lol, i had no idea!

I didn't know you were in the market i swear. I do think i was one of the first couple people to see the for sale thread though. I beamed it right over to Dondo so i'm not sure who saw it first.

I'm going to start shopping around this upcoming winter so knowing my luck you'll snag one out from underneath me!

the level sensor is here now too. just waiting on the reservoir. did you look into wiring it up yet? i need to get on that if you haven't yet. and i think you were the first to port the idea to the RX8 so you still deserve the credit.

did you trunk mount the w/m system?
There are a LOT of "little" things you can do.
things like rerouting the heater hose under the subframe so the firewall is not as crowded, running the a/w intercooler feeding and return hoses in a different manner, mounting the a/w coolers off the front support bar (true vertical mount increasing air flow, upsizing the a/w storage tank etc.
when you track take just a little sc oil out. So that the dipstick reads maybe a fingernail thickness below the full mark and use gear oil not motor oil. Change it after tracking.
let me know if i can help!
welcome to the brotherhood.
now you would like to have better motor mounts and a 09 trans!--it never ends

AHHH! Ive been wanting the pettit kit since before it was even out, hell before I even had my car. Dondo, I hope to see your ride when its all said and done. I have a lot of little questions about it, and as far as I know there arent any other pettit supercharger owners in the NW.

Thanks OD, I read most of your work already and know you've done a ton of work and lots of 'little' things too. I'll be in touch after the install I'm sure..
