Tired to follow the link provided in this thread to sign up again, said email was already registered.... I've received no additional emails.... What gives?

WOW, a whole $500.00 off. I'm impressed NOT. You have to come off the price a bit more for beta testing. Who in the right mind would do this?

Since this is the first off production who take responsibility is this screws up my 4runner? I know, I know I would save $500 bucks to be your guinea pig.

Sounds like a company that's hoping that people have deeper pockets than brains.

GIVE A REAL DISCOUNT!!!!

Shit not me. Rather spend that money on other mods. I'll dream about it I guess.

@THESS

Do you know once its officially released will everyone need to send their ECU to get programed or is that needed just for the pilot program?

For those disappointed in the price of the beta, don't do it. If no one does it, the price will come down. It will have to ... they have to have a beta cycle to get buyers. Simple.

This.

Less than 10% off to be a beta tester is laughable. Everyone posting about the lack of discount needs to remember the power of this forum and the amount of members here. Don't apply.

Just to confirm my math, this is a whoppin' 9 percent savings on price, right?

I'd really like to have one and will still "apply" just to see if I get picked. I, like all others, am not happy about the 5k. I was thinking about 4K for the beta and around 5-5500k for the actual. I do like how someone brought up about what happens if it destroys my engine. Id doubt they buy a new one for me.

Here's the text of the email:

Quote:
We're finally ready to take in applications for those who own 2010-Present Toyota 4Runners or 2010-2014 Toyota FJ Cruisers who are interested in being part of our pilot build program. Here's how it works:

-First, if you are on Facebook and/or Instagram, please make sure you are following us.
-Apply using the "APPLY NOW" button below. Review of the applications will take approximately 2 weeks depending on how many we get (which will be a lot). Please do not contact us at all about the application selection until we contact you.
-If selected you will receive an email from us sometime Sep 11-15th 2017. If you do not hear from us, please wait till the production kits are available for the masses.
-When selected you must be ready to purchase the blower at the discounted rate we are providing it for ($5000+shipping). We will have you call in to place your order. You will also be signing a pilot build/sponsorship agreement.
-Once you receive your supercharger kit, the FIRST thing you will need to do to help facilitate a quicker install is remove your ECU and mail it to us so that we can load in the calibration for the kit. The quicker you send it, the quicker we can get it back. You can even do this the moment you've paid for the kit instead of waiting till you receive it at your door.
-You or a local shop will install your kit and document any difficulties or suggestions you might have with the installation process and provide that written feedback to us. No whining, just professional feedback. Please do not custom calibrate or tune your vehicle on a dyno until after the pilot build phase is complete.
-Once the kit is installed and your newly programmed ECU is back in, please daily drive the vehicle, perform recreational activities with it if possible, and just flat out HAVE FUN with it. Photo/Video document your happiness with your new-found horsepower and torque and Photo/Video document any issues you might have with the kit after installation and use and provide back to us for review and support. If you need to bring the vehicle to us to have something looked at or checked, please do.
-If there are any issues with the vehicle due to the recently installed supercharger kit, please be ready for us to have your vehicle for as much time as needed to fix the issue to determine where the issue occurred and how to move forward with it. Please have another daily driver ready to go, we will not be covering rental car expenses.
-Once the pilot build testing phase is complete, please continue to enjoy your kit and show the world what they will be looking forward to expecting when the rest of the production units come to market this year!

Yeah no thanks. I was hyped up about it, but not for that price.
