^^^Eh, I wouldn't worry about the nay-sayers. It's been proven to be a decent turbo and a suitable replacement for the FP Red. Some people don't understand that not everyone can dump $10k into their cars all at once to build the motor, in addition to the turbo upgrade. The butter-zone for these turbos is 22-26 psi, and we're both ~19-20 psi due to a stock bottom end. So, build the motor, turn up the boost, and I'm sure people's opinions will change.

Personally, with larger turbos I think stock trannies will have better longevity (compared to the VFxx turbos) at these power levels due to the smooth power delivery; there isn't a giant torque spike at 3500 rpms.

Also remember that a lot of people dislike AMR's shop, and some of that negativity gets transferred to their parts.
