Early setups had polished intake tubes. Can't get them anymore.

I think he's looking for the all metal intake tubes from the filter to the compressor. I think those were only available early on.

Vortech actually made a polished setup on the early production runs. I'd be careful of those power pipes. Tough to tune!

Would be great if you could run with a slot-style MAF instead of the Abaco DBX MAF.

Does Abaco have a bad rep?

No... Just not the easiest to tune.

You are correct STL looking for the inlet tubes to the compressor. I was not aware that they were no longer available or even available at one time. I saw a pic of a Novi 2200 system that had polished inlet tubes. Appears that they will be hard to locate.

Not even sure those were offered on a production system.
