I didn't shoot for very long, will have to go back and see if I got any of you. What number was your car? It doesn't stand out like gesso or EO2K

Yah, mine is pretty subdued compared to EO2K and Gesso.

Silver NA with matching silver hardtop number 111 (yes, I'm lazy when comes to painters tape numbers)

Andy. I took pictures of you in the corkscrew. They are in the dump I posted. You were harder to catch than G and gesso. But I made sure to get a couple of you and albert too.

Re: vacuum cleaner sound

My GTX2867R makes the same whistling/singing sound I think you are hearing in the GTX2863R. It sounds like a big rig when you roll onto the throttle. I'm only guessing but I think it is the anti-surge porting in the compressor housing that makes that sound more pronounced. I know big rig turbos have the same porting. It's a fun sound to have.

Nice shots Ian!

It's funny how small my car looks compared to EO2K's NB

Awesome. With the ones you have left, give them out to random miata people, or just put them on random cars in random parking lots. Specifically target BRZ/FRS/S2k/Solstice's so they know what the real cool car really is.

Solstice's?
I am thinking slk320's, tt's, and Z4's.

On second thought, ​​​​​​you're right, those european drivers will never go for one of our cars.

I'll have to figure out a creative way to do something like that. Or just include a bunch with every part I sell
