Just read the entire 'header theory' thread plus this thread . Great job in putting a quality product into production Charles ! Must have been a huge effort and now ,looking back, I can understand your frustrations when people aren't entirely supportive of those efforts.

Looks like the ad from several days ago was deleted, but it had a ton of parts listed and I didn’t see it indicated as sold. So I pm’d you the info to ask about it.

I'm facing a rebuild, but if I can manage it at the same time, I might.

The pan on the S2 has to be modified to install the Greddy turbo manifold for the S1 but the Greddy manifold drops down a bit.
Can anyone confirm the speculation with the fitting issue from the oil pan for the S2? Charles, do you have any comments on this?

I am interested in the used LTH as well, but just not sure if it will fit an S2 or not?

Hey Charles!

Thank you so much for giving your two cents! What improvements will those who have the S2 see from the modification? Better clearance I suspect?

Maybe I should rephrase the question : does the new modifications justify, and worth, the extra wait for those who own an S2?
