Our current goal is a manifold/turbo/downpipe package by the end of the year, and full kits in Jan/Feb 2013.

You still willing to make that offer? I am about to start with the banning and I could always use additional dollars in my pocket.

Yes. This keeps happening when I am travelling and offline. I will send you a PM to discuss my entry in to political graft.

Prodding on verbose progress updates, fancy pics etc as we appear to be close to the jan/feb delivery goal.

I should have the first couple of pre-production manifolds in my hands next week. We will need to put some test miles on them before I start officially taking orders, but that should be done by February.

The initial package will be the manifold, turbo, downpipe, and likely a turbo crane. We will probably not offer the manifold/downpipe without a turbo, and pricing will be released when we're ready to take money for them. The standard turbo will be the 6258, which is good to ~325whp, and the option turbo will be the 6758 which will stretch to 400whp.

Sorry for not reading all 10 pages, but my studs just came loose AGAIN so it's now fubar.
Will the downpipe match up to the OEM cat location? Pre or post cat? what diam?

Also, realistically, you could be shipping production quality in March?
