I like the kit as a turbo option, and i also like the filter location, may have to do this on my super charger...but I do not like the price tag of $8000

Any fool can look at pictures of the Stage 6 single turbo kit and compare it to this kit and see a huge difference in engineering and quality...I would pay the $9000 for a Stage 6 setup with a smile on my face, but I would not pay $8000 for the RET setup...Its more realistic at $5000 - $6000 price tag...

I just think this is a simple turbo design / kit that will work well, but not on par with other vendors here, and will have power limitations so why the expensive price tag?

It should be more geared to someone who is willing to pay a price in the neighbour hood of a what the supercharger kits are going for...$5000-$6000

Chris you know this is not worth $8000 as a production kit

I'm sure we'll all pass final judgement when we hear dyno numbers.

Imo u cant compare massproduced products to custom made products. Custom will be more and in this case not all that much more.

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.

Anything in particular you think this kit lacks in engineering or quality? I don't know many engineers that make turbo kits for Jeeps, lol, jk

Nothing against S6, they clearly have a strong following, and for good reason, but to make blanket statements about something you know NOTHING about for the sake of bashing another product isn't doing anybody any good. Know how easy it is to put a 4" DP in that truck? Do you also know that most turbos on these trucks don't outflow a 3.5" DP? Other than the DP what else do we know about it?

I also really like the filter location, was wondering how they were going to pull that off.
