Nice! Do they give discounts to people who really want it, but have no money?

Sure! I'd be more than happy to install it and run it around and give them feedback. I just can't leave Texas.

Thats GREAT!! Alpine makes a Quality SC! I ran one on my 2000 for 90,000+ miles with NO problems other than tires going up in smoke.

You MAY be able to work a deal on it from them in exchange for your testing and input. I worked a deal out with them when the developed the SC for the earlier 2.7. Me, Nuke, and another guy on TTORA each had a different type. Nuke's involved useing a spacer in the head to de compress the engine a bit, but allowed much higher boost. He was putting down 200 h.p. iirc. Mine was a 6. psi unit, and I did my own fuel mod, and was putting down 168, with headers and exuast. My truck was a little weak from the factory, and Im sure that with more tweaking, I could have put down more, but I was quite satisfied with my performance.

That is great news. How much does your mileage suffer (under normal driving, no heavy footing)?
