How much is the labor in hours and dollars to swap out the stock turbo for the Pure Stage2 in an N55 EWG X-drive? 16 hours is what I saw written and no one disputed it.

That's the part number for the Plumb Back version that is quiet. The part number for Dual Port version that makes noise, kinda like a loud intake, (because it vents to the atmosphere instead of being recirculated) is: TS-0223-1092. First units are trickling out to distribution right now.

Better than the gfb+? How do you figure that? And one could always buy a used oe DC to add the GFB+

Never said it was better to each their own... I never mentioned the DV+.
As far as buying a used one and installing it, cool. Ughhh... but why?
Did I step on your toes? Are you a fan boy coming to rescue? Not a debate about companies.

Both products probably do well. Turbosmartís Valve is not new, just new to the N55 and the only company that makes an actual plug and play valve. I was offering it as an option.

No, just asking why you thought it was better than the dv+. That's how I read your post. A new dv and the GFB dv+ seems to be around the same price as the TS unit.
