If you get a VF kit, it will do exactly what it is supposed to do...
VF is also selling their kit for a decent price and that is another plus of the kit. I am glad that at least now they aren't promising Stg2 or CARB anymore.

The S50 came with the good manifold.

It revs just like stock, except with a lot more power.

The VF kit is upgradable, just not from them. I upgraded to a 3.5" HFM, 3.33" pulley, injectors, water injection, and new tuning from AA. (9 psi, and am working on final tuning. Karl just sent me two new chips to test out)

Marco has a line on someone about to manufacture an intercooled intake manifold. Once you have that, there should be no difference from a RMS type kit. In fact it might be better because of the rather small size of the RMS aftercooler. It won't be cheap, but what in FI is?

Just to reiterate, VF has a quality product. At great price. And soon will be fully upgradable... If it's a choice between cams and FI, it's a no brainer to me...FI wins hands down. (especially with the manifold about to come online...)

The RMS brackets are pretty trick - my buddy's M3/4 is running an RMS stage3 setup.
The hardware is top notch, the software - not so much...

But the complaints are legitimate? I think many others would like an answer as well; not only because they are considering purchasing the product but to keep a company accountable for its statements.
