I paid exactly $3250 plus the initial UPS. The manifold whas shipped free. D-A has been really good about questions and assistance and their manual is very good. The time between manifolds gave me a chance to look at cable routings and the like and was valuable. There is an electrical junction box between the upper and lower halves of the manifold that is sacrificed. You have to wrap the calbvbes with (supplied) electrical tape.
It is easy to get tha cable to the injectors too short. What you do right agfter removing the box is to fold the injector cable over so it is pointing toward the firewall and wrap this into the main cable run as far as wrapping the inoctor and main cable sheaths together for a very short distance to relieve strain on the injector wires. This will leave this cable long enough to have some slack when everything is done. Also route it to the inside of the engine relative to tha cable that clips to the bracket unsder the last manifold nut.

My car is a 8/15/96 assembly. The problenm I had was with the air injection nipple on the #1 injector. The injector was held to the fuel rail with a metal clip. There was a tab on the receptacle on the fuel rail that engaged the clip, which, in turn engaged a boss on the injector. The resu;lt was that the injecor ;could not be rotated with respect to the fuel rail, which was necessary to gain clearance fro the air injector nipple. There is a rib at the front of the D-A intake manifold that interfered with the nipple on the injector. D-A was aware of this problem on some cars and sent me a manifold with a releif cut in the rib. With the proper manifold, it literally snaped together in a few minutes (with minor cursing while aligning the compression fitting on the supply line to the fuel rail).
