Has anyone ever heard of LYNX turbos? They are based out of Switzerland and appear to have a very high build quality. Using ball bearings in a twin setup is very uncommon for our cars so I am intrigued by them. Being as they are in Europe I doubt anyone here has used them or heard of them but I'd love some opinions or reviews if you guys have any.

I believe others have already pointed out elsewhere, they are not ball bearing turbos. Just Zage out of Taiwan or if you prefer to call them VTT GCs by another name. They can be bought through Canada more economically, apparently. There are some other BB offerings out of a Taiwanese turbo manufacturing rival that are an option.

Just got done reading through on that. Looks like you are spot on. Oh well. Glad to see others have cut through the smoke and mirrors. I'd still be interested in seeing if anyone is actually using them though

Cut through exactly what smoke, and mirrors? A Post was made about this over a year ago when we released them. We personally designed every aspect of these turbos, from wheel choice, to housing design it was 100% us. We worked with Zage to bring the product to reality. We made a deal in exchange for them carrying the load of developments costs, they could use our design, and sell to the rest of the world while we alone got the US market. These turbos, were and are 100% VTT designed, and developed, we gave Zage permission to sell our design because they bore a heavy percentage of the development cost. Simple business

Sounds utter BS to me. You negotiated exclusivity in USA I bet.

It would seem you have lack of reading comprehension possibly. Yes we have full USA rights. I could post emails of ourselves sending Zage, all specs, approving, drawings, and making then redo somethings, etc. We also posted pictures of the turbos during the production process, but I literally would not waste a second doing anything to prove things to someone of your comprehension level. Utter BS sir, utter BS. You have a great day....:)
