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.

Do you know there are a handful of guys on here who NEED a DP bigger than 3.5"? That's what I'm trying to tell you guys. Need to make more than 800hp, then put a bigger DP in it. No big deal.

Take no offense brother, didn't mean for you to take it that way, but there are a lot of assumptions going on where people are implying that the kit isn't worth it. Nobody can say it isn't worth it. We don't know what it comes with or how much power it is going to make.

I was told S6 uses mild steel in their base kit, I don't know if that is true, but this kit is 100% stainless. I wouldn't even consider mild in a build for myself because I live in the salt belt. It would fall off the truck. After the cost of coating, you're better off going SS to begin with.

RET first custom single turbo kit

I guess when I spoke of the piping and seeing other RET cars run I just assumed they were shooting for huge numbers, I can say I will be watching the street videos for this Jeep!

Yeah man, I guess I'm just saying I'm sure this guy just spent a bunch of money on his truck, we don't have any numbers and a bunch of people are already telling him he should have gone to the forums favorite bandwagon without having anything to base it on.

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.
Take a minute,...take a deep breath,...reach down and untie the knot in your panties...!

I'm not crapping on the kit, I'm crapping at the price of the kit...it lacks the refinement / fit and appearance of kits that exist out there for around the same money...

I'll put it to you this way....If you had $8000 burning a whole in your pocket, but knew you could save a little more in the near future, where would you spend your money?

They are going to have to do a lot of work to gain a following with that starting price with the other options available.

another one of these builds huh??? i think everyone should chill out....maybe do a little research on RET themselves, and still after that wait until the dyno sheets and the track numbers come out for their jeep kit. unless im too drunk to taste this chicken by looking at their actual website....looks like they work on Z06s and ford GTs and shelbys sooooo their jeep kit will probably put down so good numbers. cali is a hell of a lot closer to ship my car then fl.
