To dial in the mill and get it ready for production, I made up a simple test project: The M paper weight (or pet rock 2.0 lol). This was the very first cuts made on the mill and it turned out exceptionally well. I am going to make up a few more of these as I continue to get everything dialed in and the mill ready for the intake production. I will include one of these with every pre-order of the intakes just as a fun freebie .

Expecting to begin intake production in a about a week, will update again as we get closer.
Thatís awesome! Looking forward to it

Extremely professional craftsmanship. A custom shop wouldn't even be this good. Very excited for the prototype. I don't want to get ahead of myself, but a custom engine cover would be the icing on the cake. Maybe next year for that. My pure turbo stage 2s will love those intakes.


Also exciting to hear about the CCV custom solutions , especially since us non-TUs don't have that CCV maize in the heads, I think, correct me if I'm wrong.

Massive difference on the 50i, was stuck at 515hp with stock intakes + stage 2 tune, downpipes & JB4. With new turbo inlets & intake power bumped to just a bit over 600hp and dropped 0-60 to 3.6 & 1/4 mile to 11.7. This is on a engine/transmission with 185k miles and no launch control.

Thanks TTV8M!


Update: Mill is now fully up to speed and dialed in, I am doing light production of the Intake Manifold support brackets now (see pic) but true intake manifold production will not begin until I finish up prior commitments for a friend and investor who made the acquisition of the mill possible. Only about 5-7 days left on that and then will have a time window to get the rest of the pieces in production. Will post update again at that time.

All of the aluminum parts will be Anodized Black, will leave some natural finish for those who prefer that finish or want to custom paint it. M logo will be added for all M versions (or by request).
