    I've contacted a couple of well known vendors on other platforms to see if they would be willing to take a look at the 6AT since my project 135i is a 6AT but none have said they would work on it yet. I refuse to pay Level 10 $5k. I'll find someone eventually or I'll drive it till it breaks and pick up another trany and sell it LOL.

    Yes the car is well abused. Click here to enlarge Our office is maybe 2 miles from my house and I have several cars I switch between for driving depending on what I'm working on. But the normal routine for the 135i is to let it warm up in the garage, do a bunch of 1/4 mile blasts in Mexico, and throw it back in the garage.

    I thought LM paid more like $4k and that was for a trans rebuild, plus converter and R&R in-car. IOW, drop off and pick it up later. If I'm correct in my recollection, that's really not that crazy $. Their website lists AODE for stangs for $2500 and most converters are $1200 = $3700 for a high volume platform. So I guess it depends on how much hp each can handle, what parts are used, etc.

    If you want to wrench it in yourself and maybe keep the oem converter if staying under 550whp, perhaps you could get it down to $2500-$3000.

    This thread is exactly why we are working on other options besides the stage 3. We are confident it is going to perform as advertised with the twin GTX's. But people just don't want to spend the kind of money it takes to build a kit like this. I know a lot of people are curious about stage 3, but I am not sure that translates into kit sales. Halfway through the LPFP swap on the test car, clutch comes in tomorrow, prototype should be finalized this week. Lets keep our fingers crossed for firing it up end of next week, or weekend.

    I agree, the stage 3 will act more as a proof of concept than anything though it will be an invaluable accomplishment for this platform. I very much appreciate the pioneering you are doing.

    No Problem, glad to have done it. It is a little frustrating at times, but I am glad we built the kit if it does nothing else then prove the people wrong who claimed to be pioneers in this platform, and said it couldn't be done. We think the magic number for a 600+ HP upgrade for this platform is around $5000. We are working on it.

    Maybe could sell stage 3 with out the turbo for those who want to just get a Chinese turbo. Not saying that I would go this route, but I could see the appeal to treating the turbo as a consumable with minimal worry of destroying them from overspeed and the like.

    The kit would work with plenty of turbo options. We will judge interest once we get it running and go from there. But there are many other irons in the fire at the same time. We are not blind to the needs of the platform and the shortcomings of what is out there now

    All the snarky Shiv bashing is entertaining, but perhaps one reason the kit is slow to move is it is for the AT and so has smaller turbo and lower peak HP. Most have the 6MT and want as much power as possible, this is kind of a very narrow niche product.

    Having said that there is still exactly only one source of a single kit you can buy today right now (FFTEC/Vishnu), and for that matter one source of hybrids (RB). That is changing fast which is good, but the fact that people are coming out of the woodwork claiming to have all kinds of stuff soon to be ready is also a factor in why this is not selling. For the kind of coin this costs it might be prudent to wait and see what some of the proven tuners come out with.

    There have been quite a few big splashy announcements and marketing hype about coming products for our cars that did not amount to much, I hope that is not the case with the latest batch. It is sobering to think that some very competent people have tried this before and failed.

    Back to the FF660 not selling, early adopters of any new technology pay a premium for being first, and always take a bath when they move on to the next big thing. Personally I prefer to wait for the bugs to be worked out of something and buy used from the 2nd wave of people, but that's just me.
