**** sakes ... I already blew the load on the GT2554 setup :( I'm sure one of you guys will flake out on your engine build and I can swoop in and snag a set cheap

Well done Ben, nice to see a group buy come together with no drama. Miataturbo.net is officially the bestest at group buys.

Meh, nothing special about those prices, but keep talkin'. I do believe the one-two punch of kit discount multiplied by group buy might do the trick.

Hey guys, thanks for being cool here.
I don't think I got a single refund request. But I'll go over everything again to make sure, and I'll update the list this afternoon.

I don't have time to respond to all the PM's now. I'll get back with you this afternoon and get them answered. Also, we'll figure out shipping charges to Hawaii and Canada. My zip is 30548, and I'm not going to mark shipping up any, if you want to take a stab at it.

Oh, and the water pumps are nice, but are NOT the cool project that *hopefully* is in the works...

Splitime, when you build your engine up can i watch/help? Ive done little work here and there, but never a full build.

Unless your going to a shop. If you are lets see if we can get a deal for two engine builds.

I'm not planning a rebuild atm. I've built a few motors though, its not big deal. I use Apex Machine over by OHare to do the machine work... and then do the build myself.

You are more than welcome to participate when I get there though. Or bring your 1.6 over for swapping into my car and buy junk for it and we can do a refresh on it for 'fun'.

OK, I think I got all the PMs replied to, except those asking for the additional amount for shipping to Canada. You guys need to tell me what carrier to use, as I understand you can get raped on import fees through certain carriers.

Shipping to Hawaii looks like $15 using USPS. If there's a better carrier, let me know.

If I missed any PMs, let me know. I'm going to work on the list now.

Shipping to Hawaii looks like $42 using FedEx. If there's a better carrier, let me know.

OK, for our Canadian friends, USPS has a flat rate priority mail box that's $23 + 4.60 for insurance.
23+4.60=27.60
(295+27.60)*1.064= $343.25
All values in USD

Matt, you're in no rush right? Those *were* the retail prices. But it's something we can work on depending on the success of this buy.

tann3r, did you sign up just for this? :gay:
