F2 just stepped up to in my opinion some of the best turbos on the market

Watch the F2 and give it a chance before you make your decision , everyone will tell you to go fs but there decisions are based on it was the only kit out there for some time , the fs turbo guys that have it will say fs but havent tried the f2 so have no idea if the f2 is better or not

I understand , you need to make the decision from what works for you , if thats the fs then so be it , I think the f2 will give the fs a run for its money

Yes they are in the works changing turbo Co and to a better turbo this is good for you ,If you have the time be patient it shouldnt take them long to get it back going again or contact them and ask them for a ETA
