They release to the public this month. They've been tested on their personal cars so I'm told. More importantly they have a shop,an address a phone and they ship in 1 week $3200 with group buy discount. Need I say more?

$4500 for 6266 BB kit

On par with VM, DR etc. other then those being fit, tested and proven.

That's what I came here to point out. This isn't some ground breaking pricing. A 6266 BB kit from Doc is $5095 and a 6266 BB kit from Arsenal is $4425. You are saving $650 by going with Arsenal.

As someone who's installed a ST I'd say that is yet to be determined. Final cost anyway
They seem legit tho, would love to see a pic of the kit installed on a car.

To be fair, the kit supplied is not 100% comparable.

For your $650 the Doc Race kits include the studs and exhaust gaskets, a heat shield for the valve cover/wiring harness, the adapter which connects the DP to the factory exhaust flange, a turbo blanket and filter element. It does not appear that this kit provides the same stuff.

I am not a DocRace customer, just an interested party like many of you. Comments?

Awww I thought this kit was about a cast Manifold option.

Given the price doc race or acf seems to make much more sense and are well known and reputable. I think they will have to cut their sell price to get much traction.

Be nice to see kits without 2k turbos. Airwerks!

Nobody cares about this kit till someone talks about the group buy. At group buy prices it will make sense.

And who is the idiot to get in on a group buy with no results? Let alone independent results.

The groupbuy price is the deal. It puts a journal bearing turbokit at just a little over 3200. Still waiting for installed pics and test data. Follow them on IG they'll announce the group buy there I'm sure

Not specifically pointing at this kit, but a lot of the single turbo manifolds look as if the wastegate and O2 sensor locations were an afterthought. The manifold design is clean, streamlined and functional and then they were told that they forgot about the WG and O2's so they just slap them on in random locations. They do not look as if they were part of the original design of the part. I guess that a lot of these manifolds were "copied" from similar platforms that may not use O2 sensors, and that may be the cause.

Lol yup.
This looks like complete crap.

You guys love to embrace garbage.
This company/shop looks like a joke from how they positioned the wastegates.
Common sense tells you everything is wrong
