(Mods please add a poll interested Yes No)
For real? - There has been talk before, but nobdy ever delivered. It was usually left that we'll consider making one, if we get say 25 people to pre-order and pay, with no not even a proto-type in existance to indicate if there were any real world gains over the stock manifold. Has Kooks actually looked into something for the 4200/I6 engines or are we still at the vaporware stage with no so much as a test mule fitted?

The majority of the people who own these vehicles use them for their family cars and aren't willing to put out that kind of money for their family car.
Of course the problem with getting people to step up was the fact that in each of the isolated instances, there wasn't so much as a prototype nor sample in existance. - Most of the people willing to perform an install wanted to know if there would be worthwhile gains. It's a little tough to take orders with payment, when the product doesn't exist.
You're other issue will be that some of those willing to swap out their exhaust manifolds may no longer be on this site. We can't really say where they are by name, but they're not here. (There was a split, I'm inclined to believe that the actual reason lies between what has been indicated by each side, which is usually the case in such instances).
