This is just like the guys at AA posting up a picture of a motor saying it made 1000hp and the engine never saw the engine dyno.

Was only a matter of time before some just came out and said it.

I have faith Gintani and Harrop will both come through come October just in time for Halloween to help create M's to scare all the kids.

I'm not sure how its gone unsaid this far. I suppose you can get warnings and/or banned for stating the truth here of late. I've yet to be disciplined, but if I should be some day it'll just give me a couple hours of my life back each day normally spent reading mostly nonsense. :
If others can be hit with points, or whatever the Internet wrist slapping punishment of choice is, it should be vendors posting misinformation. Especially threads like these that have the sole purpose drawing attention to themselves without the intention of accomplishing anything short of generating revenue on a different product. I'm sure people have bought other products as a result of the publicity, and good for Gintani. Just lock this thread already mods, it's going no where. If the kit should ever come to fruition perhaps they can start a thread at that point. They did say their shop car was running for ~6 months right? Not even so much as a short clip to prove that? Really? I'm sure if they do make a TT kit it will have as poor of a fit and finish as their S/C kit. No one will pay top dollar for a kit they won't want to show off for. I know I sure as hell wouldn't.

FwIw! when I had my RS4 most of us waited like a year and a half for a 3" diameter exhaust from JHM. Same kinda thing that is going on here, most of us wished they wouldn't have said anything until they actually had a better plan. If and when this twin turbo setup comes out It will b very cool, ill prob have a mini van by then. If it makes them money this will happen, which gives me time to save up$$

Before hand i Would like to apologize to the OP for the off topic nonsense as this is all I will say,

Soorena i Would love to know how you know this & It doesn't take too much imagination to know you guys are talking about Mike's comments in my build thread " you pom Pom shakers know who you are " With all of this talk of "Mystery X" member etc. For the record, I did not report Mike just as I said I would not. So if you got any other story, especially from Mike himself, that should tell you something about his credibility and how you're being manipulated to come here with false information. I'll give the mods and admins permission to violate my privacy to confirm or deny whether or not my story is true and correct. And yes, I also remember the vendor thread Mike stepped into...and Iknow this vendor reported him.

I actually didn't know anything as it can be seen i added "i guess" to my reply. Truth to be told days ago i was lurking around and saw a not so friendly conversation between you and Mike. A few days after that i found out him Banned. I was misunderstood as it turns out. I apologize for the inconvenience.

And BTW i don't know anything about that "pom pom shakers" and "Mystery X" thing and i don't know who those guys are. As a matter of fact i think i never made a reply in your thread.

Thanks for the replies, guys! Always sorry to hear someone got banned...hopefully it is just temporary. Anyhow, as already said many times, this thread has gotten off topic and has turned not only into a Gintani bashing but plenty of other weird topics also. Hopefully Gintani will start a new thread when their TT kit is ready.
