Hi Mike,

We have been working on this thing in our spare time, it wasn't our
intention to really make a kit of it at first...but our customers, and
specifically the gentleman who we did the work on this car for, have
convinced us to kit it.

At this point we've been working backwards, creating all the information we
need to make it into kit that's worthy of putting our name on (I'm an
automotive engineer and kind-of a picky bastard, like engineers are known to
be ;>) so I want people to be able to open the box and be able to get the
same results we were able to get...and that's tough to do.

To answer some of your questions:

1. Yes, a fuel computer system of some sort will be included. However,
keep in mind that the engine in the test car is fully built...piston, rods
etc. So the fueling in the test car is more aggressive, the boost is
higher, and the horsepower is greater because we built the hell out if it!
There is more HP yet to be released in that car...we're only getting warmed
up on that motor...right know it's still limited by the fuel system. The
stock motor will be a different story.

2. The kit is still likely a few months out. We are moving our business,
which is a good size, so it's painful. We haven't been able to spend much
time on the kit for the last month...and quite frankly won't get to until
later this month, and more in September. (Our move is in August). I would
look for a realistic release in October/November.

3. Price wise, it will depend on what the customer wants. Our goal is to
offer two styles, one for stock motors and one for built motors...and the
ability to upgrade between them. The price difference will not be great,
since the components won't change much, so somewhere around $4495 for the
base kit, and $5495 for the big power kit is realistic. We know that the
cheaper it is, the more we'll sell...so these prices are guessed very
high...so when we make it cheaper later...nobody will crucify us! ;>)

Thanks for the inquiry.

if it confilcts with things that are on the forums, don't be surprised.
