OMG Schmidty, you read my mind! I was literally just about to post and ask if anyone was running vargas, and why they dont seem to be apart of the conversation (all about pure, speedtech, and bigboost). Following this thread

yeah I found it some what strange that there was no conversation about it. hopefully someone chimes in with some info. I want to get one, but I want dyno info on it first...

Just to keep the thread alive; i reached out to vargas to see if they had any dynos on f30s yet. They just stated that the kit is for pwg, ewg coming in a few weeks. They didnt comment on dyno results yet. Hopefully they get back to me with something and I will share.

hopefully something comes out soon, I have a 2012 335i PWG and emailed Tony on Chris's advice to see if I could give him my car to them and they could get results since they have a dyno. but I haven't gotten a response yet. hopefully they are just too busy to email back

I hear ya. I think most people are trying to compare vtts product to the others that have some results posted on the forum (specifically ps2, bigboost, speedtech). So some 'hard numbers' would be really helpful. I know im intersted because of the manifold, new turbo, and ability to not go straightpipe (speedtech)

So I heard back from VTT that they are waiting on their tester car before posting results. As far as why they javent been in the conversation on here, it seems as if different forums have different people running them and that sometimes plays into the products that are discussed. Which i dont love. Makes me concerned that there isnt a good single place to have an objective discussion abt all the turbo options for N55. Or other aspects of our cars for that matter. *gets off soap box*

The VTT guys and BMS guys get along. There's no reason VTT couldn't post here if they wanted to.

I'm definitely still interested in results. I've got a couple maintenance things to take care of and then I'll start weighing the turbo options.

I bought a Vargas reman stage 1 for my car. It was a worthwhile upgrade for the cost and it lasted 40k miles without issue. I just took it out to swap with a Pure stage 2 and the bearings were still reasonably tight...minimal shaft play.

In other words...solid product.

My n55 GC upgrade has kicked ass since day one and it hasn't given me anything to complain about.
