Me too -- without that restriction the power ramps up much sharper for sure.

Moral of the story: It is well-worth the money to spring for a 3" cat-back if you have a 600whp FI car

Power numbers look great! I can't wait to see what the M6 car does. You guys are going to make me swap my single turbo for twins!

Hope you can answer this one.

Sorry about that. We have done very little in the past (Supplying tunes with our kits) but we can make a "Base" tune available with kits for sure. I am a HUGE proponent of having the car tuned by a reputable shop as opposed to a "Mail-order" type of tune but for instances like you described I understand the need.

Awesome numbers Jeff!! Not sure if you missed this question that I asked before, but can you upgrade the turbos in the future to the billet/HTA Garrett turbos without much problem or fabrication? Could you just swap the turbos, upsize the downpipe, tune it and be done? Also, have you done any kits with the NPP exhaust? I have that exhaust on my '13 and wondered how restrictive it is. Thanks and great job!

ETMC is a bit of a drive but Stephen is the only one I would trust tuning my car.

Here is the over-lay with and without the stock exhaust:

How much boost?

You can upgrade, but there are more pieces than just the turbos that need to be changed...

I know you will use most of the same cold side but all of the hot side will change.

Long story short, upgrade is possible.

I think it was 9 psi, but Jeff would know better than me. I haven't been up to the shop for a couple of days.

Thanks Mark! I appreciate it. I wonder how hard the "entry level" turbos could be pushed before being out of their effeciency range.
