Yeah, I know the saying genius, except you're wrong. Now when this is posted,

"As far as pricing goes for now, my goal is to make racing affordable for the average guy. So the price will be reasonable, plus I have almost no overhead."

it makes a guy wonder, "hmm, should I pay 450 for begi or get what this dude has supposedly cheaper?" Obviously price is a factor in this build or he wouldn't have said that, and while "affordable" has been thrown around quite a bit, no numbers yet.

Now quiet honey, the men are talking, go find something to do before I crush you with my wallet.

Ok already I dont have all the details worked out yet, but I will be offering many different options, available for any engine. from $300 up to as much as you would like to spend. $300 will not get you one like in this build, something simpler like the begi.

I have been getting some definite interest in builds for 99 heads, how many of you would be interested? I am sourcing some flanges and its always cheaper to buy multiples, and that would make things cheaper for everyone. Also would anyone be interested if I made a carbon fiber model? if so I may sell the one Im using and start another proto type, the velocity stacks will be the hardest part of the build, but I think I could pull it off.

I've got a new one with miatas. 'If you have to ask...you probably can afford it.'

Miatas are very cheap compared to a lot of cars.

Haha not all miata owners are cheap. I can take orders any time, most of the info is on my web site in my sig. I take credit cards if that helps anyone.

Hey,

Wow, you work fast as you just got that flange on Thursday! I assume it worked out OK? Mostly interested in what you thought about the runner tube recesses as they were a huge help in my build. Let me know if you need something else.
