We are always there for our customers. Ask any of them. Especially the tech support stuff on our EMS, which is waaaaay more difficult to keep up on instead of turbo system stuff.

Our question is, will there be enough demand to make back R&D costs?

did not mean 2 say you where not there for your customers, I,m sure you are. like i said the demand is always gonna be there especially with new people buying da IS3 and wanting more power. but the reality is that their are companies that still make turbos for the IS3, so you guys make another 1, big deal. the diffrence will be your interaction with the custumers and reliabilty of your kit. that in my honest opinion is what will set you apart. again in now way was my comment meant to be offensive. its just what i know in my own buisness dealings is the key factor as a buyer. But to answer your question plainly, Yes i deff believe their is still a demand for a great quality turbo.

Bleh, I understand keeping things tidy but you were just asking for interest not for someone to buy it from you. I am interested btw.

Would you guys be fabricating new exhaust manifolds? Tubular or log?

I was hoping to start piecing a kit together later this year but if the price is good this will be a great option.

If we where to give a go at it, it would be a tubular that was hand welded in house. No china stuff here.

Ohhh so your not going to buy an e-bay manifold and just chisel off the slag??? But its jsut such good business practice! (I KID!)

Looking forward to this. Once I get my cams/cam gear on... my only power option to get more would be boost.

That in my opinion is a HUGE plus. If you can manage to weld your own manifolds and still keep the price at or below the price of SRT's kit I don't see why people would buy anything else.
