    i know, but whenever i get an "auto reply update email" and i haven't replied in some way i always get confused as to why i'm getting the email unless i've typed something in, that is until i remember that i just subscribed to it, this also keeps it at the top too.

    Wow, I just noticed the price increase. In November the polished kit was $1,895.00 and they were advertising that the die cast version would likely come in around $100.00 less. The die cast one is listed at $2.195.00 now. Plus you need to purchase their returnless line fuel system is another $300.00.

    Bummer,
    Tim

    I'm interested in this product, first thought was why they don't offer something in between the 750 and the 1250. Also I think the price is a bit high, getting close to the price of the (better IMO) Weber-style 8 barrel injection kits. Port injection is much better than TB injection. Then again you don't get to keep the stock air-cleaner for the stealth look like you can with these. But if looks are your thing NOTHING beats 8 @ 1V stacks.

    Oh...subscribing :D

    I inquired about the increase as well, all of the 750cfm kits now include the returnless fuel system w/pump.

    I'll get it running as soon as possible cause I can't hardly wait either.

    I called FAST about this system and it won't be out until late summer. It also doesn't have a provision for timing control like the retrotek version, it is fuel only. FAST has a great reputation in the efi world though, so it won't be as much as an unknown at the retrotek unit. The retrotek version also looks sexy.
