    That's like saying can a twin turbo Vette, Viper, or Ford GT put the power down.

    I hope you're right, but Viper's are NOT known for keeping traction actually their reputation is how awful they drive, handle, and how they can't keep traction at stock power levels. Maybe the new GTS and TA are improvements, but only by electronically limiting power below stock levels. Vette and Ford GT are definitely two of the best tractioned RWD cars out there, we'll see how high-powered M3's fair

    Still confused with how much publicity, and love Sticky gave them with his build they always seem to post this stuff over on the other site first? Doesn't make much sense to me. With that said, I am still curious as to why the pictures so 2 different sized turbos. Using 2 different sized turbos, not in sequential or compound format does not work well at all.

    Perhaps you can order the kit with either size turbos?

    I wonder why both are ground off in the same area.

    No bad angle or crop is going to change the size of the inlets and housings.

    Sucks, but it is what it is. There are more idiots with money to spend on that site than here. You go where the money flows.

    Are you sure about that? Honestly, I'm just asking, I know on the N54 platform everyone doing a big build is over here. Maybe a bit different on the M3 platform. Maybe //M guys just don't like Sticky...my general perception though is that the more serious guys with larger projects are over here and there is just a huge number of tune and intake guys over there

    lol, if only it were that simple...that would help traction for sure, but the GTR is just soo quick I dunno, I just don't see it. I mean go to a TX2k, or Kc2k or FL2k event and see what's running with the GTR's, the answer is...no one. Maybe a couple Supra's with tubbed rears for huge tires, but that's it. It's not as easy as just throwing power and tires on a car, but I definitely hope to see the M3 compete, I'm not rooting against at all.

    I keep an account over there for a reason and its not because of the post quality. People over there do spend money, it would be awesome if everyone came over here I would jump ship in a sec, but from a business stand point, its hard not to be over there. This still doesn't explain why they don't do what I do, when I am making posts or announcements, I always make them first here, and over there second, and I see this as the go to forum for the community. It seems they made the update over there and didn't even make one here. Strange considering the owner of this forum pushes their stuff so hard.

    Yeah, I agree, that doesn't make sense. I totally understand posting everywhere, if I was in your shoes and a vendor for any platform I'd make sure to be active on every forum that matters. It would be silly not to. BTW, a little off topic, but are you running batch 2's on the shop car right now or just waiting for stage 3?

    Gintani did make a post about this on this site, just in the other thread:

    http://www.bimmerboost.com/showthrea...urbo-Kit/page7

    Click here to enlarge Originally Posted by Sales@Gintani.com Click here to enlarge
    Hey guys, we understand that everybody is more than frustrated with the delayed progress and updates on this thread. It was our fault for releasing the information way too early without considering running into a few bumps along the way. We would like all of you to understand, this project had started out for us to have some fun with our own personal car. When we decided to make this into a production kit, there were a lot of changes that needed to be made for everything to fit like oem and for everything to be safe. The space we are working with is more than tight. This is not one of those turbo kits that you can build using just aluminum piping and U bends.


    As of now, we have made a lot of changes even to our turbo manifolds and extreme changes to the piping. We are doing our best to finish the production pieces which will include a lot of cast pieces.


    The car has been taken apart again for a few more changes. We will be testing fitment of newly designed pieces. We will be putting the vehicle back together with the fabricated pieces and old design turbo manifolds and will continue further testing with these components until the final production pieces are completed.


    We understand an update has been long overdue, so here are a few videos of the kit. Enjoy.
