Must be the poor economy, and the fact that the first person is the Guinea pig, once the feedback is positive then the sales will begin to roll.

Everyone wants a proven system and not to have to $%^&## around with the install.

The price is right for the buyer, but it's a very good deal for the seller too, as they assume no risk only not making money on the first unit.
Come on someone, be brave enough to commit, who has the money but is afraid to be the first?

How can you be afraid of accepting the deal they are offering? Think about it. If you are actually the guy to sign the contract to make videos, testimony, and show up at car meets, PE is going to take very well care of you. They will probably provide better service to this person than any other person who buys the kit after. They need to make the first buyer love the kit and have others jump on board. If i lived in the area, I would be all over this. There is no risk at all being the first to get this.

I'm waiting for my tax return.

Although even then I cannot make the 6 hour drive to PE or trust myself to do the installation in the way the PE intends.

Probably not, we are a manufacture, we do not have a retail store front.

We can arrange to have it installed at one of our dealers.

I may offer to install it at my discretion and time.

You can give me your tax return and I'll drive another 8 hours (that's how long it took me to get to Simi Valley) to buy and install it on my car I kid, I kid.

However, I do agree that it's the economy and the fact that we just had some holidays pass, plus Valentine's day coming up, that's drained the money out of us. Evan, give it another month, after tax returns and a chance for people to recover their financial "loss", then you'll be golden

I disagree. Even proven items in a good economy, if high-ticket, sell very slowly. Trust me, I know.

I agree. There are not many that want to spend 20-25% of the total cost of the car on a single upgrade, in any market.

Oh, I want to, I'm just not in California.

And Evan, very nice approach this time. I wish you the best of luck here.

If it's like the Blitz, it's between 7 and 15 hours, that's the range people have reported.

I'd say go for it, the only hard part would honestly be the wiring and it is just time consuming not extremely difficult.... The mechanical part looks to hook up very easily...

My boss quotes approx 4 hours with knowledgeable hands.....then again he used to be a professional engine builder....

but i suppose anyone else with similar knowledge should be in the same boat!
