    why? the weekend was supposed to be for initial impressions, then barring any unforseen events a dyno today. that seems like an awful lot of unneccessary work for no reason

    seriously?? Appointment was made for the dyno today. If anything, go through with the dyno then do it again with the stockers after. Dont postpone this dyno just to have to wait to install stock ones again....then reinstall the stage 1's again Click here to enlarge

    THIRD time explaining this now. I ordered custome 14T wheels to elominate the bushing altogether. As a curtosey to the customer I am going to put stock turbos on his car so he can drive it. This will be a good time to get a baseline. If that's not clear, not sure what else I can say. Signing off from the forums til I'm back in Cali.

    I honestly did not see anything about canceling for custom wheels. May have to do with the 6 threads on these turbos.....

    He's replacing the bushings with a custom wheel to eliminate the bushing altogether.

    Exactly and he deserves a lot of credit for that and really Rob should be thanking him. But sometimes LM's his loyalty blinds him.

    riiiiiight.. i have blind loyalty.. or is it that im more interested hearing factual updates and information..

    Im not the only one that thought a dyno was today. the last we heard was tester would have his car over the weekend and weds dyno, but now he never actually recieved the car. I must have missed that update.I guess we were ALL wrong, we ALL mis-understood, and mis-read.. Ill go now, patiently awaiting the results that im sure will be spectular, when they do come around, whenever that may be..hopefully sooner than later

    I didn't say blind loyalty I said loyalty can blind you. It's a big difference.

    those post basically say he is waiting for the custom wheel before install/dyno.
    Here are the updates you missed because there are about 1 billion Vargas turbo threads and it's impossible to keep up with them all.

    There's so many damn threads not surprising people missed it. I think im the only one who caught it.

    and LM i def follow what you are saying with the dyno but I just think for the first comparison that many will base there purchase off of a 18 psi run on stockers vs stage 1s is the best approach.

    Honestly, none of this offends me. You guys can feel free to entertain yourselves with back and forth and say what you like. I have been reading other threads and this seems like standard issue. Vendor announces product, people get excited, then people get restless and start bashing, questioning, complaining. Bottomline is, I am not putting out a product til I feel it is ready. So until then be patient or don't. Flame me or don't. In the end I started this project cause its a cool platform and I want to bring some products to the table I felt would be a benefit. If you disagree or don't like it. Hey, that's your opinion. I appreciate all the interest positive or negitive. But in the grand scheme of things, they are going to be ready when they are ready. Everyone have a good night.

    BMW 335 owners act like spoiled children and need to be spanked from time to time. They will cry throwing hissy fits until they get what they want don't worry about it and just focus on handling your business.
