Hi guys, project remix was stolen in May 2006 and thus I kinda stopped paying attention to AKMEE a bit. I was just about to dyno and tune the Type-R profile on remix. Yes Type-S and R = Crower 2 and 3. And our plans was basically just to make an affordable options out there for the D series since these profiles are proven to be the best on the market currently. Then we will develop our own profile down the road. Our engineer's name is Luke Workman aka LiveForPhysics. He was really busy and finally finished school in the past summer. Now that he has a good paying main gig, he will have time to really tinker now. I've mentioned we are going prototype a new intake manifold and finally it should make some progress this winter. In any case, look for updates again.

We do have the killer package deal going on for the valve train kit so, show us your support then maybe we will follow through with the intake manifold. The tooling cost a lot of money and the tooling cost the same for us to cast a D series or a K series manifold. Which one should we do first?!

Bone, stop messing stirring things up. I care and do have a special place in my heart for SOHC VTEC. If you guys want to see cool stuff made, show us some love. I've often get the feeling that I am wasting my time wanting to do parts for D. Prove me wrong.

okay i emailed them and they a couple of weeks ago and only now they answer me. they are having a special for the whole valvetrain kit for $525 shipped. i believe thats to my p.o. box zip 96921 usings USPS Priority Mail Service. it could be lower because you're in the states. unfortunatly, i had already had purchased my crower Stage 2 a couple of days before they answered me e-mail. i spent about $560-$580 on the crower but i'm not disappointed. crower is a great company and i'd trust their shit over some company that doesnt respond to e-mails. IMO, get the crower. anyway, akmee is a copy of crower.

werd, jimmy waited 8 months for a response, i waited 3 weeks....

imo 2 days is too long when dealing with prospective customers, fuck akmee, just like the cartoons... cheap knock off's.....!

did you get some bull crap excuse about how they were on thanksgiving or something like that. just think about whats going to happen when you send them the money for your cams.(3 weeks later) "We just got back from the planet Mars and we need sometime to process the paper work so just wait another week or 4"

OVERLOOKED?! that is the worst excuse i've ever heard. except for the one i posted earlier. yeah, when a whole bunch of people want to buy your product, you tend to overlook the e-mails. even though more than half the customers are online. its okay, i dont blame them for not responding back because they probably dont have money for internet with all the products they are producing and not selling.
