Jetfire People, Please Look

I assume most Jetfire people are on the Jetfire forum but here it is anyway. I have been talking to Ken and he has made a business contact that can make our much needed foot flange gaskets. He has passed this information on to me and I am planning to have some made. The tooling is the expensive part and has to be factored into the price of each gasket. To help fund it I wanted to see if anyone wanted to pre-order any. No money needed up front, just like to get a commitment of selling any I can before getting them made. The pre-order will be a lower price than if you wait. The pre-order price will be $130 each and shipping. If you wait till after they are made it will be $150 and shipping. If you commit to buy one and later donít want it I would later have to get the full after order price.

I am only having 20 of them made so if you would like to get one for a backup to your current working system, then now is the time to buy it. I have an NOS one that I am sending them so it will be made from a perfect original. I will be installing one on one of my cars to assure it is a proper correct part before sending any of them out or taking any money.

Please understand, for the amount of money I will invest into these and the amount of time it will take to sell them, I am not really making anything at the price. It is just a much needed part and donít want to miss the opportunity of having them made for at least a reasonable price.

Let me know your thought and if you would like to have any set aside.

It is the seal between the turbo and intake manifold. They are often dried out and cracked. I have 10 extra turbo systems and only 1 has a good usable foot flange gasket. My first Jetfire had a bad one and took a couple months to find another and had to buy an entire turbo setup to get it.
