    Oh the irony. If I remember correctly Tony came into n54 community bashing RBs and stating that they would make a stage 2 setup with more power at a cheaper price. When they were released they did not make as much power as RBs. In case people forgot those were the stage 2 batch one. I am sure mm will go back to the drawing board and make changes just like you did (stage 2 batch 2). People so easily forget where they came from.

    Sub par results? Sure, given the amount of hype MM was putting behind these turbos. That being said, I commend MM Performance for posting some of his preliminary findings even though they were significantly less than what he was expecting. A lot of times people only want to post his/her successes. Is MM on the level of turbo expertise as Rob and Tony, no, but there is no doubting he is extremely bright and motivated. I would never kick a man when he's down, especially after he has put a significant amount of his own money, and time into this. Keep on pressing on Maurico, sometimes it takes a few failures or setbacks before things are perfect. -Dave

    Well if I'm honest, as someone who doesn't get involved with any drama, from my point of view, Tony really gets the short end of the stick 90% of the time. I really don't think people treat him fairly at all, especially considering how much he contributes to the platform. People read words on a screen and they project their own emotion into the words they read. Sure he's seemed abrasive at times in the past, and people hold him to a higher standard since he's a vendor, but he has to put up with so much trash from keyboard warriors who don't have a fraction of the experience or knowledge in this platform. I just don't like hypocracy and people talking sh*t for no reason. It's true that MMP was talking trash about Tony and how much superior his product was. And he's already put his kits up for sale before he's got the bugs worked out. Everybody gave Tony a load of crap for doing that a while back. So when Tony then took a lot of time to get the bugs worked out, people gave him grief for that too. It's a no-win no matter what he did. And now MMP is actively avoiding BimmerBoost so he doesn't look foolish. Then there's Rob who talked an enormous amount of sh*t when Tony came out with his silicone intakes and plans for the silicone hot-side chargepipe. Wouldn't you know it, but then Rob comes out with his Evos and, tadaa... Silicone intake and hot-side chargepiping. I mean come on. Nobody gives Rob that kind of crap for complete hypocracy that they sling at Tony for far less. Really I just think people should show some respect to each other and keep it honest. We all make mistakes. Showing respect for each other, especially those working to advance the platform will go a long way. I mean look at the kind of effort and support Sticky puts into this community. You don't walk into his house and sh*t all over him, but there are users that do that too... OK, that's my heartfelt semi-rant for the month. At the end of the day, all the competition and choice is great for consumers so we should support those that support the community.

    Tried looking for some more info on E90. He said he will post more data later today. Something seems really off with this either he has a hardware issue or the tuning is shit. If he has a significant amount of exhaust reversion it could explain the high boost low flow condition and the back pressure. But I would expect to see that in the fuel mass tables. Will take a look and see if he posted info later. I'm not against this design I don't think it will be a game changer with stock turbine wheel and manifold but we will see. Also MM Performance Your boost creep is because your waste gate is screwing with the P/R on the turbine. Try a divider plate in the downpipe should help.

    Yeah some custom turbos just don't work out. I got a billet TD06SL2 20G from a turbo manufacturer in Taiwan and it is awesome and he got a custom GTX3071R from the same company and it was laggy as shit and wouldn't make power like it should.

    Quoted for truth ;) I didn't even realize Slicksilver/MMP hadn't posted for a while. I don't agree with everything you say but you clearly do know custom hybrid turbos. At the same time, MMP is brand new to this and they may learn from mistakes and get it right. I have no dog in this fight but I think competition is generally a good thing for the consumer. Hopefully it leads to more innovation like the whole inlet thing. I still dont understand how it took so long to realize that when intakes are one of the first upgrades on almost every platform.

    Made a complete fool out of us? Bahahaha. Please, please by all means, lets see these AT LEAST 2 times, we were made fools. I think by complete fool, you would mean, trying to post misinformation to such an extent he was driven from a forum. It was explained to him multiple times, that his turbos would not work, and he could expect around 600WHP, he scoffed, now he has 610WHP. He had to lower his inlet price by almost half as people realized he was selling $100 worth of readily available parts for $450. These results are concrete proof of even with us trying to coach him out of building these the way he did. He thought he knew better, well now he has to eat crow, and try to figure out what went wrong. I know what went wrong, but lets see if he can figure it out. For him to fix it, will mean a MUCH more expensive process for him, meaning his price will go up, meaning his "cheap" kit is not so cheap anymore. Well for what you are getting it became clear today, its not very cheap even as it stands. He made a huge fuss about all the data he was going to collect. Then he went out and bought the absolute cheapest sensors, and data logging system he could find. His Data does not line up at all with known data for this motor. Basically everything he did is moot, from the turbos, to the data. He has to start from scratch, and try to figure this out. We will see if he does, or if his foray into being a home turbo builder, has come to a close, as he is clearly in over his head. Basically, you can make the same power on normal Stage 2's, with proper fueling, and boost for $800 less then his current price, and not move anything around. Oh yeah I almost forgot, that part about him making a fool out of us. Please find, and post, would love to take a gander...:) Cheers!

    MM seems like an honest guy working hard to make a name for himself and move the platform forward. He has made a complete fool out of Vargas at least 2 times that I can remember so this thread comes as no surprise.
