I kinda preferred this kit for horizontal filter mount, and sensor taps on the engine block adapter part, but if its not going to happen Thompson makes a pretty nice kit as well.
it's going to happen, it's just a matter of time... the second cnc guy should have a quote to us by wednesday...

so i'll know something by thurday (i hope)

Can I still get in on this?

What oil cooler do you have?

I'd like to put the filter toward the front of the car (SS lines to the oil cooler are expensive). Is this feasible?

hustler, this **** hasn't even started yet, i'm having issues getting a cnc shop to make the block adaptor piece that i need.... and yes, you can run ss lines, to the cooler, and filter housing, and yes you can mount the filter on the front of the car... yes stainless lines are expensive, because you will need much larger hose, and special stinless fittings....

if there is an interest i can do a stainless line option as well...

I can probably live with slip-on, but I want -10 sized lines.

Slip-on becomes slip-off on a track car. Ask me how I know. I run -8JIC from what I remember.

I agree -10 is prolly over kill, but if hustler wants to pay for -10, he will get -10...

all other kits will come with -8 hose....

also, with stainless, it comes with the special fittings that screw on and lock the line in place...

if you want stainless we can do that, but it will cost more... all our kits will come with the hose as listed, unless a special request comes in... but since we will not be ordering stainless lines and such in bulk, it will cost more...

hey all, got some good news in.... (no price yet)

we should have prices by next tuesday if everything goes according to plan...

we talked to the cnc guy yesterday, and he thinks he can match the price point we are looking for....

he has to check with his suppliers and figure everything out, we set up an appointment for next tues...

so hopefully, i will have all the prices listed up tuesday night....

again... like i said....

I HAVE A **** LOAD OF MY OWN MONEY TIED UP IN THIS... WE HAVE TO PAY PREMIUM FOR THE PROTOTYPES, WE HAVE TO ORDER **** LOADS OF EVERYTHING...

I WANT TO START MOVING THIS **** SO I CAN GET MY MONEY BACK...

I AM AS ANXIOUS IF NOT MORE THAN EVERYONE ELSE TRYING TO GET THIS **** MOVING....

BUT AS IT STANDS RIGHT NOW... WE ARE GETTING EVERY PIECE FROM A DIFFERENT SUPPLIER, SO IT HAS BEEN A LOGISTICAL NIGHTMARE!!!
