My last email from CTS said they'd be ready 'in about two weeks'. Since that was about two weeks ago I've sent them an email seeking an update. I will post their answer here.

Email reply: WE WILL HAVE TEN WE CAN SHIP OUT ON MONDAY THE 14TH (I assume of May, 2018)

From an earlier email: "for a group buy of 10 tanks your cost would $280.25 plus shipping, we can ship from here via FedEx"

I will request info about preferred methods of payment.

Just ordered mine. Had a nice chat with Glenn, who owns a couple of GTV6's himself. Just an FYI, he mentioned that he had been expecting somebody to whip out a credit card and buy 10 of these, then deal with the distribution. Selling them individually is not an issue, however, but he did ask for a tiny bit more than the $280 mentioned. Still a bargain!

Thanks very much Eric for getting this done!

@ghnl - thanks for arranging for this super nicely built piece of kit, wish I could weld like that. I used to have a 2005 jaguar XJR and when you popped the plastic engine cover there was a gorgeous hand welded plenum, this will look nice under the hood and eliminate the cracked tank syndrome. Hope everyone who expressed interest can step up to buy, so we keep this valuable resource on good terms.

FYI I currently have installed a used original tank, they tend to last, after cracking two reproduction tanks that clearly were not designed to hold pressure.

Thanks again!

Ordered, installed, working great.

One observation is that the connections for the three small hoses are larger than on the original plastic tank. I had to replace those hoses with a larger diameter (1/4 inch). The large main hose at the bottom of the tank was a perfect fit.
