For stock frame turbos wait for the RB's to come out. Cheaper and they will fit better on the turbo. The VTTs really have to be clamped down on the turbo to prevent leaks. Yes I saw Tony's video but the reality is much different when you're installing them on the car. If they were smart they would have made two different kinds, one for stock frames and one for their stage 2 turbos. Get in on the the RB group buy.

I wish I would have waited a couple months for the RB's to come out. But the VTT inlets are already in and there is no way I'm doing that install again

I am selling my new TFT Inlets because I could not get them to fit my Z4 but they will fit perfectly on the 335i. This is a full kit that includes the CP and all of the parts needed for the install.

Isn't it interesting that all of a sudden VTT has a group buy for $399 for 10 buyers and he can afford to sell them at that price YET sold 60 as quickly as he could produce them at a "fair" $500 lol. If he can sell 10 for $399 he could have damn well sold the 60 he couldn't keep on the shelf for the same unless you believe there is no profit being made in this group buy (or he's doing it for love). Isn't it interesting how the MM inlets magically dropped $250 in price. As I said all along you guys were being ripped a new azzhole with the price gouging and all you had to do was wait it out.

Wait until the RBs come out and then buy the best product now the prices have dropped. Hell wait for VRSF, I foresee $149.99 and free shipping.

RB just slashed everyone's prices. there is a group buy for $279. I feel this is where the price should be. For the additional 20+ rwhp, it's a great value......if you want to go through the pain of install.

The drama over there has been crazy today between the two. Vargas just posted that he will no longer be active on the forums and if you need to reach him to email. WTH?

"Hey guys. If and when this list gets to 10 people, please email (not PM) me your names, once we have 10 payments I will ship these out the same day. We are no longer active on this forum or any other for who knows how long, we may never come back to be honest. I have disabled all emailed notifications so I will not receive anything, if you wish to reach us, please shoot me an email. At this point, people know who we are, they know where to find us. We will be updating facebook, and instagram, head over to those outlets to keep up with what we are doing. We should be posting some numbers of some new stuff we are testing soon. Cheers"

Sorry I haven't done research yet, but with the inlets alone and no additional tuning should we expect 20whp gain on stock turbo's?

Our first few sets are arriving in about 2-3 weeks if you're not in a hurry. We're going to offer the easier to install version of the inlets (TFT/MMP) and should start in the mid $2xx

Pre-orders up early next week!

I think he's a lil pissed the RB announcement was made before he could sell off his new stock lol. Before he sold 60 as soon as they came in. Now he has 10 just waiting for a group buy to fill before shipping which if you have any common sense can easily connect the dots. I think the product and execution was on point but I don't feel bad one bit because the price was insane and I never drank the koolaid one bit about how much it cost to produce two damn short hoses. Had he sold them at the right price to begin with this wouldn't be happening.
