Tony the troll is at it again. Do you hear that? It's the sound of all your potential customers who will never buy **** from you. Is it true that your dad built up VTT? I'm sure he'd be proud to see you running it into the ground with your childish antics and complete lack of turbo knowledge. I would say to stick with your camera man career, but judging by your career history you can't keep a job with that either. Go back to your own forum where you can remove anyone who calls you out.

I think it's funny you are making fun of car that blew past a 11.0 second 1/4 car. He raced a modded GT3 RS Porsche and his car is not even dialed in and doesn't even have port injection on it....yet beats a car that runs better times than any stage 2+ car....hmmmmm....interesting.

oil drain is nothing to mess with, if I had stock frames I would 100% have these

How about another guy Tony? Honestly I was going to let it go since every time I post fact about VTT turbos and fangirls from other site would neg rep and shut me down. You even went out of your way and removed my account from posting. Pathetic.

Here are the pics of the rear VTT OEM replacement turbo that didn't last even more than 3k miles. The tech tried to clean it so hard and you could see in 2nd pic there's still built up there which means the turbo was leaking slowly and building it up. I bought the m4 back in October thus the reason I didn't drive the n54 more often. If i was, the rear turbo was probably would have failed even sooner. The front turbo looks normal so don't even try playing the tuner card.

I understand all turbos could fail due to defects. But how you treat your customer and communicate with them appropriately is taking an educated person to do so. Obviously you have none. You called your customer a troll while your customer didn't manipulate/post untruth things. And oh yeah, I didn't replace used turbos so don't fantasize yourself on the other site that I ended up with used turbos. You posted untruth things on the internet then lock/remove people accounts that would give them a chance to reply, that's childish.

Rob, sorry to post this one on your thread. I would have signed up for these if you had them a month ago. Got turbos replaced.

I have more pics if anyone would like to see them.

Tony, I like your products and I've bought from you. But you totally **** on Robs thread. There are better ways to do it man.

Even if there is no actual performance increase, this can be seen as a preventative thing.

Rob thank you for creating this and innovating for the n54 community. Not everyone thinks your doing this to line your pockets or sell snake oil.

Rob,

Given the hose and connection style, would you recommend securing these with oetiker clamps? I would rather avoid worm clamps for this piece to eliminate any possible damage to the hose.

They will come with spring band style clamps, but the end user can replace with whichever clamps they feel most comfortable with and have the tooling to accommodate.

When the guy building your turbos says his tools do not need to be calibrated you should be all very very afraid. Having someone come in and calibrate or sending the tools out for calibration is not that expensive at all. I bet tony drops torque wrenches on the ground and leaves them set when he puts them away to boot.

seriously like who would admit they don't calibrate their tools...

Not sure how his inlets are poor fitting. I have the 2" inlets on my stock turbos and they fit fine, not to mention they work great. If you have any doubts go to BB and watch my kill videos against an ESS 625 M3 and a F80 M3 with tune, ********* and race gas.

Odd that only his turbos have oil/drain issues. If the drains were kinked and flow was hindered in any way we would all be smoking 24/7/365 from the oil backing up.
First his PVC was the solution now a few years later its the oil drains. Amazing.
Have you even finshied producing your mythical
Inlets yet before you began another groupbuy?
Or was the plan to just keep sucking as much money as possible before anyone noticed?
Hey Tony,
VTT is the company that takes customers money for products that don't exist. Stage3 kits, shotgun hpfps ring any bells? Nice try tho.

Rob, put me on the list.
Thanks

You've been added.

For anyone else interested in these and want anymore pictures, data, measurements, etc.; let me know.

Also just a reminder that we have 50 sets of these being machined now (this is happening regardless of GB), they will need then be welded, and then finally anodized; before we can finally ship. We expect this to be about 2 weeks.

Rob

You must have qualified for the free update! Or recieved a revised set. There are several documented cases where shops refused to install them because they did not fit securely.

You may want to keep an eye on them. If one comes off/loose and sucks something up, it will be time for a new turbo.

Regardless, nice kills!

Thank you but I can assure you it wasn't the revised set. It was the 2" version.

If i was paying for new turbos, I'd install new oil drain lines for peace of mind and I would buy these over the OEM units. Ask trickcruiser what happened to his oil drain line on rear turbo..

Nice job Rob, if I wasn't chasing this smoking issue I'd definitely be interested in this.. I remember back in my JDM days I had a fully built low compression ITR motor that was boosted and my turbo's drain was severely close to being clogged as it got kinked somehow and I didn't realize it right away.. I eventually fixed the issue, but I can def vouch that a poorly flowing drain will hinder turbo performance significantly..!
