Pure is what I went with. Straight E85, no regrets.

Stay away from vtt , that’s the unique thing you should know about turbos.

I’m on RB Next Gens. For me to get there I would have to add that Fuel-IT Secondary Fuel Line Adapter with Fuel Injectors. Rob is the Damn Man and will listen to your wants and put together a package that matches your Aim.

Good luck w/ your decision.

I’m running pure stage 2 high flows. I was debating between vtt gc lites and pure. I decided on pure based upon reliability overall. It’s been a year and 15k of hard miles and so far no issues.

I'm happy with my current set of VTT GC lites (v1.0) - made 548whp limited by fuel, could probably do 600+ as it sits with more fuel than the TBI. I DD it and have no complaints right now.

That's the first complaint I've seen about Fuel-It customer service.

Not sure it's related to service interaction so much as the customers communication ability and attitude. Maybe English is a second/third+ language but some of their posts are a mess.

Yeah, I hear you - I was pointing that out for the OP.

EDIT: Oh wow, just saw the other market thread he made - what a complete riot.

I’ve had my Pure Stage 2 High Flows for almost 3 years and had zero issues.. I’ve been boosting 27 psi and they’re still running strong..

Good for you. If you can't handle comments like mine, that was pretty reserved considering that thread, then online forums are not for you.
