there appears to be some interest....the only thing is that we need to either start up a group buy or have one person pay for the kit at a discount so we can test it on my car :D ....that person would then get the kit that was tested :D

how is interested in this group buy....or willing to front so we can start production??

if it will help i will try to get pictures of adeihl's kit...so people will know what they are getting!...obviously the pipes will be slightly different and a different turbo a t3 60/48 is instead of his t28....but he did the pipes and everything thimself....so you will be able to see what a quality job it actually is!

please let me know! by posting!!! :D

hey guys... i have lots of pics for ya, i will post them soon. they quality is unmatched. Is there anyone in the area that is willing to be the first owner of the kit? I would need to to visit stroudsburg on the weekends, you can stay at my place overnight if there is an issue.

Requirements, must have money up front as we are developing the kit. You will revieve your completed kit AT COST with no labor charges involved.

PM me if you are interested, and i will let you know what price range you are looking at.

Is it just me or does this not make any sense at all? You're trying to start a group buy on something not even developed yet? I assume it's just the piping that needs to be custom fabricated to the XD since Adeihl has everything else figured out, so why does someone has to put up the money up front for the whole kit?

I know you're not some major production company, but this is no way to do business. If you guys don't even have the funds to r&d the IC piping yourself, you probably shouldn't be in the business of selling turbo kits. At the very least why not use only1db's XD to do a test fit? You might have to put money up front but if only1db isn't going to buy it, I'm sure there's a willing member on exd.com that would easily snatch that kit if it was confirmed to fit and work on the xd perfectly.

Maybe I missed something in the previous posts about this kit but something about the way you're doing business is bugging me. It seems almost as shady as one of those NT group buys that goes sour.

so far, people in his area know him personally.. its not like he's a ghost out in thin air ....

they plan to work closely with the buyer of the kit too .. ( I think ) .. so this will all be 1-on-1 ...

I'm not saying they aren't reputable. I'm sure they have good intentions, but obviously they're trying to make some profit out of this in the end if they're looking into selling some kind of turbo kit. This went from Adeihl just trying to sell his own turbo kit to only1db getting involved and now it's some kind of collaboration. Somewhere along the line one of them decided, "hey we could probably make some money from this if we could custom fabricate the pipes."

I have no problem with someone making profit from this because if they put the time, money and effort into it, I'm willing to pay for their services. That's how the economy works. My problem is the fact that they don't even have the funds to produce a test kit. Why does someone need to fund their r&d just for them to make a profit? It's not like they don't have a test car. Obviously money is the issue here. If you don't even have a few hundred bucks to buy a bunch of pipes of various lengths and angles to cut down to size, why the hell would I trust you with a few thousand dollars of my money?

Look at how ARK performance and Mussa do their business. They don't come in here asking for money to fund their projects.

If someone buys it, they're getting a custom XD turbo kit for the price stated. Then, Adiehl and Only1db are reproducing that kit for any other member and it becomes "The XD Turbo Kit."

Nothing wrong with any of that, happens all the time. I think it's just your perspective on the situation. If anything, maybe that first buyer should get a bit of a discount.

I'm glad you guys are trying to help the community.

guys....what we are suggesting is that somebody back us...companies have backers all the time...thats how they work....

your right bending some pipes is not the issure...adeihl has the know how and knowledge and i HAVE seen and DRIVEN in his car...he made all the pipes himself...we have measurements and how everything will be routed...the only proble is that we have no money....if you want it thyen front the cash and it will get made...obviously i'm using my car as the test car...it will be dyno'd and fitted with my car...you have no idea how much i want the kit myself...but with a kid on the way and barely scrapping by myself...its just not going to work

i'm trying to help out the community...ther eare people out there that want the kit...obvioulsy we are looking at this from a money prospect...but its not that much...trust me...especially when we are willing to do installs for FREE!!!!!! try to get that somewhere else...not going to happen.

he has already done the test on his own car....but we have to make the pipes for my car...thats it....EVERYTHING is figured out!

why is everybody trying to be cynical?? we are not out for big money...we just want to see some turbo'd hyundais!! we are not some other fairly big companies (names will be excluded) that wont come through...with the cash in hand...we could easily turn this arond in atleast a month

there's a liklihood that he just hasnt gotten your message or had time to respond.

anyway, I should hope that an XD turbo kit wouldnt look like that crap that was posted by kewlkat
