Got a big big question: roughly how many copies or pairs of these would be needed to fulful the 89 community. i.e. how much of a demand would there be? a.k.a. we would to see numbers in the 20 to 30 range, or better.

Probably closer to 6 sets to start with. Like you said some of the parts could be gotten like the V-Band Clamps and the hardware. My original idea was to have someone mill the tubular shapes on a lathe. Didn't get very far though. I was trying to figure out a way of making some pieces fit both the left and the right. Again, didn't get very far.

I would say the center block is a metering body. Just a bunch of ports and passages and probably springs and check valves.

Sorry guys for not updating on this. Looks like we will not have time to do this, this year.
For what it's worth: the way I would do this if I had to make side mechanics If I had an 89 car project going on: I would sculpt the parts that could not be found in existence out of clay. Then I would contact a foundry and find out what they need to have done from me. What I think they might need is a wax postive to make a sand neg, and then they pour the metal in which melts the wax out of a sprue into the sand mold. Let me elaborate: the wax is covered with a special sand. As you pour the molten metal into the top opening, the wax is instantly melted out the bottom sprue. The sand mold gets easily broken off when the metal is cooled. And I might be wrong on this. This is known as the "lost wax method". So from a silicone neg of the casting of the clay sculpture, you can pour in X no. of wax pieces. There are some silicones that will take pouring of certain metals. This could be done if the piece were just an open face mold. i.e. flat on one side.

I believe the wax is vaporized from the extreme heat of the molten metal.

Or... You could just go to the store and buy them.
