I was told sometime in January when I placed the order so it seems they were spot on with their time frame.

I've searched a good while tonight and I can't find anything on them being dual valve or dual flow beyond speculation in another thread on this forum. Nor can I find anything specific enough to suggest they are similar to a basic Ohlins. Everything is all "tuned SACHS damper" and "engineered for the BRZ" type language. Seeing how these are part of an inexpensive package on an inexpensive car, I'll be shocked if they are any better than an off the shelf twin-tube Koni.

No of course they are not going to be as good as adjustable ones costing thousands of dollars but they will be an improvement (for track use) over the stock ones.

I don't think tunes are officially available yet, but several people are running beta tunes.
