Nice try, again. I've ran a sr20 t25, gt2554r and a begi 2870. I have compiled over 120k boosted miles on my car from the old supercharger and my different turbos and daily'd the **** out of my car for 5 years and through 3 hurricanes.

But keep going. This is my new favorite thread.

It still amazes me how many times the FNG shows up boasting about his superior car knowledge/toughness/size of e-*****, and then demolishes all credibility with his desire for **** parts and and an unwillingness to listen to reason/seniority.

Also, my Greddy will smoke the **** out of your failtrex. (look at MY e-peen!)

Doesn't look like "The Pelican" survived the last hurricane.

This is also MY favorite thread. It's entertaining to watch adults make sexual orientation and dick jokes(ad nauseam) like perplexed 5th graders who discovered new words because someone else chose a different car part.

When you mentioned you were still in school, I didn't think you meant Elementary. Now run along and be certain to save your milk money so you can get "The Pelican" off blocks.

I don't own a Rotrex, but you're probably right.

Whoa, whoa.. Take a step back and re-read the thread. I never boated anything, or suggested I have a vast knowledge. I came on to complain that Kraftwerks sucks and was bombarded with insults.

What did you expect? You came to miataTURBO and started to whine about one of the crappiest superchargers on the market. Were we supposed to cry with you, powder your butt, and tell you that it's all going to be alright?

I suppose once you reach the 7th grade you'll be able to establish a timeline of events in order to determine which came first.

Just two more short years!

Finished?

Diesel,
Then you should be thanking me for supporting your position on the Rotrex. Not only are the blowers bad, the company is treating its customers like garbage.

So then really, what are you after? What's the end game here? If you had come saying "Rotrex sucks, I'm going turbo" or even with a better supercharger i'd wager the responses would have been MUCH more constructive (but not nearly as fun).

Ok, Rotrex sucks. We've already known established that. Now what are you going to DO about it?

OP, you should have searched here first before you bought into the Rotrex hysteria. Yeah it sucks that you are getting screwed, but we all knew this. And coming on here with Rotrex BS is like going to Home Depot and complaining about your airplane.

Now you can just...

Can you cancel the order? Then get it from this guy...Not mine, and no affiliation with seller.

You mean other than wait and probably complain more about the lies I've been told and garbage customer service from Kraftwerks?

Most likely nothing! At least not at this time...

All joking aside- The car needs boost. Even if it's just a hint of FI for me. My wife cannot handle a properly boosted car. Short of picking up another car for her to race and boosting mine properly, I am pretty much stuck. The first hint of throttle-oversteer is going to kick her in the grief-bone. She's not confident and this is her first year on the course... I'm buying myself time. Nothing more.

KJR,
That's more than I paid for the kit.

Thanks for link.

I decided to actually read the first post(lol). So, the problem is the group buy for the entire kit + intercooler, or just for the intercooler?

If you already have the kit go DIY with the intercooler or shell out the clams for the baller TDR intercooler kit. Honestly, I'd rather have the TDR kit instead.

Edit: Seems to be a delay for everything, hmm. **** it. I'd cancel my order. Drive the car N/A and buy an FM no-electronics kit, MS3x and kit that bitch with TSE studs.

I don't have anything. They won't ship until the charge pipes are finished, completing the kit.

Could you cancel the order, order just the kit from another vendor and get the TDR intercooler kit?

I could.
The problem is that the kit is not worth a dime more than I paid for it in terms of value. I got it cheap enough to suffer its shortcomings without much grief.
To purchase a base kit and then outfit it with TDR's stuff would run me nearly 1700.00 more. It's not worth it.

Met up with OP today and he bought my NB2 seats.

Didn't even know this was him/his thread...And we met before as well.

He was like "you should give me a price break cause you were a dick to me online"



Enjoy the seats bud

So what was the point to this thread? To come here to tell us that a shitty supercharger kit made by shitty company is shitty or the fact that you expected different when ordering a shitty supercharger kit by a shitty company?

Should have ordered a shanghai kit with a 2554 equivalent from begi, and an MS from Rev or Brain.. would have been boosting already.
