I'm thinking there is some subtle difference that could affect interference elsewhere (ie. AC line interference). It may not apply to our inlets and fitment could be AOK, but we simply will not know until it is tried. What we do know is that the turbos, engine, transmission, and air box are all the same. This means that outside of some subtle interference possibility, they will work.

Yes, shipping includes the package for the kit as you will order it. Keeping it simple is a priority, and on that note flat shipping rates have been provided for the options that will be offered.

Like all of the others, these are simple tubes that will flow much better than stock and allow turbos to breathe. All information on their sizing has been provided. If you would like to wait until more data is shown let me know and will remove you from GB.

Thanks,
Rob

If I'm correct, VTT inlets inner diameter is 3" and RB one is 2.5", I'm curious to see the flow differences between both set, if bigger is always better or not , speaking about flowing.

You are not correct about the dimensions, but really do not want to focus too much on the other products. Ours are 2.25" at the air box (which fits perfectly) and taper to 1.75" at the turbo (which fits perfectly).

What you should know is that we have designed these to be the biggest diameter possible tapering down as necessary with the straightest flow path possible while having the best fitment possible; all while being provisioned for every possible desire for the masses. In our opinion these were designed from the ground up to be the ultimate "set of tubes" for all stock frame (non 2+ style) turbos.

To all others who are 5 series AND ready to pay once we get a confirmed sample, please post up and let me know so that we can edit you as 5 series. We will probably try to get a set to a 5 series guy willing to take the risk asap to see if they fit correctly, leaving others to wait and see how their results go. Some may decide to assume the risk and make the purchase, however we can not make any guarantees without the test fitting. We will just keep this list for those who are eligible for the GB costs pending fitment results, to be purchased at a later date. We also found that the air box is all the same part number, so we do feel these will still work… but there is something different yet about the inlets and it could be just something that does not apply to our silicone inlets.

Thanks,
Rob

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR THE 5 Series guys:

Doing some last minute due diligence we have found that the OEM inlets for the 5 series show a different part number. What this means about fitment of these inlets on a 5 series leaves us uncertain. Obviously a test fitment will be necessary to make any further confirmations. Hopefully this list does not contain many 5 series customers otherwise there could be some upsets with pressing forward only to find they do NOT fit. What we do know is that other offerings have claimed theirs fit on all models and thus we suspect ours will the same, but feel that it is worth pointing out now rather than later.

Timmay,

We will be looking for someone who can work very quickly to take control of this for the 5 series guys. Please shoot us an email so we can discuss offline.

Thanks,
Rob

Update: Got the new samples today. Although the front was improved I still do not feel great about it. However I still love the rear and it was a grand slam first try. Go figure the one that we figured would be the hardest was the easiest, and vice versa.

Either way it is looking like our best way to get this done to our liking is to send it revised to our liking back and hope the 3rd time is the charm. This last time we communicated the changes via pictorial/descriptive methods (without sending back a revised sample) in hopes to save time, however that may have been a mistake.

Sorry and thanks for the continued support and patience, but we are going to want to make another update to lock in to only what we are completely happy with here.

Rob

Thanks and agreed. Despite wanting to get these into production asap, we also want these things to be the best we can get them for all of you guys. Depressive morning with the latest upset, but as they say Rome was not built in a day.
