Yessir. P/N: 13717838567.

The OEM one in stock is down at VF being used for measurements on supercharger manifold mockup at the present moment - but they should be finishing up on use within a few days. The others I have are already wrapped in 1x1 fibre.

Let me know if we need to get you out of a pinch and speed things up.

It will be free of charge while PYSpeed and Tecnocraft deal matters with UPS so Ben won't have to wait too long for the UPS claim

Although you may want to install this part in your vehicle; we suggest just avoid all risk possible at this time. We wouldn't want any issues or problems arising from this unfortunate mishap on your car. We know each car is customer's prize possession.

And that's what PYSpeed and Tecnocraft believe what customer service is all about.

Eric =)

....and that's why you guys rock!

UPDATE: So 9 days later Tecnocraft and PYspeed has got the new manifold to me. Can't wait to get it installed. Here's some updated pics.
I'm finding it a bit hard to swallow that I got charged $368 twice for receiving this package...
Oh look UPS didn't mangle my box this time


I bet they cant damage this one if it's wrapped like this!


Look at the layers of bubble wrap!

Hey Congrats Ben,

I would have bought the same thing but I went FI.

Eric is a great vendor and you should keep on buying from him.

good luck with the new mods.

Holy shit! Just heard the Tecnocraft Envy manifold yesterday, in fact drove around the block in it on another guys car. Sounds AMAZING!

When we started the car and pulled off I seriously thought he had exhaust or something, but it was just the manifold, charge pipe, and scoops.

No sure on the power gains, but I can tell you first hand that the sound is amazing, very aggressive, but not obnoxious what so ever. kind of sound that really bites when you want it to, but if you;re ejust cruising it's really not too obtrusive at all.

This is a mod I plan on doing for sure.

Have any vids? I'd be interested to hear how the full Envy sounds?

I only heard/drove a car with the Manifold and Charge Pipe.
