    Anyone thinking of doing a Maxogen group buy.............surely this must go side by side the Orbisoud group buy?

    i'd be game but it's not on my project list until the new year..... as the orb may cost 600+, the maxogen on top of that would be at leadt another 200... a lot to shell out this side of xmas with the kid on its way... :worried:

    In the same boat as cue really, was not planning on doing anything else until next year BUT if the price was right I'd be pretty interested.

    What about the BMC CDA, can be had with the new Samco induction elbow for £210 delivered.

    IMHO just as good as the Maxogen.

    I payed around £400 iirc. That was 16 months ago though.
    Definate advantage to be had. When I first had it installed I didn't notice any difference in sound :? but the most difference I've noticed in performance from any one mod apart from the cams.

    Orbisoud, ITG filter + re-map - tinyest gain in torque, plenty gains in exhaust sound. :smiley:
    Maxogen - Good gains in performance, no gains in sound (at first).
    Re-worked inlets + re-map - again tinyest gain in torque.
    Cams + re-map - Biggest gains in performance, angrier engine note.

    Since having the cams and inlets I can hear the Maxogen much more. :?

    Hmmm interesting shall ponder BMC over next day or so. Red Samco looks cool.

    Manifold plus re-,ap saw my greatest gain.

    Cheapest I have seen is K Tec when you combine the cliosport forum discount of 5% comes to £367.25. But then P&P is an extra £10.00. :worried:

    Anyone know of somewhere cheaper?

    itg doesnt give large discounts on the maxogen as it costs them alot to make, so you wont be able to find large discounts on them unless you can generate a huge group buy and possibly go direct to the dealer or main distributor.

    Normal dealers get about £50 off retail, so unless 10's are being sold them most people wont bother with the hassle as profits vs hrs spent on it will be pointless.

    I can't see how the BMC would be as good as the ITG, ie u have to have the stupid air feed attached with the most awkward kink, cant be good for airflow :confused:

    Doh :roll: , yes you should. Think you have to be careful buying off ebay etc as i think fittings are all different (i think, if someone can confirm)

    Has anyone contacted Ktec to see if they could beat this price if we managed to get a group buy of ten together?

    Edit* Infact I'll contact them myself this afternoon and feedback.
