Question What happened to the turbo upgrades?

A month ago I check the forum and there are 2-3 vendors all claiming to have a solution either in the works or completed. Now I do a search and the updates are a month old.

What happened? Do we no longer care about this? Did the projects fail?



Now the forum is little more than HPFP failures. Perhaps instead of a turbo upgrade we could get a HPFP upgrade from an aftermarket vendor that won't go bust!

Maybe they're finding out the hard way that the open deck engine can't hold 500WHP for very long.

That shouldn't be a problem... At worst they need to build a better headgasket. With today's technology open deck designs can hold almost as much power as closed deck designs, and their typically better at heat dissipation and are less prone to damage from thermal expansion.
