the turbos perform incredibly and have had excellent reliability, BUT we would like to release them with a flash tune.

There are thousands of people with jb3 and/ or proceede - you should release just the turbo upgrade right now IMHO.

You can always package your upgrade with a glad tune later !
Respectfully I think u guys are making a mistake (just think about apple versus Microsoft about 20 years ago).

If this were to happen who would be interested in the turbos only? of course there would be a core exchange program!

Core exchanges are gonna be tough considering most of these cars are daily drivers.

For the right gains and price I do not think you realize how big of a market there is for turbo upgrades right now...

It can't possibly be that simple. I would think you need a higher duty HPFP, larger injectors, and an upgraded FMIC as a necessity. Then again, we were wrong about the tunes in 07, methanol in 09, and nitrous in 2010. Let us know how it goes!
