    What makes you think that's possible with the new Vargas turbo? Adam said on their post that they're looking for like 375whp on their most powerful setup. Wouldn't you think it'd be more likely with a big turbo like the one on your car?

    I think the cocern over this void may be premature. Some you guys are acting like dhm was the only place to get stuff done. Livernois in Michigan can do a engine for you or you can buy upgraded internals from Mountune or puma, and any reputable shop can install rods and pistons. The crank is probably good to 400 maybe more. What else did you think Russ was doing sprinkling fairy dust on the motor. We have multiple locations to get multiple types of turbos. We have multiple places to get stuff tuned, like national speed, stratified, JST performance the guy reviewed in the the new ford attack magazine, and that other plus. Guys not to mention all the other places you can take your car to and have the tune done the right way on a dyno. So what exactly is it that Russ was doing that you still can't get done?

    And for all the turbos and engine he was building you had to go their to get it done or spend an ass load in shipping.

    Hell the dealer can rebuild your engine with upgraded parts. You act like he was the only player out here. And once you've done your upgrade unless your ramm audio and your swapping out your gear every month then your done why would you care what is offered to the community. What difference does it make that one company or another builds a car that runs 11.7 secs down the 1/4? In this car that is an extreme circumstance right? It's not a usable car. It's a race car. It almost sounds like your thinking someone is going to build a fiesta st that's the fastest car on the planet. Faster than what a focus st that needs about 4000 worth of work to make 400hp or faster than a focus rs that with about 5000 worth of work makes 500hp?

    Houston, that sucks. I hope it's a non-event to get your money back. Let us know how Paypal handles your issue. I ordered my stage 2 kit in January and received everything by end of May...I also had a C39 kit ordered and am thankful that all fell apart before mine shipped. Russ returned my $$$ on that without issue in early June.

    Why can't someone strive to build a fiesta that can contend in the quarter mile with those vehicles? For some of us this is the car that we can afford and love. I believe a 9 second fiesta is possible albeit extremely expensive ha ha.

    I will keep you posted. Everything with DHM happened so fast and it was unexpected and that itself has me uneasy. Hopefully I can see that money again...
