:D that is the new website...in fact the site is not fully working yet...when the address was being linked to the sites for a switch over in a week it linked to the new site and not the old...so as you can see the website is kind of a mess.

I'll get in touch with Matt the owner later today (want to thank him for his super safe packaging for the exhaust :D) and see what he has...hopefully the website will be fixed up or atleast a message on the site saying what is going on...oh I'll check on gold pricing too.

WELL, ordered my turbo from Matt already hehehe it'll be here in 3 days.
Matt was kind enough to pay the extra cost for the 3 day mail. If all goes well, you'll all see it at the Meet on the 27th

that is awesome Speedrx8er! :D

just so you know the meet is on the 22nd :p that is no problem though...I'll stop by and see it anyway (if it is complete before the 27th as I'm going to South Africa for 3 weeks).

Just last night I got the Hymee Exhaust installed I got from Matt (he is the only seller of the product in the US). I love it...wonder what is sounds like with FI? I'm looking into Hymee's twin-screw supercharger later this year (it isn't complete yet).

Keep us updated...maybe I can stop by and see the progress! :D

I'm curious, once you put in the turbo... how does the ECU react to it?

Or are there some electronics that go w/ the turbo to help program the ECU to the boost?

(switching topics slight).. What is the deal w/ all of the little high school kids in their hondas with tin-can mufflers that pull up next to me... rev their engine like it's going to explode? Then they rev/drop the clutch and squeel their tires and slowly drive away when the light turns green.. Hell the 8 can out accelerate these morons, but I'm not stupid enough to street race at 3:30 in the afternoon!
(Hell I'm not stupid enough to street race at all..)

WTF, are they they stupid? (This has happened to me 3 different times on Old Shakopee and Portland in Bloomington..)
(...ok back on to topic...)

The Greddy Turbo which Speedrx8er is installing comes with the Greddy Emanage unit and plugs into the stock ECU wiring harness, this allows an overide/control of many sensor inputs and allows the turbo to work with the ECU's complex environment.

The E-manage unit also manages the turbo...and with additional components boost can be controlled with the unit and a Greddy emanage software for tuning.

As for the kids and their revving...with the Hymee installed it is tempting to give them a nice concert but I ignore them...although once Speedrx8er is setup his car will be a sleeper powerhouse and sure will suprise a 350z or Mustang owner off the line (on a track of course :p)

I'll try to take lots of pic.

HONDAS + racing strips + BIG Wing + loud farting pipes!!!!!!!!!! Tell me about it I live in St. Paul. Tons of hmmmm whats the word I am looking for? oh Yah RICE Boys ( guess it ok for me to say it since I am asian ehhhehe :D ).

I get a few of them Rev their engine at me Most of the time I just ignore them. But sometime I just can't help it lol best ever was when one pull up and rev his engine with his girl setting next to him. OH boy was that fun!!!!! Left him in the dusk. Then slow down so he can catch up and as he pass me. I just Smile


How is that Hyme work out for you?

Yes, I am keeping mine as a sleeper. Athough I never had any problems with the Z or the mustang group.

I don't know if I'll ever go to the track. Because I am saving up for parts.
But I'll love to try those twisted curve tracks.

Anyways, how many do we have for the 22nd meet? Hope it'll be a nice bright sunny day

of the 15 on the list only 1 has declined and 5 are a definite go...the 22nd is a much better date then the one I originally picked :o

Anytime I see an 8 on the road I track them done and tell them about the meet and exchange emails when I can

The Hymee is great! you'll see/hear it on thursday...lets just say it is a serious exhaust :D

Nice.

WOW track them down huh? Going to have to invite you a spiderman tracker. :D

Hmm wonder how the turbo will react with a hymee exhaust. Do you know if Hymee is using it with his supercharger setup?
