    So it looks like JPworkz has two bottom mount options between their tubular and log manifolds. My question is who is running either one?

    I realize the wait and that it'll probably be even longer than three months but I was just checking to see if anyone had tried them yet.
     
  2. I don't think anyone's running the bottom mount kit. He just released that design about a month ago and it's taking 4+ months for the top mount kit to ship.

    THat was my thinking as well unfortunately. I honestly thought it would be another 6 months to see anything about them.

    What I'm baffled by is how does he have time to develop another manifold and still be behind on orders?

    You have tons of free time when you're a scammer.

    He also gives preferential treatment if you're famous in the scene vs if you're a nobody. People waited (are still waiting) months for their kits while Omar got his in 6 days for his 135.

    I just want it to work. I will work on getting famous in the scene in the meantime.

    I honestly do not know what to think about this turbo company, some say they have top notch products and customer service others say its terrible.

    Depends if you get the turbo in six days or six months, from what I can tell.

    I would really like to see the results of this manifold/setup. Hopefully someday we will see a real one in the wild...

    The kit works but if you aren't comfortable waiting 3-6 months then you should look elsewhere. The on3 kit is cheap just swap the wastegate out. Furthermore you can always swap in a Garrett GTX super core since the vband housing is the same just a Chinese knockoff. If you bought the 55mm turbo you can swap in a GTX3076r/GTX3576r and if you bought 61mm then you can swap in the GTX3582r. If you wan to avoid the hassle just save a little longer and pick up a ADE/Doc RACE/Motiv/ACF kit.

    There is nothing wrong with the wait "as long as customers are aware of it before they make their purchase"

    Is this the case?

    That would be the main stipulation for me as a potential customer, but I'd never pull the trigger with a wait time like that.

    This is basically how I'm going to approach the top mount install.

    If you aren't aware of the wait of the JPworkz kit then that's on you. There's a reason why its 2700-3k. Its a one man op out of a dudes garage. No overhead means low prices but since its a one man show you're going to waiting a while for a your kit. If you cant wait and are on a budget then its on3. If you can save a little bit longer then go with ADE/Doc Race/Motiv/ACF

    Not every buyer spends their time on the forums to know these details about every seller.. it should certainly be made clear.

    That should be made clear to the customer by the vendor so he can decide which kit to go with
    Not all customers are aware of the wait time

    that is fine now. people who ordered his first year or so had no idea or any communication to know that it would take so long. even then some people got half a kit after 3-4 months.

    i guess at this point people should know that it will take long and communication will be sparce at best.
