The price of the kits is the same - only difference is the pulley.

You have to consider the amount of time that's gone it to R&D, the quality of the product (both hardware and software) and then the after sales support etc and warranty.

I think that's a fair price for an Evolve product.

I must apologise, I thought it was just a general question as to how much the charger kits cost across the board - I didn't realize it was a thread in the evolve specific section.

Martyn has been running it for a while now and the carbon inlet plenum seems to be holding up as expected. We are going to revise the design on the FMIC for less pressure drop and better IAT with a different core design.


Once that is done we can look at putting the kit into production.

£8k is cheap compAred to charging an E92 and you have the backup of a UK company.
