That's a pretty strong opinion...

Why not?

..

Your right there isnt a lot of people who have these because there new to the market. I called a dealer on these who sells several kinds of turbos Garrets, H2E etc. He said a customer dropped in a D66 which is a great turbo. Came back later and dropped in the Precision Turbo. Well he kept the Precision Turbo. Apparently the PT once it spools up it really kicks in powerfully, so u can really feel it above the others.
