Depends and I am looking into this option already but local to us. By "us", local to you and I

The company I am approaching first can do both and were involved in a 718 rocket engine printing study. It looks like there would be some post process heat treatment and machining which I could handle no problem. So I hope to figure out with them what makes the most sense economically (printing a prototype or going with investment casting from the start)

As for the scan... Scans are typically not complete meaning they have holes and sometimes blemishes/artifacts. I am using the scan to generate a CAD model and will also find out how this model needs to be configured for whatever process is chosen.

There is a lot going on behind the scenes on this project and a few others

Also glad you got Dan's car. I actually drove it once and considered buying it as well. Love the 80 931

Gotcha, definitely understand. It's so cool that things like this are in the works on a platform that most people don't even know about! Thanks for your effort!

Ditto. I only drove it on the test drive and from my front yard to the garage... I'm glad I am doing a bunch of work as the existing timing belt is pretty gnarly, but when I gave it only a bit of throttle on the test drive it was pretty thrilling. Old school turbocharging really is a hoot! I am very much looking forward to driving it this summer!
