      The hardware is setup to run a Diverter Valve, which can be seen in the second picture. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Didnt look close enough. Though that tube into the TIP was PCV. Thanks for the clarification. Sweet kit, BTW. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Kinetic has sold 100s of turbo kits, and they all use these lines. Axles generally don't break at the inplut flange, they brake where the spline goes into your hub.
      If you think having stainless steel braided lines (rubber with braided covering) is going to stop the drain line from being knocked off if your axle breaks at the cup you're mistaken.

      so your saying those hp figures are just a rough guesstimate of what you can expect?
      did that car mentioned make that power at 9psi intercooled or non?

      The black 24V car was intercooled, it made 327whp @ 9psi. Kinetic doesn't offer a non-intercooled kit for these cars, the compression ratios are too high to make it worth while.
      I'm not sure if you thought that number was in reference to a non-intercooled setup, but 327whp on a non-intercooled kit would be totally unbelievable.

      dude your ****in stupid

      i don't know why everyone always thinks that. I have seen many cars pushing high horse power running 38mm waste gates. The waste gate can keep up.
      People just need to learn to shut there mouths sometime. People have complained for a long time for companies to come out with a kit for a 24v. The CTS guys came up with something reasonable for a good price and then all you people do on here is bash and complain that you would build it another way. If you don't ****in like it build your own kit. The more people bash the more companies are not gonna wanna do **** for you.
      Im also sure if you called CTS and you wanted some extra stuff or some part to be different they would do whatever they could to accommodate your needs.

      Ya rly, you could always run C2 software with this hardware. Like I said, the HP figures are going to depend on the software you choose.
      I'm not going to question anyones dyno figures, but Kinetic tends to advertise more conservative horespower figures, and I wouldn't feel comfortable making 325+whp on a non intercooled setup unless I was running water meth, because I want my pistons to stay in one piece.
      You guys better watch out otherwise we will be sponsoring your forum

      How many times is this kit going to be released by other companies. In every thread started about this turbo kit the forum users just get on here and argue about the lack of quality and dyno number produced by the kit in the pictures shown. The first thread we saw about this kit was from the owner of the car. That thread has been black holed b/c It can not be found. If anyone has it on their watched topics check for me. Here are the other thread that have been on here about it.
      This one from Devin @ Kinetic : http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=3893327
      You'll notice that the same pictures you posted were posted here telling us that what was shown was not a production quality kit.
      Please help us out and get with Kinetic to provide us with some production quality photos and some dyno numbers with the Unitronic software.

      Thing to keep in mind about that dyno sheet is that was with boost creeping to 13 psi. And it was a Florida dyno. Also, Kinetic has been producing turbo kits for quite some time and I would assume that they probably know a little more about this kind of stuff than most of us.

      The kits are in production, complete kit pictures will come out whenever Kinetic decides to take them, they are notoriously slow as you have seen by the posts. At this moment half the guys @ the shop are on they way to a Eurotuner event in California.

      Why would Kinetic provide dyno figures for a kit that is hardware only? This is a hardware only kit, the hardware has made 327whp with tuner X intercooled @ 9psi. I don't see how anyone could have hard time believing the figures we posted if a non intercooled can make that using a smaller turbo. You could pair this kit with whatever software you choose... C2 Software, Unitronic Software, EIP software no software, SEM, this kit only includes hardware. If someone wants unitronic software then we can provide them with that.

      I'm not sure how a half priced labor thread from 1552 is related to this thread with pictures and specifics, it sure didn't look like he had anything to say aside from "cheap labour". Also, Devin does not work at Kinetic anymore, and hasn't for some months. Kinetic has a very limitted sales staff to provide answers, but I am in contact with the owner on a daily basis, so you'll just have to bear with me.

      I do believe it made that power..and you're right about the 1552 thread. It's early for me. I edited my post. We are here to bear with you. After the ETGP some new pictures would be nice.
