When driven the same (most dont with the improed performance) we see 1-3 mpg improvement.

Shipped the rest of the first 20 today so all that were in the first 20 (I think one got damaged so maybe 19) yours should be on the way, and cores are coming back in fast! (thank all who are sending them back asap) so expect more soon.

You're right about that! Today was my first "whole" day driving around with this part on. My 260 lb boss rode with me, and he likes fast things, so I wanted to entertain him. Even with him in the car, it was a lot more fun to drive. As a result, I'm sure not seeing any better mileage, but the potential is there.

Ok, I have a couple questions regarding mod process as i dont remember seeing any mention of it. I would like to know if the mods are done by hand(power tools) or are they done by machine only, or is it a combination of the two. Is each one tested before shipped to Rx, basically i am asking do they validate that number 15 off the line is producing the same results as the beta as well as number 150 will and so forth ?

My understanding is that the process is performed on a CNC machine guided by a computer program. Such a device is used for mass production work and is capable of reproducing the same exact shape/cuts for many, many times in a row.

I can't vouch for QC inspection afterwards, but I doubt there's much that could be measured/checked, etc.

All tested and guaranteed, and all CNC cut on a 3 axis machine so duplicated on every unit. Something hand porting can never do, and the key is the patternm or texture cut.

A quote from Rottler the CNC machine company just patented their software to cut similar:

"Improvements keep coming on Rottler's P69. Kiebler said the focus is on software. Software will make or break a machineing center. In addition to allowing operators to learn the software in a matter of 4 hours, he noted the P69's capability to "dimple" an intake port. Dimpling a golf ball makes it fly farther due to less wind resistance, and the same theory can be applied to a port."

This is what Vmax has been doing for the past 9 or so years in these designs. Breaking the surface tension to reduce turbulence and increase velocity is the key to out performing and high polished hand ported surface and the CNC cuts and specific patterns make the VMax unlike anything out there.

I must ask these questions:
How do I know when to expect shipment of my PTB?
The order receipt states "Order Number: 273". Does that mean PTB #273 has my name on it?
Will there be a notification when the PTB is shipped?

I know y'all are very busy and pushing these things out a quickly as possible, but I'm just curious... I'm sure others are too. Thanks.

Just got it installed. Took about 15 min at the most. WOW!!!! I'm very impressed with this mod. The dead spot is gone, and it wants to pull in every gear. In tap shift mode it was fun to drive before, but now it's amazing! All I have is solo exhaust with j pipes, I can't wait to get a CAI. Great job guys!!!
