Intelligent asking of questions, instead of blind acceptance, is part of what makes this forum great, IMO.

That is not the same as harassment. A company worth their salt should be able to reply with relevant information that addresses the concerns.

The stock e46 m3 is a pretty great starting point-- it's easy to make products that make the car worse. Many (good) products will make the car better at something, at the cost of making it worse at something else. Very rarely is there a product that only makes the car better. It's important that people understand the trade offs they're making when they select a product. Most times companies won't advertise the trade offs of their own volition (nor should they be expected to, necessarily).

I've had nothing but great experiences with Evolve's hardware (on e46s, e39s, and e60s). Because of that, I'm far more inclined to give them then benefit of the doubt over a company that has previously made shitty parts or is new to the market. But, by no means does that mean the people shouldn't ask questions about potential issues they see! Even more do during the design phase (now), where changes can still be easily made.

We have tested it to 10 psi so far.

Thank you! Do you plan to test at higher boost pressures in the future, or do you think that you might 'cap' boost at a certain level? Of course, this might not be on your radar or even a consideration yet either...in terms of testing to failure to discover the max psi capability. I ask because I read that you were considering offering a medium boost, and also a high boost option...and didn't know if you had established a peak boost for the high boost option? I also know that people tend to get greedy w/boost (it can be adddictive), and a handful will always figure out a way to exceed design limitations-lol

We will have 7 and 9 psi kits.
