Default VTT/VPG Announcement: GC Release & Updates - 05-24-2016, 11:53 PM

Hey Everyone,

It’s about time for some exciting announcements from VTT. This has been a long time coming! As most of you know, I've taken over online representation for Vargas (mostly... he still posts here some) -but that's not the only thing I do for fun.

The overarching announcement is that VTT is now one piece of a bigger group; Vargas Performance Group, or VPG. There are 3 major parts of VPG:

1: VTT (Vargas Turbocharger Technologies): Turbocharger Manufacture/Repair/Upgrades/Sales
2: VPP (Vargas Performance Products): Performance Parts Manufacture/Sales
3: VHP (Vargas Hi Performance): Turbocharger & Performance Parts Installation/Service

I’ll quickly go over some announcements as they pertain to each category:

VTT NEWS

GC's: This is the one many of you have been waiting for. You know the ones -the stock location twin turbo setup that made 736 whp. Just look at the power under the curve! Street spool will be even better! The VTT GC’s have started arriving at VTT headquarters and the first sets have already shipped. We expect a second shipment shortly and the remainder of them by the first week in June. The plan is to quickly get caught up on all existing orders and soon after be in a position such that they are available for same day shipping. Note for those who got the ceramic coating; as of this week, it’s adding around a week to the ship date.

Bundles: GC’s can now be bundled with installation ($1000 for inst. labor at VHP, more on that later) and/or a tune (see website for details).

93 Octane Testing: I know there are some unfortunate souls out there who don't have access to E85 and for whatever reason don't want to use methanol. For them, we WILL be doing some pump gas testing. Expect this late 2nd quarter/very early 3rd quarter (read that: around July). I don't even want to speculate on dyno numbers -we'll find out while testing and post those results.

VPP NEWS

Vargas Performance Products. These are all teasers -think of this post as a quick look into the VPP crystal ball looking forward. Here is one thing in the works for VPP and one thing we're just too excited about not to share:

Line Lock Kit: Here are a couple development pics posted down below -not final config by any means. This will fit all E9X and E8X, not sure about 535's or Z4's -we'll be looking for testers for those.

Transmission Fun: By now everyone and their grandmother has heard the awesome news about Nizpro and the magic they're doing with transmissions. We're working directly with them and will have one the first fully built and flashed transmissions from them. While this (obviously) isn't a VPP product, we're very excited about this and have some high hopes for this really being a huge jump forward for the platform.

VHP NEWS

Wouldn't you rather have your turbos installed by the same guys who made them? A shop that understands turbos and has 100+ installs under their belts? If you're within driving distance of Hayward, CA, you can buy turbos, schedule an install, and have VHP install them for $1000 labor. Of course you still need to buy your gaskets (we have an installation kit for $230) and do an oil change while you're there, but it makes for a pretty good deal -especially after the GC's are in stock and available same-day.

OTHER STUFF

Expect more updates with more products, more accurate ship-by dates and more options for everyone.

And I'm just getting started...

Chris

Well done Chris, on a serious note how long before these items are available to ship, ie. Line lock kit.

Those products are still in development -meaning, things are going well (or we wouldn't have announced the teaser) but until we finish development any date I give you would just be a guess. Being as you're asking me for a guess, I'd feel comfortable stating 3rd quarter 2016 for a fairly low-risk estimation. Price hasn't been determined yet -will depend on final configuration.

Quick Update!

GC's are shipping, and if you were one of the few that ordered ceramic coated GC's... they're very pretty. Take a look below!

On other fronts, product development is going very well. Look for a Line Lock Group Buy thread soon.

Here is a teaser for what we're working on now! It's an add-on oil cooler (keep your oem one!). Target price $799.

Little update; Tony took the car to the track for some shakedown runs. Tuning isn't there yet -running 27 psi and 8* of timing. Still some solid trap speeds. 10.8 @ 132 and 11.2 @ 135 is hauling. Just wait until we get the transmission and tuning squared away...

I haven't seen their kit in person, but it should fit any brake kit as they all use the same sized lines. The line lock is just solenoid that goes in series in the brake line. Doesn't affect brake hardware.

As long as the fittings to the caliper are the same, it should work, but we'd need to test fit. There is a group buy post in the for-sale section where I mention that we're open to a tester or two for BBK's. Or to argue about shipping, lol.

How did the lvl10 like the power? Seems like some say it's great, some say it blows massive c0ck...

Also- for some reason I always remember DZ @ PTF tuning for you guys, has he moved completely over to Porsche stuff?

It wasn't perfect. Hoping that the work that NIZPRO does takes it the rest of the way. The auto def gets cranky at the higher horsepower levels, nothing new there.

Not sure on DZ, I think he's been very busy in development, I didn't ask Tony about the tuning end of things.
