Jeff,

I'm still waiting to see the results of the L99 dyno... I know you guys are working hard, just impatient is all.

It is getting there. Turbos are on and fuel system is getting done now. If he could stay on it the car would have been up and running right now but we are juggling 25 other projects at the same time -- including a LSx 427 TT Camaro

I agree 100%. Once there are 5-15 kits floating around out there will you see a really solid "Average" that essentially will rule out dyno differences and tuner differences and air temp/humidity etc etc. I am honestly thinking due to our dyno being a bit on the low side our initial #s will end up being conservative if anything

Track times / trap-speeds are even better!

So you are saying you think ou have the most conservative dyno but still make 50 to 100hp more then similar kits at the same boost? Cool, those most be some awesomely large turbos.

I agree MPH in the 1/4 tells a big story - Does anyone know what each MPH works out to be in extra HP?

Not as much "Large" as efficient

I don't think we have the most conservative dyno out there, just in the lower % when you talk about cars getting on a number of different dyno's at different shops around the country.

Add to that the less humid fall air that is right around the corner and the numbers are only going to go up

Not to mention they have to go from your hands to a distributors hands and then to Garrett. $30 to each business and the time it takes to ship them adds up VERY quickly! I'm sure Hellion would also like this category since they are running the Turbonetics units!

You can also note on our section that the kit can come with Turbonetics units as well. We'll put whatever turbocharger the customer wants on it including Garrett.

You should also note what type of gas was used for the dyno numbers.
Sure. I can add a warranty section. I would assume the end-user would be more interested on a "Kit" warranty and not a "Pump" or "Turbo" or "Injector" warranty but I can add in either way. Good idea

I think I just said "Pump" gas even though that varies depending on what part of the country you are at.

Goes to WHO is doing the warranty. The kit builder or each component manufacturer

Obviously.

I will post my "IPS" warranty that covers every single piece or part included in our kit once they are ready to ship out. If you are not going to include a "Kit" warranty and instead just fall back on the manufacturer of each kit component it tends to generate a lot of finger-pointing if/when something does go wrong.

We have found that when you use the absolute best components the probability of "Early" failure is extremely low.

If it is my kit they are MV-R's. I will update the chart this week to get that corrected

Do these system retain the stock exhaust manifolds or use headers? Hellion has been grabbing my attention as of late.
