Default 3D Print a plastic 3x00 UIM

I was looking at TKO's excellent 3x00 head and intake swap posts and had an idea.

This is 2016, we have 3D printers. How hard would it be to print one in plastic? Being plastic, it won't bring heat into the air as much as metal (not to mention weight) and being printed, we can make it however we like (look like the stock 3.4SFI for sleepers, bright red and angry for the showcar guys, etc.)

This might be doable for the LIM, and definitely for the UIM (since the UIM looks like it just moves air).

edit: it also means we can put LT1 throttle bodies on

that would be a good idea to try. I know some 3d printing is not that great but some process would be a good test bed for something like this
