I've had one of the worst 3 month stretches of my life I can remember in recent times. I have been so busy dealing with car crashes, smashed windows, etc etc that I have been unable to finish these up. I have all the raw material now, its just a matter of scraping together the shop time to do the machining. The bungs look quite nice and are ready to go, I just need to machine the rails and bend the brackets.

These are definitely near the top of my list of things to get finished off. I am going to cut a couple of fan shrouds also while I am working on these. I installed my shroud and fan on my own 924 and its quite amazing to be honest. Its so quiet and nice.

I have also been required to fix the 924 almost nightly which has kind of tied up my free time. Had to build a new exhaust system from scratch, headlight problems, etc etc.

Sorry to hear about your troubles, hope things are better. I am interested in one of these too but I won't be ready for a while. Any idea what the price will be? What injectors work with it?

I am not selling the bungs separately on this batch. If I was they would be about 15 dollars each though.

Ok well, then what is the difference between these and just taking the 17mm Trans plugs and putting a hole in them?

Quite a bit actually.

Steel vs aluminum, trans plugs are tapered thread, these are not, I purchased trans plugs with the intent to 'just drill a hole in them'. They turned out to not be suitable.

Not that I am aware of.... just talked about by people who have never tried.
