I've discussed this product before on various boards. This system doesn't defy physics itself so don't fool yourself into thinking that not having a system won't let me give valid input.
If you think articles by a magazine aren't biased, you have a lot to learn. Magazine articles can be entertaining most of the time but I hardly consider them the end all of opinions.
When you have the balls to post something about this on the tech forum, go for it and we'll discuss this in better details.
If you knew me in person, you definitely would not talk like that to my face... nobody does!!! It's real easy to talk trash to person you know nothing about and will never see. Rather than start some meaningless waste-of-bandwidth with a thread-bashing-cyber-brawl, I will be the bigger man and show you some respect.
The magazines I am referring to are used as sources of information, not necessarily for entertainment purposes (we're not talking about Star or National Inquire). They inform the public of new products and their performance. The goal of the publication is to provide a non-biased evaluation of an event or subject. Think about it... have you ever read an article that bashed a product due to its poor performance? I sure have! Featured articles are NOT paid advertisements!!!! ONCE AGAIN... you didn't read the articles! So here is a synopsis: I am not affiliated with STS. I am not endorsing STS. I do not own a STS product. I am not selling STS products or any other products for that matter. Some guys who are not affiliated with STS installed and dynoed the turbo system on a vehicle. They wrote about the installation and performance and published the results in a magazine for all who want know. This is the same process that the members of Supraforums follow!
On the other hand, even biased information can be valuable. Have you ever read a manufacture's product brochure? Or visited the manufacturer’s website? How about a vendors description of a product. Guess what... all biased!!!
I hate unsubstantiated claims just as much as you indicated. We have this in common, as I've mentioned this in other posts as well. If a person doesn't have first hand knowledge, they should "shut up and color!" Otherwise, they're just blowing hot air. Who cares? I sure don't care if Billy Bob knows a guy who heard his cousin knew a guy who heard something about something. It's all hear-say. Not valid.
Now if you want to attempt to discuss "physics" of a product... unless you are an engineer-type, product developer, installer, have first hand experience, or actually own the product, (which you may be all of these… and I may be all of these), all your doing is speculating and perhaps making yourself look stupid to those readers who do actually know the "physics" of what is going on. That's your prerogative. Meaningless threads suck.
I am an advocate of meaningful discussion. A person has the right to state an opinon, or ask questions, but they shouldn’t fall back on their high school science class and make 1000’s of posts pretending they know what they are talking about… no matter where a thread is posted. I believe the term is “poser”.
As far as I’m concerned, ZombieSS is the only person so far with a valid/objective post on this thread. If you read my first post I was simply requesting more information from him. ZombieSS would be considered the “resident expert”.
Just what exact "techinical pros and cons" can you contribute to the discussion?
I've wasted too much of your valuable time, as well as my own!
Let's move on.....
