I recommend against it.

I believe it to be a small market with a 1 time purchase.

I am so up for it. I think you would yield great sales, as many GM cars have 3" throttle bodies, along with many other cars.

I believe if you guys can get a good deal on it, that you should just purchase 100' from your dealer, and sell that. When it finally all sells (if it does), then decide if the demand was great enough to continue to carry it.

I think 100' would be just enough to keep the few that need it, happy.

I see it this way:
That is one of the first upgrade a lot of us do to our cars. & when you say: "no we dont have it" to a first time costumer, you will probably loose him right there. So even if is not profitable, it might still be a good idea.

Not a bad idea at all. A group buy.

But make it a ready to install kit like the 97 kit. Just keep in mind the SSE'* and SSEi'* will need to go to the wrecker and get the half-size washer reservior without the headlamp washer section.

I'll help out with the canister relocate. From there, it'* cake. Easier than a CAI and heatshield.
