In the original post, you said

When questioned about that dyno sheet and the setup which garnered those results, you said



Later in same thread you posted



So if you're posting the same dyno as a system you guys were testing a week ago, you're alluding to the fact that this setup is for sale. Given that, what do you guys classify as "long-term"???

You guys aren't doing yourselves any favors by misleading customers like that.
There is nothing misleading here.. We were testing this blower against a couple other test units we received and we have chosen to go with the rotrex.


The stage 1 and stage 2 will be ready in about 2-3 weeks. I will be doing doing a full write up with new prices and all shortly.

+1
Long term is a couple weeks/months worth of testing, if nothing blows up then it should be good to go

The other question you didn't answer: what do you guys classify as "long-term"?

Stage 3 is the only one still under testing the other two kits are basically ready to go and running 100% perfect.


We will be running stage 3 at the drift track this weekend so stay tuned.

Thanks Boss. Using the iPhone app and there isn't a search feature. I scrolled endlessly through posts before I posted the question...not that I owe you an explanation.

You guys have been testing the 91 trim for 3 weeks and feel that you've done sufficient testing to release the Level 1 and 2 kits, correct? Are the hp figures represented in the dyno the same, or will there be variance when the kits are released?

Its a 92 trim that we have been using which is basically a 91 with a larger housing. Switching over to the Rotrex is not as complicated as you make it seem since we have been testing it on our other car for awhile now. Not to mention we have had a supercharger kit for the E9X M3 for about 4 years.

You should see a little more power from the stage 1 when on stock sized wheels but the stage 2 is spot on.


Are you supercharged?

Are you supercharged?

Nope, shopping ATM. Prior to making the purchase, I'm doing my due diligence.

whats77inaname,

He never mentioned they are for sale yet...he just said to come check them out as the potential customer, can get into their potential kit let alone anyone else. Who would have thought inviting someone to see a sneak preview would turn into quoting match. Maybe that user would post his personal experience...instead of letting Andrew do all the talking.

When was the last time you heard someone say they have a brand new range of something for you w/out it being on available? *lol* By posting dynos of the kit and saying to come and check it out, he's implying that it is available. As a customer, that's how I see that.

I clearly stated our generation 2 kit will be available in 2-3 weeks. What is the problem here?
