    "The injectors have a maximum of 40 mg/ms spray at 200 bar. This is an incredible amount of fuel, much much more than any solenoid injector. It is this high, because when we designed the application, BMW insisted that the engine must be able - in limp mode - to only use the LPFP pressure, which is 5 bar, and still drive the vehicle at 170 km/h."

    40 mg/ms = 318 lbs/hr = 3243 cc/min
    170 km/hr = 106 mph

    I used 0.74 kg/l for gasoline and 2.205 lbs/kg. But remember, this is at the upper limit of pressure, 200 bar - that's 2900 psi. I think the flow rate would increase logarithmically with pressure, up to a point, then level off. Maybe someone who actually took a fluid dynamics class could comment.

    Regardless, with a HPFP that can maintain its pressure, that is still a lot of fuel.
    Hey, my memories not that bad after all! Thanks for finding that.

    Too late to edit, but i mean cmon seriously? I talk with Tony on a daily basis and I would trust him a lot more than what Ive read about this guy. You cant compare the RB/VTT fiasco to this....its on a different level.

    The different level is only in that we have not been on other forums peddling turbos and making enemies then saw an opportunity in the N54 world and jumped on it. We are here basically because I thought the platform had potential. I totally understand trying to fight for market share which we did. Imagine this, I talk to John on the phone, I send him my pump, he does what he says and sends me back his modified pump, it works to get the fuel we need and we use that pump to set the WHP records with the stage 3 car instead of our own upgrades. Now john owns a piece of those records too and already has a good name in the platform, I tried to explain that what we were doing was big and he wanted to be a part of it. Obviously you saw how he treated that. He didn't even open the box and dodged my emails and calls for a month +. This is a guy you want to buy from now?

    I guess if we're "keeping it real here" Tony has shown his upgrade works and has been fairly transparent on what is involved. When OP posts up his data then we can make a comparison to see if he's bringing something new to the table for us (which would be welcome), or just knocking off what Vargas has already done. If OP has a history of over promising and under delivering (I've never heard of him personally before reading this thread) then I think it's reasonable for people to bring that up.

    He is running a business and collecting checks. Can't blame him. Every forum has their good and bad vendors.

    Everyone has the right to pay and be a vendor... If nobody buys his products, he'll eventually stop paying & leave the forum. Looks like HPFP has a BIG hill to climb & prove that their product is worthy

    Hold the F up man. First of all, I don't even know who this guy is.

    Secondly, I see nothing wrong with giving him a chance. You really think his revenue in particular is making or breaking anyone?

    Thirdly, I let you still generate business or do work on the side for guys on the forum without asking for a single penny from you and you are saying shame on me? Seriously?

    Anyone who has any particular issue with him is speaking their mind. I said the proof will be in the product. I'm not trying him on a thread, this isn't a courtroom, and I think there is a lot of competition here and he should be allowed to compete.

    With that said, anybody who has any qualms about using his product shouldn't. That goes for anyone. If it works as advertised nothing more will need to be said. If it doesn't, it won't be sold here.

    How you jumped to the conclusions you jumped to is the real question.

    The aspects that can be compared were mentioned. New turbo builder, big claims, months later it all comes true and nobody cares about the RB's any longer. Tony had to fight for his name and this guy will have to as well. The market will judge. If he fails or takes advantage of anyone it will be on him.

    I look at it in the sense that Tony discussed this weeks ago and had bad experiences. So have a lot of other communities. IMO i would just cut right to the point and save members here the hassle...looking out for the rest of us and for the few that are on the fence about jumping into an unknown vendors product.

    Tony has proven results. This guy comes on here touting the answers to it all, no cars, no videos no dynos no independent 3rd party to verify his work is good....but has a trail of some pretty bad reviews from almost every car brand out there. You could try to say the same for Tony, but he has a full time shop that does turbos for a living...and hasnt moved in 30 years nor covered up his failures.

    Cut the head off the snake before it bites someone else...aint worth losing anyones money here, no matter how much I agree/disagree with that person. I might sound like the internet police but Im getting tired of the bull$#@! vendors and shady scams going on that rock this community on a daily basis. We are all better than that.

    So your condemning him based on posts in this thread with personal experience?

    He deserves the opportunity to try. There are several vendors thriving here who people said would not succeed or that they supposedly had a terrible reputation.

    I agree, just let the guy run his course, if he can provide something useful more power to him, but obviously he has a serious uphill battle in front of him. I personally wouldn't trust him based off personal experience and the experience of others.

    Who else here has a terrible reputation? Besides SSP.

    SSP isn't a vendor here and never will be.

    ICS-Tuning had some things to address as did RMS. Their work and products now talk for them.

    I say give the guy a chance. What if he proves you wrong? If he doesn't, people won't buy it and he won't advertise.

    Not that it matters but IMO that's how the forum ought to be run. People have posted warning about the guy, if it's based on their experience then great, warn away. All the info is out and time will tell if this guy provides a good product or if it's vaporware.

    The problem with killing something/someone off with no proof is that then this place is no better than e90post. There is a risk inherent in being fair.

    i am relatively late to this party, so i apologize in advance...

    hai john!
    long time no see.
    i'll lay off the usual hatred for you, but will say one thing. i hope you don't treat any new customers the same way you've treated your customers in the past. it's ok to speak your mind, but when you're a vendor you shouldn't belittle your clients or act aggressively toward them. keep in mind that was one of the plentiful reasons you've been banned elsewhere.

    hello jake! thanks for sending me here. lol.
    is loosh on these forums too?

    for anyone that may want some reading material, there are lots of threads on other forums with info. i won't clutter this thread with the links, but they're easy to find using your google.

    buy from john at your own risk and if something doesn't work out properly, i hope you get treated with respect.
