akaryrye, no offense, but try reading thread
i mentioned that i already have megasquirt.

and i get that whole kit for about $1300-1400 shipped. and i have intercooler with piping half done. just need to modify intercooler to turbo pipe a bit to fit this layout (few pep boys bends would do)

the reason why im going with this kit is to build a relationship with this company. they too will be at HIN and SEMA this october (im showing my carputers there) and i will meet with them person-to-person. if this kit actually works and gets me to my desired 240whp (which i think it should with minor modifications and good tune - add $300-400 to that) i will gladly make a deal with them where they would supply core components and i would add engine management (such as megasquirt) and make a complete pnp kit for both 1.6 and 1.8 miata which would be under $2500 AND would give better results then greddy right off the box. as i see, most miata people look to get about 240-250whp (generally) and if i can do that with this kit and around $2-2.5k - i will be uber happy

btw, sorry if i dont make sense but its 2am and i was playing beer pong in the office half day today

also it seems like a more superior kit to greddy but costs a tad more though. from what they told me, they make manifolds themselves and those are cast units about 1/4" thick. will see...
if anyone is around LA and would like to take a look at it - i will be getting it in about a week (backorder, they only have 1.6 kits in stock right now) and i would gladly let you take a look at it and maybe even touch/hold it!

I actuallyam saying thanks for buying the kit. It will fianlly lay to rest how the quality is. Every couple of monthes it pops up but no one actualy gets it. Now someone will have it and be able to say what teh verdict is on it. Did they give you any ETA on it?
