    Really, which parts?
    And how much information do you have on the Elio motor? Just wondering what your experience is on working with a brand new engine design and the equipment for testing it to see how much of a boost your performance products add.

    All of our performance parts are designed/engineered in CAD then we 3D print the parts to fit make changes. Once thats done a prototype is made and installed and tested on our chassis dyno. Working/making parts for new engines is actually pretty simple. A engine is a engine and they all function the same just find the flaws and make the part we want to make better then the factory part.

    So in other words you don't know anything about the IAV motor that was designed and built as a joint project with Paul Elio and his Engineering firm.
    And you said in a different thread that you had built the 4th wheel kit for the Slingshot, is this part of the shop that you're involved in?
    What's your role in that company?

    IF/WHEN ELIO does start making the production goals, you may need a bigger garage.
    I look forward to seeing a whole display devoted to ELIO accessories at my local Pep Boys.
