I can only assume two things either the info would hurt them or just dont care about what people on this site think or say about them. But a company is only as good as its reputation and they are allowing that to be determined/influenced by their refusal to stand up for their product.
I had a conversation with Vince last week and he will release the information when he is given the OK by his attorney. As said by others in the thread, the fact remains, no one with an IPR system has had any issue; in fact, we're all quite thrilled. Secondly, much of what is asked for has been provided; i.e. does the filter have a bypass, what is the filter part number, is the pressure reduced, etc.... Vince is bummed his system is getting drilled on here but his confidence lies in his R&D. He doesn't like being slandered on here but knows his kit will hold up to the scrutiny and is waiting for the "OK" to release the info.
I agree with the above comment, though (if it matters). As a member running Vince's system, I believe it should be the customer who calls out a manufacturer, not their competition. It has always been my belief that whoever you call will have the "best product" as it's their job to sell it to you. It's normally up to individuals running said products to evaluate the available products for their uses and give others the pros and cons. Just food for thought. All is information that very well SHOULD be provided by Vince. These things should be provided to me, Joe A, and other potential and existing customers, not BPD. The personal shots and bold-face accusations of shoddy engineering based on lack of info provided (not based on an existing customer with a blown engine which would at leas give you cause for the accusation) is uncalled for.
