Damnit. I hadn't seen this post yet and just bought a Mani kit, Subue flanges and a V-band Outlet for a VF48... Do those shipped prices include Hawaii?

Some questions:
1) Is the group buy still active?
2) Would you also ship to mainland Europe?
3) Would you be able to do a full system with cat? If so, how much would that be? (Dutch law requires the cat to be visibly present for our MOT, as well as an exhaust gas test)

Thanks!

Interested in the group buy if this is still available. The $550 kit. Have a couple questions, will ask them if there is still a spot open.

Thanks!

Hello, sadly the GB is finished, there no 550 kits left, I do ship to europe as I am in europe

Looking to cast the first batch the next 2 weeks, hoped for Monday the 23rd but delayed again

I am in real rush with this and even though I am very late I have actually been very lucky lately with everything, stuff just seems to get a lot easier

This is something I have been making for the 1.6 td04l

Will there be another run of these? I have been looking at the TD04 19t for my car and would be interested in the manifold, elbow, and downpipe kit, I believe that was $550? If you plan to set another buy up, please let me know.

There will be another group buy on the NC manifold which will be a top mount for now

only concern I'd have glancing at pics is the lack of seat area for nuts
holes close to runners and you can see the surface area is not flat

Wish I bought one of these for my 1.6 instead of what I have now... these are amazing and very affordable.

Yes sadly that is a fault, the first batch will need a bit of the angle grinder treatment

This is only available for the 1.8, for now anyway, in principle if it works on the 1.8 i will make a 1.6 version. For the 1.6 i am still thinking a nice low mount or even better one with integrated exhaust housing

Thank you, and actually need to thank you for supporting me, without people like you it would been nearly impossible to be able to deliver it

The guy that made did it "top" mount when I told him i had power steering and ac... is that an issue to worry about or will a "bottom" mount work for all cars?

Angry Has anyone received their group buy orders?

As the title states, I am curious if anyone has received their group buy orders. I paid a $450 deposit on a full system 7 months ago and am still waiting. in the past I have exchanged a few emails and WhatsApp messages over the months for updates on the status of my order and is always told it should be just a few weeks more.

Since end the of August I have tried to contact Michael a few times and have not gotten any replies to my email or texts. Am I alone waiting for my order or are there others impatiently waiting?

Default Has anyone received their group buy orders?

I've had similar experience -- still waiting. I hope I didn't make a mistake trusting this guy. Promised ship dates have come and gone. Most recently, July 27, "I will be ready Tuesday" and Aug 30 "first on the list for Monday." My impression is that he's brilliant at making stuff and needs help on the business side.

I would agree with that assessment re: needing help on business end of things. Have you tried messaging him on facebook or posting on his page?

The two replies I listed above were from his FB account (kraken mx5/miata turbo performance and custom fabrication)

Michael is a good guy and i enjoyed the best service i could imagine...

My order was 3-4 weeks late (last winter), but the wait is worth it, 100% and i'm sure everyone gets their stuff.
