Why? Do you even know what the "Custom" refers to?

PS the 12k is AUD...thats like $5USD at the moment.

I'm assuming it means that they modify it to work with the rx8 , but working with the 8 and working well are two different things .

Custom + Microtech = Interceptor X

I personally might not pass, but at least I know what to expect.

Usually words like Custom are B.S. Microtech could make it for me themselves.

And I'd go with Esmeril.

Is the Esmeril kit available for the Series II?

I would not consider this Promaz kit without knowing a hell of a lot more about them.

You either think the AUD is that weak or the USD is much stronger than it is.

Esmeril "Kit" no. But its a top mount setup, so it should bolt up with little or no adjustment. The Interceptor that is used to tune it was just a Modified Microtech anyway, and I was always pretty sure that another modified Microtech unit could be used again. Now thats been confirmed.

Unless Promaz is B.S. which is still likely.

Yeah definitely a little vague on the setup. No specs on the turbo, wastegate, lack of pics of the manifold is kinda weird. Do they use stock plugs? Any water/meth injection? Seems like it would push the limits of reliability. I wonder how many warranty claims they have to satisfy...
