    100% agree (on the under promising that is!)

    But yes, the parts look good, though the surface finish isn't fully done on the gear gate in that photo.

    Great stuff! Interesting to see they've gone for making the turret in 2 parts. I imagine it makes the casting a lot easier. (Below is a photo of an original item.) Can't see it being an issue provided everything is well aligned and nicely welded together- I assume that's why those parts are sitting on the welding table in the photos above!

    Just wanted to add some photos of my conversion underway. Looks to be winding down! Probably will get some good drives in before the endless winter begins. I knew SOMETHING good had to come of this crappy year....

    Great to see some positive progress and commentary and hopefully these pics serve to satiate some of the speculation about the validity of the operation. I received my conversion in early July and have been driving it quite a bit since. Performs flawlessly and, in my opinion, is much more engaging and fun that I ever had in the F1 drives. Art and team delivered a quality product for me.

    Has anyone received the conversion kit from art and done the conversion themselves? I plan to do this early next year and was wondering how involved it is.

    The most involved thing I have done on my f-430 is a full exhaust including headers, but I have done several engine swaps and pretty much anything in the import world, used to own a couple supras and s2000.

    How long have you been waiting for the parts? Approaching four weeks for me. Payed on the 18th of Aug.

    Not worried. Was hoping to convert before winter hibernation but that seems a bit tight now.

    How many conversions must one do to be trusted? EAG promised and delivered for me.

    I agree. Art seems very steadfast in redeeming himself. He is passionate and innovative. Lots of small businesses, especially in the car space, suffer on the business management side. ****, some of the most successful companies in the world suffer from that. I think what is important is that Art has recognized the need to improve that aspect and hes doing everything he can.

    Me too. Looks like the pricing has been taken off of the website, wonder why?

    I suppose if you, or anyone else, stole it from me I'd do something about it beyond cryptic posting to a forum. But since EAG quoted a price to me for parts and labor which I fully paid and for which they fully and satisfactorily delivered, I have no need.
