Word has it, Tom makes the best. Cant wait till I have mine. Like Seb said, many sad storys about Gude, and I havent heard anything about Precision, so I'm curious as to if it sucks or what not. There's also the f-max kit and the Pectal kit, which I have heard nothing on.

does any one have quarter times on toms kit? not the outrageously high amount of boosted times either. i am thinking from around 9-12 psi something you could see on the street possibly.

With the whole fuel management issue, why don't you just buy a 70mm MAF, bigger injectors, a chip, and get it properly tuned at a dyno shop? That'd take care of the whole kit problem; years ago people used to machine their own cams, and hope for the best. Now, if a kit doesn't come with everything and then some, its a piece of crap. An uncontrolled turbo, blower, anything will grenade an engine, no matter who makes it. If you buy a kit without everything, then buy the rest too! Building a reliable turbo motor out of an NA motor isn't easy, regardless. Get the best you can, get it properly tuned, and it'll live forever

"Tom HAS blown an engine or two" ,, Id like to know what engine i have blown?

"Tom doesn't sell a complete "mini" turbo kit",, Yes we know have a STG1 kit it was posted on here some where about it

Flashing the ECU is not the way to go unless it is with the predator so you have some controle , Sending your ECU to some one for a flash will be a wast of time , why not just do the SCT or a chip

Tom
