Thumbs up GROUP BUY: Billet thermostat housing

How do we start a group buy on these? They are gonna need funding to produce these parts.

I'm in for one for sure. Reply if you are in for one as well... lets get a count going!

We are hoping to have a better idea of pricing soon. But surely an idea of interest and readiness to buy are needed to know!

To help us get a good idea of market need/demand, please post up as if the cost wasn't a factor, that we can figure out about the product itself, not your choice due to pricing.

Good posting Matt!

well if money was no object and it wasnt some riced out color, yes i would buy one.

but that whole money thing is going to cause me to wait. if there were like, 9 out of 10 on the GB, i guess I would give in and be the 10th.

I'm with whitepony5.0, I want one but I don't want to pay something priced way over the cost of an oem unit. Given the popularity of this product, I can see HTP selling a lot of these so I would hope the price would be in the sub 100 range.
