Well I ordered the BOSS 550 from SS a few weeks back and its on its way today. I talked with Charles there and he sent me some pics of it mocked up on their engine. He's also using the pics of my turbo for their website. It looks SWEEET!!

Its a TO4E 58 big shaft and dual ball bearings with all the hardware.

:drool: I remember reading about this turbo while it was in development a long time ago... back then all they had was casts of it. Looks beautiful! When was it made available to the public?

looks like a nice high quality piece... i like the spacer on the exhaust manifold. i almost needed one of those too, my turbo came quite close to hitting the manifold.

It was spendie, (way more than $1500), but I wanted to keep the "look" fairly stock, so no tubular mani and external wg, and besides the dual BB T4s were way more than this without custom pipes. This bad boy will bolt right up. Plug and Play 550+hp!! Got to love it!!

Also looks like I'm getting the first commercially available one, there is one test mule out there on a guys car from ITS Turbo, and Charles @ Supra Sport has a 67 trim being built, but doesn't have time yet to get his car running.

I'll be bringing her to SILV05, but will have pics and dyno #'s once the new engine is in.

I must say this turbo took forever and a day to get off the ground but the results are worth it.

SupraSport is really coming out with a bang.

I don't think the housing will just bolt up to any T04 center section. I think the biggest hold up was getting a turbo manufacturer to machine the housing to fit the DBB center section, but you might ask SS, or check their website.

I know that polished and bigger than stock doesn't look real stealthy, but the proverbial "mullett head" in the 5.0 down the street wouldn't have a clue if there was a stock looking manifold and heat shields, he might (just might) get a clue with a ceramic coated tubular manifold and big wastegate sticking out of that side of the engine bay.

Matt you will have the first of our turbo's, you will diffenently like it when you get it. Can't wait to see it in Vegas!
To answere the cost question:
They range from $1195 for a 375HP stage 3
all the way to
$3,344.90 for 825+HP Q-trim
All our turbo's are complete plug and play. They include all hardware and come clocked with a install manual with pictures!
We use the spacer because we went with the "E" compressor cover which was larger than our previous "B" size

We will also have our new fuel rail out soon that will have a 10an inside diameter and can be ordered with 10, 8, or 6 an fittings.
Thanks
Jack
