Very interested in this. I've been looking at going with speedtech this summer but sort of stumbled across this. I'm curious about pricing. Shoot me a PM

With BigBoost dropping their prices below the $3,000 mark for a kit with downpipe and chargepipe (which the VTT N55 kit doesn't seem to require), this should get pretty interesting. This is either going to drive Stage 2 offerings below $2,000 or make them obsolete.

Agreed.

I'm really trying to hold out and see what VTT brings to the table, but damn if Big Boost isn't making it difficult.

Looks like VTT has already dropped the price of their stage 2 offering to $2,199 and gotten rid of the stage 2 ball bearing option entirely.

I saw that.

That means you can now get an S2 turbo for under $3K (with the core charge).

That, by itself, is very tempting. If I knew VTT would give some sort of trade-in credit towards the cast manifold options, I might buy one right now.

As it is, I may just end up getting a VTT S1 to hold me over while these new options are coming out.

Even without a trade-in credit, I'm pretty sure you could get a 50% return selling a lightly-used S1 on the forums.

If the direct replacement kits work as described they will fit RHD cars. We would just need to use our rhd specific DPs etc.

Any update on this Chris? My N55 (135is) turbo just crapped out and I'm in the market for a turbo.

Ewg q4 2018. Is that still the target period and is it definitely going to happen? Went to your website and I really do not see much on this nor pricing.

Haven't tested -not sure there. When we get closer if it's something you're serious about we can talk more.

Sounds good. Per psi wise, will this product be competitive with other stage 3 kits such as offerings from Speedtech and Bigboost?

That’s what he claims! We will see. I’m hoping at least compare with pure stage 2 as this comes with no downpipe allowing you to go factory which is a plus plus. Speed and Big come with downpipes. Non catted down pipes that is.
I am hoping they come out with this for the f30 sometime within Their stated “Q4 last 3 months of this year.”

Man I just hate the restricted high back pressure tiny stock manifold and turbo setup.
