    Hey Guys!

    I am happy to announce that after months of waiting our very own Type-R rolled into the shop yesterday!

    062817_NLT_CIVR_GEN_WEB_2.jpg

    We've been very eager to get under the hood of one of these, so much so that on Monday we had a loaner vehicle lined up so we could get a head start on he long list of projects for these, and it was all hands on deck.

    First up on the list for you guys is the development of a performance intake kit to help that K20 breathe better, and our intake guru, Ye has already been working on creating 3D models of the stock airbox and induction hose to determine our build envelope.

    I'll have updates for you guys as soon as possible, but until then feel free to ask any questions you might have, or let me know if you have any suggestions!

    -Nick

    Unfortunately it's a little too early in the game to have an accurate estimate on pricing, but I'll definitely be able to give you a better idea on that a little further down the line.
