replied to the thread N55 test car install thread
" If no one can see whats going on here. Let me break it down very simply. The N55 has NEVER been tuned for an upgraded turbo before. Terry spent what, a couple hours on it, threw it on the dyno, and posted a negative report, saying the turbo is no good, it spools slow and makes no power. Imagine if the first time the N54 was tuned for upgraded turbos, a tuner with a negative agenda spent a couple hours on them, posted a dyno and said thats it, thats all these turbos can do, look at that spool, etc etc. (the spool is actually fine, you can see in terrys log is spools right up and the gate opens and slows it down). Just for fun lets take Terry's new ST kit he has been tuning for what 2 weeks now and is still working on wastegate control, boost, spool, etc. First time on the dyno he could barely control the boost, it wouldn't make more than 21 psi, and the numbers were less than stellar. Now imagine Terry had an agenda to make FFTEC look bad because they had a falling out. Instead of him posting those graphs and logs with a hey, were just getting started a lot of work to be done attitude, he posts them with a, well this sure was waste of money, they spool 2000 RPM slower than stage 2 stock frames, and only make 50 more WHP than stage 2 stock frames, what a downgrade! Im pulling this POS kit right now and sending it back.
To be clear, THAT is what is going on here people. The turbo is fine, when is the last time you have seen a new turbo upgrade that has never been tuned before, get thrown on the dyno with a couple hours of tuning and deemed as a failure? NEVER because you would be a fool, its took me and Dzenno 2-3 weeks of street tuning Stage 3 to get it even close to being ready for the first dyno session, with us staying up til 2-3 am many nights. Just sit tight and we will get this thing back and show you what it can do. Terry is only hurting himself because once we do tune it. The Cobb and PTF guys will have a head start and will get the majority of the N55 tuning. As they should anyways. As usual common sense and real thinking will prevail. "
