to mount ITBs to. Maybe printed plastic? ITB injector holes for vacuum pipes and idle stabilisator.

I have a vague recollection that someone has at some point tested feeding the stock S4 intake manifold from the side plates with two generously sized throttle bodies flowing a lot. What was the gain from that setup, compared to stock intake throttle body? On an otherwise stock car, my math predicts less than 8 hp but Iĺd like to get a reality check.
