You have your Miata out of commission since December waiting on this kit and we will talk. Sorry for acting like a "sourpuss" but in all honesty a man can only have so much patience. It's getting hot in Texas and all the nice driving weather is almost over and it will be back to 90-100 days next month.

Your setup is on the car right now doing final test fitting. I have to finish welding 2 v-bands flanges all the way around then get it boxed up, then go get the bolts you need for the turbo. Most likely looking Wednesday or Thursday to get it out. The big holdup on yours were getting the other NA mid pipes tacked together to verify the jig. I got those welded together over the weekend so now I can get yours out.

These are not production units. This is a beta test.

Lars is a bad guy for making you take your car apart in December.
I will give him a thorough tongue lashing when I see him.

I waited 7 months, 10 days, 3 hours, 20 minutes, and 42 seconds for mine ya scrub! (+/- 3 minutes, or however long it takes to get from Lars' neighborhood entrance to his driveway)

And then I had to work start/finish at a stage rally the rest of the weekend, drinking my growlers of beer when the EMS workers weren't paying attention. All while knowing it was in the back of my car, waiting to be driven home and installed.

My car was only on jack stands for 98 days though. Drove it N/A the rest of the time.





I can't believe I actually calculated that. Finals do some funny things to you.

And people who have already purchased them really want me to get them done and shipped to them. The list of people who want future setups is longer then the group buy list. Which I think is crazy. Shoot me an email if you are serious and I will add you to the list.

Sometimes I sit in my car and pretend I'm driving it and I make turbo sounds. I turn on the shop fan and pretend the wind is blowing through my luscious hair.

He-Man wears knee boots and has a bare midriff. That is all.

I want to place an order now, so I get it for Winter 2016.

Seriously though, looking forward to see how these turn out. Has me thinking about how to register my car in a non-OBD2 county. It's worth buying a PO Box 2 counties over right?

First, I want to start off by saying, I believe your car has to be insured at a physical address when getting inspections.

Second, now that Lars has the jig set up they should get made faster but getting it shipped, yeah your looking at some time in 2016 is my guess.

Yours should hopefully be going out tomorrow. I get home tonight, unbox some nuts from mcmastercar so you don't get older slightly used ones. Throw everything in your box and get it filled with packing material and get you a final price. Then print out shipping labels at work, go home, tape them on, drop off at UPS.

Really the group buy has been a learning experience for me. There are a lot of things I will change and do slightly differently in the future to hopefully speed things up.

Is one of the things not doing group buys? Cause I see that all the time on various forums, and I hope you're not scared away, since the product seems awesome.

I'd imagine it will get to the point for Lars, where his business operates similar to Abe's. He wont be as bogged down and will be able to build a kit at a time and turn it over to the customer in 6-8wks. The R&D and multiple orders is going to be intense I'd imagine over the course of this year.

But Hey Lars, this is a great problem to have. Corky, told me a month ago he is only selling a few kits a year. Here you are 5+ and the year isn't even half way over.

Unfortunately not yours. The goal is to get yours finished up this weekend so shipping it next week. Your downpipe is about 75% done, just needs final welding and O2 bung, axle back is done, mid pipe needs to be test fitted between downpipe and axle back and to have flanges and hanger welded on. This weekend is my little sisters graduation from grad school and I have family in town. So will be working around that as I have time.


As for how everything else is going. Down pipes are all mostly welded together I have learned to hold off on final welding until test fitting to make sure everything is good. The remaining NA mid pipes are about 75% done each, waiting for test fitting to make sure flanges are correct angles and such. NA axle backs are all cut and the mufflers have hangers on them, waiting to attach tail pipe and v-band connector until I have them hanging in the car so I can make sure fitment is good with mid pipes.

NB setups have the axle backs done. Down pipes need final welding and O2 bungs. Mid pipes need to be built, but the jig is ready. I will work on the 2 NB mid pipes as soon as I finish all the NA stuff.
