    you guys miss the point -__- stop turing this in to a dick measuring contest. Both products Made almost identical power. me and (david) the 135 running VTT inlets blew all the stock turbos cars out the water. Everyone else was making 400WHP and under 430WTQ and under. Happy with our results on cars that have not even reached its full potential. Both kits with tuning and some stuff dialed in will i think make over 460whp on this dyno and close to 500WTQ . Both my car and his 135 were both having fueling issues. We were both having issues with our HPFP keeping up even though his is BRAND NEW. Needs more tuning on both cars and my car was NOT hitting boost targets (look at logs) I'm dropping 3 psi boost in the top end. n20 Tmap sensor are about to get ordered to push these suckers some more.

    Axles are being measured just now and put into the system, then we can redesign them. Will be sometime later in the year :)

    Its far from dialed, but I have been playing exterminator, killing bugs since Sunday. Got most of the bugs out of it, now tuning can hopefully begin!

    Thanks man! Hate to burst your bubble but it was like that before your build, or even our silicone inlets were done..:) But it was born strictly out of no possible way to get both on the passenger side, as that was the originally my plan, the rear was not going to work, so I went behind, this is what lead us to making the silicone inlets as well. The stage 3 fitment issues brought out a lot of good stuff for the stock frame guys..:) Car is running awesome right now, loving the stock mounts, silky smooth!

    It has almost been the 1 year mark for me of DD and 20k miles on the car with the single turbo kit. I've been to 3-4 half mile events, along with one 1/4 mile event All 120+miles away from me each way and I drive the car. I have gone Camping with my car (200 miles) I've gone to vegas (300 miles) each way. :D Lets just say I drive a lot, and I don't care about miles or gas.I have never melted anything, or burned anything, no issues EVER. I love my beast and the way it drives, it's a feeling of intoxication when I get into my car. I lose almost all care for everything else when I hear those wastegates scream and that feeling pushed into the seat.

    "As expected" :crazy: haha, you can't even keep your shady lies and marketing techniques straight anymore. Your on the record going into my thread saying that the inlets won't make any more power on stock turbos. I proved that wrong and customers are making more tq down low and more power, not to mention more tq and power than your inlets. Also look at the dyno of TJs car above, run 4 is the before run as you can see it was in a higher gear and he still made more power and tq!

    Some of your own medicine.... Tony the Troll! Cool story bro! Guess Reading is not one of your strong suits, read post 12 again slowly and concentrate, haha. TJ made 1 more whp and 7 more wtq than the car with your inlets. Nice try. And I like how you keep showing your true colors just name calling. Keep it up man, keep driving more business my way :) oh and I fully disclosed I was having tune issues with the proceed so tried jb4 and flash to dial them in. You just like complaining and trying to shoot holes in anyone else's results besides yourself. Who do you think you are, hahaha. First it was that I don't show any results then when I do you don't like them so you want to say they don't count, haha, cool story! I am tuning now with JB4 and expect better results on stock turbos and dyno will be very soon. By the way, my car made a lot more power with the flash tune on stock turbos with my inlets, the same flash tuning method you use when trying to make records on your Shaddy products, in your own words, you tell Dzenno "give me the wedge tune". Haha whatever dude. Also you didn't notice that all 3 dyno pulls the tires were slipping? So the car was making more power. Problem solved this time, drag radials in hand. Expect some nice numbers from my inlets on the dyno with JB4 ;)

    Ahhh I see you control the load through the flash and used an external device such as AEM/haltech or even megasquirt to controlled boost and or PI.

    ^ that ...And yes the VTTs are a simple install the TFTs are defiantly meant for if your swapping out stock turbos for hybrids go ahead and do that. But yes like everything else there are advantages to both sides. I have seen some posts on TFT inlets gaining some MASSIVE HP after being tuned and dialed in.

    Since the dme is a load request based system it is easy to run more than 21psi without hiding it from the dme. You simply change what the map voltage represents as load.

