No, lol... Not at all. Its more to the tune of 'well what do you expect out of that tiny building with 1 sales manager serving a multitude of customers'. Even more aligned with having the correct management skills to output to the demands and retaining quality. If that is not being met, bad pudding
I really couldn't care any bit less about what sort of facilities they have. If they're marketing off the shelf complete kits, then i'd like what i'm paying for.

They could be working in mud huts with straw roofs for all i know. Not something i think or care about.



Your argument is like.... I type something like this:

Completely understandable! High expectations are being set, not met.

Right,

So what has mt.net done for Mr. Bell to address these issues? Other than rant, give 2cent opinions, & fap to efr builds?

Obviously we want success, we want part options, as well as answers to delays.

Petition? Thread Sticky so he sees it? Obviously this forum is a niche percentage of customers who have a voice in the turbo miata world.

I'm all for proof in the pudding, and time will tell with Mr. Bell if this place and other customers continue to have issues.

What can WE do to address these issues, rather than not buy from them and let their business sink.

And actually I think they do have XP on their machines, could be wrong


*edit

Props to Emilio's post +++++1

Op, obviously you have choices and depending on your choice your experiences may differ.

It comes down to being physically/mentally prepared for the build, organization and having all your ducks lined in a row. Do this, keep your cool, and take your time.

We live in a free market. There should be no Miata turbo "Bail outs" required for a company.

That's a great question.

Ask not what A Company Who Charges You Money can do for you... Ask what you can do for the company.



We expect to keep our stuff organized and our ducks in a row. Is it unreasonable to expect the same from a company marketing pre-engineered turbo kits?

Completely reasonable, And with that being said obviously there are issues within the company.

But what has mt done other than jump on the hater wagon?? syrsly?

It's not too often I read a begi hate comment, "Oh they should do this" or "Steph should be fired, poor management etc"

It's never...

No thanks, not the point and you're not catching on.

I'm asking, why not try a more direct approach? Thread comments are buried in well, threads. I listed above some examples in a previous post.

Another idea would be why not have a dedicated sticky mega thread of everyone's complaints (past & present)? Hrmm?

What can we do for this company to assist in their success. A simple direct request of demand & reasonable services that are meeting all of 'our' expectations.

As usual Emillio nails it. Really depends on use. If you're just dicking around and driving to get ice cream, that 220hp is literally the kit, ecu, injectors, clutch, and exhaust. Start to drive it any harder than that and you're quickly going to need to start spending more money. I've kind of taken the learn from Bundy and friends approach to track proof my car since I have nearly the same issues as all of them, except cooling isnt as big of a deal and 100 hours take me 20 years and 7 sets of pads. That said, even at auto-x without ducting (I should probably work on that) but with a hood vent. If its over 85F out and I have to do more than 3 runs in a heat the ebay rad + monster fans need to get sprayed with cooling water between runs to keep the coolant temps below 220F.

RE Begi: Corkey is ok, they got to fix their logistics and nix steph.

As funny as it is to read all this, I will try and steer back to the OP.

So far in my build thread here:

https://www.miataturbo.net/build-thr...ommuter-80535/

I am currently at $1,790.62 total for turbo- related costs only. Clutch or reroute is not included in that total.

From my planning, the only other expenses I should have are for some straight 3" pipe and a boost gauge. Although something else may come up.

Mr. Bell, I am not interested in your turbo kit or parts but I would like you to come forward and give more details on the T5 Transmission project you previously talked about. I think a lot people will like to hear more from this project as well. Thank you very much.
Still can't fathom why I caught an infraction from responses towards similarity idiotic posts, such as this.

Much as anyone said, if you are building/marketing products, you are expected to deliver.

I for one wouldn't mind if begi went under. Then maybe their market share would be better utilized by a company that gives two *****

You obviously haven't been here long.

We are not miata.net. We are a bunch of ******** who prioritize informed and accurate posts, and have low tolerance for bullshit.

What's idiotic about my post? If the truth insults you that's not my problem.

My post was based EXCLUSIVELY on the issue that some people populate the mazda forums, to trash talk some particular vendors for the things they build and do. It is like they get paid to do this or they do it to deviate a potential costumer to persuade him to buy a product from someone else. The funny thing is that these people have never build **** for the miata community, and if you don't believe me I ask the negative posters to put their products in this particular thread... including you.

I actually wanna see if the negative posters have the ***** to trash talk some specific products in this website, including the Megasquirt and or whoever builds them.

Cut the horseshit, 80 percent of the parts he listed are somewhat for sale on his website. I do want to know more about the T5 transmission project he talked about tough.
