Have you reached out to kpower? I actually paid for mine on the 2nd and started the car up on thanksgiving. I did however try paying for the kit within the first 5 minutes that it went live but was having issues (they lost my email), so maybe my order got bumped up to the first few. I did see about 10 people get their kits before me though.

I may be a special case for getting my kit even though I ordered on day two. My car was used to make sure the canbus was the same on the 2017+ and then with my order issue I may have got bumped up to when I actually tried to order (I called within the first 5 minutes trying to pay and the guy on the phone said they would email me the invoice, which never happened so I ended up just ordering through the website and later found out they forgot to get back to me.

Anything special with your order?

So what are the rules of the TR class again? I mean all this time stripping motors down and you don't upgrade pistons/rods? Believe it or not, a motor at high psi boost still has less stress on it at 6k rpms versus a high revving (8k) NA motor. Plus you want the reliability too.

Yeah long story short.
A shop ordered it for me, They ended up getting into some sort of argument because kpower realized they would make less money having 3rd party's order the swaps so they canceled their Dealer program after one order ..me lol
but it did get ordered. But other ppl who also ordered it at the exact same time already got their kit. funny how that works.

This class is designed for naturally aspirated vehicles using OEM equipped or swapped OEM engines 2.5 liters and under, and common modifications to popular trackday vehicles are largely permitted, in rules below. OEM forced induction vehicles of 1.6L and under are also allowed when using completely stock turbo systems.

● Forced induction cannot be swapped INTO any vehicle.

The new 1.5L turbo Honda motors will likely be popular swaps in the near future!

Another local to Nashville, seem to recall your user name on Tennspeed from back in the day?
