Bout to plan on piecing a turbo together then I guess. Kinda kills me that they wouldnít do one for us but thatís cool I guess. The guy I talked to seemed very uninterested as well.

Iíve seen others do it but you have to run a very low amount of boost with the stock internals. I wish I could find the link to the last guy that did it with 7 pounds of boost.

I find it very unlikely Sprintex would ever build for the Fit ever again.

The reason is, for the GE/2nd gen, they were supposedly sold out with pre-orders and people claiming they would definitely buy their limited initial release.

At the time, I hadnít ordered one for myself. I decided to try my luck and order one anyway... and got a kit immediately, as it turns out at the same time a bunch of people were dropping their pre-orders and reneging on their ďpromiseĒ to definitely buy one. I wonít say people were ďwrongĒ for now following through on their promise, but it was pretty funny to just how adamant some folks were about buying it (knowing price and specs beforehand), only to remain silent when the time came. Where as I bought it for the shits and giggles just because I had made a passing comment about being interested about.

So the shop I bought it from ended up with a surplus of kits. And Iím fairly certain other dealers also ended up the same. Then there was an update to the kit (I donít recall the specifics beyond the piggyback unit) and those showed up on Amazon. I wonder how many of those were first release units with the piggyback swapped as opposed to completely new kits.

Another thing is, when I needed to have my kit rebuilt after it blew a seal, the shop said they stopped carrying it due to defects in the design and that Sprintex wouldnít listen to them. In this case, I donít know if other shops are in similar situations or not.

Whatever the case is with the dealers now, from what Iíve mentioned, I would end up shying away as a manufacturer. If I canít make a profit by the second or third release and/or get good sales or feedback from the initial release, any motivation to continue down this path would dry up pretty quick.

Yea it really does suck how that works out sometimes. But all in all it does not shift me away from wanting to do forced induction. I see a lot of potential in the L15. Of course us Fit owners get shot down about anything for this car. I catch flack all the time about doing anything to my car but I donít pay it any attention. Iím not trying to make it a ďsportsĒ car, just a fun daily.

For you manual trannied guys, you do know you can purchase aftermarket camshafts for your Fit, from Deltacams right? It moved the powerband up further so the CVT folks couldn't take advantage of any power potential that was there. I had custom ones made from Deltacams. And posted up the specs. All the information was there. Heard nothing but crickets afterwards though. Why not go that route since it's available (Maybe not anymore now...I dunno).
