Should be about the same as before. Roughly $3k neighborhood, or maybe a bit less.

After we've received the order of 100 heads, the price will drop.

EDIT: Don't want to speculate how much.

After we've received the order of 100 heads, the price will sharply drop below 1k$.

The latest version, called Fireball 3, will soon be in the finishing stage. Next, comes installation. Finally, then, the X1 prototype will hit the road.
  After this process, the cost will be more clear. And, as Otto points out about manufacturing; as quantity goes up, the unit price goes down. Just like the Air Kit 3, as we find out how the Fireball 3 performs, you will know here. Of course you will get to see the photos and videos. If you don't have a decent sound system, get one ready.
  There's the fine sound of a big thumper. This will be something else.

Here is something we have been experimenting with.
 8)

New hardened cam spindles, roller cam bearings, and hardened cam races. Now a full roller valve train from cams to valves.

It drastically reduces the hated valve train noise. Quieter than a KTM or modern Triumph now.
Also helps with the valve train strength which is very helpful with the high lift and valve spring force with our high performance head kit.

We will have some dyno data on all the developments forthcoming when we can.

Oooohhhhhh, that sounds like something  :)

Yes, we are waiting for valves to arrive. Then it goes on Guaire's GT.

At that point, we will have our costs on this new version, and can take orders. I am pretty sure that it will be special order only.

On another front, it looks like we will have some intetesting bolt on vibration control devices for the GT and UCE. Maybe in a month.

That's good news.
