I'd be in for one if the price was less than $300. That should make for a really healthy profit for someone.

If a vender is selling them for 475, what makes you think you snag one for 150?

On a completely unrelated topic how would you get your hands on a mazdaspeed IM, you know the ones that I believe to have ITB's? I honestly can't remember

The place I have been working for the past 3 months keeps giving me the run around on them. They are saying they have some one day and none the next. Supposedly they have one now, but only time will tell. If I can start getting them in I will sell them at whatever my cost is just to get these things out there.

If you can get them, then I would be down for one.

I had a company claiming they were trying to get them new from Japan, claimed that they were on backorder for ???? amount of time. They gave up. I said I would do a back-to-back dyno to see how well it would work on a FI Miata. Too bad it never happened. Maybe one day I'll get my hands on one.

Which makes you wonder...how the hell did Corksport get them? There was no demand 1.5yrs ago for them and it wasn't being discussed anywhere.

CS is currently out of them and are expecting another shipment towards the end of January. Guess there's a few people on the waiting list already and they aren't sure how many will be in this next shipment.

I figured what the hell and put my name in the hat at Corksport around last Christmas. I honestly didn't expect to get one, but it seemed worth filling out the order form on the off chance.

I got an email about a week ago. Corksport is expecting their shipment (which was due at the end of January) sometime at the end of July. They say "Mazda is backordered until then."

Alas.

I wonder if someone at Mazda is seeing orders or inquiries for these and is wondering "WTF?".
