Save yourself $4000 from turbocharging your car just for the sound.
Not to mention the extra horsepower.

Boy, that's a piece of work... I submitted a question via the "Ask Us" button:
Quote:
Is this for real? What I mean is, you guys are asking $500 for a device that makes a sound similar to that of the bypass valve on a turbocharged engine?

I gotta ask- how many of these things have you guys sold? I mean, are there really that many retards in the world that this can actually be a viable product?
I'll be curious to see what, if any, response I get.

Actually, I found one on their website that's even better:
http://www.yourhotcar.com/product/li...ical_Door_Kits

Now, I can buy how doing a "Lambo" door kit on a Miata might be plausible, but does anyone else find it odd that they're listing a gullwing door kit for the Miata as well?

I have two hooked up in parallel with my sequential pcpro setup, being fed by a pair of twin tornados.

I'm looking to swap the SR20dett in my miata for a 13b to help my jdm weight balance for drifting.

Don't forget the magnets on the fuel line.

I got the gullwing kit a while back. Still haven't figured out how to attach it to the soft top? Whenever I open the door it just flops around and bangs up the side of the car. Any pro's out there with correct installation advice?
