Default FM back in the Supercharger business ...

http://www.flyinmiata.com/superchargers/index.php

Looks kind of like they are in a partnership with SOT to deliver the product ... sound familier?

Whats the big deal? Now there is one more Forced Induction kit out there for everyone to choose from. Its not affecting you at all and if you dont like dont support them and buy it. Its a good move for FM, SOT, Barkers, and the whole miata community.

I just found it interesting that they've come to market with another S/C. There didn't seem to be any hints of this happening.

Ironic that they are now selling a major competitors products. Not good or bad, just interesting.

They're just the middleman again. Except this time they're offering no/little support.

Probably none of it was planned. IE SOT called up FM out of the blue and threw them a deal. Comes at a good time for FM since they can't deliver turbo kits.

don't you mean the same kit you could already get, coupled with an engine management?

Hey Brain.... that's basically it.... The kit is the SOT one, minus elf + voodoo, or I assume the hydra, if you are going into the higher boost levels. When I was on FM's site, before the official announcements.... it was basically the SOT/BRP kit + voodoo.

Then it was confirmed later on with the announcements.

Dave,

Given that the majority of Miata owners can't tune their way out of a paper bag, isn't this a good thing? At least they'll have maps that get them close.

guess a well-rounded product line is more important than building it themselves.
