I was assuming you swapped your intake for a plastic lfx manifold? steel epoxy on plastic?

Yup, bonded on there pretty good. Was a total bitch to sand and smooth, worked on it for hours. It ain't going anywhere

I've had them on the car since December, no issues with daily driving or at the drag strip. I've always used MSD products.

Yeah, most people don't, but my personal friend went through 4 defective ones trying to get a full 6, and I think another member here (IneedAZ) had a topic in 2016 about it. Other people have hit or miss encounters with them also, but it seems to only be our cars, not the brand or something.
