You know how mine had done. But for everyone else, I've had no problems in the past almost 2yrs with my Stage 3's. Multiple track days(15-20+) at 11psi, and drag/street driving at 14-15psi for most of that. I'm now running 17-18psi on the street and they are going strong. Still running sequential although my transition is set at lower to smooth out the intial 70+hp jump and the low drop out is set around 2500rpms to keep it in dual mode for the track because transition coming out of a corner makes for a handfull. No complaints or issues from me.

Customer service and tech support is superb! I have yet to finish my install but I'm eager to post it up once i'm finished.

I bought a s4 stage 3 from Bryan in the spring of last year. I had a little bit of a fitment issue with the compressor hitting the lower intake manifold, I ground a little more off the nub on the compressor and it fit fine. Since then I have had no issues with it at all, I recommend BNR to everyone I know. Bryan was nice enough to answer all my questions and is a very knowledgeable guy.

Made 452whp on stage 3's running 20.5psi non-sequentially. Crazy thing is that there's still more room in these turbos. I recently fitted a external gate to the twins so that I can hold higher boost to redline. I will defiantly make a post here when I know the final results.

The turbos were as easy to put on as stock and deliver their power very progressively which makes for high power that's easier to control. If I were to ask for any changes it would be for a BNR stage 4. Maybe a bigger compressor wheel?...

Installation was a pain in my ass... probably because I'm not a turbo guy. The CHRA coolant and oil ports wouldn't line up to any of the lines... apparently I was supposed to rotate it.

I got the stage 2... i thought it had a 3" inlet? Mine was only 2.75. Probably not a big issue... but thought I'd put it out there. A stage 1 was just a stock ht18, which this certainly isnt... but somethin' ain't right.

The cold side casting was ugly as FUCK. I had to grind the casting ridges out... sure was different than the pictures.

The car really hauled ass though! Thats probably why I never called to say anything.
