They have tested the pump in real world and got a competitor to test it in a rig. That is even better than an independent or own testing alone.
It does not make sense for Vishnu to argue with these people who are just jealous and baiting for acquiring more real world information. Rip-off and Duplicate strategy in copying upgraded twins is several months behind the schedule. Based on the whiners' comments and level of N54 fuel system understanding it will take some time before they will have a true upgraded fueling kit to offer, if ever.
For those who want to DIY a fueling upgrade for a stock turbo car and save some money by doing it, I'd suggest either replacing the stock pump with Walbro or a fabbing a kit similar to the FFTEC/Vishnu offering.
I think you are missing the entire point. It was said 1000x that the Vishnu pump works, everyone knows that.
What people are complaining about, and rightfully so, is the fact that the pump was touted as the end all be all solution. As the only solution available that works. How all other solutions are a ticking time bomb waiting to happen. All this without a single shred of evidence to back up his claims. Thats what people are upset about. And as it turns out the Vishnu pump setup is nowhere near as glamorous at how it was marketed.
It has nothing to do with weather or not the Vishnu pump works or not. It was about him bashing the other solutions and come to find out it was basically BS.
It comes down to intentionally trying to manipulate and mislead the consumer. Thats fine if that is how you want to run your business. But there are and always will be people who are intelligent enough to ask questions and when they do you just might get called the eff out.
