sounds good. I'll have to see the car in person sometime. I only thing I find annoying is the oil scavenge pump, but at least you can here it working.

Very nice. The noise is probably the pump.

The car is running on 12# of boost yeah it made 450 rwhp. It was 1 am, and im sure the technicians wanted to get out as much as I did. The car definitely could get a better pull but im not complaining

Because of some of the complications IPS was generous enough to give us the boost controller for free.

tell me what you guys think the noise in this video went on and off. it usually stays on when your idling, the technicians couldn't figure it out.

id say the pros and cons are pretty much the same for any turbo or supercharger kit. pros from my experience with the TT kit so far is turbo lag and just like any FI kit the increased wear on the engine. i love the turbo whistle but unlike a supercharge kit which is always putting wear on your engine, the turbos are only there for when you need it

remove the breather at idle (don't drive) and see if it goes away, you need a lot of evac in these motors

well first, I wish I had gotten the powder coat black instead of polished. and the second video sounds like the oil pump. mine doesn't have a high pitch like that pump but I recognize the sound pattern.
