No, don't do that, keep on commenting about things, that's how we learn and get the best information possible. As individuals, we can ascertain whether to take that information at face value or with a grain of salt. All I can say is this, I was tuned by @Hoon for a non EQT hybrid and he provided completely unbiased opinions, actually said that it was a solid little turbo for what its intended use was, and pushed my tune to the maximum of the turbo and the setup that I had. All while hitting a crazy deadline. Keep doing you @Hoon .Where did you see me push Vortex turbos in this thread? I never said a word about any other competing turbo, you decided to make it about that. Cross shopping a Vortex and a S1 Powermax doesn't make sense, they're different products for different customers.
I also didn't say the Powermax was junk, i said they're responsive and spool well, and we have had no issues on the ones we've tuned so far.
There have been some explained (overspinning) as well as some unexplained failures. This has been reported to us by several customers as well as other tuners, but because they were not units we tuned i do not have datalogs or tune details.
I posted that solely for people to make better informed decisions based on the pros/cons of the turbo. You're really reaching on this one.
Clearly, i need to make a Matt @ EQT account, limit the things I comment on and the info i provide.
