I'm one of the 3 (getting the stage 2's)! definitely excited, when they're all ready I will be installing them ASAP.

Hate and aggression can be overt or it can be passive. Can anyone explain to me why Vargas is being ignored here with their multiple requests for sponsorship? Speaks volumes to what some people find troubling here.

Tiago, Thanks man. Got your PM. Now I know where to go to become a sponsor. As soon as the stage 2 are a tad closing to shipping I will pull the trigger and become a sponsor over here as well. I appreciate all the kind words and also I apologize if I got a little aggressive as I felt I was being attacked. I will keep everyone updated.

Looking forward to your numbers. I have to ask though, with limited data on these turbos, what made you pull the trigger?

I know it's hard for most people to understand the difference a big single offers over the upgraded twins, but I've been in two different single upgrade cars and I can tell you first hand that 500 ftlbs to redline and an extra 150 rwhp at 7000 rpm is playing in a whole new dimension... it's stupid fast. Good luck Tony... Good competition drives R&D and we all like new options and new toys, and I'm sure the N55 community would love to see some new R&D as well.
I agree that the N55 needs some attention, but I don't agree that the N54 platform is finished. There really is only a few options. I also love cars with big singles on them, I have owned quite a few of them They are FUNNNN. But 2 Garrett GTX units properly sized for each bank would be a different animal. I plan on proving this, just got to get these hybrids fully done and I can focus on that.

I was thinking we were talking about members, but if we talk about forums, I cannot disagree since I don't have any first hand experience. What I read is that some are claimed to be passive and another forum management is claimed to be "an idiot". Again, this is only what I have read and I don't have any first hand experience and sorry if I hurt someone's feelings, but the point is that dissatisfaction towards forum managements is very common and it is not an easy task to run a forum in the middle of all the arguing. So, let's forgive the forum managements

My current turbos are on their way out, pretty sure the wastegates are dying. Couldn't pass up beta testing a stage 2 upgrade.

When will you guys update your website? it would be great to have all the specs in one spot and a place to reference people to.

Easy. It's because they must also cater to the status quo.
They have to first figure out if there is a risk of losing any existing premium paying vendors.

The stage 2 betas should ship in ~3 weeks. Of coarse, in situations like this issues could arise to push that back a little.

Well you know how timelines go... but if everything works out on their end they said 2-3 weeks. I'm fully expecting some random delays though, it's always a possibility with this type of thing. They're being machined now, quoting tony...

I have them at the machine shop now. As long as I am pleased with what I get back we are right on schedule. I am somewhat of a perfectionist so these will be released when I am happy and 100% sure the product is up to snuff. But as I said as long as I am pleased with the machine work. Things will follow the timeline I have already stated.

I have to respectfully disagree... That makes no sense whatsoever.

I've known mods on and been a part of many other car forums in the past, and i've never heard of such an approach. Not allowing a vendor status simply because the pure speculation that they may lose another vendor as a result is rediculous and unethical, and just as rediculous is the idea that a vendor would leave simply due to a competitor joining.

This forum may be different, but I highly doubt status is given on a popularity style basis or that any type of business fallout would result from any one vendor joining a forum.
