Thank you. As you said though, we are also exited to see what a full-on badass effort yields too.

Savington , I have been through the thread and having seen your posts on other forums I think I know the answer already but because I have not seen it asked yet. Will there be a manifold or kit that will work with the 1.6? Tia

We will never do a 1.6 manifold, sorry. Upgrade to a 1.8L and use our kit.

it's because the 1.6 makes too much torque and power.

he's concerned for your safety.

Do what I originally offered with my setups. You will do a 1.6 setup, but will cost an additional $3500 and come with a nice built 1.8 motor.

Hey, I'm a turbo interested in your full kit. My buying period would be around tax time and my budget is very similar to the one you've quoted in your original post, so I'm very excited to see how this turns out!

Cheers!
Gerard from Toronto

Most likely you'll need a midpipe with a cat, preferably race cat.

Looking forward to seeing that tracking number in my inbox

In for track punishment results on this kit, it's extremely appealing!

I just pre-ordered a manifold and a set of wiseco piston rings (supertech ones burn too much oil for a street use)

Anthony,
I ordered a set of your injectors and picking up a clutch to install as well. So should be close to ready to take on the extra power.
Two questions First is do you have an idea your of O2 bung location planned out yet? And second is how far out you guys thinking for the intercooler setup? I may try to wait for yours.
Thanks
Tim

O2 bung is directly in front of the catalytic converter. No firm ETA on IC setup, but we're pushing for April.

Any news on ship dates for manifolds and turbos that have been prepaid?

Initial ETA from the foundry/machine shop was very late December, but I fully expect the holidays to throw a ~2 week wrench into that. My goal is to get manifolds on the way by January 15th. (If you've emailed me with that same question, I am running about 2 days behind on email right now. )

I will have details on downpipe pricing as well as inconel studs and A286 stainless turbine/CHRA fasteners in the next ~2 weeks. Once pricing is released to current pre-orders for downpipes/studs, expect the manifold/turbo combo to rise in price by at least $150.

If you are on the fence about a pre-order, I suggest getting off ASAP. I will not pre-announce a date for the price hike - you'll just wake up one morning and be sad without warning.

Four sessions at Buttonwillow today, running 3-4 seconds faster than SM pace in a full-weight NB2. Running at ~180whp/7psi until I can get a reroute and smaller intercooler installed. Only opened the hood to show people that it was turbocharged.

Kind of weird to drive a turbo car fast all day and not spin a single wrench.