    Sucks the vtt car was having fueling issues and some boost problems. I think the moral of the story here is there are some gains with inlets, that's not really surprising at all. As things get worked out more numbers will come in. I feel if you're not running E85 or meth the gains will be negligable, for everyone with good fuel these types of gains are about right. 10+whp, 30+ tq, happier wgdc and a bit more boost before you have to shift. That's nowhere near the gains of those with hybrids but that's still pretty darn good if you ask me. So it really comes down to price and what kind of kit you want to run. They will all likely perform nearly identical. The VTT has the advantage of retaining the stock location and seems like an easier install, other options save a few bucks and add a few headaches. Sucks I couldn't make the dyno, would have been nice to actually dial in some cars there.

    Both jake@motiv and myself have boost by gear (I actually use boost by ground speed) with out PI setups. He uses aem and I use haltech.

    What i am trying to say... Tuning, specific to your parts is what takes advantage of things such as inlets... Say you have a brand new TT setup. your engine doesnt just "know" that nothing goes oh hey DME we got some big ol turbos over here lets behave completely differently and adjust our fueling and boost parameters... TUNING is what takes advantage of that kinda stuff. And back when everyone was talking about how TFT inlets didnt do anything (the first time not recently) when they were tuned.. like PID settings tuned not just flashed with a new map. but actually tuned. they yeilded great results. This is the same with most parts like them, and likely how Tony's FBO stock turbo car put down higher numbers than all the others. (and i say that loving Brian May's inlet design)

    I really don't see the argument here. Both cars are running the exact same Mods and both are running Jb4 with the exact same map six settings and both cars have the exact amount of e85 the only thing different between these two cars is the 135 has the vtt inlet and I have slick silvers inlets. That 135 is running V8 bait back and flash and I am running a standard BMS e85 flash . You can see I made a couple of Ponies more but the difference is so little it's not even worth mentioning. Both cars reacted the same way to the inlets.

    fishy fishy. the only way to test inlets HONESTLY would NOT be to run identical tunes.. actually if it were to be an inlet war to see whos design is the best what you would have to do is have someone example being Terry tune the same car with inlet A) to the absolute max and take full advantage of everything he can utilizing said inlets, then swap them and tune as much hp as he can out of inlet B). THENNN who ever makes the most power has a more efficient product. DONE. This is kinda biased if you ask me. Especially after Tony sited a stock turbo car with VTTs blew all that away hahaha.

    same dyno day even got his car on video hehe my fat ass was sitting in his trunk of the 135. Both were on a dynojet. and yes my results NOTHING changed except raised boost on map 6 from 18.5-20 from 3500rpm-6000rpm everything else is the same

    Sorry if I confused you! I was referring to the other post where slicksheister posted his inlet dyno results, and his before and after tune were completely different. Justin told me you dynoed before and after same tune and picked up 30WTQ, that is as expected, and a very nice result. If this is the same dyno day I am thinking of, our inlet car did 1 WHP more than everyone else, not mind blowing, but a good result

    There was a Vargas inlet turbo that day.Him and i made same power and same TQ. I didn't change anything with my backend flash. Only thing i change was raised boost up top to redline on my jb4 map 6. My buddy with the 135 manual with the VTT inlets and I'm an AUTO made about the same power. He had just 1 revision to his tune. Not yet dialed in all the way. Mine hasn't change much like i mentioned. Both, him and i made ALOT more power than anyone else. His graph is ontop mine is on bottom. ( i made more power ;)

    I love Slickshiesters inlet post, oh hey our inlets made THIS MUCH MORE POWER! Oh we forgot to leave out, we completely retuned, and have no idea how much boost we are not running but its a LOT! If you want to test inlets do before and after same tune, same dyno, this guy picked up 30WTQ which is basically what you will see as the freer flow will give you most boost down low, but you most likely have to add WDGC or PWM to get more boost up top. No one wants to mention, we had a VTT inlet FBO stock turbo car on the dyno that day, and we had the most WHP out of everyone including the TFT inlet car. Whoops
