Hey! I am good, when are you coming to MTL?

I did some more digging for info and it looks like I can use a regular wastegate actuator, so that means I can easily get the parts here. Thanks anyways, I will keep you posted when I start my very own VGT project...

Done Rob!

Okay everyone who is ready to buy... Could you send me an E MAIL keith@rovertracks.com
put "300 TDi EVO" in the subject line.

I looks as if there are enough people (both here and other places) interested/ready that we should get this order started.

So, what's the bottom line on this deal? If we don't get on board this time will it be available later? Same price?

Hey Art,

Getting the numbers up helps with the price, we can probably get another buy going in the future. I'm not even included in this buy as I can't afford it currently. But I'll likely need two kits in the coming months that will put us a coulpe away from 5 kits if you go in. (5 is a magic number.)

I hear ya...I've been waffling on purchasing a "real" car for the last month and was looking into a BMW 1991 M5. Then I realized that the last thing I need is a money pit just to feel good driving fast.

My Rovers have been essentially trouble free. Although I'd love for the 110 to be peppier with this kit, in the end I want an automatic in it. So, now I'm thinking moving the Tdi/R380 into the 90 and the ZF into the 110 - not with the 4.0. Think Chevy.

Assuming the 90 is much lighter than the 110, I'm hoping not to need the 2.8 turbo kit in it. It will also allow me to avoid MA emissions testing on the 90.

Art.....

I had a 1991 BMW M5:

fun, fast, and a definite money pit. Head gasket job - $4,000.

With the exchange rate at $1.59 to pound, now may be the best time to buy. I suspect with the US monetary policies, the dollar will only get weaker against other currencies.

Okay, I've put out the call for cash. $2025 get's a kit shipped to you door (added benefit of a better exchange rate and a 5% discout for more kit's sold.)

Any new takers? I'll be placing the order early next week (once I get all the cash).

Oh you should do the 300 with this kit!

I've mailed off updates to the guys that got in on this purchase but I figured I post here as well.
(start form letter here)
I have wired the $$ today and the kits will ship next week. That should put them here the week of 4/1.
Once I get them I'll turn them as quickly as I can.
Hopefully the following weekend I can get mine installed so that I can check any unforseen problems.
We have installed on kit in Italy and it went well. Michele is thrilled (he want's to go race Ferarri's now). There are some points he noted during his install and I will write these up and either post them on D-90 or include the notes with the kits. Or do both.
(stop Form letter)

Yipee!!! I'm Excited!

Two kits in Italy!
Well I only did mine 1 month ago and I took a couple of notes I will pass over as bonus.
I tuned the VE pump last weekend and the Cube flies.
The first kit (supposed to be mine) was installed last summer on a mate's D90, another white 300 Tdi
This Guinea pig had the VE tweaked on "evil" mode...

dang I want one of these... I think I need to do the underdrive first though so I'm at least a year out of being able to afford it... I'm _REALLY_ hoping there will be another buy around that time...
