    Question: ICS Performance Research and Development

    After being in the BMW world for countless years I've finally had to ask a question that has boggled me for quite some time. The first time I had actually read George posting about his research and development practices and strong reputation as being a leading BMW FI shop on the east coast, pushing the envelope, I had to say I was quite impressed to hear such a self proclaimed title. Never the less I continued seeing the self proclaimed title being written and the claims being made about "walking the walk", yet I never saw any type of empirical backing behind his findings.
    BimmerBoost seems to be a medium where enthusiasts can have a proper discussion with out having to be worried about moderators and administrators that are way to enthusiastic about utilizing the ban stick when a vendor gets questioned.
    Therefore, I'd like to publicly direct this question at ICS Performance, and to keep this thread strictly educational.

    "ICS Performance"; George Kakaletris, as a self proclaimed leader in the BMW FI world, pushing the proverbial envelope time and time again:
    - What type of empirical research and development do you conduct?
    - How have you determined that your ICS Performance exhaust manifold is superior to the Boost Logic exhaust manifold?
    - How have you determined that the turbochargers you utilize in your turbo setups are the correct ones for the application?
    - How is it that an "industry leading" facility does not know that "boost coming on slower" isn't what prevents connecting rods from catastrophic failure?
    Hopefully we'll finally get some real answers, an opportunity for you to provide real and "informative information".

    It is VERY safe to say that the BMW community is very excited to hear
    that you are willing to share some of your technical knowledge with us this weekend.

    Its going to be a gorgeous Memorial Day weekend.

    Some good Q & A action for the PIONEER of BMW FI.

    You forgot to use the [sarcasm] and [/sarcasm] tags.

    I asked about the proper use of a TWIN turbo set up in your other thread.

    If you could answer and show us IN THIS THREAD
    what you plan on doing differently
    with the TWIN TURBO set up that your "client" has requested (here TWIN TURBO TEASER THREAD)
    as compared to
    YOUR personal M Coupe twin turbo set up
    that would be great.

    Or do you think that there is nothing you could have done better?

    BTW,
    please don't use the constantly cliched,
    "I walk the walk. I don't talk the talk",
    real world use as compared to scientific understanding of TURBO hows and whys.

    What a beautiful weekend.

    Sounds like a good read to me. I would like to know as well. After seeing the MCoupe I have silently dreamt of having that setup on my car.

    This weather here is truly amazing! Can't wait to surf tomorrow!

    So GK didn't even "ask" to have the OP contact him privately, he just ignored all questions in the thread?

    Anyone watch Jeopardy?? I love when they start playing the music during the Final Jeopardy round...you can see the contestants looking around, staring at Alex, feverishly writing stuff down and scratching it out...there's such a nervous energy about the whole thing!

    I only bring that up because, we're all waiting patiently while the Jeopardy music is playing while GK takes his time responding to other posts, talking to people about the weather and other pleasantries, instead of taking some time to find an answer to the questions I proposed Click here to enlarge

    Good luck! We look forward to your infinite wisdom Click here to enlarge

    As I recall, ICS spent ONE WHOLE day online, nearly constant activity here (12:00am 5/24 - 1 am 5/25)
    calling out and ENJOYING and boosted325is debate over ill practices;
    however, when it comes to a 10/20 minute chat about the simple techniques of TURBO set ups
    he is wandering around at the coffee shop across the street.

    FAIL! His knowledge is looking weak by lack of response.
