    That one took between 10-12 hours.

    Re: Intake manifold

    How much of that time can be cut out with repeat builds?

    They told me that there is not that much overall interest and working with the Bosch programming is very difficult. They spent more time on the 3.6L then they typically spend on other engines. That's why the cost is $200 per ECU ID versus $100-$150 per ECU ID for other engines. GM hates the programming too. If you look at other VVT engines, the programming is done more traditionally. For example, we have four timing tables which get blended based on the intake and exhaust valve angles. The new VVT engine programming only has the traditional high octane and low octane timing tables. Sorry for rambling.
    Rambling is what I do. This is interesting information, albeit disappointing.

    Thanks for the support guys. As much as I'd like to tell you the manifold is complete I can't. I've been hospitalized for the last few days and they won't let me leave. Lol hopefully they will release me tonight or tmr morning and then I can get back to work.
