Already have one

In related news, going on 2 months later and still don't have all the parts I ordered(waiting on downpipe still). I'm impressed with the quality of the manifold and water/oil lines. Having to send individual reminders to ship each part is less impressive. I understand it's a small operation - I'm a small business owner myself - but I would expect a little more.

Also still waiting to see if I can study the shop vvt map since my setup will be so similar.

It will always amaze me at how much work goes into making a reliable track car

I think that's an unfair assumption on TSE that you're holding. When you ordered the kit two months ago everybody knew that there was still items waiting to be produced/in production. Its never fun to wait and i know that isn't a strong suit of myself but the end result will be worth it.

But the bottom line is he hit snags with production which he states in his thread about the kit and being a one man organization is never easy. Give it time and the results will be stellar. I am sure he could rush production and get the product out sooner but will it be what everybody is hoping for.... Probably not!

I took a little longer than I wanted to get all the NA downpipes shipped out due to MRLS prep, and then somehow forgot to ship Humjaba's when I did the rest of them earlier this week. Mea culpa. Everything should be out the door by now, so if you're reading this and you don't have a tracking number, harass me via email and phone.

I work in engineering, I understand snags and delays. More of a communication thing I guess - maybe a mailing list of people who have orders outstanding so everyone gets updated? I don't visit the forums all that frequently so maybe I missed the updates, but even in-stock items didn't ship until after multiple emails. No harm done, just suggesting that some more pro-active communication would go a long way.

Ran at the local 1/8 mile drag strip just for kicks and grins. Already tossed the slip but the best run of the night was 9.7s @ 72mph with a 2.1s 60' time.

Still sitting on all the turbo parts - need to get a clutch and other bits ordered. Life has been busy.
