RET first custom single turbo kit
Seeing as how the OP hasn't posted anything in regards to specifics surrounding this kit at all... I fail to see how anyone can make that comparison?
If you want apples to apples... you should find out what apples RET has, instead of looking at a couple pics and knowing nothing about the build. We have no idea what fuel solution is being used, tuning, supporting mods, etc... As far as I know the west coast guys don't have many other options to begin with, and starting $1500 less than your next closest competition isn't a bad start, as long as the product is comparable or at least worth the convenience. Maybe RET has a weekend turnaround time? Maybe they jigged up a couple kits off of this truck and they hammer out the work?
Lets see what the truck does and get a parts list before we bash them to pieces. Competition makes a better product for all of us.
Jack, you really took that as bashing? I welcome any and all options out there including your attempt to be economical while hunting for HP. My comments were more made in regards to piping sizing. Limiting factors in power I would certainly think? When I say apples to apples it is because the op stacked it himself in comparison to stage 6. If it was me and I was paying that kind of money for the setup whether its $8,000 or $9,500 I would like the turbo piping to flow aesthetically in the compartment a bit better. I hope my comments aren't taken as bashing because I certainly am not trying to.
