Hi rs999,

Our kit includes a heat shield to protect the battery from heat created by the turbo system. Better photos of the heat shield are coming soon.

Does the front bumper need to come off for install?

In Arizona with summers around 120 degrees F .... I can't imagine a non-intercooled turbocharged car working properly.

Official dyno graphs will be released when the kit is released publicly.

Cheers!
Hope to see the dyno when it's released. I just don't like the idea of commenting with money to buy something without all the information provided up front

you;re using an air to air heat exchanger under an enclosed hood in an area of very little airflow? Why not use an air/water exchanger?

The turbo placement is right above where the factory exhaust routes.

I believe it replaces the overpipe, much like PTuning turbo kit does (although they have the turbo mounted low and also use an intercooler)

We haven't tested it, but just by looking at RHD engine bay photos it doesn't look like it will work.

Can you show what a "real tune can do"

Please understand people are a little skepical about this design.
We completely understand being skeptical and wanting additional information for a new product.

The HP and TQ gain numbers are based on the difference between our own BRZ's baseline dyno numbers to our BRZ's dyno numbers with our Stage 1 Kit installed (all performed on our in-house Dynapack dyno), and then converted to flywheel numbers. We convert gain numbers for all our products to flywheel numbers (like OEM ratings).

In regards to more specific numbers and dyno graphs, they will be released closer to the official release of the kit in November.

Hope that helps.

Cheers.
