Thanks! Congratulations on winning the shootout! I was watching your last race and wow was it close!

We are incredibly pleased with how well our TT E90 M3 and SC E63 M6 both ran at Shift S3ctor.

Here is a video of our friend driving the TT E90 M3 for a pass. The video is through Instagram:

Lastly, thank you to the gentlemen at Shift S3ctor for putting together another great event. We cannot wait for the next one!
Congrats on the success Alex, Charles, and the rest of Gintani crew. I have videos from the start/finish line. I will get them posted and send you link. Only problem, I might have missed some of your best runs. Sorry about that. But I will give you whatever I have. I think I have 210 runs captured, so it might take some time to go through them all.

Thank you, I hope you had a fun day at the event! Next time, I'll make sure to say hello - I was incredibly drained and not myself on Saturday from a lack of sleep.

I would really appreciate the videos; shoot me an email at charles@gintani.com whenever is convenient for you. I would love to see some video clips as it was very difficult to grab a decent clip from my phone!

That has to be the worst video I ever saw to attempt to show proof of a cars modifications...., about 4 seconds of the car barely moving...
nice crackle and pop's and turbine whine btw...
then about 5 seconds of a car driving so far away you can barely hear it and cant tell how fast it's going...lol

Jesus.... If I wanted to show everyone a new badass turbo setup, I would def shoot a video of the car launching so you can see acceleration and launch speed plus the amazing sound.. not from a mile away lol

Since people wanted videos of our TT, I searched for a video and the one I linked was the only one I found on Instagram. Definitely not the best video, but it is difficult to grab a good one with a mobile phone.

We (Gintani) will have much better videos showing our car released from us and not other people. Thank you.

Guys from a pure commercial standpoint you guy should try to get the word out and kit completed and taking orders before the inline 6 turbo gets out. Even if you are not ready to sell at least you should get an official video with numbers out and estimated cost so that people knows this is for real.

Be patient guys, don't go buy a supercharger!

I disagree. I want a turbo that is reliable without excessive lag while bringing the car to high power. That's what's important. Not making it a frankenstein experiment for the drag strip that end up breaking down after a couple of months. Something akeen of an OEM GT-R turbo design, not some short lived freak show.

Pretty sure there's gonna be a few turbo options, gives you a nice balance between a very wide powerband on a stock motor, and an all out, peak power (low end lag) built motor.

I was there and it was epic to hear in person. Charles was that you doing the revs? If so thanks for the talk.. you and I chatted about the Sport exhaust (that I installed) and the test SC kit at length. You guys do great work.

My boss, Alex, was revving the TT so I believe you spoke with him as I know he can passionately talk forever about these cars! Thank you for the kind words, we are working very hard to pump out the best products we can for the community!

Great seeing you guys at BFest, and great meeting you Charles. Bringing the TT to the track and BFest proves that it's more than just a theoretical project. Glad to see the car coming out to represent!

Agreed, their E63 M6 is no joke as well, I bet at the next airstrip event it hits 170+MPH.

Charles is a solid guy, spoke to him at BF for a bit as well. Keep up the good work!
