So I was thinking about building a 65 cuda into a bit of a rat rod with a spare 5.7 siting in the shop and the only intakes I could find are XV $600 so I checked the mopar one and it is running $1000 the only eddy one I can find is the dual quad one and then I am over budget buying 2 carbs instead of one Is there an eddy or any knock offs who are not looking to pay for the entire production operation off of one manifold sale? I mean come on... there are 5 different single 4 manifolds for the LS1 under $400 I can get an eddy for $265 from summit and a complete conversion kit with computer for the price of an XV bare manifold!!!

So much for my dream of being the first with a t-quad on a 5.7... the bastards at "MOPAR SUCKS PERFORMANCE FROM THER ENGINES" are makeing sure of that!

the prices are ubsurd. from indy you can buy a mod man with the eddie carbs and linkage for $1100. almost the same price as the drag pack intake. it really annoys me because i want the drag pack intake but i wont spend 1k on it.

with the mod man, it has bosses to hide the coils also

Welcome to the world of LS.
What would be nice is the drag pack intake shorter and in plastic for 400.00. Hello Mopar!!!!!!!

Already started. 2 sets of heads and looking for a short block.But when you spend 1000.00 dollars on an intake that is cast your They have good prices on bare 6.1 block that is a 1000.00 but for an intake I will go custom before spending that amount.
If you think that if they sell 10000 intake the price will magically start to fall well then go ahead hold you breath.
They came out with the apache cylinder head that may sell 10000 sets.The heads are fully assembled for below 1000.00 a set. The manifold doesn't add up IMO.
Thanks for adding your opinion.

the reason that prices will come down when people buy is pretty simple,if one company can get the stuff moving others will start tooling up thats where competition sets in. from what i read about the dragpack intake its worth the money,since it is capable of making power.
the thing i have learnt from moparts is that everyone wants to go fast but most dont want to pay the price:(

You could buy the Eddy and fab a plate to add the thermoboooog. Man I love those carbs.
Had about 50 of them 20 years ago and tossed them in the garbage.

Instead of complaining, there's market opportunity, make the investment and develop, manufacture & sell an affordable intake.

I don't see that happening there no volume in sales for mopars.
IMO the intake works because it is a tunnel ram with a single carb straight shot to the piston.

This is why I don't understand the cost. The drag pack intake is not a marvel in engineering. It looks like the old Ramcharger intake and that intake looked like they used radiator hose to make it. LOL

The only eddy I can find is a dual quad without enough room for two thermoquads

The sales volume thing is BS because eddy does make the dual quad one with a more complicated casting and less people are gonna use it than they would a single 4. I am not oposed to paying more than a chevy guy for similar parts but this is out in left field even for mopar. Heck even the mopar single 4 not drag-pak intake is $1000 that is FOUR times the price of the chevy one not just double even
