They're about 10 years late to the market on this one so I would imagine that's why the pricing is ludicrously high. They have to make 300% margins in one year in order to cover their R&D costs.

If Rye couldn't succeed with his 20T setup I certainly don't see this getting far with the enthusiasts who are now buying $6-10k R's. But you know what they say....

Still kudos to iPD for investing in the brand.

Rye had a TD05-20G setup, a much better turbo than a TD04-20T (which is a horrible turbo, as far as I see it)

I stand corrected. Point was, his price point was significantly better than IPD's given what it included and it didn't seem like people were breaking down his door to purchase the kit.

There are a lot of people who visit IPD's site that don't visit Volvospeed...or any other forums for that matter. It was always interesting going to shows to see these modded vehicles and they had no internet presence, some people just don't give a shit.

Haven't been on in a while. How was Elton John? CES was incredible.

Hey Matt,

i'm not sure i ever posted about the show. When i bought my tickets i knew i was paying for ::better:: seats. the ticket said row FF. so i figured i was like 32 rows back, which i was fine with.

got to the show, nope. 6th row from stage. It was unreal. The band was super tight. The drummer was his original drummer 46years, guitarist 43 years etc etc. he only played for 100 minutes, but no BS. just played. He did most of his better stuff. 1 song i've never heard before and hope to never hear again. It had something to do with native americans.

very happy i went. If he's ever around, make a point to go.

the dead are playing in CHI this summer as their last shows. I reached out to tons of people. no tickets around except for thousands of dollars. i have hotel rooms booked and i'm not giving them up until i give up the ghost on that one.

Wait, so you think that turbo is a fair price?

lolwut

It's a price guys. Not price point. Ya, I've used the phrase myself. Now lets lean this phrase and syngergize it back to the one word it used to be.
