The Sun-N-Fun show price was $12,900. Do keep in mind that the engine puts out 100hp (normally aspirated) at around 2800rpm, so it should be compared with the turbo's price.

I emailed them a couple times with no response. Since then I've moved on to consider other options.

They say on their web site that they are looking for a North American sales manager. Company history is intriguing and I do hope they are successful as we can use more choices for reliable power in the experimental airplane world. Here's a video showing the assembly process and some of the upgrades that were made to the original VW engine block. One feature I found unique is that their push rod tubes install like GM used on the Corvair to prevent them for coming loose and leaking:
