Was this special pricing you speak of "free", because I can't see dropping $600-800 labor plus whatever they want to mod the turbos without some proven stats. They could turn out to be hacks and make things even worse.

If these are all they say there are, I'm sure you can find 20 people to buy them -- Obviously no one wants to be the first car & then it turns out once it's installed, it either doesn't work or something breaks.

GL & if it works, I'd be very interested

I think you will have to re-brand them as your own product and sell them, I'm not sure - I've passed the info onto my buddies and they are in direct contact with the company now since I didn't really want to blow up my auto tranny haha.

Well they said they machine all the housings and upgrade the wheels (I'm not a turbo guy, but that sounds decent?) and the OP of the thread texted me last night saying they "use billet actuators and we can adjust the pressure" - that sounds decent on paper?

Would you happen to know of companies that sell turbos to other companies for re-branding?
I want to dig up details on the company, but at the same time I don't want them to find out I'm snooping around and leaking their info and then the deal goes sour haha.

I don't think there is any way they are going to get all of that done for ~$1500.00. It wouldn't even be worth it for them. There is a lot of machine work involved, and hundreds of dollars in parts cost.
