Hey there Devin...as you can see this thread (the socal forum for that matter) is kinda dead. I live near oceanside and would be down to help out a bit once I get done with school for the semester. Don't know a whole lot but I'm willing to lend a hand :D
If the one your friend made was for a stock manifold I would doubt that it will fit over a fp mani. There used to be a vendor that made one but it was more complicated than just a couple of bolts to the manifold. It had a bracket or something that went with it
Well I found his username on here. It looks like he hasn't been on since December. Here's his tuners page: http://www.dsmtuners.com/forums/members/92awdgsx-29261.html
It looks like you may be able to get at him through an email or instant message. His homepage isn't active anymore so I guess...
There used to be a freelancer on here that made them. I can't remember his name, but he made two versions. One for cars without short route intercoolers and one with. I can dig through my pm's later to see if I can find his name on here. Maybe he can still make you one.
If you can't find the information here I often find that a google search usually gets me what I'm looking for :thumb:
"2g wheels on a 1g dsm" gave me an old thread on dsmtalk that was asking the same question you were.
I'm sure there is a GSX out there that can be bought under 5k. I bought my spyder bone stock with around a 100k on the clock, but it was well maintained by an old couple.
Also, this forum does not allow question regarding horsepower estimations, so that's something to avoid :thumb:
