    Never kick a man when he's down, I do not think our community understands that saying. But lets be clear this thread is 110% based on ALL the trash MM talked while buying ready made turbos, and selling puzzle kit inlet kits. He did not even attempt to become cordial or friends with current vendors. I think a LOT of people forget, me and Rob had our differences to begin with, then had a very very long run, of being completely cool with each other. This is a guy who came to a platform with no experience in anything, trash talking everyone who paved the way for him. Does it bring a little bit of joy to see him eat his words, you bet it does. That's not kicking him when he is down, that's called Karma.

    ? If he truly wanted to fix the issue. Which forum would you go to for help. Understanding the data. E90 or BB? I don't think he really cares.

    That's one of the things i was referring to in my post, but my point remains that people bashed Tony while another vendor escapes any and all criticism. Vendors should be treated the same, but keyboard warriors aren't rational...so life isn't fair, trust me I know that far better than most, but it doesn't stop me from being surprised at the hypocracy.

    It would help if you actually read the thread before putting your foot directly in your mouth.

    I feel you on that 100% I came to this website barely knowing how cars worked and several months later I can have higher level discussions with enthusiasts and I owe a lot of what I've learned to Tony. (And many more) He gets more shit than he deserves and what makes me respect him is that he sticks by his word no matter what. Tough motherfucker. Same with Sticky.

    Oh the irony. If I remember correctly Tony came into n54 community bashing RBs and stating that they would make a stage 2 setup with more power at a cheaper price. When they were released they did not make as much power as RBs. In case people forgot those were the stage 2 batch one. I am sure mm will go back to the drawing board and make changes just like you did (stage 2 batch 2). People so easily forget where they came from.

    Sub par results? Sure, given the amount of hype MM was putting behind these turbos. That being said, I commend MM Performance for posting some of his preliminary findings even though they were significantly less than what he was expecting. A lot of times people only want to post his/her successes. Is MM on the level of turbo expertise as Rob and Tony, no, but there is no doubting he is extremely bright and motivated. I would never kick a man when he's down, especially after he has put a significant amount of his own money, and time into this. Keep on pressing on Maurico, sometimes it takes a few failures or setbacks before things are perfect. -Dave

    Well if I'm honest, as someone who doesn't get involved with any drama, from my point of view, Tony really gets the short end of the stick 90% of the time. I really don't think people treat him fairly at all, especially considering how much he contributes to the platform. People read words on a screen and they project their own emotion into the words they read. Sure he's seemed abrasive at times in the past, and people hold him to a higher standard since he's a vendor, but he has to put up with so much trash from keyboard warriors who don't have a fraction of the experience or knowledge in this platform. I just don't like hypocracy and people talking sh*t for no reason. It's true that MMP was talking trash about Tony and how much superior his product was. And he's already put his kits up for sale before he's got the bugs worked out. Everybody gave Tony a load of crap for doing that a while back. So when Tony then took a lot of time to get the bugs worked out, people gave him grief for that too. It's a no-win no matter what he did. And now MMP is actively avoiding BimmerBoost so he doesn't look foolish. Then there's Rob who talked an enormous amount of sh*t when Tony came out with his silicone intakes and plans for the silicone hot-side chargepipe. Wouldn't you know it, but then Rob comes out with his Evos and, tadaa... Silicone intake and hot-side chargepiping. I mean come on. Nobody gives Rob that kind of crap for complete hypocracy that they sling at Tony for far less. Really I just think people should show some respect to each other and keep it honest. We all make mistakes. Showing respect for each other, especially those working to advance the platform will go a long way. I mean look at the kind of effort and support Sticky puts into this community. You don't walk into his house and sh*t all over him, but there are users that do that too... OK, that's my heartfelt semi-rant for the month. At the end of the day, all the competition and choice is great for consumers so we should support those that support the community.

    Tried looking for some more info on E90. He said he will post more data later today. Something seems really off with this either he has a hardware issue or the tuning is shit. If he has a significant amount of exhaust reversion it could explain the high boost low flow condition and the back pressure. But I would expect to see that in the fuel mass tables. Will take a look and see if he posted info later. I'm not against this design I don't think it will be a game changer with stock turbine wheel and manifold but we will see. Also MM Performance Your boost creep is because your waste gate is screwing with the P/R on the turbine. Try a divider plate in the downpipe should help.

    Yeah some custom turbos just don't work out. I got a billet TD06SL2 20G from a turbo manufacturer in Taiwan and it is awesome and he got a custom GTX3071R from the same company and it was laggy as shit and wouldn't make power like it should.

    Quoted for truth ;) I didn't even realize Slicksilver/MMP hadn't posted for a while. I don't agree with everything you say but you clearly do know custom hybrid turbos. At the same time, MMP is brand new to this and they may learn from mistakes and get it right. I have no dog in this fight but I think competition is generally a good thing for the consumer. Hopefully it leads to more innovation like the whole inlet thing. I still dont understand how it took so long to realize that when intakes are one of the first upgrades on almost every platform.
