    Here is a intake manifold customized for one purpose, to race at the GS nationals.
    The Cooler Runner intake manifold wasn't approved yet to run in the class Dave Benisek was racing in.
    So Dave, Jim probably Oliver and maybe some other people got together to make this Frankenstein Manifold (pre Cooler Runner) Started life as a SP Stage 1 Dominator pattern from TA. Carb bolt pattern measures at 5 3\8 " square = 5.375 x 5.375 = Dominator.
    It was featured in a Kene-Bell news letter back In the day showing it on Dave's car.
    I'm sure knowing Dave, it created some controversy, you know, all the super secret stuff Dave was doing.
    I remember when Dave built a black box around his fuel pressure regulator and ran some electrical wires in it, they made him open the box in front of his competitors. LOL
    Anyway, I will offer up a piece of Buick history for a nice wall hanger or run it on an old skool set up.

    I'm going to have to step out of line. My engine builder laughed at me when I said "bragging rights!"

    Because they can . Price plus shipping sometimes kill the deal . Some WELL KNOWN members do it ALL the time on here . At least we didn't drag it out for days like some members do .

    Wow . I don't understand why you are so upset over another's post . It really is no concern to you . Were you harmed ?? No ! Then again no " Tire Kickers " plugged up the sale . Its open for you to jump on . Everyone that expressed interest in it bowed out in a short period of time which is their right under the rules to do . How many items for sale go thru many persons that express interest before they finally sell to someone ??

    With all due respect to Rod selling the intake I hope you understand the need for some to drop out of line . Good luck with the sale .

    I understand people will change their mind for a lot of different reasons when it comes to them. Can it be frustrating, yes, but its going to happen. Everybody is different.
    By the rules they have 48 hours to decide, buy or pass.
    Some of the reasoning is due to shipping cost, shipping costs has seen an increase in price, sometimes the buyer may have a more affordable shipping rate available to them.
    If someone has a better rate available, buy it and email a shipping label to the seller.
    Technically that is the better way, if a package is insured and there's a problem with damage or lost, the person that paid for the shipping has to submit the claim and receives the refund.

    Rephrased, I didn't have a problem with Buizila's post, he didn't have to delete it. I value the right to opinion and free speech.

    Obviously he had a problem with people passing on the sale after they were in line but that's the way things go . He deleted his post on this thread but found the time to send me a negative private message . Go figure !!

    Good luck with the sale Rod .
