I see I'm on the list, but you should probably take me off. I'd be interested when the time comes for me to redo my coolant reroute, which is probably a very long time from now. I definitely wouldn't be part of the initial buy.

I will stay on the list until I hear a price, but I have a feeling this will be out of my range...

I am fair. I am getting a quote next week on materials and on my guy. so quote for whole product soon. I would like to make it myself so I dont have to pay someone to do the work I would be doing. But if its cheaper for you guys I will.

I'm interested. How soon can I have one in my hands? Also, 1.6 kits should have two ports for CLT sensors, right?

I didnt do this. I used my tstat housing and drilled and tapped that on the top. because there isnt very much space in the back of the engine. ie. i had to slice the bottom half of the coil pack bottom bolt hole because my "green" sensor was hitting. So its up to you where you want to put the green sensor. I am selling a spacer that will fit, like mine, I am making changes like adding a c'bore to accomedate a tstat. If you want hustler, send me a drawing of what your thinking of. I can make anything.
Depending on how well a repair goes on my grandfathers car this weekend, I should have them all done by sunday. (still no price, and you can back when I give you a price if its too high) I am probably going to make 15 for now, and set them at one price, and after those 15 are gone a new price slightly higher(unless we can do another group buy of course then price would stay fixed).

Pricing structure ala-marc style, lol, except you have pics....

I'll stay on the list as long as the price is accaptable to me...but tell ya what, if it is too high too bad for you...

Any idea of price, like is between 15-20, or like 20-30? At least an idea...

take me off the list for now. I think Corky is going to mock something up for me considering I already paid him for the last one.

there is only enough room for 2. transmission is directly below, coil pack is directly above, and the tstat housing takes up the other side. draw me what you think you might like to have. Still unknown about price but it looks to be around $50 but i could be off. (that may include shipping) but seriously guys I need to find out what its going to cost for me to make. I probably wont make very much on these(i will only be paid for my work, no mark up), espcially if I farm out then I probably wont make anything.

Considering standard shop time is between $60-80 and each of these pieces would take probably just under 20-30 minutes with a good setup and parts run. I'm sure you could do it faster if you did them all as a single parts run. So lets say $30 worth of shop time plus materials. It is probably going to be around $50 shipped.

I was supposed to make 15 of them this weekend but instead I sold a car and ripped the engine/tranny out of an old Jaguar race car(something clanging in the tranny from last weekend).

go ahead and sign me up for one. I'll commit. The more I think about it, this is the right thing to do. So please, make one for me and I'll get on paypal. My latest reroute parts were sent to the wrong state, so I'll just run whichever comes first, then sell the other.

Have you had any luck on making these? If you think it will be a while, let me know. I may have to fabricate it myself if you can't get to it in the next few weeks.

Thanks

As I wrote to hustler, I got caught up last weekend selling an old Jaguar MK2 with my grandfather and then repairing the racecar. I was racing it and the tranny blew, 3rd gear didnt have any teeth left, and something else blew apart. So thats why I dont have them done right now. I think I am going to farm it out so I can make sure you guys get your parts now. Even tho I would like to do it.

highroller, it's no problem, I was going to make one for myself anyway, but when you offered to make a bunch, I signed up. I can still make it, so don't do it for me. And I already have the material, so it's no big deal.
