Tom, tried sending you a pm but it won't allow me.

Here is the message:
I bought a set of kartboy endlinks and I was missing one of the thicker spacers. Was wondering if you guys sell those. I only saw the thinner ones for the front on your site.

Tom, you need to elaborate on the tuning a little please. Is there hp to be found over the stock tune? I have one on deposit. Wondering if a cold air intake added and a tune is yielding better than stock numbers.

Tom, my car is a clone of yours, except mine came with that stupid chrome strip on the fender.

I really like that barcode plaque on the manifold! I'd rock one in a heartbeat. Will those be getting produced soon or you still playing with ideas?

Also, have you verified that front endlinks will swap? I have a set from my STi. And should be getting my KB battery tie-down back any day so I can represent. Come to think of it, I wore my KB shirt to the dealer...

Nice! what dealer did you get it from?

The rear links from the newer chassis 08+ will fit. the fronts are different (roughly 14" long!)

oil cap, battery tie down and 6 speed knobs all fit outta the box.

i might make a few of the cover plates. most likely it wont be a full on production part. but who knows.

I have a few other goodies i hope to have avail in the near future. Testing has been going quite well so far.

^Sweet! I got mine at Bob Baker in Carlsbad. It was the only one available and I'm pretty sure the only reason I got it was my STi. They wanted that trade-in.

I never did get the 08+ rear endlinks, but the bar I have is 22mm. I'll have to test that out, might be too much bar for the stock tires.

I'd love to purchase one of those plates that you end up not using.

22mm rear bar will be way too much for the car. I'm running a stock FXT rear 16mm and its perfect. OEM is 14mm

Heck you can have the other one i did. i can paint the center black like i did on mine.

Do you think the tuning is way off on your pull? I looked at another dyno pull in another post in this BRZ forum and it pulled around 178. 137.7 would seem to be a good bit low.

Its pretty spot on for a DD dyno AKA the heartbreaker. They did a FRS and got almost identical numbers.

That's kind of disheartening. The dealer where I looked at the BRZ today also sells Fords and you can get the V-6 Mustang with 305 HP for about the same price. Does the dual drum suck that much measurable HP off the chart than a single drum?

Dyno numbers are pretty irrelevant when trying to compare to other brands of dynos IMHO. What really matters is what baseline numbers are, and how you improve over those numbers on the same dyno.

What is the usual percentage of HP drop between crank and rear wheels? I know there are many factors that influence that, but overall what is the percentage of drop? 10%, 15% 20%? It just seems to me that a 62+ HP drop is not what I would expect. $25-$30 grand car for 137 horsepower? I think I will have to rethink purchasing this car.

You can always add horsepower.
You can't always add a low center of gravity and a balanced chassis. (not to mention how much better that is to start with)

For crying out loud, the V6 Mustang is a great performance bargain but it's not even in the same galaxy as the FR-S/BRZ.
