Sounds Good, I'm in at that price and no problem waiting a month or so. When the time comes just tell me where to send the money.

Thanks for all your time and effort, good job !!!

Here'e the good news, he's thinking around $150-160 for the y-pipe and said he might be able to do something for a larger group of 8-10.


So, anyone who wants to wait, this looks like a good option!


I have it on my calendar to call Tom back the last week of September.

I relinquish my beer claim and re-direct all beer to the walking bear, who does truly deserve 'em!

I'm interested. However, before I commit, I'd like to know how shipping will work out, including cost. Epco's website currently lists the collector box at $169. For comparison, Keihan's website has theirs for around $205 (converted), while Bob's BMW has them for $289. All of those prices are without shipping.

All good points, my thought is that until every question is answered, I'm notsending a nickle anywhere...

Now, I will collect the number of interested parties and negotiate the deal with Epco, and report back unit cost and shipping, I'd like to get to qoutes for shipping all together and the preferred option of to each buyer. I think that having all us advr's tag our orders with a code word to get the(any) discount should work, and is my preferred option...

If anyone has the superior car salesman, purchasing skills and wants to spearhead the negotiation, chime in now, I'll do it, but wouldn't say I'm totally qualified... we must have some professionals out there who do this day in and day out, SPEAK UP!
