Okay guys I have been at the shop late tonight and the Artisan twin turbo kit is under way. This kit has been under about a dozen revisions but the final design is bada$$ and being built as we speak.

I have upload some teaser pics for all to enjoy...

The kit is being designed and built in a way that it can be duplicated. We are not sure on the demand for the kit and it will be a little pricey. It is a very complicated kit to make.

The Artisan cat back tru dual exhaust is done as well as the Artisan Cold Air box. We should have these in stock sometime in Nov. I am sure there will be a press release on them soon.

thanks

Any idea what engine management they will be using? A good tune is key to reliability and power!

Great news! Please keep up updated on here about the exhaust and Cold Air Box. Do you have any more info about the box? What is changed from the stock to yours perhaps or any more info? :cool:

Edit: you might want to start a thread to get a feel for the demand of IS-F forced induction ;)

^Last I heard, none of the cars from SEMA have been tuned yet. They're all having a hard time cracking the ECU

Craking the ECU is Not that Hard.. use a Piggy back like the DASTEK unit
Thats What we Used back in 02 when My shop Top secret had the First Turbo Tundra.

They did amazing work and they could of tuned the ECU since I heard last but who knows! :rolleyes: We are just waiting patiently for more pieces for the F to hit the market. They are slowly but surely coming out though :cool:

I hear in general that Toyota Ecu's are very difficult to crack..Is this True? or somewhat of a stretched truth?:confused:
Is so imagine the Supra's Ecu getting cracked for the 1st time..

^^Heard the same thing. Due to the complexity of the ECU, its tough to tune apparently. Don't have personal experience with it but that's what I've heard :)
