What does this say about us as a group?
Roughly 100% of the Admin / Supermod 1.6 crew will not buy a trackspeed setup.

That must be the "hardware only" kit without the AEM

How...the hell do the intercooler pipes fit? Intercooler with the necks on the bottom?

Why was there no mention of JDM gauges before?

For the uninitiated, that is not a picture of our turbo kit.

Default Exhaust

Savington,

How much of the exhaust will be supplied with the kit? Just the downpipe? If so, am I correct in assuming it will mate with aftermarket parts from other vendors, such as FM? I'd like to go with a 3-inch diameter all the way back.

True full 3" downpipe will be supplied, but not the rest of the exhaust. We do plan on having an exhaust option in the future, may be available as soon as the kit is ready.

crashnscar, thanks for the reply.

Second, unrelated, question: I've noticed you don't offer any NC parts, and I assume you don't race the NCs. Do you have any plans to start running NCs or to develop an EFR turbo kit for the NCs?
