From memory they had few different designs so you can get one that is very rough on the lower pedal but very fine on the higher end or vise versa.
It was Big Gulp Performance... or at least the guys car was referred to as Big Gulp. 300HP Supercharged setup. I don't know if he's still around.

ctdrftna, I can't wait to see this thing running.

if all goes as planned, after this month ill just need to do my oil system and turbo coolant and oil lines, a breather setup, and the rest of my gages,wiring,vaccum and misc stuff, and im ready to fire. im hoping to have the car dyno'ed by the end of april. ofcourse i still have the bodywork, rebuilding the rear, and tires for my wheels and alignment befor it hits the track, realisticly im hoping to hit the track late summer to fall. i have money for the autokonexion gt widebody kit in the bank, im waiting for tax returns to order it cause i want a carbon vented hood,and trunk, and i want to buy material for a splitter and im thinking of having the fenders and flares made from kevlar

sounds sick as hell!

have you thought about going with the N2 replicas that rharris19 made for the wide body option......i know the GT kit is kind of pricey(but looks really good) but would be exspensive to replace if something happens to it on the track.....

i believe he was asking what they come from or what do you search for online/store when looking to buy a set as otherwise its obvious that they go towards the coolant reroute.

This is the most ridiculous **** ever... in a good way. This car is a long time coming, I sure hope you don't wreck it your first time out. Would be a shame to waste all of this fab work. I can't believe this thread is almost 2 years old.
