    Frankenturbo Tester

    So as some of you may have heard the Frankenturbos are starting to get out in the open beta testing. I had the pleasure of being a tester and working with Doug Harper and the crews at Frankenturbo. First and foremost the customer service has been great, and 2nd the turbos are a beautiful piece, a perfect contrast of affordable turbos that make great power, I also wanted to say that those guys/gals that have stock size VRSF inlets they will fit tightly on the Frankenturbos 2" inlet turbos, have a look at the pics below of the installation.Click here to enlargeClick here to enlargeClick here to enlarge

    No prob.

    You only have three posts and they are all about Frankenturbo from a new account.

    Question, were you asked by Doug to advertise his turbos here?

    No he wasn't. But if you object to discussion of our products in your forum, feel free to take whatever action that pleases you.

    It's a fair question to ask Doug as this is the second account now in short succession making its first post about your turbos.

    Frankly, I don't mind. I just would have preferred to have the answer come from him as seeing you browsing after I asked and answering for him does not inspire confidence in the claim.

    I won't take any action at this time as maybe we'll actually get some valuable data and independent feedback which is sorely lacking with your product IMHO.

    Looking forward to what he posts next. The photos are great but impressions and dyno runs among other data points would definitely help.

    Sounds reasonable.

    What can we expect beyond just the couple of pics?

    I'm going to put it on the dyno as soon as I get the rest of the fuelling parts, I'll provide graphs, and datalogs etc. I'll be happy to share

    Did you install them yourself? Did you have a chance to look at the wastegate hardware? What is the quality from what you have seen?

    So, multiple people, across multiple forums all took time to start accounts just to leave feedback without being asked by doug?

    Something smells fishy af.

    I don't see how you broke any forum policy, but considering frankenturbo's shady past, questionable methods, pages of useless data, and now people are starting to join the forums just to review his products without him asking. This particular forum is best for B.S getting called out, and frankenturbo won't find much love here.

    Question regarding policy was answered 10 posts ago so not sure why you're trying to get victim points now.

    Questions were asked about data among other things. Might be best to focus on answering those questions...

    Hey yeah I installed them myself, they look good , the hot side is very large compared to oem, the waste gates seem similar by look to oem. But I wouldn't be able to tell the type of bushing used. But overall I'm very happy with them.

    Yes I am reviewing my first experience with Frankenturbos, their service and the fitment of the turbos , other testers have already had the opportunity to run theirs and retrieve dyno numbers, I will provide my info when it comes available. That ok? Does that suit your forum?
