There were hardly any made and as with all other breathing mods for the 30v, you're really not going to gain much - certainly not enough to justify the purchase price and the fact that you have to pull the engine to install them.

Default agree with $/power return, but was thinking....

that i have a supercharger now (G2)... there MIGHT be more gain/reason to attempt this in the future. SUPERSPRINT is the only brand i have ever seen for the 30v, and they were around $1000 a pair last time i looked. B5's are getting over 10 years old now, so i am going to guess production of these parts is done (?) and price has no reason to go down????

my $.02

You're better off cultivating a friendship with a good shop that can custom-bend/weld stainless-steel (it's not the same as welding regular steel, trust me), and having a set made for your application. The after-market for B5 parts is dwindlling, with each passing day/week/month/year. Less & less incentive for manufacturers to develop/make parts for a body/chassis/engine combo that isn't around any more. Less & less money to be made off of people willing to mod a barely moddable engine, especially.
