TPR to ship soon!

Hey everyone! Getting things situated with my new shop finally. They are currently working on getting me an Intake prototype ready for my approval, then I'm having about 50-70 made (depending on available cash at the time)

Lookin at goin back to stainless steel or aluminum. So a couple color options and polished will be available.

I'm having 25 exhausts made as well. There are about 13-15 orders already so that leaves 10 extra.

Magnaflow is custom making the muffler for me (turn around would be about next week for them to finish and ship the mufflers). I have the pipes already bent, cut, and polished. Tips and flanges are on the way.

Just wanted to give everyone an update that turnaround is doing just that...turning around

More orders are welcome to speed up the process!

i'll purchase the whole set (i/h/e) as soon as it is available.

with the addition the camshaft (hopefully eventually) i'd like to see a pre-tuned map for the apexi pfc based upon all tpr parts.

The cams will be out before the header. Mainly because there is more money to be made in the cams, and it takes less money for R&D. My new shop has its own dyno and I already have a guinea pig that lives 5 minutes away from it grin.

I'm going to be talking to my shop about the Intakes again tomorrow. It looks like we are going to use metal for them once again. I will probbly offer Blue/Red/Polished for color choices.

Like i said before, any orders now will greatly help speed up the process. Pix to come!!!!

Well I am not dynoing the cams myself. Everyone bitched that they wanted an independant 3rd party dyno so I am giving the prototype cam to a fellow board RESPECTED board member and he agreed to dyno it.

Right now the GTS is getting the cam, the GT will also get one once i get more cashflow coming in and recover my losses.

Wellll...the prototype is ALMOST done. the biggest problem will be getting the cores made. since no one sells cores, my shop has to make them from scratch. Once we get a prototype core made and ground and it works fine, then boom the first group buy will begin. So, sooner than you think wink

The difference over stock cams is performance wink.

They will be priced according to their market. right now im aiming for about 1100-1200.

yeah, I dunno ANY company that does the kinda dyno requests you people ask for. I'd love to see you demand something like that of say AEM or Injen. they could care less wink

When the prototypes are done I'll personally be dynoing them for easy cuase I'm tired of everyone givin him shit about the dynos.

Dynos = $$$$$$ more dynos = even more $$$$$ so if you want that to turn into higher cost products I'm sure he'll do any dynos you want lol.

this is also why nobody else has dynoed it yet. I do it becuase I always dyno my new mods so I share the results. also I have to end up tuning the power fc anyways lol

so, as soon as things are ready, you'll see pics, opinions, dynos and most likely track times right away thumbsup

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

also for the guy asking for a Power FC map to be included - I wouldnt personally hand that sucka out for free. I can't speak for what cTPR is gonna do but that's NOT cheap.

last map we created took about 10 hours of dyno time. regular price which most people pay is $120 per hour so I'll let you do the math.

also I'm almost positive the simple map MWR made that most people still use will NOT work right with the cams. You'll have to get it tuned. thumbsup and you're lucky cause I told Easy_C that I would dyno it with the mwr map so he can let you guys know what will happen, good or bad.

Lastly I'm using my own $$ to help you guys with independent dynos so if you don't like em, dont bother complaining cuase I wont care either way wink

we dont know if the stock ecu will work. We changed the duration and valve lift on both profiles so I am assuming it might not work. I'm not entirely sure of the stock ecu's software capability. If its a dynamic setup that just accepts parameters and infinitely adjusts accordingly, it will work fine. If its a static setup with set boundaries and parameters, it may not...

i know the difference would be performance..i'm asking whats different about them? lighter weight?

mike (lucky) are you going to post up the power fc maps you do? that would only make it fair. just saying..i can tune a stock celica with the fc to get some extra horses without any perfomance mods whatsoever (although that probably wouldnt be very beneficial for the car spineyes )

i would like to see dynos of the cams with a stock ecu, personally.

and mike..glad you're dynoing something to get people off of chris' back..but really, understand that people don't want to buy things when the performance benefits are in question.

well the thing that gets me is why are they in question in the first place? Its not like im Injen and claim 16whp with just an Intake. lol ive even sent the dyno files themselves to people. But alas, this time around i guess it will have more credibility with mike doin it.

hahah i did see that 16 or whatever (maybe a little less but still) whp claim by Injen...thats some crazy bs spineyes some thing with TRD..they say 20 whp with their exhaust.

theres something to be said about accuracy and holding all other variables equal. sure, if i dyno my car at 100 degrees it'd be less than when i dyno'd it at 50 with a turbine blowing 60 mph winds on my intercooler thumbsdown i can't stand manufacturer 'propoganda'

good luck with eveything chris..everything i've seen from you i love. your stuff will be on my car someday rice (lol although i still want dynos tongue )
