    That is correct. The GTX turbos spool faster.

    2) I can buy Stage 2 + Stoptech BBKs for the same price of Stage 3,
    3) I won't be allowed to buy a new gun this weekend at the gun show,
    4) I only drive 6 miles round trip to and from work everyday and rarely drive my car on the weekends, and
    5) No no no no no.

    Now I have to keep reading over this list for the next 5 days until the pre-order pricing is pulled.
    My girlfriend told me no, unless she gets a TwinTurbo kit for her 370z next year (that's actually an incentive, you won't find me complaining about that). And that I cook her dinner for a few nights. Click here to enlarge

    So I'm #2 on the list, deposit made. GTX2863Rs. $#@! YEAH

    @VargasTurboTech -- Can you comment on a percentage increase on the final (non-intro) pricing?? Also, I can't remember but this include enlarged turbo inlet piping??
    I'm curious about the non itro pricing too - $1000 on top for the GTX options?

    Considering the turbos alone aren't far off $2k eqch with housings, very reasonable!

    I thought engine bays were basically identical? Same size at best?

    be good to find out, i'm sure you'll let everyone know when you do!

    i'm glad it won't fit RHD now though, i have so many other things to budget $7k for LOL :p

    Good intro pricing. If I had a 335 I would get twin disco potatos on that $#@!. Seriously people should hop on this now as this is intro pricing.

    For the quality of the components, and quantity of each, that price is phenomenal.

    Phenomenal pricing, I don't see why anyone would want to get a Vishnu Single turbo kit after this. Keep up the good work Tony.

    I opted for the 63R, but I may change my mind if I see some projected dyno information and after I see more testing on the dyno regarding spoolup time.

    I think you're going to love the 63R. VERY responsive turbos. The 67R may be a little too laggy for some people. prob anther 500 RPM later than the 63R

    The turbo pricing isn't awful but being a 6AT, it becomes much more expensive to achieve this power without the tranny going boom. Of course, this isn't a knock on this kit but every kit that is going to make big HP / TQ.

    Not to muddy up the water to much.... I think it's kinda interesting that FFTEC sells a BB kit for the EVO at $4030.00 and a Non-BB kit for the 335I at $6750.00. Does it cost $2700.00 for 2 extra runners and Non-Ball bearing?

    Vargas VTT Stage 3 is very well priced considering that 2 of GTX turbo's cost the same as FFTEC's
    EVO price (very close).

    Please Note that FFTEC makes very nice kit's!!!

    Check out ATPturbo.com and read about both. The GTX wheel profile i s very high efficiency and flows much more at the same turbo RPM. So at the same spool its moving more air, and can support more HP with the same size wheel. THE GTX wheels outflow just about everyone other wheel profile. Including the Borg Warner EFR comp wheels.

    So far we have:

    For tuner kits:
    Dzenno of course getting the first kit after the OP of the test car VTX-R63
    Terry of BMS next so he can see what he can do with it. Not sure which size turbos T has decided on yet.
    Jake from PTF also wants a VTX-R60 kit

    If any other tuners want a kit, IE GIAC, Renntech, etc. Let me know and I can work you guys out a great price.

    Intro price orders
    #1 BMW335iguy VTR-28RS
    #2 Sered VTX-R63
    #3 and #4 are in contact with me and weighing their options, most likely will get them locked in tomorrow.

    Not bad for the first day. Hopefully we get enough of these things going to where we can do a nice production run
