    Mosselman Turbo Manifold Group Buy

    GB is closed!

    I am putting together a group buy for the Mosselman turbo manifolds. These are cast iron T3 manifolds for internal wastegate turbos. You should be able to source this turbo from the junkyard, or purchase one from just about anywhere. Mosselman is willing to supply, but I do not have their pricing.

    This is what the manifold looks like:



    Here is a .pdf of the seemingly old brochure page.

    Nothing will be included with the manifold, so you will have to source the rest of the turbo system yourself. You will need a way to tune your engine. I recommend either an OBD1 conversion or a Megasquirt conversion. You WILL need to make other modifications to your car to make this work.


    Pricing
    The pricing, directly from Mosselman:
    1 piece 159,- Euro + 49,- Euro shipping costs to USA = 208,- Euro/each US$278.43 as of 01/18/2013
    5 pieces 149,- Euro + 32,- Euro shipping costs to USA = 181,- Euro/each US$242.29 as of 01/18/2013
    10 pieces 139,- Euro + 25,- Euro shipping costs to USA = 164,- Euro/each US$219.53 as of 01/18/2013
    20 pieces 119,- Euro + 19,- Euro shipping costs to USA = 138,- Euro/each US$184.73 as of 01/18/2013

    An additional shipping fee will apply, as the manifolds will ship to me for distribution on this continent. Paypal fees of $0.30 + 2.9% apply. A customs fee will apply to this order, adding $10 to each manifold.

    Here is the list of participating members. If your name is not on this list and you would like it to be, please make a post in this thread or send me a PM and I will add you.

    Re: Mosselman Turbo Manifold Group Buy

    Guys, for what it's worth, I did the math on this. Even though we're getting a discount, we have to sell at least 10 manifolds in order for them to be cheaper than us individually purchasing the manifolds. It even opens the option of contacting a speed shop that has one on the shelf. This hesitation is why I've waited to collect money, because it doesn't make financial sense for anyone involved to go through with this group buy, unless we have more than 10 participants. As soon as I have the contact information of all participants, I'll start taking payment through my personal paypal account. I then have to send the money to a bank account, wait for that to process, do the currency conversion, and wire the money to them. I know it sounds like a convoluted operation, but it's the only way I can see it working out properly. I can paypal them the money, but there's a 3.9% fee that we'd avoid by doing it Ocean's 11 style.

    For a cliff's notes version:

    We MUST sell 10 manifolds for this group buy to happen!

    I hadn't logged in in a while so I didn't notice the PM. I'm still totally in...I'm headed to Vegas for a year end meeting next week, but I'll PM my info and paypal funds when I return. IF we only hit 9, I will buy a second manifold to complete the GB.

    Right now, we're at 8. I'm trying to get more people on board, but it's looking grim. The cutoff date for orders to be placed is March 1st. That is when I will be taking the first payment. I will invoice for shipping since everyone will have a different shipping rate, but the manifolds have to be in my hands before I can quote shipping.

    Re: Mosselman Turbo Manifold Group Buy

    So, the amount I am collecting right now is $240 for each manifold. That will cover all Paypal fees, customs fees if I have to pay for them, and any other fees that may pop up with a package of at least 10 manifolds coming to my door. Anything extra will be put toward shipping or refunded to you in full.

    Since we met the deadline, you can still order a manifold, as long as you can pay for it by the payment deadline.

    If you want more than one, Just let me know and send twice as much. If we somehow hit 20 manifolds, everyone gets a refund if you paid at that 10 manifold level.
