Yes, you're right...I see your point. The hotshot is really a nice kit. I just have to do more research for the b13 ecu. I'm sure jwt can reprogram one. Keep up the good work!

The Hotshot kit is a pretty good deal, not the best but hey look at it this way, who else out there is making another kit for the GA16DE??? It's hard pressed to find...

SUPPOSEDLY (pause pause)... The manifold I'm waiting on is getting ceramic coated now... they said next week... BLEH... I hate waiting...:p

Now I agree you do need to upgrade the clutch... a must.. well, actually that would depend on how much you want to get on it and how much you plan on boosting.. We actaully drove quite a while on the stock clutch... with some slippage...but the clutch had almost 60,000 on it already! The LSD is a good addition, but not nessesary!
haha...i still have my 80,000 miles stock clutch too. just not enough time to put the new setup in yet:( thats mainly why i havent dynoed yet. i will soon though. i really wanna see the difference in hp/trq #s "log" and "pulse converter" manis make. should be interesting.

Now I am turly confused... now you are going to continue and dyno it? I was under the impression you had pulled everything to sell it...

You don't have to call JWT, you definitely need an SE-R ECU, but I don't think the year matters as long as you match manual/auto and weather or not you have a california emissions car. You can probably get the used ECU for under $100 easy, just search the internet for car parts. After that it's just a matter of coming up with nearly $600 (for the basics, ~$840 with the VTC or whatever that was for the cam timing), and from what I hear now, wait 6 month for them to get to yours.

Thanks for the info! I remember talking to Ben from jwt a while back..he also said the wait would be long. I couldn't find a se-r ecu back then..I'll try looking again. Does jwt use that same program for the turbo? TIA

I'll try and find that magazine at Barnes & Noble again tonight if I go -- but ne way -- I'm not saying it's not a good deal (heck if I had the crash or could even scrap it up -- I'd be the first one in line). At any rate -- One day maybe I'll save enuf to get the hotshot kit + ecu!! ahh, a man can dream ;).. Later!

I can garuntee you either read it wrong or saw it in NPM... We are the only ones with a Hotshot turbo in a GA16....period.....at least for the moment. Seeing that we are doing all the testing, no one else will have one until we are completed...

haha if you do find it I want to know.. it would be major copyright infringment...lol

The only other Ga16 in any publication is Sweet 16 written by Mike Kojima in SCC... , believe me I know that car very very well... It's without a doubt the fastest N/A Ga16 out there...
