Remember to schedule an appointment; CSG is primarily a R&D and shipping facility, and may not always have someone to show you around.

I'm not; I'm rarely at CSG. Contrary to popular belief, I'm not actually an employee, or financially compensated by CSG. I'm getting some more testing done on the CSG BRZ today, and will be on the dyno tomorrow with some other projects, and then heading up to Laguna Seca for the weekend (yay GT350 time).

Now, if you need data analysis done, or need some driver coaching/instruction, I can help you

Yes sir. This car SHOULD HAVE CAME FROM THE FACTORY with every mod known to man. Only problem is then it would have cost 100k and none would have bought it.

In the past, I feel like everyone always said if you are going to upgrade the exhaust and want to go FI, you had to go at least 3". I'm guessing the Edelbrock system is made to work with factory exhaust so I'm confused. I have a Perrin 2.5" resonated catback exhaust and I'm wondering if it will work with the Edelbrock system.

A catback, by itself, will not affect the preformance of any supercharger.

Go big or go home! @JoeC you should be going 5" or higher from the header back.

That's more applicable to turbos, which really like having a free-flowing exhaust.

I'm guessing maybe 30hp since CARB tune would be quite conservative?

Only one way to find out... you should be the first and tell us!

How would the warranty apply to cars outside of US? such as Canada.

Alternatively, you can find authorized dealers/installers such as @CounterSpace Garage to do the installation for you as well.
Kinda takes the fun factor out of installing it yourself but it is understandable in order for them to provide such a great warranty.

Will there be warranty and tunes available for headers and various pull sizes?

So am I reading the following correctly?

Quote:
Coverage Benefits:
Terms are 3 years (36 months) or 36,000 miles, whichever occurs first Time is measured from the vehicles original in-service date and the mileage is measured from zero (0) on the odometer
My car has 40k miles on it, so I would be ineligible for warranty coverage from Edelbrock, correct?

I mean, I would have wanted to save the $400-$1k and installed it myself anyway, but it's worth clarifying.
