I wouldn't mind waiting a few more weeks

I am on the GB list already and wouldn't mione waiting a few more weeks especially if people are really interested in joining the GB. Can we get a list of names of people who still want to join the GB within the next few weeks? That way we know if it really is going to be 20+ people.

Infinitas:

Can you respond to this?

The SK+ will give us plus or minus 55hp on our 323's. Without an aftercooler or intercooler, we might only be making 30 or so on a hot summer day. I don't know where you are, but here in Louisville it can get 90's and 95% humidity.

Infinitas says that they will not offer an intercooler for the +, but are designing and aftercooler. Someone asked how much it would be, but they did not know as it is still in the design phase. I'm guessing, but I bet not much less than $1K or so??

So that would put us closer to 4.7K if we want the aftercooler later on (which I think I would). Now I'm about 1K less than I would be with a full AA kit, which includes and intercooler.

I assume, dont know for sure, that most of the testing on this kit was done in Germany, which has a cooler summer climate than here. Were their tests done in the summer, fall, winter, spring? It would be good to know. We have only seen one Dyno, and that was from a Z4.

I've made some assumptions here, and don't know how close to being correct I am. If anyone knows different, please speak up.

I'm also concerned about the noise with that huge intake sitting on top of the motor. I need to ask one of the guys (forget their names) in London about that.

So, these are the things I am questioning.

OK:
Just went back and looked at the Dyno provided by Infinitas from the Z4. Looks like it was done July 14, 04. The ambient temp looks like it was 19 C, which is 66 F. Pretty cool temp compared to how it gets here in the summer.

What the...

You opened this group buy from 11th Feb to 1st March. That's 18 days!!!

You didn't even give this a chance to get off the ground and for people to get money and sign up and bring numbers upto the lower price brackets!

What a sham!

Well if they *did* extend it, they never posted any notice of this on these forums.

The GB was closed on Sunday evening. However, we are still preparing everything with Infinitas, so it's possible to squeeze another kit on the shipment.

Most likely not. Since SULEV engines are different from the standard M52/54 and for the most part not available in Europe.
