Every time someone else gets ID1Ks, Aidan dies a little inside. It makes me laugh.

Sean is just being an ***. I want them badly but don't want to pay for them. It's a common problem I run into.

He wants something that is proven to be track reliable. In kit form. Easy to install.

I didn't really address it specifically, but, I am very interested in keeping a high level of reliability on and off the track, and low level of fixing ****. I might try the trackspeed turbo kit when it's been completed, and has stood the test of time. Like in a few years.

I will be more than satisfied with double my horsepower, and a car that pulls harder and harder all the way to redline with immediate throttle response, and no mid corner boost/throttle control issues.

I've also never owned a supercharged car, but I have done a turbo build.

Plus, I went with the c30-90, which I could still use if/when I build the engine, and max out the rotrex >400whp

I wouldn't hold off on the TSE kit. Use their Inconel studs and you should have 0 issue with those hotside parts.

He has a serious talent for breaking things. He drives 10/10, flat out, every single day.
So when he asked about the brotrex, I actually didn't steer him away from it.

What does "US-Spec" on the OS Giken mean? Surprised to see that. Hope it doesn't mean we get something inferior.
