2 sets sent out last night. At least 5 sets to ship out tonight. Showering the N54 world with RB Turbos! Those who were shipped have PMs, the others will be notified ASAP.

Still have a couple sets left.

Just got a call, my car is ready for pickup
I wanna take few videos, not even of the car, but mainly for the sound. Good thing I have a good external mic for the camera.

Rob, After the 5 go out tonight, will that put you close to 60 units in the field?

I don't think anything should sound different at idle. Just my opinion. But...it does sound good!

I've never heard my stockers at idle before. In fact!
Here's a video of the same exact car on the same exact spot with same exact exhaust with stock turbos

Good deal! Yeah the sounds does change quite a bit... you can definitely hear the change in tone and hear the turbos much better IMO.

I was a rear wastegate actuator short, so yours didn't go out. I will have to wait until my actuator order comes in before they do. I expect that to be Thursday.

Tracking for the 5 sets sent out today, and the 2 sets sent out yesterday, has all been sent. Still need to get out two more sets, and I think there is a couple more payments in the pipeline. Once those are all through I may have 1-2 sets still up for grabs.

Tracking for the 5 sets has been sent, so if you didn't get tracking yours are one of the two sets that didn't go out. They will go out tomorrow, you will get tracking then.

It appears I have sold 3 more sets, which means I only have 2 left. I can make them in either style.

Let me know if interested ASAP, I'm going to be starting another production run shortly as well.

Rob, can you pm me total cost to get a set of brand new RB Turbos and i know it varies from shop to shop and state to state, but if you have any idea of how much the installation would cost. I already started saving up for it, and it wont be too long till i pull the trigger, and i wont go Single turbo since i do not need way that much power for my DD, Just need to know around how much i need, i guess around 5/6K would get it done. Lol i just answered my own Q! hahaha I'm just hype on saving for these things!

You should be able to get it all done for 5k. That's with install parts and paying 1200-1300 for install. There has got to be some NY shops that have already done this. Look for some of the sponsors here and on other boards that have NY shops. If you don't mind going to philly, VAC motorsports has done it before.

Rob, for road racing is MOTUL 300V 15W-50 Competition Race Oil fine for the RBs?

Oil wise I'd suggest running whatever you have always ran in the engine.

I'm pulling the trigger, I talked to Rob about the install and I'm expecting 12hrs. Can anyone else that has done their own install comment on how long it took them and what slowed them down the most?

I do have access to a full mechanics shop with a 2 post lift and any tool I could want, not ideal since I have to finish in 1 day or leave the car over-night vs doing it at home in my own garage I'm not as rushed. But I suspect the lift is going to make it easier doing it on an XI given I'll be dropping the sub-frame.

2 more sets were shipped yesterday, will send out tracking today.

I have spoke with several folks who claim payment is in the pipeline, and I believe all sets (aside for maybe 1) that are remaining are now sold.

Looks like some orders have been delivered and several more finding their home this week.

A few more sets have sold, will be going out this week.

I do believe I have a single set left still.

There are no longer stock on these. Any orders going forward will have a 6-8 week wait.

are you planning on building up any stock, or just build to order from now on? Still hoping my big summer bonus will come in and I can get 500rwhp going!
