So I still haven't made a full build thread but I plan to. Just want to give a update on my build and where it is. I have a full build, Elite Plus 2017 gtr and the kit was amazing. I went to a cash days and Taylor @TSM was sending me revisions on my tune while he was boating on a lake. Taylor is a god damn stud.

Unfortunately, I had a boost leak issue so I had to bow out. Super bummer because I no doubt had the fastest car on the property.

Since the car was goin back to the shop for a few more little things I decided to swap to the Elite Primes. Cicio then offered me a version of the prime that makes 10 to 12% more power but is still class legal. Of course I said fuck ya.
So I sold my Elite plus's and awaited the primes. Unfortunately, the shop that was going to do my swap is to busy to get me in and I needed to get the turbo's off my car and to the buyer. There must have been some confusion with the shop doing the swap on when they were going to get it done. In the end it didn't get done but Cicio stepped forward and offered to fly a tech out to my shop and do it themselves. I love these dudes.

This will be my thread for my impressions on this new turbo that TSM has offered me but I wanted to touch on the customer service that I'm receiving. I own my own buisiness's and I'm one of the few companies left in my area that wants each one of my customers to feel like a million bucks when they use my service. I unfortunately haven't really received that same level of customer service very much lately though, until Cicio and team got involved.

My build,
2017 fully built 3.8 w/ race heads
Elite Prime Prototype turbo's (class legal)
Ets super race ic
Ams 12 inj intake manifold
Fully built trans
Making the switch to Motec and c1212 dash

I'll report back with numbers and trap times.
If I can get all my ducks aligned, I'll race this next weekend.

Sounds like a killer build man. Can't wait to hear more about the superprime turbos.

I've been on Ecutek. The phase 7 has been pretty decent for the power level. Lots more Tc adjustability etc. But, I'm gonna push for high 7s so, motec time

Changes the way the car accelerates at part and open throttle. Changes the way the tuner sees what its doing and how in a more understandable way; Tq vs mph table. it gives whatever setup you have more ability to run a full potential. If you drag or half mile, on a 1200whp+ build, it should be part of the conversation. The Dash is really only if you have 6k to blow on tech;be better spent on a billet crank, 12 inj or lighter subframes imo. High 7s is ambitious without doing some weightloss and possibly pushing the envelope. Tuner onsite is a must in that situation.

I'm pretty well versed in the advantages of switching to motec. I had motec on my Alpha 12 car.

And yea, for the hail Mary 7 second pass that I will attempt, I will do some weight reduction. I'm doing subframes, carbon ceramics, taking seats out and going to put the car on a 17 inch tire.

Outstanding. Didn’t realize the motec c1212 dash is available at this time. Interested to see that bad boy and what provisions are needed to get it in place.
