What's the projected hp/tq improvements (if we're still under 300 hp/tq, is it really worth that price)? When would something like this be ready (e.g., giving a company money for something that won't be available until a year from now isn't really appealing to me)?

Not to be a downer or anything, because I would completely support such an endeavor, but we aren't talking about a couple hundred bucks here.

If this list is to gauge interest in such a kit, then by all means put me down.
I think ESS would come up with the 'terms' of the list. Believe a poster a few points up just said that you have to be ready to part with 5k, I think that statement was under the assumption that the conditions were favorable / fair
