Hello all,

Just for clarity the $208 price delivered is based on paypal 'gift', if not paying by 'gift' it will be required to cover the fees imposed by paypal (5% i believe).

I have given the gift option as a way of keeping costs down for any purchasers.

Hope this clears up any potential confusion, im sure once the feedback starts coming back people will not see using 'gift' as a problem.

Thanks for the continued interest and orders already recieved.

I might be the odd-duck here... but doesn't that seem wrong to anyone other than me? I mean, isn't this how Paypal is making their money? And if we are using their service because it is so convenient, shouldn't they be allowed to make a couple bucks?
I'm just sayin', that for the extra $10 or so, I'd rather be honest about it, and let the service make its money, instead of looking for a way around it.

? Huh! I didn;t know that! Sorry... I wasn't trying to stir s**t..... It was an odd day... full of people who tell me I'm ripping them off because I want to make PROFIT in my business, over and above costs and overhead.

so I was overly sensitive to the scenario.
Glad you straightened me out!

There is another reason to make it a regular payment. A Paypal "gift" payment does not cover the buyer if the goods never arrive ... for whatever reason. No refund because it was not for physical goods. It is also a technical violation of the seller's Paypal terms of service.

When using Paypal to pay for goods, if the seller does not have a website with a Paypal button, then have the seller send a Paypal invoice that describes the goods being purchased completely.

Given the fact that a "gift" sender would have to pay a fee anyways, it does not make sense to use a payment classified as "gift".

In the event that a "gift" is disputed, Paypal will close the dispute unless the payer can establish that the money went to the wrong account. Otherwise, it is a "gift" and as in all "gifts", nothing is expected in return.

I was under the impression that a 'gift' payment did not attract a fee from the seller or buyers perspective hence why on earlier posts i stated ' a way to reduce costs to the buyer'.

However in the light of this new information can all purchasers from this moment on use regular payment at the fee inclusive price of $220 that way the buyers are fully covered and it covers the fees.

Hopefully that will keep everyone happy.

Best Regards.

You'll definitely notice quicker throttle response and power.

Looking forward to the update jsupstarz. vroom vroom.

Oh and +1 on regular PayPal. A few extra $, , € ensures peace of mind if the item does not arrive. Ships sink, aircraft go down......

This looks to be a quality product and should be worth the small extra for secure delivery.

Just to keep everyone in the loop i will be doing the next batch of stage 1s ready for dispatch in the new year, this is to avoid any possibility of them getting lost in the seasonal post (advised by the post office).

Stage 2 still ongoing anticipated completetion on the test unit is February.

I will be posting fitting instructions on this thread soon to avoid any possible confusion when fitting the stage 1 units to the cars.

Any update here guys? I am waiting on mine to arrive next month (Waiting on the holiday shipping to subside to lower risk of package loss) but am curious to see what those of you that had already received yours had to say...

How does it look, how does it sound and can you feel the difference in throttle response?

So many questions, so much excitement as I count down the days until my kit arrives!!!

Most of us run the Mafioso unit and have collectively enjoyed the increase in; throttle response, nearly 15 chp punch, and of course...the whine. Trust us, you'll love it.
