Vargas GC Turbo for N55 EWG

Has anyone tired one yet? Leaning towards it but it's so new, I haven't seen anyone talk about their experience with it.

What are your power goals? The PS3 should be out soon as well so you may want to wait and see how that performs.

I do. I was actually looking at it on your website but I think I might be selling the car.

550-600 without choking the turbo completely. But like I said above, it looks like for my birthday this year I might be trading the car, I don't know yet.

I'm into dig racing more than roll racing and these things can't leave the way I'd like. I have another car in mind although I do love my 1.

Can you point me to anywhere that can give more details on a Pure Stage 3 for the N55? I've seen the photo of the 3D printed prototype manifold, but that was a few years ago now.

Not yet unfortunately. The good news is I can tell you it’s 100% real and will be road testing soon.

Thanks for the snippet! Can you give any insight at all into the suitability for right-hand drive applications? E8X in my case. As far as I know there is nothing past Pure Stage 2 available for right-hand drive E-Series N55s.

Edit: Except for the Houzworkz kit.
