Well I was waiting for local prices here in CT.

The guy Ibrought it to is on vaca so I am waiting longer as usual.

The stainless price was too high IMHO so I am waiting for this guy but I think the mild is a go from these guys.

I requested quotes from 3 Chicago area shops. One reply so far:

1 pair 304 SS-$150
1 pair mile steel-$100

8% discount per 10 pc order.

www.chicagowaterjet.com

I think we might be better off setting something up with a good Pontiac vendor, maybe IA? This way they can produce more and offer a lower price for everybody. What do you guys think?

Default I am a machinist

I am(was) a machinist, and I live in the Dallas area. I was about to check into interest for hedder flanges.Apparantly there is some. What format is your cad file? CATIA, UG, STL...? I really dont need it, just a drawing. If you prefer to keep your data proprietary, I will be taking dims off a set of heads this weekend if I get the time and I hope to get a prototype shortly thereafter. Are you sure you want individual flanges? I am a bit torn on that subject. Get in contact, and I will see what I can get them done for. If there is enough interest, I will come out of pocket for big lots, and keep them in stock in order to keep them cheap. I have the room. My name is Chris, email chrisg@netportusa.com

I'm going to check with the local machine shop I was talking about tomorrow on lunch (old friend).

If the price is right I'll post up that we have a green light. I'm planning to get everything going after Valentines day.


AND i still need confirmation of what changes need to be made to the D-port file. I still have a set of d-port gaskets from my Judge that I can bring in to measure.

All I know is that the center D ports on the number 3,5 and 4,6 cylinders are not correct. You would need to take some measurements and adjust the cad file to fit correctly.

The round ports as far as I know are accurate.

Hope that helps.

When someone does build some flanges, I hope they consider the hole sizes needed. I would think that the d-ports would need a hole sized for weld elbows and ram-air ports sized slightly larger. Remember the turbo will be the exhaust restriction, not the manifold and scavaging isn't going to happen with all the exhaust pressure.
I had a buddy that ran in the high 8's with 1 5/8" headers on a 327" Ford powered 3000lb 87 Mustang.

Yeah we have small pipes on the capri too and its in the mid 8's no need for big pipes here.

My guy had trouble opening the cad file he said he didn't need!

So he wants to know what program it was created on.

Now all of a sudden he needs the file. I think hes full of it but he is ussually dirt cheap.

I talked to my friend and his 3/8 BBC flanges were $85.00 a set in stainless.
So why are pontiacs more???
almost double. if those can be made these should be able to be made for that too. No?

Oh yeah I emailed some pics of muy manifolds to RARE to see if they thought it might be feasable to make cast parts. No word back yet.
Maybe some more guys should send some emails to show theres interest in these parts.

What do you guys think?If these avenues don't work out maybe we need to talk to ,SHHHH CHINA

I created all the files in Inventor (3D cad program) but sent them as a .dwg file so it can be opened in Autocad and basically all cad programs.
I’m using round port heads so I spent more time on that one and to make them fit perfectly to my heads… The D-port flanges was a prior project… All it needs is the holes elongated slightly (that was comparing them to 6H heads that I had) on the centerflanges, I don’t know if you guys corrected it on a cad program or what?

He said auto cad wouldn't open it.

I have autocad 2000 maybe I will try and open it too and see what happens.
