    Okay I have a question for you guys. I hit a snag in my build plans on my car. I just discovered a crack in my intake manifold on the motor I just bought to replace my motor. I do have a intake manifold on the motor that was in my car, but I would rather replace it with an aftermarket one as soon as possible. So my question to you guys is what brand should I go with and what is a ball park price I am looking at?

    thanks. I am not the greatest welder. and I don't have much going in the engine yet but its getting there. I figured if I replaced the intake manifold I would replace the throttle body, fuel rail, and injectors also. But that poses one more question are 390 cc injectors too big for an all motor build?

    It won't be a 10k build right away but it will get there pretty quick. I have a builder block which will be the one built up. the only thing that will be going on the car is the intake manifold, due to the crack. but I am planning the whole 9 yards. cams, cam gears, full headers back exhaust (which I already have), cai, port and pollish (if I can find a machine shop that will do it) titanium valves, and valve springs, high compression pistons, (forged most likely), I would like to bore the block out .020 and have the cylinders sleeved for the forged pistons, arp rod bolts. basically this is just me wanting to see how far I can go with the d16 motor without boosting it. Money really isn't an issue right now. its just the parts I need for this and which brands I should go with.

    I love the d16 but i think its a waste with an all motor build. i would spend that money on a b,h,k swap and already be that fast stock.
