Turbo system demand? <<Dezod>>

Is there really a demand for a turbo kit to be produced for this forum?

THIS GUY!!!!! i've been after u on facebook forever, especially after seeing the system you have been working on and how nice it fits!
that would be the PERFECT match with your v2 aem.
you have the customer service, quality, and price people love. so i'm sure there would be plenty of demand for a good product. reputation is key.
*1 vote from this guy* lol

plus, i'd much rather parts say Dezod across them, then that crappy SRT intake. or there intercoolers and everything else.

I'd say document the kit like Arma did for the IS250. But there is a larger market with the IS300. As long as its cheaper than SRT I'm sure people would buy it.

I would be especially if it included one of the garrett midsized BB turbos(30-35) I often wonder why some people shooting for 400whp(or less) get large journal bearing turbos capable of 650+ whp, I prefer a smaller turbo with a better spool and power curve

'01 ASP 17x8 ssr comps 225/45 all around, LS400 bbk, FX-R 3.0 projector retrofit in JDM headlights, Modellista front, c-speed sides/rear, Rigid Bars, Hotchkis sways(stiff), Konis & eibach prokit, PLP intake tube & K&N filter, JIC Ti axleback w/ custom midpipe...more to come ;)

I think there would be a pretty decent demand for one. Many people are still getting the SRT kit, which isn't amazing IMO.

If we could have a kit that has the choice between a few different turbos: BW 83-75, Precision 6262/6766, Garrett GT35R that would be sweet.

Along with the choice of blow off valve and wastegate.

Choice of Engine management would be nice also. hahahah

I am in the market for a turbo setup. I plan on pricing it this summer after I install cams. I think that the is300 is becoming more popular and in demand because the price of the cars are cheap. SRT will not get my business and neither will PFS.

I think you might be onto something here.

I'd be interested down the road.

As much as I'd love to buy an SRT or boost logic kit for ease of mind, $6000 is too much. A lower priced option would fit with a lot of people in my opinion.

there will always be a demand. the problem is are you willing to be there to help the customers out if questions arise. that i believe is the biggest issue especially with co. like SRT and such... If you are there for yopur customers they will be there for you. Just my humble opinion. Good luck either way.
