    Damn, looks rad man. How's the fitment on it? Did you have to make a couple cuts to get it all to line up? How wide are the runners?

    It's so large that I had to print it out in 5 pieces, so I just epoxied it together. It fits great!

    Stay tuned for more info.

    Definitely will, I've always wanted to do an ITB setup but it's too much math for me and my hand tools. If you could get this built I'd definitely buy one

    Are you sure the material's operating temperature rating is good enough?

    It's only for test fitting and flow benching. Not actually running.

    You'd be hard pressed to find a company willing to give away CAD files of a part that they are looking to produce.

    I see. Only assumed that this would be a fun project seeing as the age of the car.

    I hear what you're saying, but unfortunately the age of the car doesn't affect the cost of producing an all new part for it. It may sound crazy, but you're better off paying a fair price for newly developed parts for the car, since it will afford the company producing them to make more parts available to you.

    Part of the reason the Protege market has died off is because many businesses couldn't afford to continue to produce parts from them and pay their bills, so they turned their efforts elsewhere.

    I'm very cautious myself, to be honest.
