It's pretty cool to see the work going into the mold.:cool

DCS is making some tangible progress on the molds. Hopefully they are getting close to production. I'm sure those of us who are in the "pre-buy" are watching this, for everyone else it's an FYI.

Hmmm, my quote. Seems like DCS has been very quiet lately. Anyone know what's going on?

I'm not surprised.


It took BBK a couple of years to get their TPI intake to market.

I saw posts on that intake back in 2006. It is now in production and listed on their website-
BBK: 85-91 Corvette 85-92 Firebird, Camaro GM TPI Intake Manifold (http://www.bbkperformance.com/products/new-products/1985-1991-corvette-85-92-firebird-camaro-gm-tpi-intake-manifold.html)

News on the renegade, the foundry will be doing a test pour on thursday Jan 14. Should hear on friday what is going on, hope they turn out perfect.:beer

I've been eagerly following the progress of this intake also. Here are some pics of the first successful pour and casting. It looks lovely!
I know my car is going to benefit greatly from this. Not just in horsepower numbers either, I expect cold running and startup to be better than the X-Ram which just condenses all the gas in the upper plenum until it gets hot.

Anyway, here's the pics, IT LIVES :)

Looks great, but they've been a little quiet latley. Wondering whats' going on. We have any insiders on this forum?

Mmmmm...Its been less than four full days as of today since the last update. Define "lately", thanks.

Cartrax
02-07-10, 10:34 AM
Um... 8 days but who's counting. Was anticipatiing news from the 02/01 meeting.

"Update...1/30/10
The manifold was delivered back to the pattern maker on Friday morning 1/29/10 for their review of the continued machining process. No determination was made on Friday for next weeks pours at this time. We will be talking with the pattern maker on Monday 2/1/10 to see what is next and if any further corrections still need to be made. "

Actually, its been less than four, but you're are correct that the site hasn't been updated. The update was made on the crossfire fire forum instead and the site does need to be updated to reflect current status.

Updated today.

Yes, and it sounds like great news.

Before you know it you will be seeing crossfires front ends lifting off the ground and blowing past stock or ported crossfires at the track. If you don't have a renegade on your crossfire at the track, it is like visiting a brothel without wearing a jimmy. It will still be fun but you will come out a loser in the end.

You can quote me on that.:w

Don't want to jinx it by posting anything too optimistic, but progress continues to be made. Gotta be frustrating to deal with the ups & downs as the schedule slips due to factors beyond your control. A big thanks to Buccaneer and Elkabong for staying with it and keeping us up to date.

No sense rushing things, it will only turn out like crap if they sent out the first ones they made. If DCS isn't happy with it I will not be happy either. Good things take time. It is like taking your time to reel in a hot chick, anybody can pick up a hog but then you are stuck with a hog.:D

I only get the hot chicks, no sense riding around in a vette with a hog, just doesn't make sense. Now if I drove an old rusted out hatch back(hyundai pony, dodge omni, nissan micra) then ya, hog city.

Anyone close to the recent progress at DCS? Care to advise? Thanks.

DCS told me they started casting them around March 15th. So it shouldn't be too much longer.

Well, that's good news. Perhaps my car will get out of the shop this year. Wondering why that hasn't been more publicized. DCS "Skunkwerkz" like in LM's super secret high tech facility.

I see DCS has posted a progress report on their website - looks like good news. So I stand corrected - just anxious to have my guy get one and finish my car.

DCS tells me I'm #7 on their list so I should get mine pretty soon. I would think in the next two weeks.

That's great - not really sure where I am. I'm not ordering it directly. Hopefully I'll be cruising around with one sometime soon, also. I know my guy is buying more than just the manifold from DCS.

What is your big plans for the renegade? What other stuff are you ordering from DCS?

I have bought the following DCS parts:
2" tb's
that tool that adjusts the fuel pressure
the fuel pressure gauge
and the renegade(still waiting)

Similar -

90 Lb Injectors
Fuel pressure Gauge
Custom ECU Tune/Chip
TPS Harness

Looks like he's working the throttle bodies himself - may change.

All on a rebuilt 355 with cam & roller rocker arms - he's shooting for 350+ hp.

Also - new no CV exhaust, radiator, headers, some other minor tweaks.

Get this - I brought the car to his shop and told him I wanted a safe ride and something better than the worn down 200 hp stock plant. I think all he heard was "more hp"... good guy though, I like what he's doing but I'm anxious to get back on the road. The delays have been trying.

This is his Web Site - go to his shop projects and check-out Project Crossfire.
These are the before pics, which I soon hope will be expanded with "after pics".

Yep, he typically works the smaller engines but I think he saw mine as an opportunity for some real torque & muscle and the rep of being a CFI mechanic. He's been talking to the guys at DCS and it pretty much sounds like he's going with their advice.

This link has all the pictures he took plus the new crate.

How did the chip work for you? Did you notice a difference?

The engine isn't in the car yet. Will let you know when he gets that far. I don't think he has any of the DCS parts yet either. Renegade receipt estimate is like mid-May.
