How can you not manage to put up a pic in 20 days? I'm in the market for a turbo kit, and FS is already taking deposits, I'm still going to hold off until at least F2 releases theirs too. How about some info on yours? Right now they are the only 2 i'm even considering. You were #1 on the list just a month ago....

Tom's a busy guy...its just him and his son running his operation, give the guy a break. I'm sure he has a lot of other things going on and posting a picture of his Duratec turbo kit on here is pretty low on his current list of priorities.

Not to mention, why are you California guys chomping at the bit about a turbo? No aftermarket turbo kit is ever going to be CARB certified, doesn't seem too practical to put one on your car unless its a trailered race-only vehicle...

Frogman,

I realize Tom is a busy guy, as do most others on this forum. And you may also notice that all inquiries have been and continue to be made in a friendly manner as to Tom's products (or lack thereof) for the Duratec.

Product is important in business, but so is marketing, customer relations, etc.. That is what is missing here, IMO.

And it is likely not because Tom doesn't care, but because the market is so weak for the Dura and Focus platform in general, that he simply cannot invest the time or money into the marketing, advertising, promotional, customer relation, etc., sides of business at the moment.

So, we will have to wait patiently untill he can get around to posting a pic or two on this forum or maybe some day finally updating his website to show some actual Duratec stuff.

Such is the price we have to pay for being brand "X" enthusiasts.

hmm, who said the market is weak? the market is still in its infancy for the duratec... I know that all the FS Turbo kits sold out for their first batch... I am sure Tom would have the same luck with his... :D

well tom doesnt have time to come on here and update us about the duratec stuff, but he has the time to come in here and bash f2, marcy, and fs for not showing up to some track event. in my book that is bad business. you dont bash other companies like that. sorry tom i think that is kind of childish. i know i wont here the end of this but i dont care.

no i not bashing i jsut saying its bad business. and i may not have posted int his thread, but i do check back often for uppdates, which seem to have none. the only kits i have seen out are the f2 kit and the fs kit. i was waiting for tom to release a kit because as i have read he has done some damn good work with the zetec and can probably be better with the duratec.
