    Probably a lot of folks feel this way, and the fact that RB and Vargas already have the hybrid market mostly sewn up between them, is why the guys that did this don't plan on selling. Plus it looks like it would not be that big of a deal for either RB or Vargas to offer this as an upgrade to their existing offering. Why go head to head with that competition. If it is too expensive the lower end (HP-wise) singles come into play.

    However all that said and done great that they came forward and presented the N54 community with this possibility. It would be a significant new option regardless who offers it.

    Dude, if vargas or rb could do this why didn't they from the start and blow one or the other out of the water and grab all sales? That is what I don't get?

    Very very simple, we tested things as a progression, we are now at the progression of using our biggest wheels, no tricks, no magic, just better flowing parts. We are getting on the dyno right now, these numbers will be surpased, mark my words...

    My freaking client was closed and I didn't notice. Got it.

    A new thread will be necessary. I assume it's fine for that to be the front page article.

    Nicely done.

    We will announce everything tomorrow, including pricing, estimated ship times, (not long), and results.These are the results we expected when we built these units a while back. We actually had these housings machined in 2012 for the bigger TD04 comp wheels, and they have literally sat on the shelf except when I let Dzenno use them, then we decided to put them on the car a couple weeks ago after we were 100% sure we had maxed out the 15T's, the fact that someone put something similar on a car and made decent numbers before we had a chance to test is just bad timing. I am just happy to show all the believers in magic and "tricks" that there is no such thing, there is the laws of physics, and fluid dynamics at work, nothing more. We solidly beat the numbers, and this was done on low timing, a fuel issue, and medium boost, we will get it resolved and get back on the dyno and make more in the next few days.

    The better flowing wheels are just a little more expensive. So at first the Price will be based on the value to the customer since the cost is not that much different.

    The only reason for not paying a lot for these would be the stock frame turbos that can hit 700whp. We will see figures well above 600whp.

    Nice. Good news indeed. The new generation of stock frame upgrades will be a big hit. Repped.

    Excellent Tony.

    I simply ask we take all discussion regarding your setup to the new thread at that point.

    Surprisingly the capability for the stock frames is pretty crazy. I don't think we will see 700 but it's honestly not going to be too far off.
