Just a feeler to gauge any interest

appearantly using my spare M42 motor to fab a mani on
made life easy for the shop doing it.

so they'd be willing to make more...

please appreciate this may be the only shop on earth willing to
do just the MANI for E36 M42's...
all other references i;ve found have been Whole Kits

:D yeah yeah ok...

but there's a difference between "willling" to custom fab you one
and "pre made" ready to sell: cost $$$

also i never see any of these willing parties mentioning their services
on web boards..
so people need to spend time to find a "willing", skilled shop to make it.

and these people "willing" to do it will need your car while they measure
fab, etc..
also it's a super TIGHT engine bay (the m42) so costs of the "custom fab"
are going to be steep'ish..

I'll say having a spare motor for them to do this on made it easy
which saved me $$$

anyways it was a "feeler" for the sheeple..
Less the better it's kinda cool being one of only a handful of Fi'd BM 4 bangers around

it would be $950 Canadian shipped for the manifold.

I'll need to remove my spare motor from their shop at some point *sad*


*also 4cyl's don't have vanos only 94(?)+ 6's, my bad.
