This is not a simple kit to build. It requires a lot of pieces to be machined and we refuse to take any shortcuts to speed up the process or sacrifice any quality in it. We are working on the TT kit constantly to have it ready by the end of summer (late September).

Here's a video I made last night on our mill:



Here's a picture of the mold for only one side's manifold, so imagine how much work is involved:

Guys Gintani really is working on this, rest assured. I've seen molds being sent off my own two eyes. They mill a lot of stuff in house too. The car was a beast btw.

What's amazing about this current kit is how linear the power looks. I'm a fan of this, I can't wait to see what it amounts to.

8k3 is correct we both seen the molds in person when we were in SoCal for Bimmerfest 2014 and 8k3 got to go for a ride in the car with Alex there was not enough time for me to go for a ride damn the luck.

you are actually looking at the patterns for the mold



Here's a preview of our inlet turbo inlet piping for one side. Should be posting up some more pictures of the rest.

Can you post some pictures of some prices? It may give some people an idea as to whether they should wait for your kit or just buy an SC kit..

$17-18.8K, this is not set in stone yet. This kit is not meant for everyone, we know it will be an expensive option. The main point of building this kit is for high horsepower builds. Sorry, but this twin turbo kit cannot compete in price with any supercharger kit in the market.

Tuning included? IE What if someone doesnt have a high HP build and wants it?

I would really like to see how much heat this generates on a 20-30 minute track session. Is this an envirnment where you see this bing used? Or is this for the TX2K/Freeway pull crowd?

Yes, tuning is included. I meant to say this is for people who wants to achieve higher horsepower and torque which supercharger kits cannot provide. We have three different sized turbo setups which we will offer. More information will be provided when we are ready to launch.

Seriously chaps, no one else has brought a TT kit that they are willing to warrant to market plus its twin not single so you have to expect a price bump over a SC. Turbo’s are the ultimate in terms of performance, we all know that, I’d love to have it but I doubt I could afford it or at least in the short time im aware of my cashflow, but if I could there would be no question. This will also be available on stock DME with safe levels as has been mentioned on this thread, the equivalent SC yields lower results but for the money is an awesome upgrade. Question is do you want it and can afford it? If the answer is yes we all know you wouldn’t be disappointed. Cheers

Its not suppose to compete in price with supercharger. Turbos never can compare in price. Its mainly about getting the best bang for your buck. I think i can speak for alot when i say what we really want from the e92 is some more low end grunt. The only option was going turbo until harrop came along. If not for harrop, i would have no choice but to turbo the e92 or get a f82. Not trying start a comparison war or anything. Just stating facts
