They look great!!! Did you do any testing on cooling comparing these tins to the aftermarket ones or the original German ones?

I think this is fantastic, and will definitely order a set when the time come. Face it, at some point in time, OEM stuff will be hard to find in good condition.

Guys,

I am interested in a set of these to use on my 1776 build instead of the set of sorta' beat-up SCATs used by the PO.

My build is using "new" MOFOCO 042 Cylinder Heads and EMPI Dual 40 HPMX Carbs with OFFSET MANIFOLDS.

Can you give me a "general feel" as to the fitting/grinding/trimming that will be required to make these work?

I realize that I will need the parts in hand to do the final tweaking, but would appreciate a "feel" for what is involved.

Cutting/grinding/fitting ain't really a problem since I had to do quite a bit to get the EMPI Fan Shroud to fit the AUTOLINEA BT case! Rolling Eyes

Thanx in advance for any help/comments/recommendations!!

STAY WELL!! Cool Cool

Tom

well i do offer those services, theres are so many different manifolds out there, over several decades, i always have them send me 1 for mock up, only way to be sure,, these have the same fit as stock, so whatever yo ugot to to to VW tins, you would need to do to these

i do the empi bubble top case trimming all the time also

do it yourself, or i can, whatever makes sense

Guys,

Talk about "Just-In-Time- Inventory"!

I just received a set of Flaps and Thermostat from Clark (aka volkaholic1, aka Awesome Powdercoat) in today's (Friday, 6/11/2021) mail!

SOOOPER fast turnaround, since I only ordered on 6/02/2021!

Everything looks FANTASTIC! Flap assemblies black powder-coated, all new installation HW, and this set this set includes a NEW billows type thermostat that Clark fabricates.

Just need to see what I have to do to the EMPI fan shroud. Supposedly only need to drill few holes.

Would still appreciate any PROJECTED SPECIFICS that anyone might envision on the CYLINDER TIN MODIFICATIONS. If not, I will just go ahead and pre-order a set and do what I gotta' do!! Laughing Laughing

STAY WELL!! Cool Cool

Tom

I’m using stock tin with CB Performance offset manifolds with no issue. However my 044 Super Mags were acquired in’94 and are round port not wedge or oval port.

It's easy enough for the engine builder to trim them. If you have trouble trimming them you probably shouldn't be building an engine to begin with Twisted Evil Plus the best way to do it is trim based on the specific manifolds being used.


Yeah no shit, right?


Being a longtime hoarder of VW crap,
can tell you for certain that OG top tins in halfway-decent shape are getting rare indeed!


Thanks for stepping up and making these.
just slapped a set of battered OG tins on my last motor,
And now chasing a rattle that might just be from the holes all wallered out..

WAY better than using tin screws with the big washers underneath! Razz

if I have to trim yours to fit my intakes thats a no sale. as I can trim the cheeper ones that Ive never had any issues with...once I make them ready to work. of coarse I would also have to make yours ready to work for me too. so... good luck. I do like thicker& stiffer.
