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.
This is an awesome idea if they would follow through, especially since SCT is (intentionally?) dragging their feet so bad with the NA version.

SCT got hit up pretty bad on their fb page for not following through fast enough with the NA. They claim that there are 30 different codes and that they have only done one. After the vehicle having been out for over a year-and-a-half...

I understand the political side, but someone somewhere needs to just do something.
