stay with stock turbos then. no point of getting upgraded turbos if you are not gonna push them. go FBO and e85 with an inline pump and you'll be happy.

There should be plenty of used RB's coming up for sale soon, we have received four emails in the past 3 days of people wanting to trade in RB's for Stage 2 or 2+. We do not accept RB's in trade, as we have no use for them, so we advised the people to sell them on the forums. To the person above saying there is only one proven option. Our turbos actually hold the stock frame power records, and are near 100% success rate at the moment. Take a look at this thread, to see what you may be getting yourself into, before going with either brand.

Pretty ironic that we had 2 of your customers contacting us and claim to be canceling on you (ONLY yesterday) and order from us, since you have not shipped anything on months on end. Nice trying to charge one a 20% cancellation fee as well.

Also pretty funny how you like to claim you are batting 1000% without swinging the bat, once you finally do you will see your perceived success begin to plummet with time and experiences. In the meantime, keep taking orders and not shipping (to anyone)…

After years of throwing stones you would probably figure out that it is best not to do it from a glass house, but nope, still the same ole guy pulling the same ole stunts oblivious to those things going on in his own home turf.

OP, buy whichever setup you want, just be advised that VTT customers are not getting any products. Find a set that has shipped to anyone who has paid prior to an April order submission date and we will eat crow, as we know for certain he is giving at least one person the run around from a set ordered that far back… and another international guy who has been waiting a claimed 8 months for his 2+ as well.

So in short the VTT strategy: Don't ship anything and claim no problems- well played.

Rob

Huh,

We have no cancelled orders Rob. So not sure who they might be. No one is cancelling on you, at least no orders we have received. These are people who already own RB's, and are trying to dump them before they break. I mean unless you want to tell people they are not breaking. I already tried to get you to elaborate on this mystery "machining error" since you do not machine anything to do with oiling. We got crickets. Now its being pointed out as a problem with the billet wheels? I also asked you to elaborate on that, as well. Again crickets. A wheel problem would show itself instantly on the balancer. Bottom line, for whatever reason, RB's are failing, and they are failing at a very high rate at the moment. On the other hand, our turbos, are at near zero failure rate. It is also worth noting, the customers I am reading about are on second, third sets. This means they sent them back, you "fixed" them, and they failed again in short order. Does this mean, you actually have no idea why they are failing? If you did, why would you continue to send out turbos to people that are failing in in their words not mine, 500 miles. I think your time would be better served to get off the forums, and figure out why your turbos are failing at such a high rate, rather than trying to argue with me. Ok off to work. Cheers bud.

Ps. We shipped 3 Stage 2+ last week, and 5-6 more are slated for this week, rinse, and repeat til all orders are out the door. We were simply waiting on housings, they have arrived. We do not hide behind BS like you do Rob. So yes our strategy is, ship, and have turbos that do not break. Crazy I know!

You are delusional and a waste of time. We have too many orders to fill ourselves to waste time on your antics.

Tony. Great all is going perfectly for you. This means you have no reason to spend all day on the forums bashing anyone you can find to do as such, and simply let your products successes sell themselves as you efficiently utilize your time getting them shipped. We do the same, and find we are overwhelmed with orders coming in and welcome any orders going your way...

Pick up a set of used RBs- pay to have them rebuilt and upgraded to your liking, and enjoy the power

I am very happy with the customer service from Rob, my RB turbos and the overall build quality. I ordered inlets from Tony and reached out for assistance and all I got back was basically a middle finger telling me to take it to someone that knows what they are doing. I installed the RBs myself and dropped the subframe and they have been going strong for 1,000 miles, I think I know what I am doing. The fact that Tony would not even answer whether I should remove the rear inlet bracket or not shows that he does not care about the consumer.

So find some RBs, send them to Rob and have him refurbish them with new wheels and turbine clipping. You will be very happy.

I really wish it were possible for a thread to come up about aftermarket turbos without the two of you going at it. From what I've seen you've both had your issues and you're damn lucky there isn't another company who really has their act together because you'd both be SOL.

Pure stage 2 for the N54 is pretty close as well. They are also making some big strides on the N55 and new M3/M4 platform.

We will say this: "Pure Turbo" operates with integrity and we will not be surprised to see them do very well. They have our utmost respect and we hope to see them do well.

Odd how none of your customers come in here mentioning that they have VTT turbos in reference to how you are selling so many Tony. Also since there are so many new sets of your turbos out there and none of your customers say to buy VTT?

We know for a fact that he has orders still not shipped to customers from mid April, so yes it would be nice to find out how many he has shipped this year compared to our ~75 sets (Jan 1 to present)… doubtful you could ever get an honest answer though.

His customers did decide to stay with him though due to another promise of a this week shipment. Either way, and as stated prior, it seems like he pretends to bat a thousand without ever swinging the bat. If you don't stick your neck out it is hard to get it lopped off.
