    As promised things are moving quickly now, First sample manifold is done, I will have 2 samples in my hands early next week. We will them be bringing a full engine, subframe and intercooler all assembled on the engine stand with the proto kit on it to 034, they will then quickly take the individual pieces, (they already have most of them, but they want the full engine to make sure everything fits perfectly) and create the final production pieces. This kit is going to have decided advantages over the singles, using all 4 O2's in the proper places is one of the major ones, using the stock intake location is another, we will also be switching to boost activated gates as they can be tuned just as easily as the vacuum gates. Very excited to get these done and into the hands of our preorders.

    I would also make NOTE on the motor mounts you are using.... the newer ones are higher/stiffer (early production needed a new subframe and motor mounts) Click here to enlarge

    It must not change things too much because even the stock turbos are tight, as are the singles, and they interchange with all years, never seen a fitment issue bbrought up by anyone doing an install. But I'll take a look at them.

    As a side note, I've noticed you get caught up in forum BS a lot less these days and stick to the good $#@!, so props to you for that.

    Thanks man. I realized I do not have time for internet BS anymore. When I feel like posting something now that is not productive or strictly business, I just don't. Always ends up better in the end.

    +1. Let people say what they want. The best defense is silence and products that speak. There is an unspoken level of respect that come from people who don't waste time bickering even if the other person is wrong. CP-E for instance did this fairly well, and I think cobb manages to stay out of it alright. Even though with the stanback and the accessport, they are/were among the hottest conversations.

    Nice. Also loving the smaller collector tubes. Should get a little more spool I'd imagine.

    Can pick up quite a bit, but that wasnt even our spool issue with the prototype kit, we had other issues that were causing them, with those solved and the smaller runners, we should see some amazing spool.

    What were the other issues? Also looks like you'll be at Shift sector on Sunday. Are you bringing your shop car with the stage 2 batch 2's. I'll be there and would love to go for a ride!

    Wastgate, and tune related issues. I am waiting to be told if I can come Saturday or not. If they only let me come Sunday we may not come. Doesn't look like their will be any RB cars or anything that we want to run. It will prob be a game time decision if we go or not.

    Edit: Not really tune related issues at all, DME interfering issues that we had to overcome with tuning, is a more accurate description

    We most likely will not be selling these separately but haven't 100% ruled it out yet.
