VISHNU/FFTEC single kit Buyer #11 ??

just purchased the FFTEC kit, from what they are telling me i am number 11, from when the manifold started getting vin'ed. It's the 62/62 kit. Basically just wanted to post this up to find out who else has the kit and maybe some pointers about it, also have a catch can installed currently, the bms catch, was wondering if anyone found a way to keep that installed with the single kit? And if anyone has any videos they wouldn't mind posting up on here of the kit in action, that'd be great, if not, in a week or so i'll have some crazy ones up for you all. Thanks!

FWIW, There are more than 11 single turbo kits out there at the moment.

Don't forget, it's a Vishnu/FFTEC collaborative effort, maybe you could edit the thread title.

I'm in there somewhere.

I don't think you'll need the catch can. Ball bearing turbo won't have as much blow by as the tiny journal bearing stock turbos.

Congrats on the big step! Crazy how many singles are out there now. Are you located in the east coast? Sounds like you and the other guy with the E93 in FL are the first in the east coast with them.

My 58mm turbo is apparently en route. I'm hoping to drop my car off at FFTEC on Monday or Tuesday, just as soon as they can have me in.

You may want to talk to Shiv about the OCC, I feel like I read somewhere that you shouldn't run one with it.
