But given the turbo is ~$1500 I think the manifold/pipes should be around ~$2000. Add in $500 for a few CNC parts and a wastegate and the full kit (to connect to OEM exhaust, etc), should be $3995 or something like that.
    +1 to both of you, when you're the only high HP aftermarket turbo option, you can make up a price and charge whatever you want cause you've got control over the market. The biggest problems was that the ST tuning wasn't ready for average customer (especially the 6AT crowd). So the fact that the ST came out & didn't perform as advertised (1st fault). Then you have people like creaminz & skinrock both putting their cars/the kits up for sale months after they purchased them (2nd fault). AND finally, you have Tony throwing his hat into the N54 aftermarket turbo ring, and delivers a high quality product that works, offers a variety of options and allows you to use any tune that you want.

    If Shiv doesn't slash the price on the ST, nobody is gonna buy it when you've got the variety of VTTS3s that could bury the ST -- Small twins for the 1/4 miles & the monster snails for the 60-130s/Airfield Event junkies.

    Two guys sold their kits after being installed for a few months? Why?
    Why would you go through a $1500 installation to pay that right back to switch to another solution?

    Because they paid for a product that didn't deliver and negatively affected the driving experience of the N54.



    And that's only 2 confirmed unsatisfied customers because they're active on the forums, which means there's a possibility that there are more people who have bought the kit have been left unimpressed with their $10k+ investment.

    Dammn. But has any refinement been made since? The last few treads I read was good feedback on the ST, especially the AWD one.

    Absurd. You know whats funny though? They created engine sections a year after I made this layout essentially copying me. I guess I should be flattered.

    I believe Creaminz decided the keep his car but I'm not sure whether he sold his kit or not. Also FBIS seems pretty happy with it, although he's been pretty quiet...

    Am I sleeping or did I just miss everyone saying they are unsatisfied with the ST kit? I'm not sticking up for Vishnu at all, just curious.

    E90Post is laughable. I post less and less on that forum as the days go by, I'm sick of it. You have all the VRSF and Vishnu cock-suckers, idiots that tune their cars and don't even know what an ECU is for god's sake, and then the people that ask if disabling an exhaust flapper will void their damn warranties. C'mon. It's like a mental health institution

    It's all good -- I'd take the silence from Vishnu cheer squad (creaminz, skinrock, FBIS, etc) as a sign that the kit was not what they hoped for & still hasn't delivered the performance it was marketed to. Only Shiv's car (stripped interior, no passenger seat & DRs) has done anything notable performance wise.

    I don't understand why an app is such a big deal though. I mean the forum works fine on my phone.

    Honestly, I MUCH prefer using the desktop site on my phone. I've never been a fan of Cell phone forum apps.

    This is my point as well. I feel like the app caters more to the average person.

    Either way the demand is there for an app so I guess I have to.

    I personally think it's better without him and without me owing him anything.
