No kidding. I wasn't too thrilled with that machine finish, but it still was a lovely piece.

That was a far better intake configuration than that thing you're using now.

Plastic is better all around

1. thermal insulation properties

2. better flow through higher precision casting process

3. lower cost

Only reason against plastic is structural integrity, in case the upper part of the block needs some support.

LOL, that's an LSx intake. My Wilson setup if for a Mod Motor man. The G8 doesn't deserve that kind of wallet love from me

Yup, plus the bling factor

If it's just pipes with air, there's no point in using metal anymore. If it also has to hold a blower for example then I would want some extra strength.

Agreed. What typhoon has going on is ideal for a plastic intake.

Am I the only one who finds it funny that nowadays that's one of the more economical ways of making low production intake manifold? Cool video and nice piece.
