Stage 1's installed on first vehicle, ready to ship. Intro price $1299

After some installation issues with the customer performing it themselves which lead to a no boost condition. I pulled it down and finished up the install last night about 11pm. Turbos seems to pull hard and we should have some numbers soon. To be clear I do not think these are going to add a bunch more power over stock. They do flow about 15% more air and should see some gains with a good tune over stockers. Also I decided to go with a stock turbine over the clipped. We have have done clipped in the past and have had varying results. I feel the stock wheel coupled with the 14T MHI wheel is a good combo for some increased airflow while keeping the factory spool. I am doing the intro price on these at $1299 without the SS flapper upgrade, if you want the wastegates upgraded to the SS valves, Add $300 to that and we can't ship for another 2 weeks until the valves come in. This intro price is good for one week from today then the retail price of $1499 will kick in. Pm me or Email if anyone has any interest. The Stage 2's are still just waiting for the SS valves and the final turbine housing machining and I should be shipping to the betas once I get that finished and test a set on our test car. Now that I have this install done I can turn back to the stage 3 test car and get back to work on fabbing. Lets all keep in mind that at $1299 they are simply great alternatives to going back to stockers, with the option to upgrade the wastegate valve. Thanks again for all your patience.

Fantastic. No one should buy stock turbos ever again.

Considering the Stage 2s are only $400 more, for 10x the effort/extra components and a substantial gain in all around drivability and power through redline... I can not imagine why a customer would opt for Stage 1. Curious to see what Stage 1 does for you, but history has shown time and time again to be quite the waste.

How well do these turbo upgrades run without a tune?? Is a tune requirement for all turbo upgrades?

So Stage 2 will be comparable to RB's but for around 500 less?

My car goes to the stealer this week. If they don't replace my turbos, as my request, then I will be getting a set of these for sure.

I'm a little confused on the $400 more? The stage 1A's are $1499 after intro price, stage 1B are $1799 thats $1000 and $700 difference respectively. Rob is def right though. The stage 2's are a LOT more work. The $2499 is not 100% set in stone yet. But it will be close to that.
