Thanks Tiago@VRSF
That actually answers my question.

6500 products on the website with new ones added every day.

Dynoing every product requires us to buy a dyno, buy close to a hundred cars and hire a team of people to dyno cars 8 hours a day.

I like the idea of dominating the market but i dont think the dyno idea is realistic

Thats being said we do our best to post results of parts we sell.

This month we are dynoing the Open flash tune, Active Autowerke flash tune, Active Autowerke midpipe.

Mike, we don't have 6500 power adding mods. You know what I mean, FBO: intake, downpipes, inlets, outlets, fmic, and of course turbos. Let's be logical here, not expecting a Lux halos to be dyno'd lol.

Any product claiming to increase or help turbos make more power should have a number attached. We see it with intakes, Intercoolers, ect. Most buyers simpy like to see a hp gain next to a product like this. Even if its shown on a 400whp modded setup. Most here are modded anyways in someway. Best way to market a product like this is put numbers beside it.

LOL maybe not 6500 product that needs dyno but its defently in the thousands.
Keep in mind we carry products for other car brands as well not just BMW

I have the VRSF silicone outlets on stock snails, would there be an improvement with these?

I imagine the silicone would generate less turbulence but highly doubt there would be a noticeable difference between the two.

So, how do you know what you're selling? You've just claimed thousands of power adding parts that need dyno...but, can't dyno them to confirm power added?

How did we get to a point where the customer is responsible for this part of R&D, on their own dime?

That's not the argument here though


vbp6us suggested that vendors need to dyno every part they sell which is not doable for obvious reasons i mentioned above.

Had vbp6us suggested manufacturers provide dyno for their power claims, it would have been a different conversation

The power gains are going to vary depending on modifications and tuning.

The other things is these improve turbo efficiency, which means they work less.

Reducing the restriction means your turbos work more efficiently, create less heat, lower WGDC and by no accident performance is improved.

I have no argument it's great to see data. However, to do it effectively, thoroughly and above all satisfactory to the majority is likely difficult.

We’ve seen over a 20% drop in WGDC on a FBO stock turbo car but if there’s any interest I’ll be happy to offer up a full refund for the first couple customers that can provide us with a before/after dynos

Any tips from anybody who has actually installed these? I’ve been messing with them for literally days. With the O-ring in the mounting flange, it makes the assembly too tall for the V-bands....they close right up without the O-rings. I’m sure I’m just missing something, but I haven’t been able to find anything online and I’m new to this car.

Thanks!

The o-ring is a bit thicker in order to promote a better seal. You can warm the o-rings up a bit in warm water to make them a bit more malleable.
