IIRC, Robert (FAT) has started doing that only recently. It has to do with making more and more parts inhouse instead of outsourcing it. His kits cost has come down in terms of his cost, so he passes along the savings in terms of additing addition parts...

Believe me, when I got his second kit ever (Aaron's being the first) it only came with the Turbo and the pipes... I paid for EVERYTHING else seperately. Now that sucked.... But I've also now purchased from him a total of 4 times (1x with the SVX, 3x now with the RS).

That says a lot right there...

hehe. He just suffers from "2lb-itis"
"Just a little more boost!" :P

Hey, by the way... What piggy-back computer is it anyway? SAFC? SplitSec? What?

Is it cheaper to get the kit w/o intercooler and buy your own. Also are the prices on his site current or have they dropped, he wants like 2995 for stage 1, it also says that kit only gives you 5psi, whats the turbo's safe max psi.

I'm running 6psi right now on that turbo, and there is TONS of room left in it... You'll need a EMS solution, fuel rails and new gears (all done on my car) to make good power.... 11psi is what I'm shooting for.... Not during the summer here tho.... Damn AZ weather...

I'd get the IC... It's huge and will cost you less then getting one on the market based on the research I've done...

Too bad he didn't come up with one for the SVX.

Hey Kastle remember me?

Right now I finished the Tec II crank assembly for the SVX. Got Nismo fuel injectors and a new split fuel rail setup going in. Lots of machine work. I'm also doing a front mount intercooler with the new bumper project going on in the SVX forum. I'll let you know how it turns out.

Haven't done anything with my WRX yet. Waiting to finish the SVX. I will probably wait until the SVX motor is rebuilt.

When I am done I'll have to share the results with you. Good to hear the RS is working out for you.

Still have not gotten any maps on my turbo from Robert. Guess its a big ****ing secret. I wouldn't mind if I could control the boost better. I also need to get with him to get a new bracket. The guys who did my turbo lost the bracket.

I was refering to the intercooler. I have the turbo for the SVX. That is what I was refering too when I spoke of problems controlling boost.
