    Of course that is what this is but do these guys really have experience with big mechanical upgrades? I mean they can put pink rims on a car and wings and such but...

    I like how they post that on their FB page already before Vishnu has released pricing. So now everyone who calls them gets rerouted to Vishnu.

    Still think it's kind of low to post that and not put a disclaimer on it that it's not actually their product but that they are only the installer... whatever.

    To clear up the confusion, it is the Single Turbo kit by Vishnu/FFTEC. That is the picture I took with my iPhone and posted it myself while I was visiting LTBMW. I do apologize for not mentioning Vishnu/FFTEC on that post, and posting without LTBMW's permission. One of their computer was logged in and I didn't think it would be such a big deal to post that picture.

    Vishnu/FFTEC is working really hard to finalize the tune before they release any pricing info, and it is confirmed by Vishnu/FFTEC that LTBMW will be an exclusive So.Cal installer for their Single Turbo kit once it becomes available to the public. As far as their experience in big mechanical upgrades, LTBMW is still a new company but have built solid reputation past 2~3 years. Every shop has starting point in whatever they specialize in, and so far from what I have seen, they are more than capable of doing this type of major work on cars besides other stuffs they specialize in. They have done numerous Supercharger, Turbo, Twintrubo installs, motor swap, transmission swap & ect. on customers cars with zero problems.

    Again, I do apologize for the unnecessary post on their Facebook and hope this clears up the confusion.

    You mean he could have met me.

    Matt, I really regret not coming down to Santa Monica when you were here but I honestly was exhausted and went to straight to bed after texting you. I was up at 6:00 AM that day with little sleep. I'll come out to New York though to make up for it.

    Very excited to see what this kit does power wise. I don't have any personal experience with LTBMW, but i have seen several cars built by Long in person and attention to detail is definitely paid. Keep up the good work and hope to snag a new bumper from you guys soon! -RJ

    Sorry for dragging this off topic but ... what is the story with the Vishnu auto single turbos? People were posting updates every hour, right up to when they got their cars back. Everyone was sure that the auto guys would be ticking off 10's with ease (as I hoped) but I have not seen an update post with any data for quite some time. I even read where FBIS did a write-up on his new halon fire extinguisher ... surely that can't be the biggest development that he has to write about?

    I am not asking this to flame Vishnu (or anyone else) it is just that silence after so much publicity often means that problems have arisen, and are being suppressed, or the results are not meeting expectations. I am genuinely interested and waiting for an update.

    AT gear changes at 6700rpm don't match well with big single having its potential beyond the gear change RPM.
