    I and im sure others look forward to those results.

    My 1 issue with the c39 it makes full boost a 3.5krpm but theres like a lag or something. The car just doesnt pull until much later in the power band. I race a random 370z with unknown mods and i destroy it by 2 cars though.

    I was going to get it tuned by you but i rather wait and get a different turbo 1st.

    And SS you shouldn't be calling your own customers cheap just cuz of your beef with adam. I wouldnt have to defend myself and talk crap back

    Thanks for pointing out the differences in price/power.

    It's one thing to say that X is the best but another to point out what will work with your goals and a budget of Y. Not everyone can afford to throw $4,000 into a turbo setup for a sub $25,000 car.

    Take my GT2554R for example, I know it's not the best, quickest spooling or highest power range turbo but I got it for a steal of a price from a local member, so I'm making the best of my budget.

    The C39 hits full boost much sooner than that from the 3 that i have tuned. 3100-3200rpm in 3rd, in 4th its 2900rpm.

    As for @Sourskittle i hope thats not what he is doing. We just hit our 300th ST tune and love every one of our customers just as if they where some off our big power builds. Right now i have @Pete in the shop doing a tear down for his new engine build that will have a x47 on it. All i can do is give our data and tell people what the difference between things are and recommend the best application. I have always learned if some buys something and they are not happy they will buy something else. So for those that get something like our ST280 or x47 and want more they will sell their old turbo and step up to the next level.

    Did any of those have a ported manifold and/or had a turbosmart iwg. I was using ss custom iwg
    And whats your definition of full boost? I seen people with different opinions. I do hit 20 psi a little sooner than 3.5k rpm. 25psi at 3.5k

    Hi Tony, welcome to the forums. Let me ask you something that i think a lot of people on here are curious about. The impression many of us have had for a long time is that the x-37 pushed the stock turbo to the limit, and anything more is not going to be reliable. Most people on here care a great deal about their car and thus are a little skeptical/hesitant to pull the trigger on the new x-47. Could you speak a little bit to the testing you did and perhaps the reliability that you expect?

    Hey Tony, glad you're here.

    Just want to let you know that I had a coolant leak from a casting flaw in the compressor housing which required me to pay to have my x-37 removed and new, stronger, bolts and crush washers installed to solve the problem. Someone told me that the housing isn't OEM, but came from China, but I have no idea whether that's true or not. For people who are their own mechanics this might be a minor problem, but as an ordinary customer, this became a major inconvenience and cost me some $$$.

    Perhaps it would be helpful, given all the interest that the x-47 is generating, for you to spell out exactly what warranties apply to US customers and what exactly Pumaspeed will do in case of a problem such as I had.

    Just to be clear: this isn't a case of sour grapes, I did pay to have the defect corrected and am really happy with the car as it stands (with your x-37, Quaife & accompanying mods the car runs great and is a blast to drive). I just think that it's really important for people to know, before buying, what support they can expect if something goes wrong.
