    Yes. It would just take a different driveline. Not difficult.

    Not to continue with the shit storm but one of my buddies has had his RBs in his car for about 3k miles and started smoking. When he tried to ask Rob for warranty information, first question was did you install VTT inlets. He deined the claim stating that the inlets cause uneven turbulence or something which caused the failure. Funny thing is a couple weeks after the turbos were recieved, Rob called him up to send the turbos back as some people were experiencing this and he checked them over for the second time. All the while, my friend told Rob not to rush because he was waiting for his VTT inlets to come in to install them together. Rob was fine with having his turbos installed with VTT inlets at the time and now when it's time for his to own up and say the turbos were still faulty, he's using a BS excuse blaming the inlets. Real customer service there.... To the OP, I understand it's a shitty situation to be in but luckily you got Tony helping you out. Just the name of the game when modifying cars. Nothing will ever work 100 percent out of the box and you just got unlucky but you could be in a much worse situation if you got ignored.

    Is it possible to keep the 6spd manual from the 335, but then get the driveline, pumpkin and axles from your kit? Because I like the idea of keeping my manual, but I really want the beefier back end with a non welded differential.

    No, actually if you read what I said, thats not what I'm saying at all. If I put a gun in a child's hands, "I" should know better. Regardless of the maturity level of anyone else on the forum, the only reason I'd do that is if I wanted to see drama. Some people call it foresight and class. Other people call it good information because they are LOOKING for something to complain about. Even if these things failed regularly, it would be Tony's dime every single time otherwise we'd see mass complaining and that would ultimately fix itself over time unless he intends to go broke along with his client's labor budget. The warranty is a warranty. If it was a ten year warranty this would be a different story. You got what ya bought. Next time buy a 2 year warranty product.

    Ya know, after re reading it, I don't think it was the OP original intention to make it seem like a negative situation. More or less just making a post about his situation. What came of it afterwards is different. Who wants a hug and some Skittles?

    Make sure you guys are not overfilling the engine with oil as well. Any oil over the 6.9 quarts (6.5 liters) will partially cover the oil drain return hole on the block.

    Posting this so quickly removes any good will you may have gotten. You played your top card way too fast, when it probably wasn't even needed. As others have said, posting after you got a response and a plan in motion would have probably been the best move. OR if Tony didn't reply after a few days, then it would have been your big move. But at the end of the day its not a huge deal. We should all move on...

    ajm8127 replied to a thread 535xi won't start in N54
    I spent three or four days carrying around an 18" breaker bar and hammer to smack the starter to loosen the brushes when I was having starting trouble. If you've got power to the solenoid wire (the small one) and the starter doesn't spin then that is likely the problem. You need to remove the intake manifold to change it. I bought a Bosch SR0492X from Rockauto for 105 + 60 core.

    Yeah, I see both sides for sure. but as a consumer these posts are why i originally came to the forums. For product and vendor reviews. I don't think his thread makes Tony or VTT look bad at all to be honest. One of his customers posted a review and vented an issue with a product that he admitted was out of warranty. And tony did a stand up thing and is helping him out. Trust me i have been on the look out for turbo failure threads as of late because i have been in the market for a while and because of posts like this i made a decision and placed an order . I do understand why tony would be upset with him doing it so quickly but when you are upset 24 hours is a long time to have your car down. Tony is always a bit brash and quick to tell how he feels so that is always expected and the Rob/Tony debacle will always get injected into any turbo threads (good or bad)so that isn't anything new either lol.

    It would be super cool if you documented the entire build progress, obviously thats asking a lot for a company thats trying to produce these things to make money, but it would still be kinda neat for the forum. Behind the scenes of how its made.

    So you are saying the OP should refrain from telling us his product experience because we have vendors who cannot control themselves on forums? I appreciate reading the good and bad experiences on here. I realize shit happenens in the mod game. Getting the good and the bad helps us make wiser decidecisions. All vendors in the mod game have dirty laundry. How it has been handled in the N54 world has been quite dissapointing though. You make a good point about install as I do wonder how many of these problems are due to install problems.
