MTW response to members::::
First off let me say that working with the members on here and customers made through here is mostly fun. Sometimes things get very frustrating, not just for the customer but for me also. I never not worked with anyone to resolve their problems with their trucks or turbos.
I started the whole turbo thing as help to offer other options, and to build my own turbo for my truck. The stage 1 is a huge success, and is a real powerhouse. I have always shared the information on to why things are as they are. I have never cheated anyone of any money, fact is I have lost money to help at times. I have never owned a business and didn't plan on having one building turbos. I was out to help and since the turbos were a cheap option the demand for them has gotten out of hand for a one man operation. I could expand and turn MTW into a really big company, but since the mods are not able to patent I don't want to invest over my head on it. I enjoy talking to customers and keeping the business is small, I will continue to do it.
Growing pains yes, not just in shop space but in supplies, and time management. I'm a one man show with a full time job that is secure so I won't leave it. I'm married with a wife that actually wants to spend time with me, and this last year with all the turbo stuff has been patient about it.
Fact is that I have built over 280 turbos and there are bound to be some people that are not going to be happy no matter what I do. I have been cheated myself and taken advantaged of be some, but I guess that is part of business.
I built the hybrid due to supply of the parts for stage 2, on some trucks work great on others ok, strange since the stage 2 worked great.
Speaking about turbos the stage 1 is a great towing turbo for max weight, why because it spools very fast, and has great throttle response. That is what you need for towing, hybrid will tow but not max weight, same goes for the other turbos that are bigger then stage 1. Stage 3 will tow 6000-8000 pounds, but anymore then that and not so well. There is a big difference between towing max weight and towing when you want a set up.
I want to believe that I have helped more 6.0 owners then not, I will continue to build turbos and help 6.0 owners, anyone that has talked to me knows that I care and want to help. I have had a lot of core problem, some of the turbo just can't use, so I have found parts I need to increase the quality and currently waiting for them.
Not making excuses, it is what it is, I'm not the most organized person so I get thing mixed up, and my old age isn't helping me at all.
I hope to get enough parts together to have turbos on the shelf, and to have a few shops have them on the shelf. The turbos do work and work well, hybrid may be discontinued in the future and my not have as many different options to offer.
Thanks to all, Adrian
