Anyone out there make a billet suction housing? Or a suction housing out of stronger material than what Berkeley uses?

Yes the guys that race the Eagle 21' boats up in Canada made some I have seen pics and have heard they cost a small fortune
I bet if Xerophobic reads this he will chime in
Here ya go I found some pics Xerophobic sent me a while back
so how much?????? left leg, right arm, and the first born
get blown or get blown away
I seem to recall it was in the 4-5000 dollar range for the billet one. A Dominator housing will do the job, much thicker than the ole' Berk housing.

what is the difference in the old smooth Dominator suctions and the later doms and berks beside having a smaller wear ring (size, flow, strength, etc.)
They have stonger webs on the side and a stronger front bearing support.
so the only differece in them is strength?
the suction in my boat isn't billet , but it's a heavier cast with a alloy that is more ductile with thicker walls and flanges . i ordered it with my hull that i got from NZ . it doesn't have a clean out and it can be spec'd with whatever brg. , seal and bowl pattern you like . it's what the kiwi's call a Muf intake , i think the guy who makes them name is Peter Muf , if you want more info contact Keelowcraft Boats @ www.jetboat.com their not cheap but a hell of a lot less than that Eagle billet badboy

They are about 5-6k from what i recall(dont actually work there anymore) and they accept AT internals. (Thats CND so about $80% for you guys south of the border)
No one has ever broken one tho even the T-58 turbine boat tried
