    Where is the current place to get these? Google search shows a wits end link, but part is not listed on their site. The google search that hits the ih8mud vendor link is bad as well.

    I'm pretty sure they are discontinued. You can ask @landtank or @NLXTACY

    Maybe a little crazy, but have you thought about possibly 3d printing these parts? I know metal is nicer, but 3d could make the part more in the "wife allowable" budget for many.

    Under hood temp gets to be in the high 100 degrees range, pretty sure the 3D printed stuff isn't going to last very long in that environment.

    Put a way a little bit of money a month and by the time landtank get it all done you should be able to get it. It DOES feel like the engine can breath better, toss in a dorkel the difference is quite noticeable.
