I'd like to see a few prototype pictures if possible just to get an idea of what fits where.
Are you guys at a point where you can post some?

We don't publicly release prototype pictures, sorry. We'll post pictures when production parts arrive.

Turbo hit block? That's a Faeflora-sized turbo.

It's not all that big, but the flow is amazing. Theseus has always been about pushing the boundaries of what's possible in a road race Miata, and the next frontier is 500whp, so I'm going there.

Let's keep on topic with the 6258 kit, though - if someone's really interested in a 7064 kit then they can send me a PM/email.

And when is that anyways? I feel like it's a little ways off, but somehow this thread took off. Maybe I missed something.

Ahhh, I thought you guys were close to production minus the Borg Warner turbo source. Keep us in the loop as some of us are holding off on our purchases until we get a peek at what you're planning. Since you've had so many road race cars that were turbocharged I would have thought that DNA would surface into your kits and pics of these would be relevant.

FWIW, any PM's would be kept private as I don't plan to produce turbo kits.

All the work and knowledge that has gone into my road-race turbo car is going directly into this kit. The running joke is that I've been doing R&D on these kits for 5 years

Well, we did free R&D for other people for a while, can you count that period?

That's why we're doing our own turbo kit - we figure that if we're going to be forced to pay for the R&D anyway, we may as well do it for ourselves instead of for other companies

I'm guessing that we're still too far away for a reasonably accurate ETA, but are we thinking in terms of months or years?

Months, likely Q3 2012.

Probably not. My suspicion is that we'll only have enough mani/turbo/DPs to fill our full kit orders. If we end up with surplus inventory in a year, then we'll look at a DIY kit.

FYI, if we were to sell those three parts separately, you'd be looking at a price tag of at least $2000.

No, they were only made for 3 years vs. 12 for the 1.8 variants. You're lucky if he makes them capable with '94-'97 1.8s.

I'm not bitter btw, it's a smart business move, us 1.6 guys have Abe.

Completely agree. 1.6 hardcore track junkies are few and far between.

I can't wait to see these things
