People just want a turbo upgrade just to say what their cars are capable off. Like if there was a turbo upgrade and they race and loss they will say "wait untill I get an upgraded turbo" which many of these people won't even get the upgraded turbo. It is just to say oh my car is better than your because of what it is capable of.

You are 100% correct. However it is better to have a car that is capable of breaking 400whp than not right? I'm currently sitting on the sidelines waiting for all the stuff because my car is still under warranty, and because I just know my local dealers will snuff out my warranty the first chance they get.

I'm fine with my PPK for now. I sleep better at night knowing I can walk into any dealer and get taken care of bumper to bumper, should anything go wrong - especially on a 3 month old car.

lol at someone complaining about poor low rpm performance. an upgraded turbo will spool by 3k or 3.5k rpms, that's perfect in my opinion. if you want a mild grocery getter with quick turbo spool by 1.5k or 2k rpms, keep your shitty stock turbo/manifold.

the vishnu single turbo n54 is a great indication of how the n55 will drive. i'd even think the n55 would be slightly more responsive because of the valvetronic layout.

the vishnu single turbo on the n55 will be a beast. obviously, it's not meant for everyone, but the mid and upper rpm performance of that turbo/car will be a monster and i'd get one in the drop of a hat.

plus it shouldnt take as long to produce since the manifold is already made for a single turbo. I'm saving my money
