why duz everybody hate on DA turbo?
ok i hear most comments like "don't get da, get sf" or "da's wack" or.."da's suck" you get my point, their comments have no facts to back it up...these people don't even have a da Turbo on their car, and their comments don't really make sense...i only know of one person who has a DA Turbo on his gt, and he seems to like it a lot..i myself dunno anything about their Turbos..but my question is what is the real reason people dislike it so much? is it b/c they don't give us dyno charts that prove the gain?..that duzen't necesarily mean their Turbo totally sux rite?

the reason is because people have paid david draper over a year ago for the Turbo and still havent received it...

thats 1 year of having about 4000 of your dollars in some guys hands...

... how does that sound wtf

there is only 1 maybe 2 now people with the DA Turbo kit. DD IMO is scammin everyone and may end up refunding a lot of money. my teamate already pulled out after 1 yr of promises and no Turbo.

fact - DA Turbo stage 1.5 (DD still hasnt given him the full stage 2 kit he paid for) ran 14.0 with a 2.0 60'

SF Turbo GT stage 1 ran 13's at LACR which is 2800 ft elevation thumbsup

also try to get a dyno printout from a DA Turbo kit. last I heard theres still never been one released. rofl

that kit is a joke IMO he shoulda never started the project if he couldnt deliver.

I wonder how much money he lost on that whole deal, too. You would think he would have a more vested interest in it considering all the money and time he put into it.

yup, the c2 kits have been putting down some good #'s.

you should post info about your tranny kit also when its finished. I'm curious how well the straight gears are gonna turn out. the pics looked awesome.

The tranny has a fully built inside, but uses the stock housing! It has straight gears from 1-4, 1st and 2nd is somewhat longer, also the 6th is longer for serius top speed and better gas milage. Becouse of the striaght gears, and stronger materials used, it can hold a lot more torque then the stock tranny, it has the sound of a race car transmition, you can change gears whitout the clutch.
The first tranny also had torsen type LSD.

I will update you whit videos, pricing, and availabilty soon smile One thing for sure, it will be for order only, you have to wait at least 1-2 mouths for every gearset!
So if you got a blown tranny let me know asap!
