Correct,

The only way to produce a manifold that is going to meet all those criteria that he wants, it's going to have to be a casted piece. It'll just be FAR too complicated and expensive to manufacture in a typical "weldment" fashion. Profit margins would be very slim if not non existent in the market, or limited to a VERY small group. Both of those make it rather difficult to justify the cost of tooling a mold for casting procedures.

I've looked into 930 intake manifolds here and decided it was not a viable and cost effective solution to produce a better flowing, "factory like" manifold as the gains vs cost and prift margin in the end are just too slim.
