Interest for intake spider to I.C. OBS?

Just trying to feel out the demand for the intake spider necessary to intercool an OBS.
Picked out my classes for Spring quarter today, and looks like I've got a 3-D rendering class, as well as metal foundry....sounds good to me.
Anyways, been looking into intercooling my 97 F250, and realized finding the spider off of a E99 7.3 (at a reasonable price) is like finding hens teeth.
My plan as of now is to track down an E99 spider, and make an exact 3-D rendering of it using CATIA. From here I will run flow simulations, to hopefully improve on the existing design. Next step will be to replicate this rendering in foam using a 3-D printer. From there, I plan to forge an (or multiple) exact replicas using the lost foam casting process, and hopefully get my money back on the original spider.

This is a feeler to gauge interest on anyone wanting to purchase an intercooler compatible intake spider. I'm not planning on turning a profit on these. Just enough to cover the cost of materials, and maybe put a few gallons of diesel in my rig. I will be working with some very knowledgeable people on this project, one of whom designed the engine subar*ew* used in their WRX, so no worries on some clapped together backyard project. I'll also be testing the replicas on my personal rig to ensure there are no issues.

sounds interesting enough, you could improve the design by making it so we dont have to put that cap in it to cover the holes that sensors used to go in, and you could also design some pipes that would work and possibly mass produce them

Eliminating the sensor holes was definitely part of my plan.
I haven't been able to get my hands on the banks kit. If I can find one, that sounds like a solid idea.

Another idea would be a bung for a boost gauge, I have mine tapped into the spyder and it seems to work very well.

Idealy I would do multiple bungs. One for boost and one for water/meth injection. Obviously these could be plugged if not in use.
