Hello!

I usually spend most my time on Club Lexus forums but since I'm building a Slingshot now figured I might want to be active and meet some people in this community! Slingshots can be stanced too right? lol

I'm located in Southern California and currently just have a top mounted oil less turbo, tune, AEM gauges, and straight piped exhaust. More to come of course, I'm just getting started... :)

Welcome Jessyca. Be interested to hear how you like your oilless turbo. The technology is very new (and makes me nervous). Not saying that is bad, just will be interested to see how the new technology holds up.

Ask away here or post away or both. These things are fairly new so just about everybody is learning from each other.

Is it a Comp Turbo? I know they are out of Pomona.

There are a couple of big brake kits out for the SS...AlphaPower Sport is the one I am most familiar with. @SlingMods carries them

Hello! The oil less turbo is from Comp Turbo, the guys there have been super helpful while we have been r&d'ing this turbo kit.

Spools quick, doesn't seem to lag, and it is nice not having the restrictions with mounting and running oil lines. So far so good, no complaints with the new technology and have not run into any problems yet. Been about six months. Did blow the motor once all ready but that didn't have anything to do with the oil less turbo lol :p

Alpha does have a nice set of brakes for the Slingshot, but then again, all their stuff is pretty nice! :)

R1 Concepts here in SoCal used our Slingshot to develop a bbk that I can't wait to put on! We like to work with local companies here and help each other out!

When I wear my spandex to fill gas all I get is scowls from soccer moms in Land Cruisers and the occasional lewd comment from guys with a lisp.

Jessyca posts one pick and suddenly she's Paris Hilton 2016. It's not fair. It's just not fair. LOL
