Not that I know of, but could be? The internet has a really long memory sometimes... the way I see it is they've got their nuts hanging pretty far out on this one, with the offer of a free kit, numerous threads, and a deal lasting through the end of October. If there are fit/delivery issues, I suspect they will be popping up in no time.

They did with their 80 series kit back when but I haven't followed it in a long time...Didn't Treeroot get a EMS kit? I thought somebody had. I think I need from the header back on the LX

Tim have you done anything on this yet? I just ordered my DT headers, 2-3 weeks out from being able to ship.

Nope. How about let's shoot for the week of 10/22 to get something ordered? And do you know how much the mid-section is? Would be sweet to do the full setup, from headers back.

Anyone see a real advantage?
Romer, Dyno results are in.. looking close to a 10% increase in horsepower, and about a 15% increase in torque. Holy cow.. and that was without headers.

let me see how Rob responds. I was trying to compare these with the DT header graphs and couldnt tie them. I asked the question and the response was the DT header charts look "shady". I might go with you on this
