^ That's what we tried to stress to them at the meeting, but they haven't moved forward from the sounds of it. They have proprietary access to Ford's tuning, they can do more than SCT can. (Their tunes can change something like 10 times more data points.)

I stressed to them if they could be first to market with a tune for 91/93, and offer an intake and exhaust too, they'd be doing well. I just am not sure they are going to do it.

I pitched them this:

Stage 1 Performance: Intake/Tune
Stage 1+: Adds exhaust
Stage 2: Adds header, and re tune.
(If people are seing 175whp without a tune, if they could get 180-185whp with stage 2, I think it would sell.)

Stage 1 Suspension: Lower springs and better shocks.
Stage 2: Bigger sways

Then offer the body kit, both as a full kit, and as individual pieces.

I told them I think these parts would sell, especially since ppl could get the stuff installed at Roush Certified Ford dealers.
