Well, I took a ride to my local speed shop, and they said they'd make me a nice aluminum short ram intake for $120. powder coating was an extra $60. He said if there was any interest, he'd talk about dropping the price down for a group buy. If there's interest, let me know! The more, the better. I'll talk to him if I get some interest in a few. 3" pipe, 2 fittings welded on for vacuum hoses.

Ok guys I've been talking to a local speed shop about making some intakes for our cars. Here's what I need to know:
A) who'd be interested and who'd be in for 100%
B) size of the intake pipe (2.25, 2.5 or 3 inches)
C) aluminium ( anodized ) or stainless steel ( powdercoated ). Anodizing is cheaper than powdercoating.
D) reasonable price you'd be willing to pay
I understand that it's based on the price of the intake. Right now a single intake out of 2.5 mendrel bend aluminium anodized whatever color I want would be about $155. Now about 45% of that is to cover anodizing alone, it costs about $20 more to anodize 14 tubes compared to anodizing 1 tube.
Let me hear some feedback.
This is just a sample of the pipe
