These sound way too expensive to be worth it at the moment when people are seeing 410rwhp+ on 100 octane with a JB3 and bolt on's..

This yea but longevity on stock turbos is the problem, also the power curve is so much better with upgraded turbos at 5800-7000 on the graph its making 60 to 70 whp more than stock turbos, even if its only 25 to 30 whp PEAK more, the car will be way faster. Plus 430 is conservativly tuned i bet you will see 440-450whp all day long on 93 oct as these kits get fine tuned.

that's a pretty bad price if you ask me..if you read their website they ask that you provide the hardware a.k.a the turbos or "an additional charge will be applied"..

i purchased stock turbos on ebay for $250 cuz i was going to do this a while back, dp's from riss for ex. are $550, mp's & mufflers lets say $1500-$2k if you go w/ a higher end muffler set up, this totals roughly $2500-$3k in parts including stock turbos! meaning they're charging $3,500 to port your stock turbos & put new internals in & then charging another $1200 for install..i'm sorry but that's not a great price

It isn't a great price, no. However, the car is new. The parts are expensive. Finally, the pioneers of this venture will have to spend some money on R&D to finally get it right. C&C machines are not cheap either. I wish it could be done easier but until this car is out for a few more years I don't see a cheap turbo swap coming yet.
