    In sure Larry will chime in sooner or later with his experiences. But I don't believe he received any tickets. He came prepared wth a radar detector and also hit some Nast weather once he got into Texas.

    CFI Design:
    gotta ask what kind of power-gains were made with the turbos, and do you guys upgrade any of the internals? Also any auto-cross track challenges and numbers you'd like to share? I've witnessed the VF550 kit at VIR it was very smooth power-on power-off so I'm a little impartial towards supercharging, but if turboing won't give me power issues on the track i'd be interested.

    Hey guys, The car is awesome!!!! I drove it hard for 3300 miles without a single issue. Coming out of a BMW M4 that was upgraded with new turbos, meth kit, and tune, I can say this CFI systems is ten times better. power is smooth all across the power band, unlike the M4. I'll write more later, still under the weather from the trip. Washing your car at 2am somewhere in Texas when its 18 degrees outside isn't the best plan. FLU!

    This car made 560 to the wheels. I would assume the vf550 makes around 440 to the wheels? That smooth off and on could be due to the lack of power. We don't upgrade the internals and this is a safe stopping point for the car.We do upgrade the HPFP...Next inline would be the intank pumps and so on. Havent had a customer do auto cross yet on any of my kits. Would be glad to set you up for that though.

    My new quote "If CFI Designs didn't turbo your R8 then your car is slow and you paid too much"

    I'd be interested in understanding the benefits if any, on running the Garret Mirror Image Turbo's Vs the standard kit's 55 mm Precision Turbo's on V8's. Looking at the dyno charts posted on the CFI site, the Precision turbo's are making 534 vs 560 with the Garrets
