Exclamation AMR's updated site...

Look under the "products" section. They are offering a twin-turbo setup that sounds very interesting. I like the fact that he mentions Vishnu Performance and even Adam Bloom in a positive manner. He has some insightful info. (most of which alot of us know, but insightful nonetheless), and IMO a very professional stance on aftermarket tuning. Unfortunately, I don't have $6600 to spend right now...
EDIT: the web address for anyone that doesn't know is www.carmodifications.com

Thumbs down

Hope you didn't miss this important point:

"They do not expect to see any turbochargers until March 2001."

Also, do a search on the "Link" ECU system. It's been beaten to death on this board. Otherwise, like you, I like their honesty. Except for the part where they say they're cheaper than the Vishnu, even though it's $600 more!

Anyone know what size those twin turbos are?

Or where to get refurbished turbos, or good cheap new ones?

The turbos they won't see until March 2001 are the turbos used in the single Stage 1 and Stage 2 kits... the twin uses different turbos. Don't tell, but I've been asking...

Has anyone put money down on a TT kit? That's something I'd love to see install pictures of.

Yes, as North Ursalia said the twin turbo's will arrive shortly. They are already taking pre-orders (as of September 15th). But, like I said this doesn't apply to me... not for a long time at least!

FYI, they are using Aerocharger turbos (yes you might have heard of them if you've read Corkey Bells' Maximum Boost) which are supposed to spool up faster and hold boost longer than a standard turbo. Problem is that the Aerocharger turbos aren't very big, hence the TT setup as well as the delay in single turbos (problem in getting ones big enough).
