Looking forward to seeing what you come up with. Don't get me wrong, I think it's great you're stepping in and going after this market also. Options are always good....

I plan on proving this, just got to get these hybrids fully done and I can focus on that.

I was a very early buyer of the VRSF DPs months ago and I couldn't be happier with the purchase and install (did myself). Anybody charging and paying $800+ for DPs is crazy. Most of the people raising hell about VRSF were working at a certain rival company or people that realized they wasted so much $ on another certain company's DPs and tried to justify it by bashing VRSF.

With that said, the best thing to do is always wait for real world results/tests/reviews and then make judgments accordingly.

I didn't say he couldn't do it. I just said it wouldn't be great gains without a tune.

It was obvious to me in your previous post...lol A tune is a given. Don't know why others figured otherwise.

There's hate on both forums. Even for this same thread. It exists in both places, and always will.

More turbo options are better for everyone (except competing turbo vendors). People who get bent out of shape about new options are either keyboard jockeys looking for attention or have something to lose.

Vargas, are you the guys in Hayward? I think my buddy has a dodge cummins diesel you guys suped up. It's really fast for a big truck. Good luck to you.

Like other members, I am pretty excited for a reasonably priced turbo upgrade. Not that I thought RB's were unreasonable, but options are good. With 53k on the odometer, I am sure that I will be ready for an upgrade soon and if not, I will be willing to pull the trigger on a set at the right price.

Good luck Vargas!!

In the mean time feel free to follow the thread on the other site for updates until I can become a Vendor on this site. And to answer the question above. I actually set up a wholesale account with them to get those Billet actuators and was going to offer them as an option. But As Rob from RB has stated in the past. There really is not need for them besides cool factor the stock units are very capable and work great at a good price. I still might offer them but they really wont equate to any real numbers from what I can see, too bad you cant see them once they are installed cause they look bad ass. Looking forward to what is to come and helping this community with quality products.
Any updates on the product? Did you receive your vendor status yet? Iíll PM you, I am interested in stage II upgrade

I will be a vendor here in the next 2 weeks just waiting to get the stage 2's closer to shipping. We are looking good as far as time frame and should be ready to ship to our betas around the end of the month, as soon as we get the testing done and no changes need to be made they will be ready for shipping to everyone. I will keep everyone posted.
