Stage 2 shipped!

At long last, well maybe not that long, we have shipped our first sets Stage 2 beta's. 4 sets have gone out, 1 set is still here to be be installed on Mike's car this week and one more set is going to Europe tomorrow. I took a bunch of pics of the final assembly process just so you guys can take a look. Looking forward to getting the numbers and hearing some feedback. Guess this is where the rubber meets the road. Also each set shipped with a bracket to hold the rear intake tube on. I have 5 brackets left of the first batch, these were done quick the next ones will be a little better, I remember a few people wanted them. Just email me. They are $25 each. I want to thank everyone for the support during the delays with these things. Cheers!

Nice touch with the bracket to hold the intake tube in place.

The little things do matter.

Looking forward to the beta testers reviews.....

Yes JP - That means YOU.

Recon, the only way to get new mani's would be to buy new turbos. Starting off with new turbos would just mean throwing most everything away except the housings. So it doesn't make much sense to do that. Changing the waste gate parts out essentially makes them new as far as wear parts. Thanks for the compliment man. Appreciate it....
