I have contacted them directly and the response was always the same. They always say the will be releasing more information shortly. Just look back to the first post in this thread. It was over a year ago. They have been talking a good game but not actually producing anything so far. I hope they are serious about it this time.

Your point? They did design it and tested it. A year really isnt that long. At 5k thats cheap too.

I couldn't wait I put a procharger on my car and have been loving it. I could always change setups at the same time I do a forged short block though:gears:

They started talking about this kit on this forum back in august of 2017. They were saying information would be coming in the coming months. Then a new post would pop up each time saying the same thing. Well there have been something like 20 months since then. So I will remain skeptical of this companies ability to be truthful here until I see an actual product for sale.

I fail to see what they designed since it looks like they tried their hardest to use the aps design

This has come to fruition. My '05 has been selected as a pre-production car for the TT setup. Will keep the forum updated with progress. Start date is July '19.
NICE, and it's a MBM :drool:! Keep us updated and be sure to have a solid fuel system setup.

I just talked to Jon, and he said in July, which is when I planned on buying my turbo parts. I work right down the street from them and hope they come through with this kit.

Again they have been teasing this for 2 years at first it was every other month they would say information in the coming months. Then lame excuses about the f body group buy and then nothing. They are unable to be straight with the people on this forum.

I'd just buy a decent 110v MIG and build my own in the garage using all the proven stock manifolds.

Also,
The APS kit has a unique Turbine housing footprint. It's a cross between a T3 and T4 and not any ol' turbo will mount to it's flange without cutting and welding a new flange on each side.
I do believe there's a company that makes upgraded turbo's (Forgot who) but I don't know if they still offer them or not since APS went bust many years ago.

I will say, HS has a get rep. and I wouldn't hesitate to buy one of these IF they actually hit the market. I just wish I could get a larger (65-68mm compressor, 65+ Turbine outlet) on there, even if it meant adding external wastegates.
Hmmm, if they're willing to sell the hot side, I might just fab all of this myself as I REALLY like the turbo's down low behind the engine!

Come on HS! Let's get a REAL Turbo setup for our GTO's!

Not a cheap copy of my first TT setup, **Cough UPP*** :nono:

Guys I am receiving the 2nd prototype kit in July(deposit has been made). Huron speed is still bringing this kit to market. I will start a build thread once I receive the kit. FYI there will be turbo upgrades as well.

August 1st, "just waiting on the intercoolers to finish up and the turbos, which should be end of next week. Turbos just had a delay on the turbine wheels."

:mrrg:

Dont hold your breath
About to pass out.

Just caught my breath. Turbos, piping, and miscellaneous items due to arrive end of this week. Already have the tracking number. The intercooler is shipping separately.

Also, another person received their setup and has a pic of the turbos on FB > GTO Drag Racers group.
