Haha, sorry I just had to do it :-D.

Mike I'm sorry if I come across rude, i don't mean to be. I know you know how rare they are. I would only sell my spare for that much.

It's cool mate everyone loves a bit of banter :P i dont find you rude, and i thankyou for apoligising incase i found you rude :)
I understand fully mate, if i had something which i wasn't keen on selling i'd be the same, its annoying as i had my chance to get one a couple months ago for a very good price but slipped through my fingers :( so been looking since and starting to give up tbh..

Ah i dont want a LMS inlet i dont like the look of them, i know they are replica's and probably just as good, also cheaper in most cases. I want a genuine inlet manifold and dont mind spending more than a LMS one would cost but dont think ill shed all my savings out on one :P

That would probably cost a fortune, especially a single order...... i know of one for sale for sensible money but was a bit more than i budgeted for.... but i might end up having it.

Well the guy wants £800 for his, i was only looking at spending £650 but maybe they are a bit more than first thought. The one i missed out on went for £450 on a regular website i use, so was very upset when i missed out :(

£800... yes they are rare but if someone spends that... theyre stupid....
Don't give up, pester Aaron for his spare... pffft, but don't spend more than £600.
You could have one beautifully made for far less...

Im after a second but I wont be going over £500 for that... And you're exactly right... for what you get power-wise... £600-800 is taking the piss a bit. You would be better off putting individual throttle bodies on.
But we are all suckers for the little badge that comes with the manifold... i certainly am but I got mine for £400 but mines not for sale as its being intergrated with a turbo system.

But keep your ear to the ground... put a standard manifold on and get the enigine in. You will find one but just dont pay £800... that guy needs to come back down to earth.

I've seen one completely smashed from a front end collision so maybe you'd need a replacement then during a rebuild..

@Mac and Simon - The spare manifold is for the spare engine I'm rebuilding. Well I've started collecting bits and bobs.

Mike, food for thought on the LMS one + plate. You could have it made up saying ford fiesta 0001 Instead of having puma written under the bonnet?

Hmmm its tempting to get a lms one made as it would end my search. But I would prefer a puma one as it will hols its value better, also if you do have a front end smash I could sell you it for £6000 :wink: which I would not wish on anyone.
