    Good honest post. Appreciate this. We are genuinely interested in seeing how more of these 2+'s perform ourselves. As you may (or may not know), we ran our version of them and saw some immediate things we didn't like… primarily in the plumbing. Knowing that it would be a train wreck to sell product to many consumers while armed with this information, we pulled the plug on the product altogether. It did not seem fair to sell something to someone without full disclosure of what they were going to need to actually utilize them to any potential whatsoever. As we now have found the inlets were even a massive restriction on the Standard RB's, much more than ever imagined. But given what we saw on the Super RB's makes perfect sense. Then while in a revision process, we determined that even with an inlet fix that there are so many other gaping deficiencies with the 2+ build strategy that the final product still would be half thought out and we couldn't bring ourselves to market it without much redesign. So we have been pushing along much further to get the entire system the way we want it. I am very curious to see how you guys all do with your setups, as from much studying it is believed that those wheels (19T+) are just too large for the OEM TD03 Compressor housings altogether. Theres just not enough distance between the exducer and diffuser to have an efficient low to high pressure transition, and the housing radius is too small. If found to be correct this will make them very inefficient and cause IATs rise much quicker than normal and with tapped out airflow, and just an otherwise unhappy combination of parts. The corrective action for this is to provide a compressor housing that is the appropriate size for such a large wheel, although that again opens up another design pandoras box with all of the plumbing. Anyway much of this is theory, solely based around the compressor side only (turbine talk another time), so looking forward to comparison data that is forthcoming. Rob

    I have the hex dump. Fairly large file. Gonna play with this a bit to form a better opinion on this matter.

    Maxing out the turbos was never something I intended to do, the main reason for getting them in my case was the fact that I could get them on and tuned for around 575 whp and still have some headroom to bump it up a bit if I decided to later. With the introduction of the inlets its obvious that I likely could have achieved the same on stage 2/RB's anyway which is still fine with me. Now this means I am able to run a bit more power and work the turbos that much less theoretically increasing turbo life. I do plan to try to get some numbers on the dyno for fun but the limits of this transmission are pretty clearly demonstrated and there is only one person that dailies around 600 whp that has managed to keep his together for any length of time so that tune would most likely only see the strip once and hopefully provide some 60-130 times as well. I know even at 575-600 whp my trans is going to start to slip and require me to back off on throttle before shifts so I have no delusions that I am safe at those power levels but I do hope that the AT will stay together until the summer. I would be very interested to see how this tune behaves on the street, if that HPFP can actually keep up on a multiple gear pull I would be very surprised. Airflow aside (which the RBs obviously provide plenty) I see a very dead HPFP in your near future, this is no stranger to me as I have had 3-4 go myself trying to run full e85 with no meth over a year and a half ago.

    In all seriousness, thanks for at least letting it go down to this extent. It's not your responsibility to make them provide it. Sad this company is shady enough to run and hide anytime questioned, but it is what it is. Those reading can see that anytime VTT makes the classic "we are all about transparency" statement that they are actually right up there with Bernie Madoff. The 645 "record" will be assimilated very soon either way.

    Of course not, it's not like the N54 is a god like motor like the 2JZ. I heard that the 2JZ was banned from F1 because the engine was forged by Jesus and was an unfair advantage.

    Just 3 days ago we post the xi record and Tony comes in with this: It was immediately provided. Now we ask for this in return. So simple. Once provided this is done. It would've been done an hour ago. Do not understand why the one who is always touting utmost transparency always runs and hides when heaven forbid is asked a question of provided a piece of proof that appears to be left out. Well Dzenno just said we need uncorrected data as well (which we provided). But still would be nice to start with something and move from there.

    Joe, If you have the data please just post yourself? We do not take things at face value. This is a very simple request, why must everything be like pulling teeth around here? I just showed some cards, you either fold or you show that you have them beat. Period.

    Who would want to see a one person fight? I will not even respond directly to him, I have less interest in arguing or fighting with him. You have the graph, we know what is going on here, clawing, and scratching for market share by trying to make others look bad. Trying to make your results better, by calling actual better results into question. Things like this reveal a lot about a persons character. Night guys

    Tables are easy to find, but needs someone that understands how to link/define them. What's defined is <10%. A good start would be linking DME pins to the hex probably. This is getting way over my head though.

    Rob why do you press like this? He's not lying. If he wants to post whatever he can. It would be easier to just set up a live PPV feed and have you two just get in a ring or cage already to settle it.

    Oh just in case you were wondering. I can't see quotes either. Quite lovely... Sticky say goodbye to all the work you have put into making this forum operate on a higher level of standards, and integrity. The past 2 days, have seen the most ignorance here in a long time, I guess we should all get used to it.

    No sir. If he can not produce the data as requested then you must have him remove this from his signature: N54 Stock Frame (100% E85) World Record: 645WHP / 654WTQ If he can provide it. Then cool. You said it yourself, you believe in the integrity of your forum. Lets see you put it to work. Thanks, Rob

    I was planning on staying out of this one and letting an elementary school teacher handle this between you two. Honestly though I've seen some interesting graphs. You both really need to relax. The thought may have not occurred to either of you that the hardware depends on how far the tuner and owner are willing to push it. It's practically a wash depending on the supporting mods, fuel, etc.

    The difference between you and us is simple. We sent out 16 sets in the past 2 weeks, you know the product that has been literally destroying all your grandiose ideas for years now. We have about 100 sets on reserve, and they are blowing off the shelves and have been for months. Many of whom have came from "the dark side" after many problems. Anyway we have been awaiting some parts which we finally got back today. So in the interim we have taken some time on the forums to clean up the mess around here. Now back to getting our dynos. @Sticky please ensure this guy provides data. He can not refuse to provide it and expect it to remain the title holder. Keep in mind we do not even know what the result is. Either way it's cool, but its time to show the cards. Thanks, Rob

    The difference between other platforms using silicon plumbing and this one is that there is A LOT of clearance points on this platform. Plus there are 2 tubes each about 5ft, whereas others are usually a couple feet total at most with no clearance issues. With unsecured silicon hosing flailing about, rubbing on clearance points that it is too big to otherwise fit through, etc… could be asking for issues at some point. Just pointing out to do as needed to ensure it fits well and is secured well so it later doesn't cause a problem leaving you with a $500 piece of worthlessness. We are not saying this is CERTAIN, we are saying until it is proven to install well (with proof) that it is worth the cause of concern. Rob

    Source would have been all my years subscribing to Sport Compact Car. That was one of their requirements during dyno testing, I'm sure it probably really skewed the numbers on some Civic SI's and mild bolt on WRX's. Yeah turbo cars you have to find a happy medium enough gear to load it decently on a DJ but not too long that your roasting the intake temps. Keep in mind most of the cars in the magazines were sub 400HP cars most of the time as 400+HP daily's weren't very common just a few years ago. I'm sure
