Mike Murphy'* car was their test mule IIRC... Mike happened to be there when I was at Intense last year, and that car sounded cool with the turbo back by the bumper. Like a Peterbilt pulling out of the parking lot. I think they dropped STS because they simply weren't selling enough kits. I distinctly remember a time on BC when any random requests for more power or better mods received a half-joking reply from Todd saying, "Get a remote turbo kit!"

Honestly as far as service and knowledge I purchased my kit from ZZP/Stattama. Matt M. has been extremely helpful.

From what I hear CT has sub-par cust.service. I get a reply from Matt within a few hours (even after midnight).

You don't need a turbo cam to get awesome gains. I'll be running the XPZ, IIRC Merc runs the S1x, and many others run blower cams. A few HP isn't worth the $300+ for a turbo cam. Just an FYI the world'* current fastest 3800 runs an XPZ blower cam.

You can email Matt thru Stattama'* website under contact us.

Interesting info. I was also curious about making a Bonne turbo.......never in my lifetime though. I would need to take out a loan just for the parts
