I have the opportunity to purchase a rare dual four barrel intake manifold. I'm asking for information on how to make a mold of this for the purpose of casting duplicates.
I'm in Atlanta and visited a small foundry in West Point Ga. The told me the mold would run about $2000 but the casting would be cheaper. That wasn't much help so the idea hasn't progressed any since then.
Ok, so, can I make this mold without destroying the intake manifold? How should I proceed?
