It would be pretty amazing. With all the weight I carry I could use that kind of power to pull it all.

Same, don't know how much, but I don't really care either, lol. I love it.

I have pretty much all my major receipts and I will not be adding them up. HAHA

That's one of the reasons I got the OR. We knew we were going to change just about everything that made the PRO a PRO. Plus we didn't want leather.

Video from OVTune, testing their turbo. It does look like a lot of fun, doesn't it?
Would anyone be able to help me with some info or people to reach out to, I’m trying to put a 52mm turbo I took off a 240sx onto my 3rd gen Tacoma but I can only find this twin turbo kit and nothing else, no piping setups, no exhaust manifolds, nothing for me to just put this turbo on. Any help? I probably won’t be on recently much so any info please reach out to my ig Jc_3.5, thanks!

From what I'm seeing Here it's barely hitting 330-350 hp
Money spent versus horsepower gained not worth it IMO

Yeah I'm sure the boost could be turned up but the motor would be toast, I'll wait for a production model if I'm still alive by then.

Why are they testing it in the grass??
