      I was told a number by Pete himself, but after crunching numbers of the investment vs amount of manifolds potentially sold, it should be more affordable than the others but I'll let him say his price

      I'm going with his manifold regardless. Hopefully make their fuel rail 100% compatible with it.

      I saw the Unitronics 4motion bunny at Eurokracy this past week. They had a different intake mani than years past. It looked like complete and utter sh!te, it was a composite of some sort and almost looked like it was made by hand lol. I wouldnt be expecting any sort of quality product to come from them for the 2.5. Afterall, their BT 4mo bunny has been a trailer queen for what, 3-4 years?

      Yes and I heard it broke doing a pull. Not sure if true. I wouldn't mind a composite manifold, but the quality has to be there. And they are just as expensive to make as the hep and c2, so would cost the same.

      as you know, i'm not with Unitronic any more, but i'm still friends with some people there.

      last week i was shown a video of a race... 4mo Bunny vs the "battleship" .:R32 and a third car i dont remember.

      anyways, the rabbit won. it runs, and runs good.

      it WAS a trailer queen (1 year).. i'm only posting this to correct the record. no point on spreading lies. As for their intake manis, i have absolutely no clue...

      My brother is stationed in Pensacola and I was just down there for 4 days met a lot of dubbers big guy.. Lots of his buddies are into VW and all they talked about was GIAC for their 1.8ts and such. I told them UNI for oem turbo flashes Lugtronic for big turbo madness.

      I don't dislike Unitronic. I dislike who did the flash. They were doing something wrong and the tune would erase itself. I'm on my new tune done by someone else and zero problems. I was satisfied with the Uni tune when it was there. I still recommend it, the stage flashes, there BT tunes are meh compared to what else is out there, but I did hear months ago that something on that Rabbit broke doing a launch.

      I love you Fred

      Got a link to the video Fred?

      I have seen it do a pull in a parking lot (probably unitronics) and it sounded amazing

      I should have taken a pic of that Mani but my phone was dead.

      Tbh I'm surprised they still have it. I have not heard anything about it in almost a year. I figured it was scrapped for a ttrs like so many others are doing.

      I'm not speaking for all of Florida just Pensacola. The afb had tons of kids around 19-23yo with mk3-mk6 they have big gtg around there and I had mine down there and seemed like the majority just talked about GIAC, and how the local shop only deals GIAC and such. I recommended anything bit GIAC. Lol

      It's not a big mix of cars down there. It's either srt4, EVO, STI, or VWs that's it. Few Hondas here and there but not much else

      Actually, it was the same rapid prototype intake manifold that was on the car in years past, however, it was coated in a material that made it useable (and would be able to endure 30 PSI).

      The final product will be cast.

      It runs great! And feels like a bat out of hell @ 20 PSI. Pulled ~1 car on Unitronic's 530HP R32. Can't wait for 30 within the coming week! The car makes 53X (534 iirc) @ 22 PSI, so 30 should produce some great results.

      Is this guy serious? Do you know that something like that isn't possible with the way Unitronic software is written to the ECU, right?

      Tell us...what would happen when the software would "magically erase itself"? It would revert back to the stock programming?
