I'm also saying I see smaller turbo kits coming out for less than the current FFtec price of $6750, there's already a manifold available for $2k top mount, and you can get 550hp turbos for under $1k. So already it's feasible to have a single turbo setup better than stage 2 turbos with around 550whp for $5-6k. We'll see kits for $4k before long, I'm sure. That's why I said I can see stage 2 turbos becoming obsolete, they're only reliable at levels of minimal gain over stock turbos, and as more single turbo setups come available, the stage 2 market will just pretty much be gone.
