I haven't noticed any actual difference in handling or suspension set up with and without an STB. I think it's more and NVH thing, just getting rid of some cowl shake.

Any update on the intercooler setup? Also would that be covered under the CARB cert when it gets one?

Have a great day,
Jared

No news. Intercoolers will be part of the CARB approved kits yes.

Sorry for getting stuck on this; I'm in the heavy research phase so pardon my tenacity.

I saw this setup: http://www.papdoc.gr/photos/rotrex/rotrex1600_1.jpg where they seemed to take the intake under and retain the stock STB. Looks like they removed that plastic wall with the relays, and plenty looks different. Your kit looks better resolved, even seems to have thicker tubes. Is rerouting the intake a possibility or is it something thats fixed?

We only offer the kit with the intake as shown, for both the intercooled and non-intercooled versions.

it is a 3 hours install.
1. 1 hour for injector plugs,
2. 1 hour for S/C oil cooler piping.
3. 1 hour for charger install.


when you remove and put back stock intake for smog. you don't have to do #1 and #2.

Not sure what you are referring to as the "racerkits".
Exact pricing for the as yet to be released components has not be set yet. Expect the intercooler upgrades to be very affordable.

Pretty much every full Miata kit variation will be available ala carte.

Sorry, I was mistaken. I thought I read at sometime that you refered to the DIY kit as the racers kit. I would like to know when you decide how much the intercooler kit will be to add to the DIY and the carb legal kit. I will be installing an Adaptronic very soon so I would not need the feuling portion but it would be nice to have the Carb cert. I will need ot make up my mind at some point.

I will be removing the PS and A/C soon. Is there going to be a carb legal kit fo that setup? I am shure I could just order it like the DIY style mounting.

Have a great day,
Jared

To be CARB legal (and to not get Emilio's *** in trouble with CARB) you'll have to buy the whole kit, exactly as certified.

That said what you do with the parts after you get them is up to you...

Has anyone tried the Racing Beat strut tower mount that they sell for use with their cold air intake setup? I just ordered one to try with my JRSC kit, I figured for $36 it was worth a shot in order to be able to keep the STB.

May be you all don't under stand the question. I did mention that I am going to be removing the PS and A/C. If you missed that you may want to read my post again. I am looking to find out it I can run the CARB Legal kit without PS and A/C?

I am not that dumb to think that the carb will not know. They will but I know for a fact that most smog techs will not begin to look for a piggy back ecm. The main reason I would want it is for the smog tech or incase I get pulled over and the clueless cop who thinks he knows everything wants to check my car for mods I can show him the carb cert and send him on his way. After seeing that he is mostlikely not going to be digging to deep. The adaptronic is going to be hidden and if he starts pulling panels in my car I will call my attorney on the sopt and get him to stop. I Have had my smog license in the past. So I know what goes into doing smogs. On top of that I would not be touching the factory ECM it will be in the car.

emilio, do you have any intent in having the NA kit's for power steering and a/c. i also noticed that there's three different options of "blowers" for the DIY kits(since that's the only NA one available currently through your site)are the horsepower numbers at the wheel or crank?
