will you be offering a downpipe option for those that want an open wastegate dump or would the customer have to fab their own?

We will not be offering an open dump as part of the kit. If you get the kit installed in house, we can make special modifications to the system at the customers request.

People were asking about clearance for our lower charge pipe on the e46 turbo kit. Here is a pic showing it sits almost level with the factory undertray.

The angles in the first couple pics were misleading...that doesn't look unreasonable. It would just be something to keep in mind while going over speed bumps.

If you don't hit the factory undertray you shouldn't hit the charge pipe.

I hit the factory under tray sometimes . That charge pipe should never scrape though.

hmmmm my car seems to be just as low as Brians. I do scrape the undertray sometimes over larger speed bumps. Do you guys think i'll have problems at my current ride height?? i've attached a most recent pic of how my car sits in summer mode.

why not build that section of charge pipe from oval tubing? supra guys do it to fit big diameter equivalent exhausts under their cars. The kits are soo expensive, whats a lil more for better ground clearance?

For a customer with a super low car we could always make some tweaks.

oval piping could increase back pressure which isn't something you want in a turbo setup. how much...who knows, could be negligible.

as far as pricing goes, definitely a nice chunk of change but also a significant amount less than a comparable stage 1 HPF kit.

this question may be geared more towards Nick G but perhaps MaxPsi could answer. what components, other than the intake manifold, are you getting versus buying Nick's TT stage 1 kit for the 330? it all appears to be the same hardware, obviously the tuning is still using the DME, so where does the extra $3-4k get made up? not complaining, because this ultimately the kit I'll end up with but just wondering what differs between the two?

The kit may appear to be the same as the technique tuning kit as they both function in same regard, but there are some hardware upgrades that we selected to make with our kit. We are providing a stainless steel tubular header, a tial 44mm waste gate, synapse bov, a precision 6266 turbo to name a few.

that exhaust manifold does look worlds better compared to the cast log manifold from TT or even HPF.

in some pictures you've posted the manifold is powder coated in black as well as a couple of the pipes. is this something every kit will get or is that an option people can choose?

just to confirm, this kit uses a bov, not a diverter valve, right? i ask because in every video, it's been hard to hear it. i also dont think you've ever posted a picture of where it's located. intake manifold, cold side, hot side?

We do use the diverter valve on this kit.

We are coating the manifold with the kit purchase. The coated intake manifold as well as the cold side charge piping are options to the purchaser. We can accommodate any ones needs with color options. Personally, I love the black powder coated option. We can also anodize the intercooler black for a true OE look.

We are unhappy with the boost control on the manifold. We are currently modifying the wastegate tie in. The car will be on the rollers with the modified wastegate tomorrow night!!

The car is running and running very well. The SMG seems very happy with the power. The quick shifts the SMG throws keeps this thing spooled to the max!! It is a very very good feeling.
