    I don't have a problem doing it. If something breaks ill fix it just like anything else that goes wrong with this car. The only issue that I've caused on this car is the trans. and excessive tire wear. Every other issue I bought with the car. I've had to pay for bmw's $#@! ups so ill pay for mine if they occur. Those other guys seem like pretty active members but maybe don't want the turbos to be turned up. One of the greatest things about this upgrade is zero wastegate rattle. That $#@! was really getting under my skin. Shouldnt have to kill your BMW to order at a drive through its not a diesel.

    Just push the $#@! out of them if you want. If they break, just call me and we will handle it. $#@! Dzenno put 28-29 psi to the stage 1's and was pushing 21 psi to redline just to see (something an RB wont even do). Turbos were pulled off the car working fine and are in route back to me for inspection. So far they seem very durable. Batch 2 is about to stir things up.....

    You got standard stage 2's with a 6x6 billet 15T, will flow exactly the same as a standard 15T just has more burst protection. Batch 2 will be different. To answer below. Sure lots more info, it will all be in there when I make the announcement. Later this week.

    I respect the progression Tony. It is clear you aim to fill a niche and keep the product updated and relevant.

    I like the customer service Tony is providing.Someone backing up the fact that I'm fixing to torture his product with no worries. I like that.

    if that's true of deznno 28 -29 psi in step 1, and I with my rb I can not push more than 18.5 psi for fear of breaking as has happened 2 times a guy here in Spain ...


    I feel a little disappointed to have spent over $ 3,800 + 210 euros more customs in Spain for these turbos I smoke 1 liter of oil to 5000 km-6000 thousand km

    RB's have been pushed over 18.5 psi many times. Sounds like you have a problem. There are too many sets of rb's out there for a couple of failures to sway anyone's opinion. I think they are a great upgrade and I chose a diff. route to try something different. Plus Tonys background played in my decision they really know what they are doing over there

    He was pushing this boost way down low to get the tq way up down there, no stock frame turbos will hold that boost to redline. He was very surprised he was able to take them to 21 psi to redline though. You shouldn't have a problem pushing 20 down low to 18 or so up top and they should last. If you are having a problem just drop Rob a line, I am sure he will take care of you.
