I've just had some very interesting quotes back for getting a batch of these CNC'd.

 

Watch this space.

I’m watching 😊
Q - you’ve designed this around the inlet port size of a CAM4810 cylinder head. I have a 12g295 head which I believe has a larger inlet size, any plans for an outlet manifold to suit a 12g295 or?

Well actually, yes, we also have a RACE version with the ports matched to 12G295 and 12G940 heads as well as an inlet manifold to take a HIF44 carb.

Now you’re talking!
Really impressed by this particularly as it’s specifically engineered for a 998.
Great website by the way👌

Hi are these inlet manifolds going to available for sale ? I would love one for a Hif 44 on a 12G940

Hi, I am building a 1310 (long slow project), today I spotted a couple of Eaton E45s locally and started dreaming / thinking about a supercharger.

 

Initially I was going with a HIF44 but then spotted a Weber DCOE 45 and in a moment of madness I paid for it (well I did some research first to ensure I knew what I was getting into. 

I love the look and sound of a Weber but half of it will be hidden in the AirBox that I will need to cut / weld into the bulkhead. Now with the DCOE mounted on the end of a Supercharger - how SEXY COOL!!

 

The problem is - the cost. Shelling out £1900 for a Vmaxscart kit is just not going to happen, so I wonder how much of a saving I could by doing it myself?

The answer to your question involves some simple maths: 

 

A - B = C

 

Where A is £1900, B is the amount it costs to build it yourself and C is the amount you could save by doing it yourself

 

As long as B is less than A you're laughing.

For the true answer you have to be entirely honest with your costs though.Classic car owners have been known to have trouble with this.
You have a well known auction site and access as to workshop tools,how difficult can it be?Steve..

www.podifold.com is now live!

We've worked our way through dozens of 3D printed mock-ups and trial fits to make sure our new components are perfect. Having one-off custom CNC'd parts made for our prototype was phenomenally expensive. However, by working closely with our manufacturing partner we are now able to offer these kits to you at a fantastic price.

Starting at 9pm on 12th November we will be opening a pre-ordering window that will run for 4 weeks until 9pm on 10th December. The first 5 people to pre-order during this time will get a full Podifold kit for the incredible price of just £1200. Once these are gone the kit will still be available during the pre-ordering window for just £1300. When the pre-ordering period is over the kits will only be available at their full final price of £1400.

The order for manufacture will be placed once the pre-order window has closed with a lead time of 30-50 days. All orders will be sent out as soon the items are received.
