New vendor introduction
 
Hi guys, Iím Jeff from Racer X Fabrication and I just wanted to post an intro thread so you know who we are and what we do. Racer X Fabrication was created in 2009, we started with the Toyota MR2 and have been slowly adding platforms over the years. Our lastest addition is a 2014 Sonic RS, we had been shopping for newer model platform for a few months and we thought the Sonic was a good fit. We love working on 4 cylinder turbo engines and it looks like a fun little platform. We received our Sonic today, and we will begin development on several parts shortly. We are also open to component suggestions, some of our best products start as an enthusist's suggestion. Here are a few pictures of our work, I look forward to working with the community and getting to know everyone.

Forged internals and exhaust manifold kits please?

If you produce a turbo manifold with a t3 or t4 mount you'll completely light a bonfire for the platform development....

It's the biggest hold back for power on the 1.4 platform

This guy gets it. A number of people here would definitely love a larger turbo kit. Donít forget those forged internals though. I think the rods are already forged but could be better so those too please.

Other vendors already make nearly everything else we could ask for

Count me in for a T3/T4 manifold.

Intake manifold has been popular in conversation, but very limited market for those.

It'll be necessary if a new exhaust manifold makes bigger turbos easy to bolt up.

And a better fuel rail set up...

We have been collecting data on several components for design currently. One of which is the intake manifold, we are running CFD analysis on it now and prototyping flanges.
