So, what you get is a VMP TVS "stripper", a VMP CNC port matched elbow, JLT 123mm intake, 2.50" pulley, 90mm idler, SCT X3 handheld device, VMP Custom tunes by Justin Starkey, AFCO Pro-Series Dual Fan heat exchanger, 3x tank.

Everything you need til you're ready for a larger throttle body or a lower damper.

$4677.98 list. It's Friday afternoon and I'm feeling a little loose with the boss's money.

SO.....if you or anyone wants this package, call my cell phone at **BJVMP (then hit send from your cellphone) and I'll get it out to you at a phenomenal price....and I DO mean phenomenal!!

In fact, I'll do the price through Monday but you can't order online...only via my cellphone and I can't post the price.

Have a great weekend.

Bj,

Have a couple of questions for you:

1. Please tell me the difference between VMP package and Ford Racing package (13 TVS, elbow, 65mm tb) TVS. How much real difference is there besides the blower warranty. As far as a tune, you guys offer a tune for FR TVS 299 + 150. The ford TVS package can be bought for $2700, plus your tune for $450 = $3150 and you get the 65mm TB........ Can you beat that price (see #2 below)?

2. On your weekend package deal, PM me the price without SCT handheld, 2.5 pulley, 90mm idler, and AFCO HE (got these already). Can you add in a 65mm tb to the rest and still keep it phenomenal?

Thanks...

Wow, $2700 is a couple of hundred cheaper than even Tousley Ford Parts has offered it. That's cheap.

Now, to your question:

1. Ported inlet, cnc port matched elbow, different snout. It's all about airflow in these animals. And while you may not think warranty matters, I can tell you three of the Ford units that have crapped out in the past year. I know of one of ours that had a manufacturing flaw. Replaced under warranty. A few thousand bucks is a lotta dough to risk for a couple of hundred in my opinion. But then again people drive without insurance too.

The VMP TVS doesn't look like grandma's apple pie. I have NO idea of what the hell they were thinking on that one. I get the 5.8 since it's for their "halo" car....I get SVT. But the lattice work?


Short version on the Ford kit. They have nothing in the kit. They COULD charge even less than they do, but they won't. They put crap in that you don't need (belt, fuel rails, etc) and a nice throttle body. Realistically, you're getting a blower, a pulley you'll change out anyway, some junk and a throttle body for....let's call it $2700.

Now the math. Ours includes the pulley you'll actually want (add $150 to the price of the Ford, plus a pulley tool or maybe you can borrow one). Now you're at $2850. Add in the $150 premium that not only we but others charge for tunes for that blower. Sub total is now $3000.00. You still need tunes for both of them. $199.00

$3200 vs $3700. And you can get a Twin Jet 67mm throttle body with ours. Bigger. Better.

We're more expensive. When you look at the pieces and parts...factor in the warranty and unlimited tech support and the fact that every additional part you buy from us in the future will be tuned for at no charge......then it's up to the buyer to roll the dice. We know exactly how many of the Ford units have been sold. They're cheap. Money is hard to come by and we get it. That's why we create more value than Ford can through the warranty, tech support, service and calibrations. At the end of the day, you get what you pay for. Good or bad.

Wish I could sell ours cheaper, but I can't. A: Because we can't undercut our valuable dealers. B: Because we don't have 5000 'on car' units to force the manufacturer into lowball pricing. Trust me, they don't like it.


We're here when you need us. That's a good thing.

Oh, and your price for the special....email me please. I don't do ANY business on PM for security reasons. Thanks

So, are you saying the stock '13 5.8 TVS are prone to issues? Even more so than the '10 thru '12 M122's? Please clarify...... thanks.

Will send you an email for the price........

I love my Apple Pie along with a Side of (belt, fuel rails, etc and 65 mm TB). Oh yeah used all of them.

Warranty:Ford Designed this Blower to go 5 years/60 miles under warranty ( I was willing to take my chances )

And at the end of my day this proved to be a very good investment for the power level I was looking for.

The thing though to really consider is you can get the Ford TVS as a brand new take off for $2k or less. Pretty good deal for the money in my opinion. They have them at Rehagan Racing. How much does a 2.9 Whipple kit cost?
