Some of you who have been part of this forum as far back as 2003(when we joined as a vendor) know exactly who we are, others might know the name by various other threads/members. However until today, it’s been almost 2 years (2 years this February) since we posted or have been active on the forum. The crazy part is, as an advertiser we never really left, we continued to be a paid advertiser, and we've continued to develop and refine the products we make for your Subaru(and for some BMW now). So why did we dissappear?
The short answer is bandwidth...or lack of it. Daddy's/MadDad has always been a small family business and I've always had the brunt of the work and literally just could not keep up, so something had to give and it was the time spent on Nasioc. The lousy part which is somewhat embarrassing at this point is how we just disappeared from the forum yet we were still active in some other avenues. Some of that diverted time was needed to expose/build the brand in the BMW community. That meant a lot of time in the BMW 1 Series forum where we introduced several parts for the BMW 135i.(where the Whisper rules as the no drone king). However....our roots and primary focus is still Subaru and we no longer need to tell the BMW folks who we are..they know now.
In the time we've been "gone" we introduced the GR STi Whisper Catback, which has seen 2 revisions and being reintroduced next month in a totally re-engineered model that will reset the bar for a quiet 3" catback. You California folks will flip over it.
We introduced the first GR series Boost gauge with a white needle. Last month we introduced the matching oil pressure and egt with the white needle.
Next week you'll see the new GR STi Street Series turboback, in development for the past year and quite possibly the best looking catback available, along with a new GR series 200cpi metal substrate downpipe.
The significance of this downpipe is the 200cpi cat. Most of the metal substrate downpipes today, include our own GR V2 series use 300cpi cats. So the this new GR catted bellmouth will be a great choice for you folks running very high HP applications where the highest flowing but high quality(metal substrate) cat is needed.
Moving into 2011, January will see a long awaited GR WRX Hatch Whisper axleback/catback
Q1 of 2011 will see development of the very long awaited GR Sedan Whisper catback.
The point is we've never stopped our Subaru commitment/development. Our Facebook page has photos and updates on all these products, be sure to "friend" us to get all the updates.
One thing moving forward that will change is our PM box. In the past it was just too difficult to follow a thread of conversation via a string of PM's so moving forward the PM box is closed, so just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
. You'll be seeing us on a weekly basis from today on. Catch you in the forums......
