Dude.. seriously.. Butter.. keep stirring it slowly. I like it a little under done. Fresh black pepper and fresh sea salt if you want that extra pop.

Don't forget the hot sauce

Either way.. TPC doesn't actually machine and build their turbos. And I'm not a fucking chef.

I'm being told WG is high for the requested PSI.

It's broke yo.
Got the first basemap file but only Final value shows.
Trying to see if it went bad or it's been bad from the beginning.

Typical broken TPC numbers there. There are A LOT of people out there with broken TPC turbos and shit tunes, but just don't know it. You'd probably get walked by a IS38 car with those numbers.

People, don't buy TPC turbos, I'll bet its at least 50% failure rate. If not worse.

There's no way they'd still be in business if it was anywhere near that high... they'd have to be bankrupt by now

You’d be surprised. They hide it all.

I know of at least one well known person around here who had their TPC turbo take out their entire engine, which TPC surprising covered, under the condition neither they or the shop never mentioned anything about the turbo failing...

They just "hide" all their debt from covering turbo and engine repairs on at least 50% of their customers? Someone please teach me this sorcery

What's a good alternative to TPC turbos? Vortex?

I actually asked this in another thread as I'm starting my build in that direction. Vortex, Mamba, Littco, Schuenk, DBV2, Garrett, etc
