Makes sense. I'm learning! So basically I should get rid of my big vgt and get started on switching to a bigger non vgt!

I wish I had a more realistic release date. Unfortunately, we haven't gotten many results from our testers as we would like. We are hoping to have more results by the end of summer. And yes I know, the date keeps getting pushed back more and more and it is very frustrating. We just really want to make sure these new bearings from a new supplier are worth using.

I bought a 1.5 from you a month or so back. But if you wanted testing feedback, I couldíve been your guy lol. I drive and tow about 1500 miles a week on a regular basis. And if you look at our email exchanges, Iím not scared to bother you with questions and info lol.
The 1.5 has been excellent so far!

Thanks guys... we have lots of testers lined up. Just funny how it works. We had only a small batch of the new bearings for testers and sent them out months ago. But everyone has bad luck, blown motor, trans went out, busy at work, etc... and many of the tester turbos were not installed immediately so we have not gotten the results we wanted.

Sadly it is going to be at least a few more months as we wait on results. Realistically we usually wait at least a year... but no one even knows this is happening because we quietly test behind close doors befoe anoucing anything about the turbos to the public. But since everyone knows about the turbo and is so excited... it makes the process much harder.

If you are reading this and are interested in the turbo PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT US asking what the progress is. This is not to be rude... but we literally get 1000s of inquiries every month. Multiple phone calls, pm's and emails all asking for updates (often from the same person). We promise... if/when the turbo is ready to go back on the market we will post it up everywhere for people to see. Thank you for your understanding and continued support. It is our customers that make us who we are and make KC Turbos possible.

, not me! I took the day off the day my 1.5 was set to deliver. Had the stock turbo off that morning and waiting on the UPS man. Had that baby running less than 2 hours later. I donít have the patience to wait when it comes to truck mods!😬😬

And NO we are not just going to be using a 13 blade turbine wheel. It will be a 10 blade turbine wheel but I can't share too many details. We have been having a lot of issues with copy cats and little guys just trying to do the "same thing" for cheaper... we are actually going to stop posting some much info on the forums
Charlie, I know you've had recent supplier issues with bearings, did you ever get anywhere with the quiet version? Really want the best performance for towing if the 2R spools faster than the 1.5, but really want to get rid of the powermax whistle too, it's no fun when trying to be quiet in campgrounds. What's your recommendation at this point, for a 13k 5th wheel? Would possibly do injectors as well, whatever combo is best recommended. 155/30s with a stage 1.5, or 190/30 with a (hopefully quiet) stage 2R.

We plan to have something ready by Jan... but it is going to be radically different. But I am not going into any details at this time. Sorry.
