    Hey mate.
    When I had intentions of doing it , I rang around to several places and nobody wanted to touch the job.
    I made it clear ,I'd have all the parts etc ...
    From memory I rang eastern turbo , Mtq, jpc, .
    They all gave me the spiel about why I'd go down that path with all the already off the shelf kits available etc .


    I spoke to dieseltec, and he was somewhat keen ,. It did say there is a fair bit of work involved so... Would cost a chunk of $$$.

    thanks Hodge.

    after they gave you the speil about their off the shelf kits, did they lead into complaining about online retailers killing bricks and mortar retailers. It just seems to me that if there is another product out there (BW), which is sought after, a retailer or installer would want to get on board and make a bit of coin out of selling/installing it, rather than directing the consumer back to a product the consumer isn't 100% keen on.

    I've also had a look at a UFI 18G with an intercooler and to be honest, there's a fair bit of coin in getting that installed too. I'd just rather drop the coin on a product i think i'd be happier with.

    Unfortunately i don't have the mechanical skills, tools or confidence to deal with sh*t if the installer got halfway through the install and had to give me a call to say something was missing or the piping wasn't right. My concern is heightened when there isn't a 'kit' available. Hence i appreciate the installer also adds a few $s to take on the risk and previous R&D for getting the kit/install right.

    thanks again.

    Looking back I should have done this when the chance presented itself. The rep I use to get the borg Warner's through at mtq was keen to do a kit. Unfortunately I didn't have the time to give him what he needed. This would have required a few variants of patrols with td42s. Then a standard kit could have been sorted.

    Never look back Mat Mate!
    A beautiful combination kit proven to many running on here and elsewhere too no doubt kindly sharing knowledge as always
    Commercialisation of any ‘off the shelf’ kit would be massively time draining even after full R&D bulletproof idiot release IMHO
    So many variables on installations and our ‘plug & play’ new world expectations could fill your ‘inbox’ with wacky queries like:

    “Why does my second 120ah battery still rub against the mild steel custom welded bend my mates friend bent up for me”

    Negative thoughts I know but Millennials are out there
