I was trackin with you man, I'm currently in afghanistan and I just made a large order as well, FM has always been great about helping me meet my goals and explaining the ups and downs of different options. For my 96 daily driver I ordered:
FM II 2560
hard water/oil lines
ceramic coated turbine, manifold, and outlet
clip on injector adaptors
stage 8 locking hardware
Full turbo back 3"
Although I'm sure I could have saved a good amount of money doing a DIY, after reading through allot of posts on this forum and others I decided this would be the best route for me rather than attempting to piece together a kit while trying to follow the guidance and mixed opinions of many different people.
My goals are to build a solid well rounded performing car for autox, drag, and street use. For autox I knew a needed quick throttle response with predictable power characteristics so I looked a superchargers for a while but decided that I wouldn't get the power for the drag strip I wanted so I went with the 2560. I went with the FM kit because it seemed to be the best choice for ease of installation, and reliability and it comes with FM's support and knowledge which are all things I wanted since this is my daily driver.
Anyway I hope this was more of what you guys wanted from the other post let me know if there is anything else you would suggest like a good fast food joint.
