Just about done, now just need to finish porting the stock casting, and drilling and tapping the holes for the vacuum ports.

I will soon, Im getting ready for Buttonwillow on June 6th with NCRC. So it will defiantly be done by then and tested for the Laguna Seca miata challenge I plan on attending. So I may be offering exchanges in the next month or so. I am also trying out Cobalt friction products on 2 different cars at this event, if they are as good as they say I will be carrying them as well.

So just out of curiosity, does anyone know what it would take to get my MS to control a GM IAC?

Do you have AC? If not... don't bother with an idle control.

Haha its a 75mm stock ls1 TB why because I already had it, its all about the free. and I may not bother with idle control since its just a track car, I was just wondering if it would be worth doing.

Any thoughts on doing a 1.8 version? I tried visiting some things on your website but Im under the impression that its still under construction. Just wanted to see what you offer as far as forced induction and what 1.8 work you do.

I would do a 1.8. my web site should have some more things up on it in the next month or so, I still have a 45-50 hour a week full time job other than running my own business so things are a little slow at the moment, I will not sell anything that I have designed until I have track tested it, so I wont be selling the mani until next month. I have 2 versions of end links that will be available to. And will possibly be selling Cobalt Friction products. I am already a Hoosier tire, Magnuson, and STS turbo system dealer. I can get BFG and Nitto tires as well. And I am working on some race type carbon body parts, meaning skins for the doors, trunk, hard top, finish panel w/o licence plate cut out, bumpers and so on. they will not have provisions for conventional mounting but will be ultra light and strong for the track.

I street my track car and its fine idling happily at 900. I run errands in it and everything else without issue, ditch the idle stuff.

I want one!. Nice work. I cant make one, wish there were some intakes we could by for our cars- I guess BEGI has one, but wow, If you have a Chevy, you can pick from 100 intakes. If we want one, we have to make it

Ill start working up a price soon, I have to source some things as the velocity stacks that I used will not be a repeatable item, I am looking into some others that are readily available.
